Moms and Students Can Enjoy #GirlBoss by Sophia Amoruso

Posted on Jul 21, 2014 by 1 Comment

If you’re interested in starting your own business and like books with a sassy voice, #GirlBoss by Sophia Amoruso is a fantastic read. If you know a high school student or recent graduate who doesn’t want to go the traditional college route (and maybe even if they do), this is a good story to share with them.

The book tells the story of Sophia Amoruso’s journey from the early days of selling on eBay and having nothing, to building a $100 million+ business (Nasty Gal) around vintage clothing finds and gorgeous newer clothing from today’s designers.

I personally loved the smart, let-it-all-hang-out, no secrets story. It’s a quick read and how can it help being an inspirational tale? Amoruso went from dumpster diving for bagels to becoming the CEO and founder of a successful business, in large part by starting small and paying attention to the little details.

It may be just the reminder that you, a teen, or young adult trying to find their way, could use in order to turn dreams into a reality.

#GirlBoss inspires its readers to take control of their lives and make things happen, no matter how much it seems the odds are stacked against them. It’s not your typical how-to or motivational story. It’s a funny, fresh read that reminds you how much a situation can change with the right amount of dedication, passion, and belief that things will all work out.

It feels like you’re reading an intriguing story more than a guide, but there’s so much knowledge tucked into those pages, too.

    What a delight! I love the different shapes,colors and size of each block. Each block contains different vibrant colors and shapes. They are well constructed. I loved them and would suggest any new parent or grandparent to purchase for their little ones. This should be the first set of blocks you purchase for your little one, to help teach them colors. This will help child to enhance visual ability. Easy to hold for little hands.Got one from here at lowest rates
