3 Reasons Why You Need This One Book

Lets rewind back to January. I was in the Cleveland airport waiting to get on a plane that would take me to Riviera Maya for a week. Who wouldn’t want to be escaping the snow for a beach in Mexico? However, I only had a few magazines on my phone and a book I surely did not want to read with me. I walked into the airport bookstore and staring back at me was that pale pink cover of Sophia Amoruso’s New York Times bestseller, #GIRLBOSS.

So, why exactly do you NEED to read this book?

1—NOTHING is left out.

Sophia keeps it real on how she got to where she is today. The whole girl boss movement has taken the world and our millennial generation by storm and contrary to belief, this movement does not seek instant gratification. The whole idea of being a girl boss or boss babe is working for what you want!

2—You can feel the engaging content rolling off of the pages.

We all have our weaknesses and it is refreshing to learn about Sophia’s timeline of events that led up to becoming the founder and CEO of Nasty Gal. She makes you laugh at her one-of-a-kind personality, then on the next page makes you reflects on your own actions and what you are doing to be successful in your personal endeavors.

3—Pure motivation.

Lets be honest here, we are all a little uncertain about something at this point in our lives. Sometimes, we need motivation to kick us in the butt and get us going on the right path. We just need enough motivation to do something as small as showering and getting to class (Shout out to dry shampoo on those rough days.) The tricky part is it takes the RIGHT motivation. #GIRLBOSS is more than a “you can do it!” testimonial. It’s how someone became successful and made something of them. Sophia urges us to “not stop chasing after something even after finding success.”

Fast forward to June, #GIRLBOSS is now a Netflix series that I binge watched in a few days time and a much-loved book I still refer to when I need to feel inspired. In the closing of #GIRLBOSS, Sophia sends a fresh reminder, “Remember, I touched every piece of clothing in those thrift stores. You have to do that with your life.”
