Présentation de l'éditeur

'A #GIRLBOSS is in charge of her own life. She gets what she wants because she works for it'The first thing Sophia Amoruso sold online wasn't fashion - it was a stolen book. She spent her teens hitchhiking, committing petty theft, and dumpster diving. By twenty-two, she had resigned herself to employment, but was still broke, directionless, and working a mediocre day job she'd taken for the health insurance.It was there that Sophia decided to start selling vintage clothes on eBay. Eight years later, she is the founder, CEO, and creative director of Nasty Gal, a $100 million plus online fashion retailer with more than 350 employees. Sophia's never been a typical CEO, or a typical anything, and she's written #GIRLBOSS for outsiders (and insiders) seeking a unique path to success, even when that path is winding as all hell and lined with naysayers.#GIRLBOSS includes Sophia's story, yet is infinitely bigger than Sophia. It's deeply personal yet universal. Filled with brazen wake-up calls ("You are not a special snowflake"), cunning and frank observations ("Failure is your invention"), and behind-the-scenes stories from Nasty Gal's meteoric rise, #GIRLBOSS covers a lot of ground. It proves that being successful isn't about how popular you were in high school or where you went to college (if you went to college). Rather, success is about trusting your instincts and following your gut, knowing which rules to follow and which to break.Sophia Amoruso turned her hobby selling vintage clothing on eBay into Nasty Gal, one of the fastest growing companies in America. Her rise has been covered by major media like The New York Times, Forbes, Fortune, Inc., and The Wall Street Journal, and she has a devoted following on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Memorable Storytelling + Heartfelt Advice 14 mai 2014
Par T. Hagan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
When I first heard Sophia was writing #GIRLBOSS, I honestly thought, "Yeah, you're an intriguing person, but it seems a little early to write an advice book." After reading it, I believe Sophia wrote the book now for a couple of reasons. One, just to put into words how astonished she is at what she has learned and what she has accomplished. Two, she actually had a s*** ton of advice from some crazy work experiences and business decisions that she really wanted to pass on.

#GIRLBOSS tackles some of the contradictions people face in their professional and personal lives - buckle down and work hard but don't give in to "The Man," be considerate to customers and talk to the shy person hanging out in the corner but don't be afraid to fire people in a straight-forward way, eschew over-priced fashion must-haves while wearing Yves Saint Laurent platforms, ignore traditional business mindsets but educate yourself to make smart business decisions.

It's hard to navigate these types of contradictions, but Sophia's blend of a strong, irreverent voice mixed with heartfelt concern and well wishes for readers allows her to give advice in a straight-forward and humorous manner without coming across as preachy.

On one hand, I feel like the book targets younger readers, such as recent high school and college graduates, but even as a 30 year old professional, I found #GIRLBOSS a refreshing, entertaining read among the sea of dry personal development books and business reads. #GIRLBOSS gives me hope that tomorrow's generation of business leaders will approach their professional journeys with a surer footing of who they are and a relentless tenacity to match.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Written for her fans; Not Written for business-owners. 6 juillet 2014
Par Jihan S. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I love Sophia Amoruso for the empire that she's built. Like her, I'm also femail e-tail business owner, so she's idol. She found her passion in life, worked hard at (she is darn good at it, and built an incredible business that has been very much copied on the internet. That's her story. However, this is actually a self-improvement book for young girls who were ONCE LIKE Sophia - as a youngster, she was a typical American teenager, somewhat of an outcast, did what she could in her part-time jobs "just to get by". And in this book, she speaks to readers who were JUST like her when she was their age - she's speaking to the average Nasty Gal customer in this book.

I was looking for more business advice from this book - hoping for some advice specifically on the topic of ecommerce. But this book was more about her life and how to improve your character as a young woman in a male-dominated world. It was also mainly written for her fans - 100s of 1000s of young Nasty Gal customers who worship the ground she walks on and wanted to know her story. That was understandable. And it's a great book for youngters who are in need of guidance. But if you're a business person looking to crack into that brilliant mind of hers, this book does not satisfy. If you want to better understand how Amoruso built Nasty Gal, look up some of her interviews on YouTube.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A must read for all aspiring entrepreneurs! 6 mai 2014
Par Mane and Chic - Publié sur Amazon.com

I was so excited for the release of this book. I bought the Kindle version of this book the day it was available on Amazon. It took me about 2 hours to read it and I loved every minute of it. If you're a #GirlBoss and you know it in the depths of your soul, you MUST READ this book. It's real, it's raw, rife with wisdom, and worth every penny. It will certainly give you that extra kick in the bootay that you need to fearlessly make moves like a boss.

Sophia is a "baddie" and I can't think of a more relateable CEO of a $100 Million-plus-company to teach a crash course in entrepreneurship. That's what this book felt like to me.

I can't wait to start applying some of her tips, tactics, advice, and lessons (or whatever you want to call it) into action.

Let's go! Let's GET IT, Ladies!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Must-Read for this Generation 26 mai 2014
Par Elizabeth Caruso - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
While #GIRLBOSS is largely promoted as an autobiographical account of Amoruso's rise from a small Ebay store to Nasty Gal as it is today, the book is so much more than that. It's a comforting hug, a reassuring, "You're awesome, you can achieve whatever the hell you want," while simultaneously kicking you in the ass to actually get to work.

Amoruso's narratives are divided into chapters with themes - for example, her sordid past as a shoplifter, or "how s***ty jobs saved her life," included with (of course!) the entire history of Nasty Gal from small Ebay beginnings. For wannabe Nasty Gal employees, she even divulges some get-hired advice. Ultimately, the take-away from each chapter is nearly the same. It's immediately apparent that Sophia is an authentically hard-working person, who didn't come into anything by "luck." She got to where she is today by being unafraid to make mistakes, but always learning from those mistakes. Every day she plugged away, faced whatever new challenges arose, and learned all that she needed to along the way. Hers is a tale that proves "the straight and narrow" path in life is not necessary for all. With enough hard work, sweat, and tears, you can make something amazing for yourself. It's not easy. But is it worth it? Absolutely.

Throughout each chapter, #GIRLBOSS is a reminder to love what you're doing and work like hell each day. And if you don't love what you're doing? Well, you're probably meant for something else, but never stop working, or experimenting. Always find ways to be creative & love every job you do. And be patient; success doesn't happen right away. Always let your authenticity ring through your entire persona: in what clothes you wear, in the work that you put out, in the choices that you make. Think positive, compete with only yourself, and no one else. Sophia cleverly defines these things as the #GIRLBOSS attitude from page one, and lets her #GIRLBOSS shine through in every paragraph.

Long story short: Amoruso's first book is a highly recommended short read (2-3 hours estimate), especially great for young adults, or anyone who wants to walk away feeling empowered, with a fire under their ass to get s*** done.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Message Fell flat - not worth the $$$$ 14 juillet 2014
Par tnmng00 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I never write reviews on my purchases but I was so pissed that I wasted twenty dollars on this book! As you may of already guessed, this book was a bit of a disappointment. First and foremost, this book should of been more aptly titled "A college students guide to starting a business or entering the workforce." I didn't draw much value from the advice given in this book because I think the content speaks to those who have little to zero experience working for others or working for themselves. Thus, it perhaps makes sense that Sophia A. dedicated a significant portion of her book explaining the do's and dont's of interviewing as well as the value of cover letters. This portion of the book was particularly infuriating to me because it spoke to me, as though the writer either assumed I was inexperienced or stupid. The basic lessons featured in this book on how to conduct an interview did not merit inclusion in what I thought was going to be a seemingly thought provoking and inspiring book specifically geared to intelligent, female working professionals who want to set themselves apart from the rest of the pack. Additionally, the author refers to published works by Malcolm Gladwell and Susan Cain. Although I loved the fact that she incorporated Gladwell and Cain's genius findings in her book she didn't make enough of a substantial parallel between the mention of their findings and her own experiences - this portion of the book much like most of the other chapters fell flat. Finally, I found the writing less than stellar. I'm not opposed to an informal style of writing but I felt as though I was reading a paper written by a high school student - perhaps Sophia's ghostwriter felt it was important to capture Sophia's tone of voice for the book but again the writing was a bit too elementary for my liking. Not claiming to be a great writer myself but I'm not publishing a book.

I was so excited to read this book as it was featured on NPR but unfortunately the book fell flat for all the reasons listed above. My motivation in purchasing this book was self improvement and not because I'm a consumer of nasty gal clothing/products. After checking out the nasty gal website it appears as though they pander to a key demographic and thus the array of clothing featured on their site appears as though they raided the Kardashian/Jenner closet. Thus, yet again I was disappointed. In the book, the author described her fashion line as eclectic and fashion forward. On the contrary, after taking a peek at the nasty gal website it left me with a lingering feeling that nasty gal is a lot more like forever 21 than the author claims- there is nothing distinctive about the nasty gal line and I am still baffled that this company generates millions in revenue. From what I can deduce nasty gal has become quite a force in the fashion world because it caters to a key demographic with disposable income (rich high school girls) mixed in with a dash of good timing that resulted in an explosion of business success.

I wish that Sophia had provided more detail in relation to how social media has and continues to be the force that generates the momentum for her business- how social media has helped her business identify potential consumers and retain existing consumers in an age where the attention span and commitment level of the general consumer is quickly dissipating.

I will surely pass this book on to a high school or college student - and even perhaps to anyone I know who wants to start their own business, with a few key warnings about the elementary nature of the content and writing. The book wasn't all bad. There were a few key points that will be useful to keep in mind. I LOVE that Sophia managed to accomplish such success by her own merit without the help of wealthy parents or an Ivy League degree. I also think it was great, on her part, to emphasize the importance of treating others in the workplace with respect - other than just your manager or high ranking executives.
