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.

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.

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.

Girls Can Take On the World Too 19 novembre 2014
Par Bertha - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
Most girls are taught from a very young age that being pretty is their primary goal in life. Even in today's modern society, they tend to be steered toward non-management positions in the business fields. #GIRLBOSS certainly challenges that stereotype and offers great advice for budding, young entrepreneurs in the making. The book is decidedly geared toward young women and girls, but I think there are many lessons that virtually anyone can take from Sophia Amoruso's experiences. She talks frankly and candidly about her experiences pre-success and post-success. Her storytelling is fascinating and fun and certainly much more relatable for young women than most self-help books. There's no stuffy language or masculine aphorisms. Instead, Amoruso offers a decidedly feminine, edgy, and ultimately helpful writing style that will appeal to an otherwise untapped market.

In addition to the advice dispensed by Amoruso, I'm always looking for other ways to improve my outlook and my personal and professional relationships. Around the same time I purchased #GIRLBOSS, I also picked up 21 Things You Should Give Up To Be Happy The name of the book might not do it justice, but it provides 21 supremely helpful tips on how to improve your happiness and improve your relationships along the way. After all, much of our happiness is tied to our work life and personal life, and this book delves into how exactly to achieve that happiness. The concept behind it is so simple, but the advice inside is worth every penny. It also pairs well with #GIRLBOSS if you're looking for a way to make actionable changes in your lifestyle that can improve your career trajectories.

In any event, I've been recommending both of these books to everyone I know because of the frank, no-nonsense advice they provide. I've been using them almost as mini-guides for how to improve my life, and, so far, they have been working wonders. Beyond that, #GIRLBOSS is just an interesting story about a girl who turned a mediocre, dead-end job into being the CEO of a multi-million dollar fashion company. If that can't inspire you, then I don't know what will.

She wasn't kidding when she said GIRLboss. Not for women. 27 août 2014
Par Lauren Niles - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I couldn't get past the first couple of chapters. While the book has a few great, inspiring one liners that are sure to be slapped with gold foil, a frame and a pin, that's about all it has. I felt like I was reading a seventeen year old girl's writing. I kept waiting to see "totes" and "adorbs" scattered throughout because that's the kind of rhetoric she uses.

Read if you're a teenager.

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.
