Leadership Lessons from Sophia Amoruso

About #Girlboss

Sophia Amoruso is the founder and CEO of Nasty Gal an online shopping experience for both vintage and modern clothing. Despite Amoruso's lack of college education and a past that involved hitchhiking, theft, and dumpster diving, she has been able to create a world famous, multi million dollar company. What started out as a way for Amoruso to make rent by selling vintage clothes on eBay, has evolved into a profitable company led by a woman who never took out a business loan or who ever intended to develop a business plan.
#GIRLBOSS gives practical leadership tips that can be used in the boardroom, the mail room, the classroom, or the home for taking charge of any situation and making your dreams a reality.
