Books Review: #Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso

#GIRLBOSS - Sophia Amoruso

I've been wanting to read this book for quite some time but the right time never came. Finally, I picked this up because I am in the process of launching my online T-shirt store and I thought to read about Sophia's experience in the fashion industry would help me. 

The book had me hooked from the first page. The tone of the book is so aggressive and pushy that it makes you feel like you're in a fast paced industry. The book is mainly autobiographical with Sophia recounting her journey. There are also quite a few useful tips on hiring, firing, getting hired, sourcing and expanding for those in the fashion industry and entrepreneurs in general. Though the book is titled #Girlboss, I think men could benefit equally from the book. There was no pushy feminist preaching. The focus of the book is more on work ethic and confidence. 

Overall, I enjoyed reading #Girlboss. Sophia is funny and motivational at the same time. The book motivated me to try harder and go for it. Even if you're not into these kinds of books, you will like it if you're fond of sarcastic humor and no-nonsense prose. The book was informative and entertaining.
