You’ve probably heard the buzz about this book and maybe even read it yourself. In case you’re still debating wether or not it’s worth it, I’m about to share 5 life lessons I took from it: from taking opportunities to learning with your own mistakes in order to become a true #GIRLBOSS.
This book is about the founder of Nasty Gal, Sophia Amoruso, a successful woman sharing her story, mistakes and advice on how to become a #GIRLBOSS: “someone who’s in charge of her own life. She gets what she wants because she works for it.”
Lessons From #Girlboss
The Straight And Narrow Is Not The Only Path To Success
Being successful doesn’t depend on how much money you have, your level of education or the time it took you to get there. Everyone’s path to success is different. And everyone will face the different challenges in a different way and time.
If You Don’t Find What You Want, Create It
Sophia Amoruso always believed that she was capable of something bigger. That big thing turned out to be Nasty Gal. But she didn’t find it, she created it. If there’s no perfect job for you, create it. Learn to create your own opportunities because life is all about creating yourself!
There Are Secret Opportunities Hidden Inside Every Failure
Everything happens for a reason and every failure is a lesson. It helps you grow and realize what you want and what you don’t want. Take every opportunity, take risks and make mistakes. Every failure will teach you something and it will make you appreciate success even more.
Don’t Get So Focused On One Particular Opportunity That You Are Blind To Other Ones That Come Up
Sometimes we’re so focused on one specific goal that we don’t see other opportunities that might come up. Have a plan for your future, but be open to new experiences that might end up being more exciting. Like Sophia said, sometimes it’s good to let the universe have it’s way.
Embrace All The Things That Make You Different
Sophia Amoruso was talking about how she is an outsider and Nasty Gal anti fashion. Both have a unique point of view and don’t try to fit in, and that’s what makes the company so successful. Don’t be afraid to be who you are & embrace all the things that make you different.
“There’s a chance for you, #GIRLBOSS. So take it.”
