“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.
