On Your Reading List
#GIRLBOSS is an entrepreneurial modern day rags to riches story featuring the autobiography of Sophia Amoruso. In this inspiring read, Sophia shares how she went from dumpster diving to founding one of the fastest-growing retailers and most recognized brands in the world.
As Nasty Gal founder and CEO of Girlboss, Sophia was never a follower. She’s written #GIRLBOSS for those who are willing to carve their path to success even when others don’t believe in them.
#GIRLBOSS proves that being successful is about trusting your instincts and following your gut; knowing which rules to follow and which to break; and about always staying true to who you are.

In Your Toolbox
Do something to build your network every single day. Make it a habit. The more you do, the more comfortable you will be with it. Plus, your business will benefit. Every day is an opportunity to get better. Connect with at least one person professionally every day. Try following up with someone you already know or ask for an introduction from a mutual connection.
