Sophia Amoruso founded the online retailer Nasty Gal at age 23. In this highly original, part biography, part self-help manual, she takes the tone of her older self speaking to her younger self. Her younger self could have used the advice. A rebel at heart, Amoruso spent her teenage years rejecting convention and living on the edge. Only her love of vintage fashion remained consistent throughout her vagabond life. She began the eBay store Nasty Gal Vintage as a one-woman operation in 2006. Two years later, she launched Nasty Gal’s website and, by age 30, she was the CEO of a company with revenues in the millions. She shares her story in quite a lively way and offers pithy advice for young women who hope to follow in her designer-heeled footsteps. Even if buy-low, sell-high is old hat, it’s always in style. getAbstract recommends Amoruso’s common sense, workable advice to start-ups, entrepreneurs, investors and every wannabe “#GIRLBOSS.”
