You don’t get taken seriously by asking someone to take you seriously. You’ve got to show up and own it. If this is a man’s world, who cares? I’m still really glad to be a girl in it.
— sophia amoruso

It seemed only fitting to kick start miss/read with not only one of the most read books of 2014 and 15', but because it's a real life, kick ass, true story.

Whilst Sophia Amoruso may have founded cult fashion label Nasty Gal, she's an incredibly empowered woman in her own right. After many (and I mean many) failed attempts at literally every profession you can think of, a whim put Amoruso on a new path (watch: GIRLBOSS on netflix ). It ultimately led her to create what is now a global company, got her making some serious money, and landed her with a version of success.

While she doesn't discount her bank account's hefty sum, it's obvious her success that gives her word the weight. She loves what she does, she loves that it is hers, and she loves empowering women. Since writing the book, she's also launched girlboss.com which is essentially and extension of the #girlboss title.

If for what ever (stupid) reason you're the only woman that hasn't read this, or didn't pick it up because it was too much of an "on trend" read, I urge you to devour it. Stat.

FOR Someone wanting motivation and the courage to start
PROS Her motivational babble and brutal honesty
CONS You'll be jealous you didn't think of Nasty Gal first
ENJOY With a notepad handy
