Starting a vintage store on Ebay made sense; she had a photographer’s eye for detail, a love for fashion and absolutely nothing to loose, having realised pretty quickly that higher education wasn’t the route for her.
With a debt-free start from her bedroom in 2006, Nasty Gal diversified and grew with it’s vocal but loyal customers to morph into a knock-out online clothing business worth more than $100million by 2012. With her first £1million in the bank, Sophia kept taking screen-grabs to send her mum in disbelief – and she hasn’t stopped knowing how fortunate she is to have turned her passion into her world.
Part memoir, part business insight, part ‘listen-to-what-I’m-saying-I-really-did-listen-to-my-heart-and-it-worked-out-for-me-and-so-can-work-for-you’ rousing call, #GIRLBOSS is an easy to read essential for anyone with that little voice in your head. You know the one I mean.
We could all do well to listen to this voice; be kind to yourself, ask for what you want, work really hard and anything is possible. Indeed, if you only take away one thing, I suggest it’s: “Give yourself permission to lead the life you want to lead“.
See you there!
