Well I am mostly a fictional reader and don’t do the realistic or inspirational biography books much (or at all). I just have this thing of getting lost in a whole new world with characters that are just so intense that it keeps you hooked till the end of the book or even the entire series. After all with all the drama in real world, it’s okay to get lost in a dream world with hot and drool worthy characters.
But a few months back I came across this book #GirlBoss by Sophia Amoruso (founder & CEO of Nasty Gal), and may I say, the read has totally blown my mind. The way she tells her story… you will realize how just being passionate about what you do will be an automatic motivation to work hard for it.
I love this lady and she is a true inspiration. For all the girls and women who want to achieve something in life; give this book a read and be a little patient in the process. I promise you will end it with true motivation, and zest to just do something … and moreover- live like a true BOSS.
Sharing few amazing Quotes from #Girlboss.
“Abandon anything about your life and habits that might be holding you back. Learn to create your own opportunities.”
“I believe the best way to honor the past and future of women’s rights is by getting shit done. Instead of sitting around and talking about how much I care. I’m going to kick ass and prove it. “
“I’m telling you that you don’t have to choose between smart and sexy. You can have both. You are both.”
“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. “
“When you hold yourself to the same standard in your work that you do as a friend, girlfriend, student, or otherwise, it pays off.”

“Alter your clothes all you want, but don’t you dare alter your inner freak- she’s got your back as much as I do.”
“Regardless of what your dreams are, if you listen only to those around you, the chances of your dreams coming true are very small.”
“A #GIRLBOSS is someone who’s in charge of her own life. She gets what she wants because she works for it. As a #GIRLBOSS, you take control and accept responsibility. You’re a fighter – you know when to throw punches and when to roll with them. Sometimes you break the rules, sometimes you follow them, but always on your own terms. You know where you’re going, but can’t do it without having some fun along the way. You value honesty over perfection. You ask questions. You take life seriously, but you don’t take yourself too seriously. You’re going to take over the world, and change it in the process. You’re a bad ass.” — Sophia Amoruso
