Ambitious ladies out there, go grab this book. The Annex team consists of mainly females. We outnumber the men and are all girl bosses at our jobs. What does it actually mean to be a ‘Girl Boss’? Well it is an empowered woman who is not afraid to go after what she wants and do it well.
This is a great entrepreneurial read. Starting at seventeen, Sophia Amoruso founded her clothing business on MySpace, moved to Ebay and now has her own e-retailer website. She employs over 300 people with annual revenue of over $100 million dollars.
At twenty-nine, Amoruso has taken her spirit for adventure and passion for what she loves into a success story, and writes, “Confidence is more attractive than anything you could put on your body.” Her story of success will appeal to young women more so than your average business read as it is relatable and relevant to the interests of its target market. Amoruso focuses on not letting insecurities get in the way of having your voice heard. She writes, “I have three pieces of advice I want you to remember: Don’t ever grow up. Don’t become a bore. Don’t let The Man get to you. OK? Cool. Then let’s do this.”
Recent grads and women looking for an inspiring boost will gain perspective from this book and hopefully go for the career of their dreams!
