#GirlBoss by Sophia Amoruso
“Learn to create your own opportunities. Know that there is no finish line; fortune favours action. Race balls-out toward the extraordinary life that you’ve always dreamed of, or still haven’t had time to dream up. And prepare to have a hell of a lot of fun along the way.”
While the hashtag in the title may seem like a pitiful marketing strategy, perhaps to appeal to millennials, once you move past this into the content of the book itself you will enter a world where you become empowered to do whatever it is that you want.
Essentially a memoir of her life, #GirlBoss chronicles Amoruso’s experiences to encourage young women to work hard, stand up for yourself, create your own boundaries and ultimately; hustle. In the world of social media so many people are looking for a quick fix, but Amoruso brings us back down to earth and will inspire you to work hard and project yourself into the life you want.
