From the tramp to the own model


The author of the book is Sophia Amoruso, who has spent her first money selling stolen books on the Internet - and who, with not even 30 years, have made a multi-million dollar loan.Company has put on its feet: the fashion label "Nasty Gal". Sophia Amoruso was not put in the lap.

Her beginnings were more than rocky: having moved out of home with 17, writing the college in the wind, she hitchhiked through the USA for several years. At the time, she lived on shoplifting (until she was caught) and low-paid jobs. The big change came when she started selling vintage clothes on eBay. Amoruso had found her passion ...

Management tips and instructions for shoplifting


Her book #Girlboss contains exact instructions for successful shoplifting (take as much as possible is the least noticeable). The book is also a hollywood biography of a young American woman. It is the embodiment of the American "rags-to-millionaire dream.

And there are a few important business principles for (future) business executives (your employees are not your friends). In short: a gripping book that you read here with your mouth open, laughs out loud there and on the other hand really gets practical tips.

Sure, she had good luck - but above all an irrepressible will. In the beginning, the decision - she was just 18 - was no longer enough to feed herself from garbage cans. She sold old clothes through eBay and was herself a model, photographer, shopper, supplier and washerwoman. Always accurate, always eager to give your customers a great shopping experience. Then it went up steep and fast. About your own shop to the international fashion brand.

Just start and make


Such a meteoric ascent suggests to say, "Look, I did it, you can do it too". Sophia Amoruso does not fall into this trap. She probably also wrote this book to show that behind the "sexiest CEO alive" (Business Insider 2013) is a woman who did not let herself get beaten down and did not let her down. So her book is also a courage book.

It does not always have to be able to jump out of the back of a group - but it can always be a confident life. Conclusion: A brilliant invitation to women to think big. Including precise advice to hire and fire people, find venture capitalists (and send them home), and why it's good to just start.
