This book is a success story of Sophia Amoruso, the CEO of Nasty Gal. I found this book so perfect for me in line with my personal goals.  Sophia's FOCUS on her goal caught me.  It inspires me a lot because of her notable and practical advices.  I am happy to share some of it.

Advice # 1: The more you experiment, take risks and make mistakes, the better you'll know yourself, the better you'll know the world, and the more focused you'll be.

Advice # 2: Confidence is more attractive that anything you could put on your body.

Advice # 3: Abandon anything about your life and habits that might be holding you back.  Learn to create your own opportunities.  Know that there is no finish line;  fortune favors action.

Advice # 4: Money spells F-R-E-E-D-O-M.  If you learn to control your finances,  you won't find yourself stuck in jobs, places or relationships that you hate just because you can't afford to go elsewhere. (Ouch! for this)

Advice # 5: Each time you make a decision or do something nice or take care of yourself; each time you show up to work and work hard and do your best at everything you can do, you're planting seeds for a life that can only hope will grow beyond your wildest dreams. 

Advice # 6:  Take care of the little things.  Even the little things that you hate and treat them as promises to your won future.  

Advice # 7: We choose what and how we believe, and our beliefs are tools that we then use to make things happen......or not.

Advice # 8: Your challenge as a #GIRLBOSS is to dive head first into things without being too attached to the results.  When your goal is to gain experience, perspective and knowledge, failure is no longer a possibility.  Failure is your invention.

Advice # 9: Create your own job.  Become the master of what you do.  Fully immerse yourself in your culture.  Be humble.  Never forget where you came from.  And always be polite.  Good old-fashioned manners can get you very far.

Advice # 10: Look up and look around, and if you're not finding something inspiring, then you're probably not looking hard enough.

It was fun reading it.  You'll get more.  So grab a copy and read it.  

Be Positive Think Positive!
