When I was questioning my life especially during my studies, I felt like I have no more motivation to keep on going. For me personally, it is hard to do something if I don’t have a goal or if I don’t know how it would help me.
Then I came across the book #GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso. It is not a self-help book, but it helped me to regain my motivation and keep on going with my studies. #GIRLBOSS is about how Sophia Amoruso built an empire from her online shop NASTY GAL. The way how she writes about her career is very funny and I can totally see myself in her in some parts. And she also reflects the business life in a way, non-business people also understands. There are advice books about business life, but I have the feeling they write in a way, I could not understand because I am not a businessperson, so it would be hard for me to take a first step into this world.
She has some nice illustrations in her book in every chapter and quotes which are really inspiring. You can feel through the book that she worked really hard to get there where she now is and she is also very proud of herself and I absolutely grant her that!
Sophia Amoruso tells her story absolutely authentic and reading it was for me like reading a letter from a friend. I didn’t want to finish this book in one day even though it was very interesting, I wanted her advices sink into my brain and let me reflect about it and I collected my most favorite tips for you:
- Don’t live above your limits
- If you want something, just ask for it, you can’t expect others to read your mind knowing what you need or want
- Concentrate on the positive things, don’t waste your thoughts on things that won’t help you in any way
- Don’t try to be someone else, be yourself, if you don’t accept yourself, why should other people accept you?
- See everything you do as a process of creativity
This book is full of motivational tips and I really recommend this book to everyone who needs some motivation and has some doubts about their future on how it’s going to be in their career life. And of course to all the #GIRLBOSSES in the world and #FUTREGIRLBOSSES 😉
