This was my favourite book in 2015 and thought I’d share with all, as January is a month for motivation and empowerment, go girl!
As long as I can remember, I’ve not read such an empowering book for a long while, sorry if I fell asleep on the plane with LEAN IN, as I felt much resonated with this book and pick it as Good Read of the Year. Needless to elaborate who and what this book is about, yes, the vintage-cool girl Los Angeles hot e-commerce Nasty Gal, and the one and only- Sophia Amoruso.
Reading books about business and entrepreneurs is essential in life, we learn from other’s mistakes and I seek these books as people sharing their wisdom of knowledges, why not absorb them if they want to share? Not to say that I’ve read a lot of them, since sometimes they tend to get bored or we do not felt related to, but keep learning and reading are always a good goal. 🙂 CEO Sophia Amoruso is not the typical 9-5 boss or the girl who had her resumes check with prestigious schools, she is down-to-earth, needless to say she is someone like us trying to find ways to make ends meet. She works her way from the bottom up, a better definition would be- same as the 99% normal people like us who create ourselves worthy not through any connections or relationships.
#GIRLBOSS is very witty, an unstoppable book that said about life close to you and me and will keep you going for hours! I would not spill the bean what’s in there as I hope you’ll be able to find a piece of yourself through lines as we girls in our 20-x-something creating our states of empire. If you are still in university and can read Chinese(as i’ve not written these articles in English back then), can go ahead to find how to build yourself starting university from Personal where I share how I scored part time jobs and internship back in university. One thing I would tell myself back in the days would be- built a portfolio site with the simplest way starting from a blog, and don’t let your friend’s stupid comments stop you, like what I am doing right now 🙂
My favourite quote from the book: Failure is your invention
“Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.” -George Bernard Shaw
閱讀企業家與品牌集團如何經營他們的王國故事對於我們的生活是很重要，從中學習他人的經驗、失敗經歷，我也將這些書視為企業家的大氣度樂意分享他們的心血結晶。當他人願意分享時，我們何不細細聆聽呢？ 這兒不是說我看了很多相關書，畢竟有時候有些內容也挺無聊也與自己的連結度甚低無法感興趣，但保持學習與閱讀一直都是很重要的習慣 🙂 CEO Sophia Amoruso 不是我們耳熟朝九晚五系列老闆，攤開履歷如數家珍的名校學歷，她與我們一樣只是平凡人盡心盡力努力生活。 她從最基層開始做起，我們這樣說好了−她與99%的我們一樣：創造自己的價值而非靠關係擁有今天。
“人生不是在找尋自己，而是在創造自己” -George Bernard Shaw
