Sophia Amoruso is the founder of NastyGal, one of the biggest online fashion retailers – and named as one of “the fastest growing companies” by Inc. Magazine in 2012.
She had a bit of a bad ass youth, spending time hitchhiking near West Coast, dumpster diving and stealing (since she had basically no money, she took stealing ~very seriously~ and stole almost everything from bras to oil pastels.)
She started out selling objects on eBay, from her account ‘Nasty Gal Vintage’ at age 22. This evolved into an online retail store, and through social media she translated likes into sales. And the rest is history. Nasty Gal is now worth around $130m in retail. Read more in depth about her journey here.
She has published the book #girlboss, which I confess I haven’t read but it’s on my list. It’s also going to be the feature of some new Netflix content.
Check out her instagram because she is ~fabulous~
