#250 Sophia Amoruso: On The Evolution Of The #Girlboss Brand

*Just a little note that this episode was recorded back in January 2020*

Sophia Amoruso is the Founder and CEO of Girlboss, a professional network for ambitious women. Her 2014 New York Times Bestseller #GIRLBOSS, chronicled her early life as well as her experience as the founder of fashion empire Nasty Gal — and it was also adapted into a scripted TV series that premiered on Netflix in 2017. Sophia is also the author of Nasty Galaxy and the Girlboss Workbook. She has been featured on the Fortune 40 under 40, Forbes 30 under 30, Inc. 30 under 30, Fast Company Most Creative People in Business lists, and named one of Forbes’ Richest Self-Made Women. in 2016 Nasty Gal filed for bankruptcy and in an article on entrepreneur.com Sophia recently said: “In a six-month period, I was on the cover of Forbes, my husband of less than a year left me, and my company went bankrupt -- very publicly. At that time, there weren’t any young female entrepreneurs, or very few, who had experienced the level of crisis or anything like I had. It was a very lonely place to be.”

I have really admired Sophia’s honesty over the years and her discussion around public success and public failure and what she’s learned from both. In this episode we discuss all sort of things, the evolution of the #girlboss brand, taking risks as a brand builder, and how her idea of success has changed.
