At age 22, Sophia Amoruso had dropped out of school, was broke, directionless, and had taken a job just for the health insurance. Now 32, she’s on Forbes’ Richest Self Made-Women list and ranks higher than Beyonce.
As the founder and executive chairman of Nasty Gal, America’s fastest growing online retailer, Sophia is an e-commerce phenomenon. But she’s never been a typical CEO, or a typical anything! Heard the term #Girlboss? Well Sophia is behind it, penning the international best-seller of the same name in 2014 and sparking a movement empowering female entrepreneurs around the world.
She’s on her way to Australia for the very first time and guess what? It’s exclusively for Business Chicks! Join us for brekky with Sophia to hear her tell her story – and we’re going to ask her why is it Girlboss? Can’t it just be boss? She’ll share the good, bad and ugly bits of her business journey – she knows from first-hand experience there is no one size fits all path to success – it’s about trusting your instincts, following your gut, knowing which rules to follow and which ones to break, knowing when to conform and when to let your freak flag fly.
Luck has got nothing to do with it. Nothing has happened by accident – it’s been a whole heap of hard work, risks and continuous improvement that’s made Sophia the awesome entrepreneur she is today.
As well as a beautiful brekky, packed gift bag and hundreds of other Business Chicks to chat to, everyone at the event will be gifted a copy of Sophia’s brand new book, Nasty Galaxy, a stunning coffee table book described as ‘part scrapbook, part inspo-journey’ worth $49.95.
