PDX Women in Tech (PDXWIT) Book Discussion on #Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso
Bottle + Kitchen

PDXWIT is organizing a "no host" book discussion on Sophia Amoruso’s #Girlboss. Here’s what Amazon say’s about the book:

In the New York Times bestseller that the Washington Post called "Lean In for misfits," Sophia Amoruso shares how she went from dumpster diving to founding one of the fastest-growing retailers in the world.

Sophia Amoruso spent her teens hitchhiking, committing petty theft, and scrounging in dumpsters for leftover bagels. By age twenty-two she had dropped out of school, and was broke, directionless, and checking IDs in the lobby of an art school--a job she'd taken for the health insurance. It was in that lobby that Sophia decided to start selling vintage clothes on eBay.

Flash forward ten years to today, and she's the founder and executive chairman of Nasty Gal, a $100-million-plus fashion retailer. Sophia was never a typical CEO, or a typical anything, and she's written #GIRLBOSS for other girls like her: outsiders (and insiders) seeking a unique path to success, even when that path is windy as all hell and lined with naysayers.

#GIRLBOSS proves that being successful isn't about where you went to college or how popular you were in high school. It's about trusting your instincts and following your gut; knowing which rules to follow and which to break; when to button up and when to let your freak flag fly.

Jean Richardson will be leading the book discussion. Jean says about the book, “As a long time business owner and consultant I was engrossed in what Amoruso had to say about leading a business, hiring people, getting things done, and growing up. She learned the hard way many things that seasoned business owners might have told her—with a 21st Century feminist spin. I admired her wit, drive, candor, tenacity, and self- possession.

There are lessons for every woman and girl over 12 in this book, and plenty of lessons for men who want to succeed in business and in life, as well. I mailed my print copy to my niece and bought the book on Kindle.”

This book is a best seller at Powell’s, as well, and they have stacks of them. You can find the book on paper, Kindle, and Audible. Read the book and come ready to talk about it. If you don’t have time to finish it, come anyway. Be ready to laugh, learn, share stories and make new connections.
