#GirlBoss: A Must Read


I really need to stop being so anxious about everything. The Bible says we should cast all our anxiety upon the Lord because he cares for us, need to stick this in my brain. Last week I was so nervous about my AS results, I thought I was going to throw up.I prayed about the exams but also studied really hard (faith without actions is dead remember?). They ended up being really great and I was so relieved and thankful. Being anxious gets you nowhere, it just leaves you frazzled. 




I don't know if it's because I'm getting older but I'm really into motivational books written by successful women right now. This is the first one I've read and I've added more to my list. I took down all my old posts but if you've been an avid reader of my blog, this book was on my summer reading list last year. Fast forward to 2016, I was randomly scrolling through books on Amazon (a favourite pastime of mine) when I saw it and it was sooo cheap. I ordered it right there and then. The company I ordered it from is called Book Depository.

PS: Delivery is free worldwide and no, this is not an ad. 

Anyways, I really like this book. I love it infact. Sophia Amoruso, founder of Nasty Gal , a leading etailer that made $300 million in revenue last year  tells us about her rise to success. Her story is very funny and sometimes jaw dropping. She made Forbes' list of America's Richest Self Made Women this year. Honestly, this book is so inspiring. It's not boring, it's like reading a story book. Every girl that wants to be a #GirlBoss in whatever she does should definitely add this to her reading list. Here are a few excerpts from the book that I loved: 

In the book, Sophia stresses the importance of controlling your finances A LOT.
And she is a person I'm willing to take advice from when it comes to money. Do you know she built
her company debt free? Unbelievable.


This made me think a lot. Nobody owes you anything.
If you want something, ask for it. Nothing is going to
come to you.

She used a funny story about a time she got a Victoria's Secret bra to
stress the fact that little things matter. The little things add up to make the big things.

I honestly hope you get this book and you read it and you love it. Thank you for reading. xx

  3. Would love to get my hands on this. Love the quotes you shared. Really sounds like a good book. Another one I want to read is Smart Money Woman by Arese. I read excepts on Amazon and it seems both entertaining and informative. Also talks about being in control of your finances.
