i finally bit the bullet and checked out this book. 
remember last year when every single blogger in the world was reading it!? 
it was even blogged about on ABM (which quite frankly, i had forgotten about it.)
...but anyways, have you read it? 
what did you think? 

uhm im kinda all over the place about it. 
it wasn't bad but i personally didn't see the whole hoopla over it, meaning i didn't have the need to devour the book in one sitting. 
and you know why i think that is? its probably because personally i don't ever want to own my own business. at least not to her extent and so i don't know, i wasn't in a hurry to finish it. but thats not to say that it wasnt good. it just wasnt for me. (talk about being all over the place.)
but i will say this, its amazing how she built her empire kind of on "accident." well not so much on accident but how she sorts of stumbled upon it. 
i like how she told her story and how she explains her journey. 
how she explains that its NOT easy to get from point A to point B. 
i wholeheartedly agree with her. you only get back what you pour in to whatever you are doing. 

basically what im saying is, yes, i can see why it was inspiring for those who run their business or those who want to grow something. its nice to see someone putting it all out there. everyone thinks its glamorous but it takes a crap load of work. 
it definitely has its motivational parts. 

i'll leave you with some of my favorite "quotes"

"#GIRLBOSS is a feminist book, and Nasty Gal is a feminist company in the sense that i encourage you, as a girl, to be who you want and do what you want. but I'm not here calling us "womyn" and blaming men for any of my struggles along the way."  
page 14

"you don't get what you don't ask for."
page 112

"i don't believe we're all fit for the time we're assigned. its a weird world we live in, and until time travel exists we've all got to make the most of where we land."
page 137

 (and also that jab at Paris Hilton on page 66. eek!)


have you read this? 
what did you think? 

thanks for reading! 
have a great {early cause im leaving for Vegas!} weekend!
