Sophia Amoruso became one of my biggest inspirations about 3 years ago when I first read her book #Girlboss. I absolutely loved the book and was so inspired by her lifestyle and rise to power through the internet. The book was filled with life and business tips, gave an extremely real view on life. Now, Netflix has created a series based on the book (and therefor Sophia’s life) and so far I really like it!
The show starts later in Sophia’s life than the book so I feel it might have left out some of her history, but I’m really hoping that in the coming episodes they address her past more. I think Britt Robertson is really great as Sophia and really captures the driven energy I felt when reading the book. I’ve never been to San Francisco but the show shot the city beautifully and shows how much inspiration can be found in one city. I’m only on episode 5 but I’m really excited to keep watching and see Sophia’s life played out in another way.
Here’s a fun review of the show (with no spoilers!)
Buy the book!! It’s totally worth it!!
