Six quick business tips from Nasty Gal’s Sophia Amoruso

Sophia Amoruso founded her clothing company, Nasty Gal, over ten years ago. Then she wrote #Girlboss, a business book for women. Now she’s expanding her brand. She has a new show on on Netflix called “#Girlboss” and a podcast of the same name, as well as a new book called “Nasty Galaxy.”

We talked to her for our podcast Corner Office and asked her to share her go-to business advice:


Fail fast. Learn faster. Adjust accordingly.


Believe in yourself, but don’t believe yourself to be above any task, no matter how menial.


Listen to criticism from people you respect. If it’s tough to hear, that’s a good indicator you need to hear it.


That being said, you don’t have to take every piece of advice someone gives you. Develop a filter for what works for you.


Read often and broadly. Take a break from the self-help and business books once a while, and read or watch and listen to something that’s beautiful or funny. Inspiration is light that breaks through the cracks.


That 3 p.m. workday burnout can be made massively better with a cookie.
