>Nasty Gal founder Sophia Amoruso’s new book charts her path from loser to leader—and she’s got tips.

BE RESOURCEFUL

Some women went to perfect schools, had perfect upbringings, knew they’d have perfect careers. The rest of us have to try things and find our calling.

DON’T ACT LIKE YOU’VE ARRIVED WHEN YOU’VE JUST BEEN INVITED

If you’re starting out in a job, don’t expect a big promotion after four months. It takes a while to build a career.

COMPETE WITH YOURSELF

Don’t focus on what other people are doing. Think about what you’re doing.

TAKE CHARGE

Before I founded [online shopping site] Nasty Gal in 2006, I was really bad at working for other people. As my own boss I see a direct result of my hard work.

SAVE MONEY

Don’t stop shopping for cute shoes at Nasty Gal, but live within your means. I always say money looks better in the bank than on your feet!
