Sophia Amoruso Profile Information

  • In 2012, I traded my entry-level crossover SUV in for a @porsche . Dream girl @stacey_nishimoto came with me to drive it off the lot. I don’t say this to brag; I say this to remind you that things can be more than things. Things can be emblems, heirlooms, reminders of your hard work. When I made that upgrade it was like no other feeling. To have earned a car that drove as fast as my life was changing. To look around at the near-psychedelic and entirely unfamiliar ride I was on. I felt like Curly Sue or the Little Mermaid having just gained legs, using a fork for a hairbrush at the dinner table. There are few feelings like it, and how it manifests is different for all of us. In a past life, it was a motorcycle jacket. When a woman bought her first motorcycle jacket (I’ve placed many!) -  it was a wearable mantra that she’d be just a little more confident, a little bolder, and take a little less crap. Yesterday I got to talk about all of this and more with @badassboz @amanda_charchian @rosannapansino and a dozen other incredible women. Thank you @porsche for a fantastic afternoon previewing the new Cayenne E-Hybrid. #pluggedinwithporsche #ad

  • Hear hear! Last night we kicked off our second annual Girlboss Retreat in beautiful Colorado Springs with a fireside chat, an array of culinary delights, and 40 incredible women who flew and drove across the country to meet, mentor, create, inspire, and conspire together. I feel so blessed (yes, I said hash tag blessed) to be in the presence of so many buzzing, brilliant ladies who showed up strangers and shouted out their intentions right there at the dinner table. Manifesting over meals at its best. #girlbossxcadillac

  • Last night, Girlboss brought together a very special group to celebrate the brilliant women we’re so lucky to have in our orbit. ‘Twas a culinary experience by in-home chef service @theculinistas who have just landed their ingenious startup in Los Angeles. Mostly vegan and entirely good! 🥘

  • Two and a half years ago, I thought it was game over for me. I’ll spare you the details, but I was sure I was toast. Damaged goods. A failure, a pariah, a joke. As Frank Zappa said, “what’s the ugliest part of your body? Your mind...” Here we all are, living in our filter bubbles, narcissistically thinking that everyone is watching us with as much scrutiny as we watch ourselves. But we couldn’t be more wrong. They’re busy worrying about themselves. They forget our junk and move on while we live out every day lashing ourselves for our shortcomings, reliving our baggage that no one else gives a shit about. 
Once we realize that, it’s freeing. We can be nimble. We can learn fast and pogo our way onto the next dream, armed with all the hard lessons but sans baggage. I’m working hard to remember this every day. 
I’m so proud to have the @girlboss story featured on the cover of this month’s Entrepreneur magazine.  The culture we have, the talent inside our four walls, and the work we do couldn’t be more meaningful. Every day is an opportunity to do better, to heal, and to pogo through life in a constant effort to defy gravity. 💫

  • Beauty can mean so many things — it’s a noun, an adjective, a massive industry — but most of all it’s what each of us invites into our life to alchemize and amplify who we truly are. A red lip can be a radical choice that actually subverts conventional beauty standards. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, yes, but most importantly it’s in the eye of the holder. This is why I’m so proud of team @girlboss for producing such an incredible SECOND season of our podcast in partnership with @sc called #LIPSTORIES, hosted by @misszias and featuring guests like @theimpossiblemuse @luhshawnay and @jillianmercado. Listen in wherever podcasts are found!
