The Original Girl Boss

Sophia Amoruso is a serial entrepreneur, a New York Times Bestselling Author, and the original #GirlBoss. In this episode, she shares how she started a company from the back of her ‘87 Volvo, scaled it to a $100 million business, and how she has reinvented and rebuilt herself in the process.

In this candid conversation, Sophia shares the unvarnished truths of her journey, shedding light on the challenges faced by female entrepreneurs in the world of venture capital. She opens up about her experiences in creating opportunity, the power of saying no, starting fast and cutting losses quickly, and the X-factor that has helped her be so successful. Sophia gets real about her reactions and struggles with press coverage about her and her companies, offering insights into the complexities of balancing life and business. She’s leveraged these experiences to launch BusinessClass, an online course helping entrepreneurs launch their dream businesses and her venture capital firm, TrustFund.

Sophia and Amy Jo talk about their best tips to managing burnout, setting boundaries, and walk through step by step Amy Jo’s secret tool to managing her inbox. Sophia is a total Renegade – writing the rules and shaking sh*t up again and again.
