Hot on the heels of the Netflix show based on #GIRLBOSS comes Sophia Amoruso's new workbook of tips, doodles and fill-in-the-blanks that will help women become their best Girlboss yet. A graphic and whimsical guide filled with exercises, illustrations and plenty of scribble room, The Girlboss Workbook is designed for both dreamers and doers. It invites you (hell, implores you) to get in there and mess it up.
Revisit #GIRLBOSS's career wisdom and use it to draft your ideal cover letter, answer practice interview questions and reflect on, or even draw, your mistakes and accomplishments.
#GIRLBOSS started as Sophia Amoruso's story, but The Girlboss Workbook is your story. Use this book as a diary, a mood board, a stress ball and a tool for organizing and launching your wildest dreams.
I'm not officially in the target age group of The Girlboss Workbook (the under-25s, probably, including older teenagers). But I think this is a fun resource for young women if they're looking for some motivation in changing career - or just starting out. I knew nothing about the Netflix show based on #GIRLBOSS or about the author Sophia Amoruso when the book arrived - though I have now done some research.
This interactive journal contains lots of advice on achieving your hopes and dreams and starting your own business or getting a job. There are questionnaires to fill in, pages to doodle on or colour in and lists to write. There are also practical tips on working in offices (dealing with colleagues), savings accounts, coping with debt, managing your social life and much more.
This very graphic book is a motivational and inspirational quick read - one that someone can dip in and out of for ideas. It's a great present for a teenage girl deciding what she wants out of life.
