If you haven’t read the book yet, maybe the time to pick it up has come. Meanwhile, here we’ve collected for you 10 Sophia Amoruso’s quotes that truly kick ass:

On being taken seriously:

“You don’t get taken seriously by asking someone to take you seriously. You’ve got to show up and own it. If this is a man’s world, who cares? I’m still really glad to be a girl in it.”

On money:

“#GIRLBOSS, when your time spent making money is significantly greater than your time spent spending money, you will be amazed at how much you can save without even really thinking about it.”
“Money looks better in the bank than on your feet.”

On old bad habits:

“Abandon anything about your life and habits that might be holding you back. Learn to create your own opportunities. Know that there is no finish line; fortune favors action. Race balls-out toward the extraordinary life that you’ve always dreamed of, or still haven’t had time to dream up. And prepare to have a hell of a lot of fun along the way.”

On asking for what you want:

“If you’re frustrated because you’re not getting what you want, stop for a second: Have you actually flat-out asked for it? If you haven’t, stop complaining. You can’t expect the world to read your mind. You have to put it out there, and sometimes putting it out there is as simple as just saying, “Hey, can I have that?”
“You don’t get what you don’t ask for.”

On caring what other people think about you:

“No matter where you are in life, you’ll save a lot of time by not worrying too much about what other people think about you. The earlier in your life that you can learn that, the easier the rest of it will be.”

On embracing the right attitude:

“When you approach everything as if it’s a big, fun experiment, then it’s not that big of a deal if things don’t work out.”
“If you believe that what you’re doing will have positive results, it will—even if it’s not immediately obvious.”
“If you approach everything in your life with a certain degree of intention, you can affect the outcome. At the absolute minimum, you will affect how you feel about the outcome and that is ultimately what matters the most.”
