One of the testaments of age, is looking at gifts you receive each birthday. For instance, when I turned 8, I got a plethora of Barbies ranging from Curling Iron Barbie, Miss America Barbie, and Skipper Barbie. When I turned 30, the gifts were no longer Barbies, but thoughtful and interesting books. Each one, unique in their own way - revolving around career, fashion, and humor. 

The first one I picked up, I never put down - #GIRLBOSS. Written by Sophia Amoruso founder and CEO of Nasty Gal, the book is deeply personal yet universal. It proves that being successful isn't about how popular you were in high school or where you went to college. Rather, success is about trusting your instincts and following your gut, knowing which rules to follow and which rules to break. Each chapter is filled with famous quotes about life and career, the obstacles we face, and how to tackle them. Talk about an on point birthday gift (Thanks Bibi!). I wanted to share my favorite quotes from the book and inspire you, to be the next #GIRLBOSS. I know I am after reading it.

1. Life is short. Don't be lazy - Sophia Amoruso

2. Be yourself, everyone else is already taken - Oscar Wilde

3. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it - Ronald Dahl

4. The only way to support a revolution is to make your own - Abbie Hoffman

5. To be, in a world, unborable...It is key to modern life. If you are immune to boredum, there is literally nothing you cannot accomplish - David Foster Wallace

6. I never dreamed about success. I worked for it - Estée Lauder

7. It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things - Leonardo da Vinci

8. Why fit in when you were born to stand out? - Dr. Seuss

9. Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself - George Bernard Shaw

10. Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle - Abraham Lincoln
