She describes herself as a nomad throughout her adolescence. On the West Coast, she hitchhiked, stole, and dumpster-dived. In 2003, she was found stealing and was punished by the store, prompting her to stop. She also relocated from Portland and attended community college in San Francisco.

Sophia Amoruso Career
Amoruso worked as a security guard at San Francisco’s Academy of Art University while attending community college. She started Nasty Gal Vintage, an online store on eBay when she was 22 years old. This is the title of a 1975 album by funk singer Betty Davis. Amoruso’s store primarily sold vintage clothing and other items, and she shipped them herself. After six years, the store had grown to a $100 million enterprise.
After being banned from eBay in 2008, she decided to start her own retail website.
From $223,000 in 2008 to nearly $23 million in 2011, Nasty Gal’s revenue climbed quickly. In 2013, she was included in Inc. Magazine’s 30 Under 30 list. Her autobiography #GIRLBOSS was released in 2014 by Portfolio, a Penguin subsidiary specializing in business literature, and it was converted into a Netflix television series in 2016. However, in November 2016, the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, and Amoruso resigned as executive chairwoman.
Amoruso went on to create another company, Girlboss Media, in December 2017. This is a company that produces female-targeted editorial content, videos, and podcasts.
