The Best Vendor Inspired by Sophia Amoruso

Sophia Amoruso

Diagnosed with ADHD at an early age and later withdrawn from school, Amoruso spent her formative years doing odd jobs such as Subway; After her parents' divorce, she later moved to Sacramento, California, where she claims to survive by hitchhiking, shoplifting and stealing from trash cans. The San Diego native managed to take a break in 2006, however, when she started selling vintage clothing and other items through her eBay account under the guise of Nasty Gal Vintage (named after a Betty Davis record); her earnings later increased from $223,000 in 2008 to nearly $23 million in 2011, earning her the nickname "Cinderella of Technology" by the New York Times.

Amoruso has also written a book about her experiences (which was later commissioned by Netflix into a full-length TV series), and although she has since stepped down as CEO of Nasty Gal, the company made $20 million from its sale to retail giants Boohoo. In 2017, Amoruso founded Girlboss Media, a lifestyle website for millennial women.
