We have some bad news for Girlboss fans – the show has been cancelled.

The Girlboss herself, Sophia Amoruso, took to Instagram Stories last night to share to news.

Sharing snaps of her lying in bed, Sophia wrote: “So that Netflix series about my life got cancelled. While I’m proud of the work we did, I’m looking forward to controlling my narrative from here on out.

“It was a good show, and I was privileged to work with incredible talent, but living my life as a caricature was hard even if only for two months (sic).

"Yes, I can be difficult. No, I’m not a dick. No, someone named Shane never cheated on me.

She continued: "It will be nice to someday tell the story of what’s happened in the last few years. Ppl read the headline, not the correction, I’ve learned.”

Girlboss debuted on Netflix on April 21 of this year and was based on Sophia's autobiography, which is named Girlboss too.

Sophia's role was portrayed by Brit Robertson, with appearances from Ellie Reed, Johnny Simmons and Alphonso McAuley.


Girlboss is one of the most hotly anticipated Netflix series of 2017 and we couldn’t be more excited about its release.

The script was adapted from the memoirs of Sophia Amoruso, founder of Nasty Gal, and tells the story of how the entrepreneur built her fashion empire from the ground up.

The series centres on the core themes of girl power and successful women in business, but unfortunately not everyone was able to grasp the concept behind the female centric show.

Executive producer, Charlize Theron, admitted to E! News that the female-heavy cast raised a few eyebrows during the pitching process.

 ‘‘One person said to us, ‘There are too many girls in this’‘’ she said.

But of course, Charlize was quick to shut them down, replying: “And your problem is?”

The star also admitted that she wouldn't have taken on the project unless she was sure it would be executed right. 

''[The show] had to be authentic. So if we couldn’t do that I didn’t want to do it. And it was nice to have a bunch of girls around me that supported that and we stood strong.''

We couldn't think of a better person for the job. 

Girlboss is available to stream globally from today (April 21). 

Check out the trailer below.

One of our favourite online vintage stores, Nasty Gal is apparently filing for bankruptcy.

According to Recode, sources close to Sophia Amoruso say that she is preparing to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, in order to reorganise the business.

But that's not the only bad news, as founder Sophia is said to be resigning as executive chairwoman, and the company director Danny Rimmer is also going to step down.

It's reported that Nasty Gal conducted a number of lay-offs both this year and last year. As well as that, the company has been the target of various lawsuits from previous employees.

Sophia blasted into the mainstream when she wrote the book Girl Boss, which documented her journey from selling clothes in eBay, to running the vintage powerhouse.

It's a sad day for all Nasty Gals around the world.



The average person spends 8.8 hours in work every day – that’s a little over 9,000 hours a year which essentially makes up one third of your life. It’s crazy when you think about it, right?

It stands to reason that you will want to work at something that you love, but unfortunately in life there are little twists and turns that can lead you astray and send you down a path that you didn’t necessarily want to be on.

But whether you’re on the path you’re happy with or would rather be going in a different direction, these tips can help you to feel fulfilled at work… and maybe even lead you to that dream job.

Find a mentor
Find someone in your line of work (or the one you want to be in) that you admire and ask them to mentor you. Most people will have no problem giving you advice that they have learned over the years and helping you along the way. They will also be great if you have any ideas as they can advise you what road to take to achieve those goals.


Ask for an evaluation
This can be scary but also extremely helpful with getting you to better yourself and your work ethic. As some criticism might sting a bit, it will be an excellent insight into what you’re doing wrong and how you can improve it.


Stop procrastination
Every single one of us do it, whether we procrastinate by cooking, cleaning, watching TV or reading a book, you need to stop. Identify what way you put work off and make a strategy to discourage yourself from doing so. You will thank yourself in the long run.


Take initiative
Don’t sit back in the corner and let other people do all the work. Take your own initiative and do the work for yourself. If you spot a problem, fix it. If you spot an opportunity, take it. You won’t get anywhere if you sit back and don’t look for ways to improve.

Information is power
Study your industry the best that you can. Work environments are constantly changing, so make it part of your job to keep up with it all.  However, you don’t have to quit your job just to get back to studying or be unfocused at work. You can balance work and studies such as getting online MBA programs in California. Studying online is a great way to broaden your knowledge and skills without spending too much time attending in a traditional university.


Network, network, network
One of the best ways to move on up in your career is to meet new people and network. The more people you meet, the more contacts you will have and in turn you will gain more opportunities. Always treat people with respect, as you never know where they could be in a year’s time.


There’s no point carrying out all of these tactics if you’re not confident in what you do. Rely on yourself. If you are going to crumble after one hit, you need to readjust your goals. You will be knocked down on your way to your chosen career, but get back up and fight ten times harder. And never give up.

You got this.
