$100 Million.....That's Just Nasty!!!

Nasty Gal Founder, Sophia Amoruso
Most college students drop out and find jobs well beneath what their degree what have allowed them to have. Some even take jobs that have nothing to do with what they were studying. Or they'll just work to get a pay check. In some cases that can be the norm in this economy. Well for Sophia Amoruso, something sparked her creative intuition to begin a side hustle.

In 2006, while earning a mere $13 an hour, this side hustle became necessary and necessary indeed. She started an ebay page selling Vintage clothes and named it Nasty Gal.  Nasty Gal is a clothing page for young 20 somethings in which it offers classic pieces that are so fitting with today's trends. And of course, it's Womens' clothing. Not yet even 30 years old and she has already profited a sweet $100 Million in sales.

Having a large and growing following, she coins her brand as being, "the fastest-growing retailer in the country".    

What started out with finding a Chanel Jacket for $8 and selling it for $1000 is what put her on the path to becoming a multi-millionaire. There's something about selling vintage clothing online we see. 

Besides, they don't make clothing like they used to.  When in doubt, shop vintage!

....here's to being fabulous!
