Secret to Success: Sophia Amoruso

Sophia Amoruso — founder and CEO, NastyGal

What's the best piece of advice you have ever received? 
"I love this quote: 'It was the straying that found the path direct' by Austin Osman Spare — not necessarily advice, but certainly the philosophy I've followed to find my place in the world."

What does success mean to you?
"Success is a scary concept. I think that being successful is doing your best every day, acting with integrity, and learning from your mistakes."

What's the one thing you do every day that is critical to your success? 
"Psychological flagellation. It's unfortunate, but I'd say that I'm a pretty good self-critic. It keeps me honest but it also keeps me on my toes. Ouch!"
