    "The first thing Sophia Amoruso sold online wasn't fashion - it was a stolen book. She spent her teens hitchhiking, committing petty theft, and dumpster diving. By age twenty-two, she had resigned herself to employment, but was still broke, directionless, and checking IDs in the lobby of an art school--a job she'd taken for the health insurance. It was in that lobby that Sophia decided to start selling vintage clothes on eBay. Flash forward eight years to today, and she's the Founder, CEO and Creative Director of Nasty Gal, a $100+ million online fashion retailer with over 350 employees. Sophia's never been a typical CEO, or a typical anything, and she's written #GIRLBOSS for girls like her: outsiders (and insiders) seeking a unique path to success, evenwhen that path is windy as all hell and lined with naysayers.

    In his book 'The 1% Windfall,' author Rafi Mohammed provides guidelines for large and small businesses alike to help them create a comprehensive pricing strategy for their product or service. Prices are important, but it can be difficult to know how to set the right price. Interestingly, Mohammed's book reveals that modest incremental changes in pricing can yield significant rewards that will greatly exceed your expectations. For instance, raising prices by just 1% would give Sears a rate of 155% growth in the percentage of their profit, and many other companies aren't far behind. Mohammed's tools will help you build a clear blueprint for increased profit and growth.
