I tried the obvious route of hourly jobs and community college, and it just never worked out for me. I’d been told for so long that the path to success was paved with a series of boxes you check off, starting with getting a degree and getting a job, and as I kept truing and failing at these, it sometimes seemed I was destined for a life in the loser lane. But I always suspected that I was destined for, and that I was capable of, something bigger. That something turned out to be Nasty Gal, but you know what? I didn’t find Nasty Gal. I created it.
