Big things often have small beginnings.

Need some small business motivation? Huge things come from humble beginnings. When Sophia Amuroso launched Nasty Gal as an eBay store in 2006, she was a one-woman operation buying vintage merchandise, penning product descriptions and photographing items all by herself. Thanks to her unique vision and unwavering sense of what girls wanted to see and buy, the company now employs nearly 300 people and caters to more than 550,000 customers in 60 countries. Amoruso’s net worth is an estimated $250 million. So before you think about quitting, think about why you started.
