Its artistic sibling, “the sun and her flowers,” was published in 2017 and debuted as a #1 global bestseller. 

    Rupi’s words on love, loss, trauma, healing, and femininity continue to inspire and connect readers from all around the world. Recently, she released her widely anticipated third poetry collection, “home body,” a reflective and intimate journey that visits the past, present, and potential of the self.

    Her books have sold over 8 million copies, and have been translated into over 40 languages. She's toured the world performing, hosted writing workshops, and has been featured on Forbes 30 under 30 list, and BBC's 100 Women in 2017.

Thank you

I listen to girl boss regularly for quiet some time now and have recommended it to many friends (both generally and specific episodes). I have learnt quiet a lot about the world of business and entrepreneurialism from listening to girl boss alone but more importantly, with its positive and honest attitude the podcast continuously empowers me to believe in my dreams and aspirations, embrace challenges and keep going. Listening to it has become like an affirmation because it exposes the thoughts as well as the struggles that these amazing women have gone through to reach the place where they are today and it reminds me that I am not alone. As a listener who isn’t bases in the USA I just hope that they one day expand it to be more international, as I think it would be interesting to hear perspectives from women in other places in the world too.

My favourite podcast! ❤️

I've been listening to GirlBoss for over three years and it's been and remains a key part of my weekly routine. I've cultivated so much motivation to go after what I want in my career from listening to her guests stories, and also from Sophia herself, and her raw honesty of her own growth. So so good, thank you so much for creating this amazing series!!!
