It gained a cult following for next two years, and she later moved her store to its own destination website, where her business experienced immense success. Her fashion empire revolutionized marketing by building a business on utilising social media and became one of the fastest-growing retail companies. She stepped down from her position as CEO in 2015 and focused on her media brand named Girlboss Media.
