Nasty Gal founder (and Lena Dunham stylist) Sophia Amoruso thinks that there's nothing wrong with Millennials and their strong, healthy feelings of entitlement.

"But my entitlement came about with an understanding that it was me that was going to put me where I wanted to be." This new take on entitlement must be working out for her—Amoruso was ranked at number 30 on Fortune's list of the top 40 most powerful people in business under the age of 40.
