Okay, so it’s only 9% of the world’s over 1,000 billionares, but doesn’t it make you proud to see that almost 100 women fall into the billionaress category? I’m not one of those, but I sure do feel prideful for all that they have accomplished.
Out of the 99, only 10 are actually self made, including Oprah, who has accrued an estimated $2.5 billion dollars in personal fortune.
I love to see among these women J.K. Rowling, the once-destitute now-billionare author, whose claim to fame Harry Potter has made this mom wealthy beyond belief. Doesn’t it make you feel like we could all do it?
Check out some of the other women listed. And keep reaching for the stars, because you never know-you could be next! (Come on girls, we need a little more estrogen on that list, don’t you think?!)
