Successful Women in Business:
1. Oprah – the founder of Harpo Productions
Whilst Oprah may be best known for being a talk show host for several decades, what you might not know is that Oprah is also the owner of her own production company Harpo Productions, which produces dozens of shows, which don’t feature Oprah.
Oprah founded Harpo Productions back in 1986 and Harpo Productions now employs over 12,500 individuals. Some of the programs which are produced by Harpo Productions include Rachel Ray, The Dr. Oz Show, The Rosie Show and Dr. Phil.
Today Orpah is worth approximately $2.8 billion dollars, which makes Oprah one of the richest female self-made millionaires in the world.
2. Cashmere Nicole – the founder of Beauty Bakerie
Cashmere is a single mother and cancer survivor who successfully launched and developed a cult beauty brand, Beauty Bakerie which is known for its matte lipsticks which last 12 hours without fading. While Beauty Bakerie originally only existed as a website, Beauty Bakerie now has a flagship store in San Fransisco and has products which are sold in brick in mortar stores across America such as Forever 21.
Whilst Beauty Bakerie originally specialized in selling long-lasting matte lipsticks, Beauty Bakerie now sells a wide variety of makeup products. Examples of which include foundations, concealers, eyeshadows, and mascara.
3. Sophia Amoruso – the founder of Nasty Gal
Sophia Amoruso was able to build a multi-million dollar business without attending university or gaining any business experience. Sophia Amoruso is the founder and owner of the world renown fashion brand Nasty Gal.
Amoruso founded Nasty Gal back in 2006 as an eBay store which specialized in selling preloved vintage clothing. Today Nasty Gal is an international fashion label which produces brand new clothing, instead of offering vintage pieces. Examples of some A-list stars which have been photographed wearing Nasty Gal clothing include international models Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid.
How did Amoruso turn an eBay business into an international clothing brand? Amoruso claims that she refused to accept no as an answer and would keep pitching her idea for a clothing brand to suppliers and stakeholders until they took her seriously. So if you plan on emulating Amoruso’s runaway success, remember not to get discouraged by any initial setbacks which you may encounter on your road to success!
4. Kylie Jenner – the founder of Kylie Cosmetics
While many individuals may underestimate Kylie Jenner as a businesswoman due to her claim to fame as a reality star, Kylie Jenner recently took Mark Zuckerburg’s title as the youngest self-made billionaire in history.
While Jenner owns a wide variety of businesses, Jenner’s most recognized business would be her cosmetics company Kylie Cosmetics, which is known for its limited edition matte lip kits.
So if you dream of starting your own company, there’s no reason why you can’t build a successful multi-million dollar company of your own.
