Female Billionaires that Made it to the Top

Do the names Oprah Winfrey, Tory Burch, Sara Blakely and Miuccia Prada ring a bell? They are all female billionaires who are mighty proud of their accomplishments. 

They earn the dollars and then they make it into powerful spots. There are over a dozen women who are billionaires and one of them happens to be Melinda Gates (for obvious reasons). 

Ten are self-made females that have won their privileges on their own. The fashion moguls among them are: Sara Blakely, Tory Burch and Miuccia Prada. 

The first is the least aged and is the starter of Spanx. The second one began selling $200 ballet flats which caused her name to become very famous. And the third became the co-CEO of Prada which was begun by her granddaddy. 

There are those who made it in the computer business. Meg Whitman is the head honcho of Hewlett-Packard. Then there is Sheryl Sandburg, the COO of Facebook. Finally, the widow of Steve Jobs ranks high on the list. 

Coming to the main woman that rose out of humble origins and overcame adversity to make it big; and it is none other than Oprah Winfrey. She happens to be the only Black American to reach the acme. 

At 60 years of age, Oprah is a television celebrity and anchor with her own media empire. She has a magazine and also built a school for little girls in South Africa. 

The fact that Melinda Gates has a large share of Bill Gates’ fortune does not mean that she can’t make the female billionaire’s list. She deserves just as many accolades as an Oprah or Miuccia Prada. 

These famous, fearless and fantastic females proved that the sisters are doing it on their own in a man’s world. They are the light of a brand new world where women stand shoulder to shoulder with their male counterparts and make a fortune for themselves.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
