America’s Most Successful Women Entrepreneurs
More women are creating new businesses and amassing fortunes than ever before. As a result, Forbes has expanded its ranking of the nation’s wealthiest self-made women to 80 ceiling crashers, one third more than a year ago. Each of these overachievers has blazed her own trail. Some, like the entrepreneurs behind poo-pourri and Thrive Causemetics, created fresh products while others like Belinda Johnson, airbnb’s chief operating officer, joined tech juggernauts as they were taking flight. Still others, including Rihanna and Kylie Jenner, have figured out ways to monetize their fame, fans and social media followers.
