I just came across the new list of the self-made women billionaires published by Forbes and I’ve noticed that many of them come from China and their fortunes are related to real estate and construction. Oprah (one of my favourite TV stars) is among them.
It is a record-setting year for women on the Forbes Billionaires list. For starters, there were more than ever, 138 in the ranks, up from 104. Plus there were also more who started their own businesses, 24. Among the new women are designer Tory Burch and restaurateur Peggy Cherng, who runs Chinese food chain Panda Express with her husband Andrew. Zara co-founder Rosalia Mera, now the richest self-made woman in the world, is worth a record $6.1 billion, ranked no. 195. Prepare to be amazed and enjoy the full article here.
