Forbes recently released their second annual ranking of ‘Top Self-Made Women.” This is a ranking of 60 of America’s wealthiest and self-made women today. These women are an inspiration to all. They have defeated the odds in a “Man’s World” but most importantly they did so on their own terms. They are trailblazers. And as a young college student with big aspirations, these women are the one’s to look up to: these are the women to listen to and to follow. Learn from them and when the time comes, do not follow the path – go where there is no path and leave your own trail.
It will be a tough road, but below are four quotes from some of the richest self-made women for when the going gets tough, including one from my fave Nasty Gal’s Sophia Amoruso!
“Success is failure turned inside out. If you’re afraid to fail, you’ll never succeed.”
“Buckle up, and know that it’s going to be a tremendous amount of work, but embrace it.”
“You are going to get through all the hardships and pain, but they are necessary to make you stronger and wiser.”
And my favorite…
“You don’t find yourself in your peaks, but in your valleys.”
