She is the Youngest Self-Made Female Billionaire and She Has an Excellent Advice for You
Many of the women among the billionaires ranks inherited their wealth from either their husbands or their fathers. But there are situations when often people use their own potential to make their wealth.
At age 31, Elizabeth Holmes is the world’s youngest self-made female billionaire. Her uncle’s death from cancer moved her to develop a way to detect diseases earlier. She dropped out of Stanford University with an idea for a better blood testing company that uses just a drop of blood her and founded Theranos in 2003 to make cheaper, easier-to-use blood tests with a virtually painless prick of the finger and a few drops of blood.
The results are ready in less than 4 hours. The method she discovered it is not just faster and painless, but far cheaper than the standard procedures. Her labs can quickly run a multitude of tests at a fraction of the price of commercial labs.
Theranos was valued by investors in 2014 at $9 billion, and she owns half the company, giving her a $4.5 billion net worth.
She loves her job and spends a lot of time working and all the money she gets, she invests them in the company again and again which leads to more and more money.
The most important thing is to hire the right people. When you look for someone to hire, you should actually look for someone who will say ” I really want to do this all my life, just this and nothing else”. In such situations you have people who are determined and motivated to do their best and this leads to great success all the time.
She says there are three things that are the key to every success in life- find what you want, fight for it and fight for it no matter what. Winston Churchill was right when he said-Never give up, never, never, never…!
And I am an example for that- if you determine your goal, there is nothing than can stop you from making your goal come true.
