Forbes released its second annual list of America’s Richest Self-Made Women. This year’s list includes 60 powerful women who are worth a combined $53 billion. Included in the catalog are pioneers from the worlds of business, technology, and entertainment.
In order to make it onto this year’s list, Forbes required a minimum of $250 million in individual net worth. Each woman included is either a U.S. citizen or longtime resident and, according to Forbes, “substantially made her own fortune.”
So, which women are included this year? Topping the list, with a net worth of $4.9 billion, is Diane Hendricks, the cofounder and chairman of ABC Supply, a roofing supply company based in Wisconsin. More of a household name is number two, Oprah Winfrey, with her $3.1 billion net worth.
Dr.Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields are once again listed as America’s Top Richest Self Made Women – coming in at #26 (right behind Madonna!) – this says a lot about the legitimacy of their Rodan+Fields business. I can share all day about how great this business opportunity is, but when Forbes shares about it, people tend to listen up.
Here’s what they had to say:
The year’s biggest percentage gainers are dermatologists Kathy Fields and Katie Rodan, who together created acne treatment Proactiv and launched skin-care company Rodan + Fields.
Revenues hit $627 million in 2015, up 90% from the previous year, with more than 150,000 independent consultants [selling] products. That in turn helped boost their fortunes 72% in the past year to $550 million apiece.
With the US becoming increasingly dominated by Rodan + Fields, other countries may not be far behind. Rodan + Fields launched in Canada in February 2015, and Australia is scheduled to launch in 2017.
What may be lacking, however, is the people that have still yet to recognize that selling via a direct marketing sales avenue- sometimes referred to as a multi-tier marking business- is not what it use to be, and it’s definitely not something to ignore. Community commerce is a growing trend in retail that Rodan + Fields may be leading, but others are certainly trying to follow.”
There is 60 rich self-made women on this list but only 2 are giving you the chance to partner with them and make your own fortune with their band.
I love helping people with their skin and introducing them to a great business opportunity, one that has blessed me and many others.
Helping women contribute to their households while raising their children, paying off college debt, funding vacations and being able to give back. The possibilities really are endless and I’d love to show you how R+F could fit in your life!
When 2 two of the most famous dermatologists in the world (with one billion dollar brand under their belts Proactiv) offer you their legacy brand, you really should take a look at it.
If you want to find out if this business is a fit for you, contact me. I’m happy to answer any questions you might have. It never hurts to simply be OPEN. If it’s for you awesome! If it’s not, I bet you know someone I can help…Someone looking for change like I was.
