I came across some very inspiring resources I felt would be of great support to you in a few ways:

  1. Remind you to dream bigger. (It did for me!)
  2. Know what seems impossible is possible. Tenacity and curiosity will always serve you well.
  3. Wealth and success is for you, too. Not only Forbes 60 self-made richest women
  4. Recommended techie expert for your business.
  5. Strategies for referral business without asking.

Here goes!

A. Who’s a fan of Barbara Corcoran? Shark Tank put her on the map although she had a very successful Real Estate company when they approached her to be on the show. She now has a new podcast, Business Unusual and book, Shark Tales.

Backstory: She started her $5 Billion Real Estate business, The Corcoran Group, with a $1,000 loan from a friend and bought $80 ad listings in the NY Times Real Estate section. This fireball has an entertaining raw story of rags to riches. She got her moxie and belief from her mother who raised 10 kids. She says the number one quality she looks for when choosing to invest in a business on Shark Tank is how well they can sell themselves.

Listen in on her podcast at http://www.barbaracorcoran.com/podcast/

B. Astounding! Forbes Top 60 self-made richest women 2018 list https://www.forbes.com/self-made-women

We’ve come a l-o-n-g way baby! The combined net worth of the top 60 self-made women is now a record $71 billion, 15% more than in 2017. The minimum net worth to make Forbes’ fourth annual ranking of these top women jumped 23% to a record $320 million. Twenty-four of these women are billionaires, another record, up from 18 last year.

Spend some time on this one…Kylie Jenner, 21, who made the list for the first time, built a $900 million cosmetics fortune in less than three years. How do you build THAT in 3 years? She leveraged her massive Instagram following of 110 million. You’ve got to be impressed with this success regardless who it is! I read every word of this article http://bit.ly/forbes-kyliestory
