If you’re an aspiring billionaire (I mean, aren’t we all?), I’m sure you’re obsessing over Forbes’ list of billionaires, studying it meticulously and figuring out how you can make the cut. If you’re a woman, your role models are somewhat limited as there are only about 100 women on the list, out of over 1,200.
But there are some cool findings nonetheless…
One woman managed to crack the top 10: Christy Walton, of what we’ll call the Walmart dynasty. (Fellow Walmart royalty Alice Walton isn’t far behind her at #21.)
Two Indian women made the list: Savitri Jindal in the steel industry and Indu Jain, who’s in media.
There are six 20-somethings on the list, including Yang Huiyan from China, whose fortune comes from real estate.
Oprah’s still on the list (duh), tied at 420 with some other folks worth $2.7 billion. They list “television” as the source, reminding us that she is not, in fact, the queen of the world.
I’m not sure I really learned anything from the list other than find a Walton heir to the Walmart dynasty. Well, that, and the realization that I’ve never ever aspired to be a billionaire. (Shocker, right?)
