The Richest Self-Made Women In America Part 2

Good evening Beautiful Women Supporting Women,

Happy Monday to you all!  I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day.  I spent mine in Maryland with my family, just enjoying everyone’s company.  This was another week of blessings and gratitude.

Two weeks ago, I introduced you to a list of go-getters who are either millionaires/billionaires because of a dream that came to fruition with hard work, collaborations with spouses and dedication to their crafts.

This week, we will add a few more ladies to the list.

Huda Kattan (age 35) is worth 610 million. Like makeup?  Huda’s claim to fame is Huda Beauty, which was started with her two sisters when she grew tired of not finding false eyelashes.  Today, Huda sells more than 140 products, which brings in at least 250 million dollars a year in revenue.

Jayshree Ullal (age 58) – is worth 1.4 billion dollars and her claim to fame is being the President of Arista Networks, a computer networking firm that brought in 2.2 billion dollars in 2018. Ullal owns about 5% of  Arista’s stock, which is for her children, nieces and nephew.

Sheila Johnson (age 70) –  is worth 820 million.  Sheila’s claim to fame is she is the co- founder of Black Entertainment Network, which was founded in 1979 with her ex-husband, Robert.  In 2001, Viacom purchased the network for 2.9 billion.  Once she sold off her shares, Sheila invested in Virginia and Florida hotels, real estate, planes and horses. Another claim to fame for Sheila Johnson is she produced the movie, The Butler.

Remember: Your passion becomes your motivation.  Your motivation becomes your brand.  Your brand becomes your success!  No matter how big or small, it’s never too late to put actions to your dreams!

Next week:  We will start a series that will discuss dealing with the purchase of a home, such as saving for a home, 1st time home buyer programs, down payments and ratios for mortgage payments, Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) and how paying per month can reduce PMI sooner – topic requested by Lisa DeSheers – thank you for your suggestion.

As always, thank you for stopping by.

Have a blessed and amazing week!


Changing the lives in our community….one family at a time
