Самоломанные миллиардеры - женщины.

   Две такие разные биографии женщин.
   Англичанка и итальянка.
Из бедных семей, поднялись своими силами на Олимп. К вершинами славы, богатства и власти. Кажется очень увлекательным читать биографии таких людей. Для меня большим стимулом в детстве оказалась жизнь Генриха Шлимана.
Ниже можно узнать о симпатичных "слабых" созданиях. Сотворивших свою биографию.
Мне кажется это вдохновляющим.

Joanne (J.K.) Rowling

Citizenship: U.K. Net worth: $1 billion

Once a single mother living on welfare in a cold-water flat in Edinburgh, Scotland, Rowling is now the only billionaire author on our list. The seventh and last installment of her wildly successful Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, was released July 2007 to throngs of rabid fans, who made it the fastest-selling book of all time. Over 11 million copies were sold in the first 24 hours. Feeding the Potter-mania: The film version of the fifth book, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, came out the same month. The popularity of her boy wizard has put the author in the spotlight, with a Rowling documentary airing last year. In November, a New York judge ordered publisher RDR Books to halt publication of a Potter dictionary after Rowling brought a lawsuit against the company.

Giuliana Benetton

Citizenship: Italy Net worth: $2.9 billion

Together with siblings Luciano, Carlo and Gilberto, also billionaires, Giuliana formed Benetton Group in 1965. The $2.5 billion (sales) clothing company sells its United Colors of Benetton, Sisley, Playlife and Killer Loop brands at more than 5,000 stores in 120 countries. She is also a director of Edizione, the family holding company that owns stakes in Atlantia, formerly Autostrade, one of the world's largest toll road companies, and in Autogrill restaurants, which serve nearly 900 million customers each year on highways and in airports in 42 countries. Giuliana started the family's fashion business, knitting sweaters that brother Luciano would then peddle by bicycle. Originally sold under the Tres Jolie label, it was eventually renamed Benetton.
