You hear a lot about the male entrepreneurs of the world – Gates, Dell, Jobs anyone? But how many female entrepreneurs can you name off the top of your head? If you’re like most girls, the number is going to be much smaller than the number of males that come to mind. In some regards this is to be expected. Some of the most successful entrepreneurs in the world have traditionally been male. But that doesn’t mean those women aren’t in the mix, too.

What is an Entrepreneur?

An entrepreneur is someone who works alone – not as an employee of someone else. The entrepreneur often finds new concepts and ideas to help them grow their business without constraints. Entrepreneurs don’t have a paycheck like salaried employees do. They make their own money and incomes can fluctuate wildly. But entrepreneur have unlimited earning potential working for themselves as opposed to a salary cap working for others.

Coco Chanel

One of the most powerful women in the twentieth century, Coco Chanel developed an empire of fashion almost single-handedly. She is responsible for the concept of simplified elegance and the little black dress – a fashion icon that is still very much a part of style today. Coco also branched into many different areas of fashion. Not only did she design stunningly simple and lovely designs, she also had her own perfume and cosmetics. Chanel #5 was the first perfume to be named after its designer and the name was controversial at the time.

Mary Kay Ash

You might have heard of the Mary Kay brand of cosmetics. Mary Kay Ash founded a cosmetics business in a totally unconventional way and inspired an entire generation of women to go into business from home. From her famous pink Cadillacs to her endless praise and advice to women struggling to find ways to earn and support themselves in a male-dominated society, Mary Kay is a female icon. And the cosmetics are nice, too.

Estee Lauder

The youngest of nine children born to immigrants, Estee helped her uncle selling creams and other chemist creations. The more she learned, the more she created in her own right. Estee Lauder earned the opportunity to sell her products through New York’s Saks 5th Avenue in 1948. The rest is history. Her careful creation of facial products and skin care lines are still snatched up by women today in an effort to preserve their natural beauty.

Oprah

We can’t forget the most famous female entrepreneur of all time. Oprah wrote the book on how to create an empire, especially when the odds are stacked against you. Oprah went from a basic news reporter to the richest woman in the world under her own steam. She inspires countless others and her word is enough to place a book or movie on the best seller list. Oprah is a phenomenon in media and she works hard to stay that way by reaching out to her audience on an almost personal level.

Coco Chanel is the greatest of all the female entrepreneurs in my book. She had such an exciting life, look her up on wikipedia.

I'm proud of all these women, and you're right I wouldn't have been able to name them off the top of my head. In fact I thought most of those were just product names, not named after their creator. 0.o

While I think Oprah is a wonderful person I'm tired of hearing people swoon over her thoughts and opinions. Can't anyone think for themselves? Read a book because you want to, not because some famous talk show host says she loved it.

Reccommendations are fine, but to go out of your way to 'read what Oprah reads' seems a little ridiculous.
