The women that are listed, have paved the way for other women of color, and has given us chances to be seen in a better light. Lets start shall we!
The award winning musician has peeked on 2019 Forbes list as the richest female singer of all time. She has a net worth of $600 million dollars and is noted to be the wealthiest musician under the age of 40. Since Rihanna signed with Roc a Fella label, she has been topping the charts since her break through hit “Umbrella” in 08′. She has won 9 Grammys since and later became an entrepreneur. Her first product she launched was her fragrance named Reb’l Fleur in 2011. Most recently she dropped her Fenty Beauty cosmetic line that ranges in 40 different shades for us ebony queens. Fenty has generated $570 million dollars in revenue. She also partnered with fashion brand LVMH in 2017 and has a shoe deal with puma named Fenty.
The richest Tennis player in America with the most grand slam wins in U.S history award… goes… to… Serena Williams. Outside of tennis she went on some business adventures of her own. Williams became an ambassador for the Purple Purse Foundation, which is for domestic violence victims. In 09′ she signed her deal with Nike sports, which brings in around $40 million dollars per year. Serena didn’t stop there with endorsements from Puma, Gatorade and more. She is recently married to the co- founder of Reddit, Alexis Ohanian and they conceived their first child in 2017. Her net worth as of today is standing at a great $180 million dollars, and she is definitely the real mvp!
Janice is the founder and CEO of a Act One which is a workforce agency. This black woman business has a revenue of $900 million dollars according to Forbes. She started the business in L.A with only 1,500 dollars and barely enough equipment. Now her business is well known and located in 19 countries. The agency, similar to Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty, has over 2,000 employees. Her family owns plenty of commercial properties and non commercial. She is worth $350 million dollars but the legacy she will leave behind is worth trillions.
