Any aspiring entrepreneur can learn a lot from the top women entrepreneurs in the world. When it comes to female entrepreneurs, there is a big list of entrepreneurs who have created a name for themselves, from achieving CEO status to starting their successful businesses. Oprah Winfrey is the name which comes first in mind when you think of the list of top women entrepreneurs in the world. I have learnt a lot from Oprah Winfrey, following her videos, articles, books, etc!
Oprah personifies authenticity best way. Her persona has a magnetic pull which can enlighten anybody around her. The challenging journey she has gone through in her early life made her tough and what I observe that every phase of her life saw the much better version of herself.
“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”

Here is my lessons list-
- Always be ready to try something new in life- I will strongly recommend every woman entrepreneur to read Oprah Winfrey Biography by Kitty Kelly Beautifully Kitty has narrated the life-journey of Oprah in a detailed way.
As google reads mentions-
“Kitty Kelly has, over the same period of time, fearlessly and relentlessly investigated and written about the world’s most revered icons: she has now given us an unvarnished look at the stories Oprah has told and the life she’s lead. Kelley has talked to Oprah’s closest family members and business associates. She has probed every aspect of Oprah Winfrey’s life, and it is as if she has written the most extraordinary segment of The Oprah Winfrey Show ever filmed – one in which Oprah herself is fully revealed.”
In this book, Kitty has shared how much Oprah was always ready to move on with something new whenever she felt stuck. After reading this book I made it my life mantra always be open to trying out new things in my entrepreneurial journey!
- Always be authentic and mindful about your intention- Authenticity is all about mindful presence and living in the present moment with confidence and staying true to yourself. As an authentic person, Oprah puts the people around her at ease, like a comforting, old friend who welcomes us in and makes us feel at home. If one of the top women entrepreneurs in the world can be mindful about her presence then we don’t’ have any excuse to make!
- Never Ever Give Up Oprah Winfrey has never let challenges stop achieving her dreams. Even when she was young and was thinking of suicide, she found a way to continue, and this must have only possible by tapping deep into her core of determination and resilience. Even when she had to face issues with her weight problems in thin obsessed society, she never ever lose her focus on her goals.
My heartfelt congratulations and thanks to Oprah Winfrey for guiding so many women entrepreneurs by setting an example of her life. Achieving extraordinary success from a very humble start is inspirational to all wannabe women entrepreneurs across the globe.
