Ladies of Atlanta let us all stand and give Sara Blakely a huge hand for making it to the Billionariess club! What an inspiration. Sara came up with the idea of Spanx out of need for a panty hose, yes I said panty hose, with out panty lines! She was 27 years old and took just 5k of her own money and started her empire. Another 3k later and sister was trademarked. In her words, she had no background in business nor did she know how to run one. She sold fax machines for crying out loud. Her logo, which she designed, was done from a friend’s computer. She had barely gotten into Neiman’s when Oprah came calling. Twelve years later , I would say she has made it! What can you accomplish in the next 12 years? We are a city of amazingly talented women. If you have an idea, go for it, you just might end up on the cover of Forbes one day. Lord knows I am trying!!!
