Jay Z isn’t the only one making waves in Forbes. Serena Williams graces the cover as she makes history becoming the first athlete ever to make Forbes’ list of World’s Richest Self-Made Women. She may have just lost the French Open but Serena has 24 Grand Slam Titles under her belt and is sitting on an estimated $225 million fortune. In addition to her Nike sponsorship, Williams has invested in over 34 start up companies. She told Forbes, “I learned you can’t overspend, but I also learned that I love seed investing,” she told Forbes.“It’s fun to get in there. I don’t gamble. I don’t jump off buildings…I’m the most non-taking-a-chance kind of a person, but I felt like seed was where we wanted to be.”
Rihanna also made an outstanding Forbes list. She has surpassed Madonna ($570 million), Céline Dion ($450 million) and Beyoncé ($400 million), as the wealthiest woman musician in the world. As much as we want new music, Rihanna has secured a $600 million fortune by branching out into fashion and beauty industries.
