A new study has revealed that the number of women millionaires in Australia, the US and the UK are growing three times faster than ever before – and it’s partly being fuelled by a rise in female entrepreneurs. Here are my top 5 incredible women picks who’ve set up their own successful businesses and are helping other woman reach their own success. Take inspiration, ladies.

Introducing the 5 female entrepreneurs whose success we’d love to emulate…

1. Marie Forleo

Marie was named by Oprah as a ‘thought leader for the next generation’ and one of Inc’s ‘500 fastest growing companies’ of 2014. Her mission is to help you realize your greatest potential and use your unique talents to change the world. She reaches over 275,000 readers in 193 countries worldwide and leads dynamic training programs that teach individuals to succeed in business and life.

She’s the creator of the award-winning show MarieTV and has been featured in Entrepreneur Magazine, Fast Company, Glamour Magazine, Self Magazine, Forbes.com and The New York Times among others.

Marie has been interviewed by Tony Robbins as one of the world’s leading lifestyle and online marketing experts and mentored young business owners at Richard Branson’s Centre of Entrepreneurship in South Africa. Her bestselling book, Make Every Man Want You: How to Be So Irresistible You’ll Barely Keep from Dating Yourself!is published in 13 languages.

With loving yet wisecracking advice, Marie inspires a global community to take charge of their success and happiness by boosting their business skills, shedding BS excuses and injecting massive amounts of fun into each day.

Please do yourself a favor and become addicted to your weekly shot of MarieTV! Watch one of my favorite episodes…

 

2. Lori Greiner

lori213t-croppedNow regarded as one of the most prolific inventors of retail products, Lori Greiner has created over 450 products, and holds 120 U.S. and international patents. She is a star shark on the hit entrepreneurial business show, Shark Tank on ABC, where she invests in companies and helps turn dreams into a reality.

Lori also has had her own show on QVC-TV, for the past 16 years called “Clever & Unique Creations by Lori Greiner.” Lori says she can tell instantly if a product is a “hero or a zero”, and this is clearly shown through her many thriving investments and a 90% success rate on new items launched. Several of her investments are the highest success stories on Shark Tank to date.

Lori entered the literary world with her first book Invent It, Sell It, Bank It! which is a National Bestseller and is a hands on, step-by-step guide on how to turn an idea into a million dollar reality.

What I love most about Lori is her obvious belief that, if you are lucky enough to be successful, you have a responsibility to give back. It’s evident in everything she does.

 

3. Gabby Bernstein

Gabrielle Bernstein is another go getter on our list who has also been named “a next-generation thought leader” by Oprah Winfrey. She appears regularly as an expert on NBC’s Today Show and has been named “a new role model” by The New York Times. She is the New York Times bestselling author of Miracles Now, and May Cause Miracles. Her two additional titles include of Add More “ing” to Your Life and Spirit Junkie.

Gabrielle is also the founder of HerFuture.com, a social networking site for women to inspire, empower and connect. (It’s pretty awesome – you should check it out!)

Gabrielle has been on an international speaking circuit since 2004. She has presented lectures at Google, TEDxWomen, L’Oreal, Avon/mark. Cosmetics, The Chopra Center, The Omega Institute, among many other notable organizations.

She is a certified Kundalini yoga and meditation teacher. She is also trained in the Emotional Freedom Technique and she’s a student of Transcendental Meditation (as taught by the David Lynch Foundation).

YouTube chose Gabrielle as one of its ‘16 YouTube Next Video Bloggers’. Mashable Mashable included her in its list of ‘11 Must-Follow Twitter Accounts for Inspiration’. And Forbes even called her one of the ‘20 Best-Branded Women’.

Phew….that was a lot of awesomeness to get through! I think you get the point, we love her!

 

4. Dani Johnson

dt.common.streams.StreamServer.cls_Dani’s life flies in the face of fate. Born into a house of crumbling values and gut-wrenching abuse – she climbed into a business suit and made a name for herself.

Only – her story isn’t typical rags-to-riches. Sure, homeless to millionaire” sounds ready made for Hollywood. But if they made a movie as gritty as Dani’s life, you’d be picking sand out of your teeth after leaving the theater. Dani was a desperate woman who hunted her excuses down and killed them. One. By. One.

Becoming a seven-figure sensation in the home business industry was just the beginning of her impact in the world. Her ability to develop fast-acting solutions for crippling problems has earned her guest appearances on a slew of major media outlets, such as The Oprah Winfrey Show, The View, Fox & Friends, Good Morning America, NPR, USA Today, Forbes, TheStreet.com, AOL Finance, Fox Business News and Variety.

Her advice is sought by to more than 50,000 subscribers via The Daily Fix email and The Dani Johnson show is televised daily into more than 24 million homes nationwide.

I love Dani’s practical wisdom and battle-hardened advice she gives her clients and her readers to cut through challenges in their businesses, personal and financial lives.

 

5. Danielle LaPorte

Danielle LaPorte is the creator of The Desire Map: A Guide To Creating Goals With Soul. She is also the bestselling author of, ‘The Fire Starter Sessions‘ and co-creator of Your ‘Big Beautiful Book Plan‘. An inspirational speaker, poet, former think tank exec and business strategist, she writes weekly at DanielleLaPorte.com, where over a million visitors have gone for her straight-up advice — a site that’s been deemed “the best place online for kick-ass spirituality,” and was named one of the “Top 100 Websites for Women” by Forbes.

The Huffington Post even included her Twitter feed in their list “12 of The Wisest Twitter Accounts Worth Following.”

All in all, you can say she know’s her stuff and you need to get to know her! Stat!

Do you follow these ladies? Who do you think we should add to the list?

Twelve years ago, I flew to Turkey to meet with a potential client who had specifically told me not to bother boarding the plane. My boss dropped the trip in my lap just days before I had to show up because he wasn’t able to close the deal himself. Even though the client said he wasn’t going to work with us and I shouldn’t waste my time, I flew to meet him, made a great pitch, created a genuine connection with him—and got him to sign an agreement to work with my company.
