Adopt the mindset of the world's youngest self-made female billionaire!

November 18th, 2020

In 2012, Spanx founder Sara Blakely, was crowned Forbes youngest self-made female billionaire. Today, at 48, she is worth $1.1 billion, and very long gone are the testing 12-hour days she endured, managing supply disasters and selling door-to-door. Blakely refused to drown in early failures and grew immune to the word “no.” She credits resilience as key to her international success.

This week we draw inspiration from Sara’s story and bring you her top 5 quotes about conquering setbacks in both business and life:

"Failures are life's way of nudging you and letting you know you are off course. Trying new things and not being afraid to fail along the way are more important than what you learn in school."

“To me, failure means not trying.”

“There is hidden blessing in the most traumatic things we go through in our lives.”

“When something I cannot control happens, I ask myself, where is the hidden gift? Where is the positive in this?”

“It’s important to be willing to make mistakes. The worst thing that can happen is you become memorable.”
