Is Oprah a self-made billionaire?

Oprah Winfrey, arguably the most renowned self-made woman in the world, grew her talk show into an internationally successful media and commercial empire. Growing up in squalor with her unmarried adolescent mother, the powerful dynamo is now worth $2.6 billion—a great inspiration.

Oprah was born on January 29, 1954 in Mississippi. She showed an interest in books at a very early age and wrote her first book when she was 11 years old. It was called "Opinions Are Like Apples" and it contained stories that she had written about topics such as love and loss.

After high school, Oprah moved to Chicago where she worked as a hairdresser to make ends meet. It was here that she developed her talent for conversation which earned her some extra cash. She later took this skill and used it as a means to earn more money by becoming one of the first people to be paid to talk on television.

The original name of Winfrey's talk show was The Oprah Winfrey Show but it wasn't until 1986 that it really got going when it was renamed after its famous host. By 1993, the show had become America's highest-rated television program for women, ahead of programs by former First Ladies.

In 2004, Harpo Productions, the company that produces the show, sold over $100 million worth of merchandise in just two days.
