Whitney Wolfe never initially enjoyed the label of ‘feminist’. However, after quitting her job at Tinder, an online dating site which she co-founded and later sued for sexual harassment, Wolfe realized that she was exactly what that label described; a woman supporting women’s position in society. She had to create a platform where both genders- male and female- could both present their interests and find a potential mate on the site.
This idea eventually became a reality when she founded Bumble, a dating site which accomplished exactly what she had in mind. But here’s the twist which sets it apart from most dating sites- only women can begin conversations with a potential mate they’re interested in. This instantly reduced the amount of explicit photos sent to women that creepy men found attractive because, well, men couldn’t start conversations at all. Although this idea is extremely controversial, with opposing sides bringing up points such as the app not promoting equality, the app being just a biased dating website, etc., the success Whitney Wolfe has had outweighs it all, with the company now being worth about one billion.
Whitney Wolfe attended college at Southern Methodist University where she majored in international studies. Her entrepreneurial endeavors began at her college where she started selling bags. When asked at SXSW about her ventures at Tinder and all the events following, she had this to say: “I don’t believe revenge is part of my agenda. I’m a firm believer that just like hate spreads hate, love and kindness spread love and kindness. We’re doing our own thing.”
The love story between Whitney Wolfe and her husband, Michael Herd, even had Whitney Wolfe taking the lead with her teaching him how to ski during one of the first acquaintances they had. This led to their wedding in Positano, which took place in September 2017. It ironically was not a virtual encounter, but still had the woman initiating the relationship- ideal for her.
Bumble doesn’t just stop at potential soulmates, though. The company has released Bumble BFF and Bumble Bizz, one as a way to potentially meet a best friend (BFF) and the other to meet a potential business partner (Bizz). On top of this, the Bumble has even pledged to support the #MeToo movement by banning gun photos on the site, and other related types of actions to help with the movement’s idea.
Fashion designer and makeup extraordinaireDoe Deere has transformed the cosmetics industry in a variety of ways. This extraordinary woman has introduced a vibrant new style that has never been seen before and millions of people have fallen in love with this new style. Lime Crime comes straight from the mind of Deere herself. The entire brand was contrived from her very own personal style. She has always loved dazzling colors as a child, and this love has helped to reshape the cosmetics industry. Though starting her professional career in fashion, Deere noticed that most makeup brands were a bit bland when it came to colors. She personally couldn’t find what she was looking for, so she decided to introduce her own.
Lime Crime has only been around since 2008, but it has surpassed many of the leading cosmetics that has been around for decades. That gives you a first-hand account of how successful this brand truly is. The company didn’t really start generating revenue until a year after its official release. Deere had to buildup the brand in the public’s eye to do so. She started a personal blog just for this occasion where she would display the products and give tutorials on the best way to use them. Of course, this free promotion exploded as more and more people jumped aboard. The original product line presented glitter, primers, blush and brushes. As the line began to gain steam, Deere introduced the infamous Velvetine lipsticks. These lipsticks were simply stunning because they were richly pigmented. The intense hues of the Velvetine Collection was different than any other lipstick product of its day. The Blue Unicorn lipstick was the brand’s first big seller, which is why Doe Deere is known as the “Unicorn Queen.”
So, what does the color range posses? This question is very simple to answer. Lime Crime’s colors are immense, and they come in every shade of the rainbow. There are even blended colors to choose from, which hasn’t been replicated since. The actual colors come in fantastic names such as alien, pansy, scandal, black velvet, utopia, wicked, cement, red velvet, pink velvet, shroom, rave, riot, salem, bleached and more. You will not find another lipstick brand with such diversity than this brand and that’s a guaranteed fact. Doe Deere has found a winning solution, and she has laid the blueprint to cosmetics success.

Julia Jackson developed a passion for the family business at an early age. Julia is the daughter of Jess Jackson, the founder of the illustrious Jackson Family Wines. Jackson Family Wines produces several world renowned wine brands, including Vérité, Cardinale, Mantanzas Creek and Murphy Goode.
Julia is currently the spokesperson for the family’s burgeoning wine business. After growing up picking and sorting grapes at the family vineyard, she attended Scripps College. Jackson obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree and went on to Stanford Graduate School of Business.
Recently, Julia’s mother, Barbara Banke, headed to the United Kingdom to disprove a common misconception about Cabernet wine. For decades Napa has been the go to region for the world’s favorite Cabernet wines. The Jacksons believe that Sonoma produces a better Cabernet than Napa. After tasting Vérité La Joie, 50 of London’s premier fine wine purchasers and sommeliers agreed.
After the wine tasting Julia said “Sonoma has a reputation for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, but we believe it’s the best place for Cabernet.”
Julia hopes to do more than just expand her family’s business, she also wants to empower women. After years of watching her mother succeed in a male dominated industry, Julia wanted to celebrate other women who had done the same. She founded Cambria Seeds of Empowerment, a grant program that awards $100,000 a year to women trailblazers.
“I feel like there aren’t enough role models for little girls and young women to look up to in the media,” Jackson told Breakthru Beverage. “Seeds of Empowerment acknowledges those who have overcome adversity but also celebrates the strength of women as leaders.”

The successful businessman believes that children and women are important for the future, and providing educational and healthcare opportunities for them is imperative. If women and children have a safe environment to live in, their future is brighter.
Malini Saba believes that success is doing what someone loves, and accomplishing everything they need with a smile every passing day. According to her, happiness is the real success, and it only comes when an individual stays true to themselves and also doing what they love most. Money is not the only thing that brings joy.
Saba says her greatest success in life was getting her daughter several years ago. Although she has achieved a lot in her career, her daughter brought everything she needed in life. She was able to understand the reason she had started the foundation and why she had always felt that the world should be better.
The successful businesswoman has one main philosophy: she believes that what has happened in the past cannot never be changed. These things might occur in the personal life or business life of an individual. The most important aspect is reflecting on the past and doing everything to learn from it. At the end of it all, everyone is looking for the path that leads to happiness. It is vital for all people to understand that happiness does not come when a person gets plenty of money or fame. It takes more than that to be happy. If everyone realizes what makes them happy early in life, it is easier to live a fulfilling life. The world will be a better place when everyone is happy. People will also be able to live in harmony in a comfortable environment.
