One of the ways to be successful is to try to emulate those that are successful and try to follow their path. As of 2017, a mere 6.4% of Fortune 500 companies have a female CEO. The good news is that 32 of 500 is the highest number to date. As more women ascend to become CEOs, it is important to examine the pioneers who are paving the way. The team at BusinessStudent.com created the infographic to highlight some of the most successful women across business, Hollywood, tech, sports, politics and more. These women share tales of failure, overcoming rejection and simple techniques that have allowed them to achieve their wildest dreams.
