Each of these women has their own story, and their own way of creating success in their own right. But all five of them share one thing in common: They are each great examples of what female entrepreneurs can achieve when they set their minds to it, regardless of who tells them that they can’t. The following list details five of the most successful female entrepreneurs of all time, and their inspiring stories of becoming the best in their field.

4) Arianna Huffington

In 2013, she was named to the Forbes list of the 100 Most Powerful Women in the World. In 2006, she founded The Huffington Post, a news and blog site that quickly became one of the most widely-read, linked to, and frequently-cited media brands on the Internet. She has been awarded numerous honorary degrees and accolades for her work in media.

5) Sara Blakely

In 2000, at the age of 29, Sara Blakely founded Spanx, a line of body-shaping undergarments for women. With no experience in the fashion industry and only $5,000 in savings, Blakely turned Spanx into a multimillion-dollar business. Today, Spanx is a household name and Blakely is one of the richest self-made women in the world.  Blakely has spoken about how she almost didn’t get started because she lacked financial backing and thought it would be easier to go work for someone else. No one’s going to invest in me. But thanks to her father, who agreed to provide her with low-interest loans until she got on her feet, she was able to start Spanx—and achieve success beyond anything she ever imagined.
