Sara Blakely is an inspiration to women across the globe, and she heads up a multi-billion dollar empire that grew from the desire to solve a problem, or as some would say to scratch her own itch.

Sara started with $5,000 and did not receive any angel funding or venture capital investment. When she began her journey Sara was selling fax machines and visualized a different direction for her life, and has achieved phenomenal amount of success so far.

Sara defies many of the limiting beliefs that individuals have about being able to start a venture with a relatively small amount of capital and grow it into a substantial amount of revenue and equity.
