Can somebody prove to me that any country has as much opportunity to be a successful entrepreneur as it is in the US? Yes, US is easy but I want to go Big too in my good country, make a difference here, without leaving unlike most of the people here. Thank you.

Another woman bent on putting women above men. Notice she didn't mention one thing about helping young men become successful? Yet, she wants to bring balance between women and men. What else do women need to be equal? They already get everything and can't be touched physically. What the hell else do they need? Stop making women the victim in everything. The reason most women aren't "running businesses" isn't because someone or men are holding them back. Most women could careless about business, they care about raising their kids and helping their family become successful.

I love the spanx, the only thing is that it tends to roll up, maybe need larger sizes for more meaty girls.

I don't hated her and I don't feel like she going to give anything away. We are dirt under her feet.

Jackie Harpold why do you believe it's someone else's job to give you things? to take care of you. What she achieved she worked and earned herself she didn't sit and hoped that some rich person would give to her. that's the problem most poor people have.

but but women are being oppressed.. the wage gap!!!!
The wage gap exists only because many women go into crap like gender studies, become nothing, contribute nothing to the society and then ask to be paid as much as a male engineer at NASA.

+666j1 No sane business would miss the change on profiting 23 more cents by just hiring women, the wage gap does not exit.
