Women are not exactly known for taking risk, but I love to see women overcome all obstacles real or imagined, I love to read about successful women.
This are women, which success stories are inspiring. Women who weren’t scared to take risk! Women who were not afraid of failing! Women who are achievers! Self made women! Women who are Kings in the world of entertainment entrepreneurship! Self motivated, Results Oriented Achievers.

Betty Irabor: The editor in chief and chief executive officer of Genevieve magazine, says, the trick to success is “to do it afraid” she started genevieve magazine without thinking too much about it. She just dived in the deep end and started going without knowing how to swim, in her words: ” I thought I was going to drown and I thought to myself, I had better start learning how to swim from the deep end”.Now, she is one great swimmer. She is Indeed a risk taker.
