She’s just another example of someone who has gone from college-dropout to billionaire businesswoman. But, there’s one thing that makes Elizabeth Holmes stand out from the rest. She’s a woman in a man’s business. Even before attending Stanford University, Holmes began her relations with China by selling C compliers to universities in the country. During her two years at Stanford, Holmes obtained a patent and worked on the SARS virus in Singapore. Since dropping out, Holmes has grown her billion-dollar company, Theranos, which focuses on a new technology allowing blood testing with just one drop of blood.
The reason I love Holmes is because of her business strategy. She didn’t jump immediately into the spotlight and tell the world about her new idea. She kept it all to herself. Now, with a foolproof business plan, Holmes is starting to make waves in the media and her company is changing the world. It seems like almost everyone these days is jumping at the chance to tell everyone about a new idea or product. Holmes took the road less traveled and it has definitely paid off.
