Sarah Blakely Foundation
You may be familiar with Sarah Blakely, maybe not... but if you have ever entered the hosiery department of a major store or read a fashion magazine, you've seen her product Spanx. She started her company with $5000, took a vacation from her job and drove around to hosiery mills, looking for a way to get her creation made. Once she had a product in hand she was a one-woman publicity force and landed major contracts in top stores. She is a self-made success and now she has created the Sarah Blakely Foundation, in order to help other women achieve success. Check out the website and spread the word.
