Where Did The World's Richest Self-Made Female Billionaire Grow Up? 

By James Mills, Associate Partner & Mentorship Coach, Lighthouse International

Imagine being born in an impoverished Chinese village, losing your mother at the age of 5, as well as having your father lose his finger and most of his eyesight in an industrial accident. What would be the likelihood of you being able to succeed in life?

It may surprise you that this is a basic description of the impoverished circumstances that the world's richest self-made female billionaire; Zhou Qunfei, grew up in. To help her family she also raised pigs and ducks before leaving school at 16 to go into factory work, with 16-18 hour shifts for $1 per day. According to Forbes, she is now worth $6.5 billion. Without a formal education, family connections and immediate access to business opportunities - you may wonder how this is even possible?
