1Whitney Wolfe Herd – from Bamboo Bags to Bumble

How She Did It: She once sold bamboo tote bags while still in college, but went on to become the co-founder of Tinder. After an acrimonious departure, which resulted in Wolfe Herd filing a sexual harrasment lawsuit, she became the founder and CEO of the dating app Bumble. Her stake in the company is valued at over $1.5 billion.

Success quote: “Have a dream, chase it down, jump over every single hurdle, and run through fire and ice to get there.”
