Serena Williams Makes History as First Athlete to Make Forbes Self-Made List
Forbes and Serena announced the news via social media. Here's what Serena had to say on making history: "Be the brand. Starting @Serena and @Serena.Ventures are just a few steps. Honored to be the first athlete on @Forbes #SelfMadeWomen list."
“I want to be a part of it,” she told Forbes. “I want to be in the infrastructure. I want to be the brand, instead of just being the face.” Serena has been "really leaning" on her husband, Alexis Ohanian, for support and mentorship, a fitting mentor since he's the co-founder of Reddit. Forbes predicts Ohanian is worth $70 million.
So proud of my girl! Congrats, Serena! This is what it's all about!
