Who is Oprah Winfrey?

Oprah Winfrey is considered one of the most famous female entrepreneurs of the 20th century. Although she had a very rough upbringing, she managed to have one of the most popular daytime talk shows.

After she retired from her talk show she could have sat back and enjoyed the fruits of her success. Instead, the entrepreneurial fire within her wouldn't quit.

She started her own TV network where she focuses on inspiring shows to help people unlock their true potential.

Oprah believes it's not the amount of money that defines success. Rather, it's the legacy you leave.

Watch this short video below where she gives sage advice about what it means to leave a legacy.
