Still need some convincing that leaning in works? The latest news from the infamous Sheryl Sandberg should do just that. After a particularly fruitful day on the stock market, the Facebook COO's fortune surpassed $1 billion. Sandberg owns over 12 million shares in the company and share prices closed at $58.51. We won't make you do the math, but let's just say the result is a whole lot of extra pocket money.
These developments make her one of the youngest female billionaires in the word at 44 years young. It's no secret that the 10-digit-makers is something of an old boys' club, so it's completely refreshing to see some of our lady brethren break the mold. And, we can't think of anyone more hardworking than Sheryl Sandberg. One thing's for sure now: We'll be giving our copy of Lean In another thorough read. (Bloomberg)
