Default Ellen, Meg, Sara and a slew of Chinese Billionaires.

Ellen Degeneres, fired after "coming out" on her TV show, she picked up the pieces and made her way to the top.

Meg Whitman, BILLIONAIREfrom eBay success.

Sara Blakely, BILLIONAIRE, of Spanx fame.

Many great examples, and YES, I think there are some good marketing lessons we can learn from all of them.

And of course, OPRAH is a marketing genius.

I put "marketers" in quotes - because we don't always think of them as marketers!

Let's say, Oprah Winfrey... You wouldn't think of her as a "marketer," usually. But any mention of a book when she still had her TV show would instantly propel it to the top of the bestseller charts!

She's not a multi-billionaire for nothing (worth $3 billion now, apparently)...

I think you can learn a lot about marketing from Oprah... And, she staked her own path - and did it a different way from those who came before her...

Just my 2 cents...!

Best wishes,
