Forbes released its annual list of the country’s richest self-made women, and three Wisconsinites made the list–including one who topped it for the sixth year in a row.
Every year, Forbes updates its list of America’s 100 richest self-made women who are cumulatively worth more than $124 billion.
The list includes a mix of entrepreneurs, entertainers, and executives, including 42-year-old Kim Kardasian at number 21 with a $2.1 billion dollar net worth. Her younger sister, 25-year-old Kylie Jenner also made the list at number 38, with a net worth of $680 million. And 33-year-old Taylor Swift came in at number 34 with a net worth of $740 million.
Here are the three Wisconsin women who made this year’s list:
#1 Diane Hendricks
Hendricks, from Beloit, is 76 years old with a net worth of $15 billion. She owns ABC Supply, the largest wholesale distributor of roofing materials in the US.
#3 Judy Faulkner
