Oprah Winfrey was designated the richest African American of the 20th century. But she sure didn’t start out that way.
Born in Mississippi to a teenage mother, she couldn’t even be called middle class. In fact, they were dirt poor. But that didn’t stop her, even as a child. At 3 Oprah could read and write, and everyone could tell there was something very special about her.
She was raised with a sense of religion and required to attend church every Sunday; and that’s where Oprah learned the skills she uses today. At church she would recite poems and Bible verses. The congregation nicknamed her “the little speaker”. Now, as they say, the rest is history.
Learning to speak in public, without fear, was “her door that opened wide”, and she has used that skill to fame and riches. Her net worth now is north of $3 billion!
Learn to speak in public and doors will open wide for you too!
