Florida Residents Make Forbes List of Richest Self-Made Women

Wow we have some wealthy women in Florida. I mean, they can live anywhere, of course they would live here!

Here’s some of the Floridians on the Forbes list:

Safra Catz (no. 20)

Safra Catz, who has served as the CEO of the software company Oracle since September 2014, has a net worth of $1.9 billion. The Fort Lauderdale resident was born in Israel and worked on Wall Street before eventually joining the software firm in 1999. Forbes reports that Catz is credited for leading the company’s “aggressive acquisition strategy.”

Serena Williams (no. 97)

Tennis legend Serena Williams is the only professional athlete to crack Forbes’ top 100. Considered one of the greatest tennis players of all time, Williams won 23 Grand Slam titles during her storied career. The 42-year-old, who has a net worth of $340 million, earned nearly $95 million in prize money alone, according to Forbes. She founded Serena Ventures, a venture-capital firm, in 2017 and cofounded the lifestyle and recovery brand Will Perform five years later. Williams recently launched her production company, Nine Two Six Productions, and a makeup brand, WYN Beauty. She and her sister Venus purchased a stake in the Miami Dolphins in 2009.

Judy Sheindlin (no. 58)

Judy Sheindlin, better known as Judge Judy, thanks to her popular daytime courtroom reality show, is a Naples resident with a net worth of $560 million. The 81-year-old made $47 million a year before taxes from 2012 to 2020, according to Forbes. She became the highest-paid TV host in 2018, after she sold the rights to her episode library to CBS for $100 million. Judge Judy officially went off the air in 2020 after nearly 30 years. She now hosts Judy Justice on Amazon Freevee.

Lucy Guo (no. 64)

Lucy Guo cofounded the artificial-intelligence company Scale AI in 2016, then left the company two years later and founded Passes, a social platform for creators to share insights, which she now runs. The 29-year-old has a net worth of $500 million. Though she lists Miami as her primary residence, her Instagram indicates that she also spends time in Los Angeles. As New Times has previously noted, she also throws one hell of a rager.



If you know me even just a little bit, you know I follow the music…sing it, dance to it and play it on the radio. I hope the music we play makes your workday, or beach day, go by easy breezy.
