Billionaires' First Jobs

Oprah Winfrey

First Job: Grocery store

Oprah got her start working at a corner grocery store next to her father's barber shop in Nashville. By 16 she had landed a job at local radio station WVOL, where she read the news on air. In addition to her television hit The Oprah Winfrey Show and monthly magazine, Oprah has a stake in the Dr. Phil and Rachael Ray shows. These ventures have paid off well; she is worth an estimated $2.4 billion.
