So, is Oprah Winfrey still in it for the money? I certainly hope she is, and I hope I get my chance to sell a few things in her store. But after all the scandals and defeats she has suffered, I think she is in it only for the money.
I don’t think there is a single person out there who has not heard of her. She was once called the first woman’s editor. She won a lot of awards when she was a young woman. The problem is, Oprah has won everything she has ever wanted except happiness.
Has Oprah Winfrey become like other women who get rich quick and end up miserable? Or, have they come up with a formula for success that works every time? I think Oprah Winfrey had it made back in the good old days. All she had to do was write a great book and a great show. Nowadays, you have to get a degree and no matter how much schooling Oprah had, it didn’t do her any good.
Her talk show ran in syndication, and now she makes almost as much as I do in a month, a half a million dollars a year. But that is only a little of what she makes in a year.
In a world where the sales of all women’s magazines are down; where the only thing more in fashion than money is clothing; and where Oprah has to stand on her own two feet to make a living, she can be very surprised at the income she receives each month. What happened to her fairy tale life when she was a kid and she had money coming her way from her parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents?
When Oprah Winfrey was growing up in a middle class family and being teaching all kinds of money making information, she did not earn any money. She wasn’t even working.
And she wasn’t happy, because she always felt that she was not like other girls and women. She felt she was different and had a right to the same things everyone else did. She always thought she should have a better life than other girls. She went from being able to keep things with her mom to not being able to even give the wedding dress her mother had bought her for her big day.
In the end, Oprah Winfrey is still looking for her place in the world, still feeling the sting of rejection, still experiencing loneliness, and still wishing that the world would give her what she wants and not what she needs. But, we all know that she is at the mercy of people who want to believe that people can still become rich without working hard.
