Despite recording a significant decline in her net worth in 2022, with a loss of over $100 million, the African-American billionaire’s wealth currently stands at an impressive $2.5 billion, making her the 1,249th richest person in the world.
Oprah Winfrey’s remarkable success can be attributed to her media empire, Harpo Productions, which has co-produced renowned films like “The Color Purple,” “Beloved,” and “Selma.”
Apart from her media ventures, she owns a 25.5-percent stake in the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN), a cable channel established in 2011, and a seven-percent stake in Weight Watchers, a global company valued at $492 million, which offers weight loss and maintenance services.
What sets Winfrey apart from her peers is not just her ability to create memorable moments through conversations but also her astute investment decisions, particularly in the real estate and property markets.
She has made significant gains from her real estate holdings, with her most recent success being the sale of her Montecito estate in California. This transaction resulted in a gross profit of $6.6 million, further bolstering her financial standing.
In addition to her existing ventures, Oprah Winfrey recently diversified her investment portfolio by making a significant investment in Dr. Barbara Sturm’s skincare brand. She expressed her delight with the brand’s products in an interview with OprahDaily.com, leading her to contact Dr. Sturm and invest in her firm personally.
Dr. Barbara Sturm is a renowned German physician known for her groundbreaking work on chronic inflammation and innovative techniques for skincare. Her skincare line, launched in 2014, has gained widespread acclaim for its efficacy and healing properties.
With Winfrey’s endorsement and investment, Sturm’s products are poised to maintain their appeal and reputation in the market.
Winfrey’s diverse range of investments and businesses in the media industry has not only contributed to her impressive net worth but has also established her as a powerful figure and a source of inspiration for people, particularly those from marginalized communities.
Despite the challenges presented by the current economic climate, Oprah Winfrey continues to thrive, demonstrating resilience and shrewd decision-making in both her professional and investment endeavours.
