Meet the 82-Year-Old Who Just Became Japan’s First Self-Made Female Billionaire

Yoshiko Shinohara is the 82-year-old founder of Temp Holdings who recently became Japan’s first self-made female billionaire.

Shinohara’s amazing rise to the top began over forty years ago when she started her temp staffing firm in her one-bedroom apartment. All she had then was her high school degree, some experience in her previous secretarial jobs and the determination to succeed.
