Sara Blakely reaches billionaire status without a single cup of coffee
If you ever think you can’t function without coffee, here’s a self-made billionaire who never had coffee in her life.
In a report in CNBC, Sara Blakely, who has a net worth of US$1 billion, revealed how she built her shapewear business Spanx without a single coffee boost.
“Instead, she has a unique and slightly awful-sounding smoothie, chock-full of healthy ingredients to start her day. Indeed, her husband, she says, thinks it’s disgusting,” the report said.
Blakely said the smoothie would include frozen wild blueberries, a few dark cherries, kale, dates, cinnamon, spinach, cilantro, fresh mint, lemon, water, ice, chia, and walnuts.
“It’s thick and I eat it like ice cream, so it makes me feel like I’m having dessert,” Blakely said in an interview with New York Magazine’s The Cut.
She would then savour on green tea with honey sourced from a local honey beekeeper in Georgia and homemade cashew milk.
