Supermodel to scientist, women's top salaries
When I originally started this hub it was to exploit the fact that you have to be a supermodel to succeed in making the big money. As it turns out there are quite a few successful women out there who are super not only in beauty but brains and back account. Fortune 500 and Forbes.com provides some listing of the wealthiest women
Supermodels are one of the highest paid jobs around. Comparable to an athlete they get millions of dollars for little hours of work. Oh no I am not putting them down I know it is constant work to keep your body in shape. Maybe it is society to blame for what we consider important. Let me explain. I decided to compare some salaries to see where we stand.
