According to the accompanying piece published by Forbes, Hembrow, who is estimated to have a net worth of $38 million, has “always had that entrepreneurial drive.”
“Ever since I was a kid, I've had the ambition to run my own business. “I could never imagine myself working behind anyone else,” she remarked. “It's just not in my nature.”
After the birth of her son Wolf in 2014, she expressed her sentiments as follows: “I had a lot of people in my ear… saying, ‘Oh, your life will be over. Your physical makeup will never be the same again.
“And it just kind of made me want to share it even more so as to prove everyone else wrong,” she said. I'm still going to have an incredible life, I'm still going to be successful in the workplace, and I'm still going to be in great shape at the gym. Just keep an eye on me, ” Hembrow continued.
The goal of the mother of three is to continue to motivate and inspire people, and while she does have ambitions to expand both of her businesses – which have a combined following on Instagram of around one million – she sees that as secondary to her mission.
Hembrow is quoted as saying, “You can be a parent, you can be strong and healthy and go to the gym, you can enjoy fashion and care about your appearances and success.”
“There's nothing wrong with wanting everything there is.”
Forbes named Hembrow as one of ten Australian entrepreneurs who are part of a “new wave of entrepreneurs.” Hembrow was one of the inventors.
Makeup artist Rowi Singh, author, media personality, and radio host Lillian Ahenkan – aka FlexMami, former contestant on Married at First Sight Jules Robinson, comedian Christian Hull, and Indigenous model Samantha Harris are just some of the names that have appeared on the digital covers of the magazine.
Robinson told Forbes that she has “always been very entrepreneurial – even from when I was a kid.” After her time on the reality TV show, Robinson created two businesses and a podcast. She also said that she has “always been very entrepreneurial.”
“If there was something I needed, I would figure out how to obtain it. “I'm not frightened of putting in long hours,” she went on to say. “I'm someone who puts a lot of stock in fate and destiny, as well as looking for opportunities in challenging situations.
“I found myself in this position organically, where it was very evident to me that women in Australia did not feel like they were enough. It was very clear to me that women in Australia did not feel like they were enough.
“When I wear shapewear, I feel absolutely fantastic. Having body confidence requires familiarity with one's own physical form, as well as an awareness of those aspects of one's appearance they enjoy developing further. My mission has always been to make other people happy, and recently I've discovered that I can accomplish this on a far larger scale than I ever imagined.
