Interview with Oprah Winfrey

Post by 4everlearner on Wed Mar 12, 2008 5:47 pm

As a young child, did you have any idea, any vision, of what you wanted to accomplish

Oprah Winfrey: As a young child, I had a vision, not of what I wanted to accomplish, but I knew that my current circumstances would change.
I was raised on a farm with my grandmother for the first six years of my life -- I knew somehow that my life would be different and it would be better. I never had a clear cut vision of what it was that I would be doing. I remember absolutely physically feeling it at around four years old. I remember standing on the back porch -- it was a screened-in porch -- and my grandmother was boiling clothes because, you know, at that time, we didn't have washing machines, and so people would, you know, physically boil clothes in a great big iron pot. She was boiling clothes and poking them down. And I was watching her from the back porch, and I was four years old and I remember thinking, "My life won't be like this. My life won't be like this, it will be better." And it wasn't from a place of arrogance, it was just a place of knowing that things could be different for me somehow. I don't know what made me think that.

Absolutely an incredible communicator.
She followed her instinct and found success creating her own market segment. :)
She also took a courageous decision choosing Chicago (the third television market in the U.S.) instead of New York and Los Angeles (principal markets).
