For the Guys: 5 Top Richest and Single Female Billionaires

So far it's been a record-breaking year for women on the FORBES list of the World Billionaires. Approximately 10% make up the world's billionaires or 172 women (that's up from 2013 where 138 women were billionaires). Still a minority, but an impressive climb.  

There are some single beauties out there that may like the company of a nice companion.  Topping the list is John Walton's (Walmart) widow, Christy Walton.  She's a refreshing mature natural beauty with her flowing blond curls and sparkling eyes.  She's worth a whopping $36.7 billion. Furthermore, she's had that title for four out of the last five years. Through her ownership of First Solar stock she boosted her fortune above the rest of the Walton family members.  First Solar rose nearly 50% in the past year.

Second place is in the hands of France's richest person. Liliane Bettencourt is worth $34.5 billion. The L’Oreal heiress's fortune increased this year thanks to the company’s stock surging. At a stately 91 years old, it's been years since she ran the company...because she doesn't need to :)

Number Three is another Walton family member –Alice Walton, who's fortune is estimated at $34.3 Billion,  The daughter of  retailer Sam and Helen Walton  is Christy’s sister-in-law. Featuring art work from her personal collection, she opened her Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas in 2011.

Spot Number Four belongs to Jaqueline Mars, daughter of Forrest Edward Mars, Sr.  She belongs to one of the richest families in the World - the Mars Family.  In terms of wealth, her family is next to the Walton Family and the Koch Family.  Her business is the Mars Candy Company, candy manufacturers.  She's a top business investor.  Warren Buffet holds an undisclosed amount of shares in her company. Her worth is $20 Billion.

The Fifth Richest Woman in the world is Gina Rinehart from Australia. Her late father, a mining tycoon, was Lang Hancock. When she inherited Hancock Prospecting from her father, she took it to new heights, increasing her net worth to $20 Billion. Gina is also considered one of the most powerful women in the world

.There are other notable ladies that have become billionaires in the past year, however, the top five all inherited their wealth either by marriage or pays to be "Daddy's Little Girl" and learn all you can from your father.  After all, ladies, you too could be taking the family business to new heights!

As for the men that dare to love these women - none of these women are pushovers.  They are resilient and hard workers.  To command their attention, you should be too!
