Definitely. Perhaps this bit could be copied onto the time-saving thread?:

"several times a day she drinks a pulverized concoction of cucumber, parsley, kale, spinach, romaine lettuce, and celery."

"launched her company after "thinking about what is the greatest change I could make in the world.""

"Holmes spends every waking hour in her office and doesn't even own a TV at home."

"no longer devotes time to novels or friends, doesn't date, doesn't own a television, and hasn't taken a vacation in 10 years"

"She abstains from caffeine, limits the amount of time she sleeps, and works seven days a week"


Amazing indeed. While I am grateful that there are people like this in the world dedicating the entirety of their lives to the progress of mankind and making us all better off, I could never be that devoted to my work.  The world needs more of these types of people, they are few and far between.

I have changed the title of this thread… Someone has made me notice the word “girl” is not how I want to refer to a person who is 30 and a self-made billionaire…!! Of course, mine has been only a second-language mistake… And I couldn’t hold Miss Homes in higher respect than I already do! ;)

Cheers,

Gio

+1  when I first clicked on it I expected it to be a story about a child or a teenager, but don't worry about it, I couldn't post in Italian.

I wouldn't worry about it gio. I think most people will attribute it to the language thing and not any disrespect towards Ms. Holmes.

It's amazing how little there is about her that's out there; secretive is right. She's incredibly impressive; reminds me of Elon Musk in a way, focusing on the biggest problems she thinks she can solve. Pretty cool.
