Maria RiosBlue Collar Millionaire
Maria migrated to the United States from El Salvador when she was 13 years old with nothing but her family and a dream. While working at a waste management company after college, she wore all the hats and quickly learned the ins and outs of the business. It dawned on Maria that she could start her own waste management business and be the leader instead of just an employee. Not many people agreed with Maria's decision to go out on her own, but two loans and 12 months later, Maria was listed number seven on Forbes "Most Powerful Women" list. Like most women, Maria loves shoes and jewelry. But unlike most other women, she can afford the best. Maria has a closet FULL of the top brands like Louis Vuitton, Christian Louboutins and Manolo Blahniks.
