BRW has published its list of Australia's wealthiest women; since the demise of the print edition of BRW, access to the website is now free of charge and you can find the full list here
The list does not include women with inherited wealth, so for example Gina Rinehart doesn't feature. The BRW says women need to get better at asking for funding for business for more of us to become successful as entrepreneurs
The Australian profiles philanthropist Simon McKeon
"McKeon, who was named Australian of the Year in 2011 for his humanitarian efforts and philanthropy, believes the only way to find real joy and meaning in life is to give to others." Link to the article here
