It is hard enough to make your first million, unless you are born to a family already loaded with fortunes.
Many young women out there are related to billionaire parents or grandparents running their business empires and gigantic corporations with annual revenues in the range of hundreds of millions if not more.
Few are members of royal families who will naturally inherit large sum of wealth in addition to the steady stream of income every year to fund their typically luxurious tastes.
Some people say you cannot enjoy all the good things at every point in life, but apparently for the following women, wealth and beauty go hand-in-hand just fine. What they have is, let us admit, the envy of the world.
Although their income is not always tied to daily job of any sort, they are pretty active in various social organizations and business ventures, which can only add to the massive pile of money already in their possession.
10 Holly Branson
As the daughter of Sir Richard Branson, it only makes sense if Holly Branson is an executive at Virgin Group and Virgin United.

Apart from her steady jobs at Virgin Group, Holly Branson also is a doctor, philanthropist, and the author of WEconomy: You Can Find Meaning, Make A Living, and Change the World.
