Oprah Winfrey is not the kind of person to write this series; His ability to turn bad times into good and failure into success is truly amazing.
In the 50's (1954), she was born in the womb of one of America's poorest teenage mothers, sexually abused from the age of 9, running away from home at 13, having children at 14 and losing a child soon after birth ... what a horrible life! But the next story is completely different, you will be surprised to hear.
Oprah began living with her father in Tennessee, and her life took a turn for the worse. He continued to do very well in academic education, as well as gaining outstanding skills in both speech and debate. In addition to a part-time job reading news on local radio, Oprah also won a full-time scholarship to Tennessee State University.
Oprah's natural instincts work in the media, and she majors in communication at the university. After finishing his studies, he got a very good job in the then famous TV show. He was hired as a co-host on an evening news show.
The anchor of that news program was then the famous journalist Jerry Turner. White-aged-famous Jerry Turner on the one hand, and black-young-rising Oprah Winfrey on the other. Good marketing element; Bus-billboard-promo cut condition. Huge hype was created, who is this Oprah?
But the problem is, Oprah wasn't ready for so much hype, and Jerry Turner was against the co-host from the start. The result is hatena - horse egg. People saw it and said, ‘Oh, this afternoon!’ Falling from heaven. Anchor was removed from his job for copywriting and street reporting. Oprah could not do well here either. He was very slow in copywriting, and personally involved himself in reporting which no one was taking well. These places in the story have always been very dear to me. How do people fight in adversity and win?
What most people will do in this place, everyone will say, adjust a little! But Oprah didn't do that, she identified her strengths, saw, she likes TV but doesn't like news. He can't help but listen to people's stories. Oprah started with Richard Sher's talk show (not a news show) People are Talking which went well on local TV for over 5 years and Oprah started to be today's Oprah.
Many of us know the next story. Oprah started The Oprah Winfrey Show, a show that changed the history of television. In its 25-year history, this TV show has not only been loved by people all over the world, it has made Oprah one of the most influential and wealthy people in history.
Among the many other qualities that set him apart from others is his empathy, his ability to understand and capture other people's feelings.
