Venus Williams isn’t lacking for trophies.
She’s won 71 WTA Tour titles,
including 23 Grand Slams, and four Olympic gold
medals. She’s still a top player, but now she’s
also focusing on making her sportswear
label, EleVen by Venus, a global brand.
Venus the entrepreneur, like the tennis player,
works hard, recovers from mistakes—and
remains a relentless competitor
