Do you have to write hit songs or star in huge movies to be the one of the richest women in America? Nope. You can also live in Beloit, Wisconsin. 

Diane's fortune isn't just because she lives in Beloit, but on a list that includes some massive celebs like Kim Kardashian, Rihanna and Taylor Swift, it's surprising that in a town of under 37,000 people, one of them is America's Richest Self Made Woman. 

Now, if you've been living in the Stateline for awhile, this comes at no surprise. Because you probably know who Diane Hendricks is. You've hired one of her companies and you've seen a Beloit Sky Carp game at the ABC Supply Stadium.

You may also have been following along with this Forbes list for the past few years. It's not like she's suddenly number 1 this year. She's been number 1 for a while.

Because when you have 15 billion dollars, being number one is easy.
