Sara Blakely, Founder of Spanx | Frank Buckley Interviews

Frank Buckley Interviews

Sara Blakely is the founder and owner of Spanx–a company that has disrupted the undergarment business with a product that Sara invented in her apartment after cutting the feet out of a pair of pantyhose. The company name makes people laugh–say “Spanx” out loud without smiling–I’ll bet you can’t. But it’s been Sara who’s been laughing all the way to the bank since she launched her slimming undergarment and her company in 2000. In October of 2021, Sara sold her majority share to Blackstone, making her net worth more than a billion dollars.
