What will you do if you are a woman with a worth of $1 billion? That’s how much is the estimated net worth of Hewlett-Packard chief executive Meg Whitman according to Wealth-X. In fact, it’s more than that. The estimated net worth is actually $1.3 billion fortune.
Second on the list is Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg, whose net worth totals US$1.22 billion. From the information released by Wealth-X, her net worth was generated because she’s selling off her Facebook shares.

What would you do if you have a billion dollar? Personally, if you ask me the same question, I won’t be able to answer you right away. Unlike when you have, for example, $1 million. It’s easier to divide where to put or spend the smaller $1 million than $1 billion. Do you agree?
