Fortune's editors have chosen the 2011 Fortune Most Powerful Women Entrepreneurs. From a pool of 131 applicants, we've selected (not easily) 10 extraordinary innovators, game-changers and groundbreakers whose startups generated $1 million to $25 million in annual revenue last year--but appear poised to become large and global businesses.
That is, these women could be on the Fortune Most Powerful Women in Business list someday. (This year's U.S. and international rankings will MOREPatricia Sellers - Sep 13, 2011 1:28 PM ET
What is the No. 1 trait that has led to your success?
Warren Buffett's is focus—according to Alice Schroeder, author of the Buffett bio Snowball, who spoke, as I did, at a corporate event at the U.S. Open last week.
Getting ready to go on stage, I thought, what's my key trait? Curiosity, I guess. It keeps a journalist alive and open to ideas.
So I was innately curious to interview Billie Jean MOREPatricia Sellers - Sep 6, 2011 11:04 AM ET

Buffett will appear tonight on the one hour NBC season finale of The Office at 9/8c.
Tonight on the season finale of The Office, a galaxy of stars will be jostling to replace the hapless Michael Scott as boss of Dunder Mifflin's Scranton branch. You'll see Jim Carrey, Ray Romano, Ricky Gervais, and...Warren Buffett.
It's a quick cameo for the famous investor, but Buffett had a juicier role last month when he starred MOREPatricia Sellers - May 19, 2011 2:42 PM ET
Hollywood, Wall Street and New York media converged last night at the premiere of Too Big to Fail, the movie.
Michael Douglas, Brian Williams, and Regis Philbin met Warren Buffett, uber-analyst Meredith Whitney, and CNBC's Becky Quick at the Museum of Modern Art, where HBO's screening took place, and at a swishy after-party at Manhattan's Four Seasons restaurant.
Hank Paulson is indisputably the hero of the film based on Andrew Ross Sorkin's MOREPatricia Sellers - May 17, 2011 11:38 AM ET
The debate rages on about women and money. After I published "Are women afraid of money?"--which stirred up this week's far-flung opinionated commentary--Susan Sobbott, president of American Express OPEN, emailed me her thoughts. Her note was so insightful that I asked her if I could run it as a Guest Post.
Sobbott knows entrepreneurs. At American Express (AXP) since 1990, she has headed OPEN, the company's small-business card unit for seven MOREPatricia Sellers - Apr 21, 2011 10:49 AM ET

How critical to success is a healthy corporate culture?
As my Postcard last Thursday noted, Ginny Rometty, one of the top execs at IBM (IBM), says that culture is emerging to be the No. 1 corporate asset.
Jeffrey Katzenberg, DreamWorks Animation's (DWA) chief, seems to agree--as yesterday's Postcard details.
Another guy who deems a thriving culture to be a vital ingredient of a successful company: Warren Buffett. I spent much MOREPatricia Sellers - Mar 17, 2011 11:14 AM ET

Even though Warren Buffett (BRKA) has received plenty of rewards in his 80 years, there was something special about yesterday. He traveled to the White House to accept the 2010 Presidential Medal of Freedom, America's highest civilian honor.
In the East Room ceremony, along with President Obama and Buffett's fellow honorees--including former President George H. W. Bush, poet Maya Angelou, baseball legend Stan Musial, and basketball icon Bill Russell--Buffett MOREPatricia Sellers - Feb 16, 2011 3:48 PM ET

It's hard to believe Warren Buffett. A month ago, the guy turned 80 years old. Last week he was in China with his billionaire pals Bill Gates and Charlie Munger. Last Thursday, he flew home to Omaha, slept a little -- even though his internal time clock never went out of whack, he says. Since Monday, he's been with us in Washington at the Fortune Most Powerful MOREScott Olster, editor - Oct 6, 2010 3:21 PM ET

I've been less than prolific on Postcards lately. Pardon the layoff--it's temporary. And it's just because I've been running around working on what is going to be, I think, Fortune's best Most Powerful Women issue yet.
The issue, our 13th since we began the act in the magazine in 1998, will hit newsstands on Monday, October 4. That's also the day we begin the Fortune Most Powerful Women Summit, MOREPatricia Sellers - Sep 17, 2010 6:01 AM ET
