Ellen Degeneres is a very successful talkshow host and business woman. The launch of her app titled 'EllenTube' has enabled her to grow her brand as well as reach people globally.
Her philosphy has always to make people laugh, and through her charasmatic, generous and humourous personality, she has been able to connect with people locally as well as internationally as people are able to relate to her.
Ellen has experienced great criticism and set backs in her career. The backlash that occured after she came out was a major subject in the media at that time. However, Ellen did not allow those setbacks to discourage her and her career. Through her setbacks, she has been able to push foward and now she is incredibly successful.
