CNN: Erin Burnett OutFront Interview
One on One with Maria Sharapova - Grand Slam champion finding
success in business world
We all know 25-year-old Russian tennis ace and London 2012 silver
medalist Maria Sharapova is a fierce competitor on the court, but
she's much more than a Grand Slam champion - she's a brand.
People around the world know her face from Cole Haan or Tag Heuer
or Canon PowerShot commercials. With all her endorsements and
advertising deals, she's the highest paid female athlete in the
world. But today, for the first time, she launched her OWN
business, a candy line called Sugarpova.
Erin met up with Sharapova at the New York City location of Henri
Bendel, one of the stores that will be selling her candy. Right
away, she was very clear that finding success in business is just
as important as finding it on the tennis court.
