Disgraced Theranos CEO Elizabeth Holmes was scheduled to report to a prison camp on May 30, after being sentenced to ELEVEN years behind bars as a result of overseeing a blood-testing hoax that sabotaged Silicon Valley's credibility.
Elizabeth Holmes is 39 years old and says that she grew up "aspiring to become a technology visionary along the lines of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs."
Instead, she turned into a criminal. I'm not saying Steve Jobs wasn't a criminal, and I'm not saying that he was. I'm just saying he never got caught.
In case you've never heard of Holmes before, here's a quick rundown.
She was the CEO of Theranos, a blood-testing company. She was declared the youngest and wealthiest self-made female billionaire in America for her amazing company.
There was just one problem with it all:
The revolutionary inventions on which Theranos' sky-high valuations were based never existed. They were all lies. Holmes didn't have a single product, despite claims she was going to revolutionize the blood-testing industry.
Now she's paying the price. She made more from her scam than I will make in my entire life. But she also lost more than I have ever lost: her soul and her freedom.
It's important to share the news to spread the truth. Most people won't.
