One thing about being successful in business is that there is a risk factor that comes with it. As a matter of fact, the largest part of being successful is being known. People have to know about a certain company before they can do business with it. Therefore, being successful means that one has to put herself out there. This is exactly what Whitney Wolfe has done.

It has gotten to the point where the FBI has intervened. One of the reasons that Whitney and her brand was targeted was that she was a feminist. Another reason is that she has become one of the more famous feminists. This has caused more people to pay attention to her. Fortunately, the neo-Nazi website has been taken down.
