Heidi Klum Sydney, April 28 (ANI): Jennifer Hawkins, who was earning 70 dollars a match as a cheerleader seven years ago and has now transformed her body into a brand worth 5 million dollars a year, has revealed the inspiration behind being a business women.

At 27, the former Miss Universe is Australia’s highest-earning model (just pipping Miranda Kerr), although these days she might prefer to call herself an ambassador or businesswoman, even a property developer, rather than a model.

Hawkins is No 25 on BRW magazine’s Entertainers Rich List 2010, with earnings of 5 million dollars, up from 3.3 million dollars the previous year.

This income comes from shares in Myer - the company she fronts - lucrative endorsements and television contracts, her own line of swimsuits and high heels and a bulging property portfolio.

Hawkins is slowly building her brand to rival that of Elle Macpherson, a model she admires, although she cites German supermodel Heidi Klum, a woman with four children and business interests ranging from maternity wear to jewellery design, as her main inspiration.

“I love her business mind,” the Sydney Morning Herald quoted her as saying.

“I love how she does lots of different things. And I like Jennifer Lopez - she’s someone I really admire because she’s family-oriented but then she’s got her business as well,” she added. (ANI)
