Elizabeth Holmes was named to this years’ TIME 100 list of the world’s most influential people Thursday. She’s being compared to visionaries like Bill Gates and Steve Jobs. Just as Gates wanted a computer on every desk, Holmes wants a blood test in every drugstore.

Her company, Theranos, has created what they call a painless, needle-free way to draw blood and test it — for a fraction of Medicare costs. It’s fueled immense anticipation in the health care industry and made Holmes the world’s youngest self-made female billionaire, reports “CBS This Morning” co-host Norah O’Donnell.
