Kim Kardashian learned to use her massive following to make multiple successful companies.

Behind the paparazzi, fans, and glamor at the heart of Kim Kardashian is a successful entrepreneur. 

Kim Kardashian started her career with a reality TV show about her family, so most continue to see her through the lens of a child tv star. What most people don’t see is that as time went on, she learned to use her massive following to make multiple successful companies. After all this fortune, Kardashian is still not gaining due respect. 

Since teenhood, Kardashian knew she wanted to be a star. Kardashian was first brought into light for being Paris Hilton’s assistant, where she would be seen partying with the rest of the celebrities and gaining publicity. It wasn’t until an adult film leaked of her and her ex-boyfriend that she solidified her rise to fame. After the leak all the attention was on Kim, which led her to get a reality show with her family just a year later. 

“When I first heard about Kardashians tape, as her mother, I wanted to kill her. But as her manager, I knew that I had a job to do, and I really just wanted her to move past it” says Kris Jenner, Kardashian’s mother, and manager, in response to the adult film. 

Keeping up with The Kardashians”, was an extremely successful show, gaining high ratings almost immediately after its premiere. This is due to the nature of the show that captured the family’s dramatic, messy, and entertaining moments. Unfortunately, Kardashian began developing a bad image. She was seen at many nightlife events displaying questionable morality. 

It wasn’t till Kardashian started dating rapper Kanye West that she started maturing. Kardashian and West had their first child in 2014, and she made protecting her daughter her mission. Kardashian cleaned up her act and started focusing on the future. In 2017, Kardashian announced the launch of her first business,  KKW Beauty. 

Kardashian described her reasoning for launching her own beauty line as, “What began as a psoriasis diagnosis became the catalyst for my journey of skincare discoveries, inspiring me to learn more about my skin and how to care for it.”

KKW  grew instantly, and Kardashian took full advantage of the fame and money and invested in more businesses. Kardashian’s fragrance line, shapewear, and beauty line have been her fan favorites, she has also trademarked 72 names for any future projects.  Kim then sold it for one billion dollars. 

As time passed, Kim decided to go to law school to pursue her childhood dreams and follow her late father, Robert Kardashian’s footsteps.

 As of today, Kim Kardashian has made billions from these companies, and clearly showed her business success. Kardashian’s controversial past may stick with her forever, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t deserve respect for her present achievements.
