In contrast to most college-aged kids who get by with minimum wage pay cheques, 21-year-old Kylie Jenner just earned herself the tag of being youngest self-made billionaire.
Forbes declared Tuesday that Jenner had beaten Facebook co-founder and boss Mark Zuckerberg, who was 23 when he touched the billion dollar benchmark.
I didnt assume anything. I did not predict the future, Jenner voiced to Forbes. But (the appreciation) feels truly good. It is like an encouraging pat on my back.”
Jenner, the newest member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, started Kylie Cosmetics in 2015.
Forbes evaluates that the makeup company by itself is worth over $900 million and praises its success in part to the uncomplicatedness.
Kylie Cosmetics has seven full-time employees and 5 part-time workers, the outlet reports.
And with 128 million (and counting) Instagram followers, Jenner is able to promote to a loyal fanbase.
Its the influence of social media, she added. I had such a solid reach before I was able to start anything.
