Kylie Jenner Hit The 10 Figure Mark – Youngest Self-Made Billionaire by Forbes
According to Forbes billionaires’ list, the youngest Kardashian family member, Kylie Jenner has been named the world’s youngest self-made billionaire.
She has beaten the Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg who set his record at the age 23.
Kylie founded Kylie Cosmetics three years before and is known to be making her fortune from this best selling cosmetics business.
She told Forbes:
“I didn’t expect anything. I did not foresee the future. But [the recognition] feels really good. That’s a nice pat on the back.”
However, the word ‘self-made’ drew some backlash stating the fact of her being born with a silver spoon.
“The self-made thing is true, my parents told me I needed to make my own money, it’s time to learn how to save and spend your own money, stuff like that. What I’m trying to say is, I did have a platform, but none of my money is inherited.”
She actually built her own fortune, starting the business with the money she made from modeling, not inheritance.
