Kylie Jenner Forbes el heraldo de Cusco Noticias

Something that was expected from the middle of last year, happened in March of this year when Forbes magazine placed 21-year-old Kylie Jenner on the list of the richest people on earth; But not only that, but also the youngest person to reach the exclusive club of “the three comas”, being the youngest billionaire in history, snatching said throne from Mark Zuckerberg, who reached the list at age 23 . Something that many people in the world did not like was that last year when the income of Kylie Jenner was estimated to the richest people in the world of Forbes; the cover of August 2018 was published in which Kylie Jenner was defined as “the youngest billionaire in history made by herself”; which he did not like in many publications that accused the magazine of not being related to reality because, Kylie Jenner, would be the daughter of very rich people besides their success “should” to the connections that it has in the world of fashion . However, in our case (which is not the same as a fashion magazine), what we wanted to highlight is that it is actually the youngest person to belong to the list of billionaires in the world, with 21 years.

Rich women

Something that we must highlight is that, of the list of Forbes’ youngest billionaires, the first three are women. Kylie Jenner, Alexandra Andresen and Katharina Andresen. In addition 4 of the 10 youngest billionaires are women. In addition, the richest woman in the world is ranked number 15; Francoise Bettencourt Meyers, followed by Alice Walton at # 17 in the world. The data highlighted by Forbes magazine about Kylie Jenner are:

  • At age 21, the mogul turned make-up artist, Kylie Jenner, a member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, is the youngest multi-millionaire who has made herself.
  • Jenner, who started selling lip kits for $ 29 in 2015, sold an estimated $ 360 million at Kylie Cosmetics in 2018.
  • In November 2018, Jenner launched a distribution agreement with beauty retailer Ulta and sold an estimated $ 55 million in just 6 weeks.
  • Thanks to its super low overhead and its massive sales, the company is worth at least $ 900 million. Jenner has a 100% interest.
  • Jenner, who comes from a wealthy family, has harnessed his 177 million followers on social media to create his own billion-dollar fortune.
  • He used $ 250,000 of his earnings from modeling concerts to pay an outside company to produce his first 15,000 lip kits.

Kylie Jenner has made herself?

We did not want to touch on this topic, but since in Forbes they keep repeating it even this year, we are going to transcribe here the explanation that Forbes magazine has given about whether Kylie Jenner has made herself.


5 de marzo de 2019 actualización: Kylie Jenner acaba de ascender en las filas de los multimillonarios del mundo. Así que el tema de “¿Es ella realmente hecha a sí misma?” ha vuelto a subir. Nuestra definición sigue en pie.

Poco después de que Forbes publicara el miércoles nuestra lista de las Mujeres Más Ricas de América a nivel mundial, con la magnate de los cosméticos Kylie Jenner del clan Jenner-Kardashian en la portada, las preguntas comenzaron a aparecer en línea. ¿Cómo podría Kylie Jenner hacerse a sí misma? Ella viene de una familia rica y famosa. Su media hermana, Kim Kardashian West, la hizo famosa. Su madre ayudó a construir su negocio.

Para ser claros, Forbes define “hecho a sí mismo” como alguien que construyó una empresa o estableció una fortuna por su cuenta, en lugar de heredar parte o la totalidad de ella. Siempre que el miembro de la lista no haya heredado un negocio o dinero, se le califica a sí misma. Pero el término es muy amplio y no refleja adecuadamente cuán lejos han llegado algunas personas y, en términos relativos, cuánto más fácil lo han tenido otras personas.

Para abordar este problema y brindar más claridad, Forbes ideó un sistema de puntuación en 2014 que clasificó a los miembros de la lista de Forbes 400 de los estadounidenses más ricos en una escala del 1 al 10 en términos de su propia creación. Según esa escala, alguien que heredó todo obtuvo un 1, mientras que alguien que no solo creció pobre, sino que también experimentó dificultades considerables, como Oprah Winfrey, obtuvo un 10. Kylie Jenner, que proviene de una familia adinerada y que ha aprovechado su fama a su favor, ocupa un 7.
