They say beauty is power, well if you're Kylie Jenner it may just make you into the newest entrepreneur of 2017.
19 year old Kylie Jenner is considered the youngest and most successful business woman of “2016-2017,” according to Investopedia, a highly noted website that allows readers who seek financial education and practical advice. Kylie is recognised as the most successful individual in the Kardashian-Jenner clan. But, what do her admirers think of her success? “I applaud her on her progressing success,” says Bryana Gonzalez, a high student who notices Miss. Jenner’s forth putting effort. Kylie Jenner is a rising celebrity, and an influential person towards today’s uprising youth.
However, not everyone sees Kylie as an influential individual. She is often characterized as a snotty and money driven teen. Nevertheless Kylie is considered one of the most influential people in today’s modern society due to her early involvements in the business industry. She graduated high school in 2015 as a 17 year old. Then, she launched her makeup brand and her very first calendar, in mid 2016. It is said that her ultimate goal, according to her official website, https://www.kyliecosmetics.com/pages/about, is to, “share her best kept beauty secrets with her fans.”
Like every beauty industry out there, there are two kinds of people. Some customers are hard to please and others simply don’t like the product. The others are satisfied with their products, such as Kylie’s lip products. The business industry is a brutal workplace for early starting entrepreneurs, however, for a high school student to recognise that Miss. Jenner has successfully become this year's entrepreneur, it must be a jaw dropping reality due to the fact that she has accumulated a staggering $10 million for “Kylie Cosmetics,” since 2016.
“I think that she has become an amazing entrepreneur… although I may not like the product there are others girls do,” said Jessica, a senior in high school student who aspires to obtain her own company.
Although the luxuries of Kylie are seen by her fans, and also seen as a part of the Kardashian-Jenner family, it is obvious that making your company is not all fun and games, but it requires hard work and dedication.
“It would be nice to own your own company, however there is a lot of work that has to be put into the business.” said Jessica Viella. It is inspiring to see students as young as 17 take note of the hard work that one must put into a business like “Kylie Cosmetics.” With that being said what do high school students think of the effects of Kylie’s company towards high schoolers? “I don’t think company affects us (high schooler) at all it just a group of people that are making there own business… however people do see Kylie Jenner as a spokes person; people use her as a guiding voice in order to build there own business,” said Jessica.
Kylie Jenner can be defined as a dedicated and devoted young women who can run a multimillion dollar company (not without the help of other of course) at a ripe age of 19. It is without a doubt that she is considered the youngest and most successful business woman/teenager of 2016-2017, due to her success in the beauty industry. It is because of this that several think that she will set the bar of success for future business owner high.
