Despite what Piers Morgan might believe, Kim Kardashian is a woman of many talents. In a recent chat with Interview Magazine, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star listed some of her skills, including cooking, using her toes for pretty much “everything,” and having a knack for marketing and business.
The aspiring mogul also made her mark in shapewear after launching her clothing company Skims in 2019. Her skincare line, Skkn By Kim (formerly KKW Beauty), has also reportedly hit a $1 billion valuation. As the icon herself once said, “Not bad for a girl with no talent.”
To be honest, it’s impressive that Kardashian has managed to turn her original success as a reality TV star into a billion-dollar fortune, and we think this is a respectable talent in her own right. Now she has a new endeavor on her hands — and it’s unlike anything we’ve ever seen from the reality star.
Private equity, meet Kim Kardashian
Kim Kardashian enters the world of private equity and names her company SKKY. It’s a far cry from the reality show that made her famous, but Kardashian has proven time and time again that she has the ability to take on new ventures and then thrive. The mother-of-four announced the news on Instagram, where she shared a logo for her new company along with a note mentioning that her mother Kris Jenner would be a partner in the company.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the company will focus on “investing in and building consumer and media businesses.” The reality star-turned-businesswoman sounds excited about her new venture, telling the outlet, “The exciting part is sitting down with these founders and finding out what their dream is. I want to support what that is, not change who they are in their DNA, just support and take them to another level.”
Additionally, it looks like Kardashian is in good hands as she has teamed up with Jay Sammons, a former Carlyle partner who will oversee the day-to-day running of the company. He certainly has what it takes, having previously invested in brands like Beats By Dre and Supreme. Only time will tell how this new partnership pans out, but so far it looks like a winning team.
