Kim Kardashian is arguably one of the most famed person in the world; If not the world definitely in the US. Her rise to fame has been infamous to say the least. A sex tape fiasco, a drama filled relationship with a footballer boyfriend and probably the most infamous of them all, a 72 day marriage. Whatever opinion you may hold regarding Kim, there are a few things we can definitely learn from her;
Love the skin you’re in
Kim has always been proud of her body and has never apologized for not being thin and skinny. She has curves and funny enough, it’s her curves that make her hot. The rest of us could learn from that. So many times we complain about that extra 5 pounds, not because it really bothers us but because society tells us it should. We are bombarded with ad images of rail thin, anorexic looking models telling us this is how we should look to be happy. Kim has broken the mold on that. It’s too bad she hasn’t taken her curvaceous body on the road to inspire young girls that it’s ok to have a little meat on their bones.
Get Your Hustle on
Kim Kardashian knows how to get her hustle on. Her estimated net worth is almost forty million. She’s not just a pretty face but a very savvy business woman. From part ownership of Dash, a clothes line, perfumes, endorsement deals for weight loss products and sale of pictures of her wedding to Kris Humpries,she is reeling in the bucks. Here are some statistics for you according to Forbes for Kim in 2013
# 66 Celebrity 10
# 91 in Money
# 15 in TV/Radio
# 28 in Press
# 15 in Social
# 98 in Marketability
# 7 in 2012
Kim made an estimated 10 million in 2013 and a rumored 18 million from her extravagant infamous wedding in 2012. Her salary per episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians moved from $15000 to $80,000, almost three times to what us regular folks would probably make in a year. Keep it up Kim, goes to show women can be business savvy too.
Turn Setbacks into Comebacks
Some of the things that happened to Kim would have turned the rest of us into shrinking violets. After the sex tape drama many thought she would crawl under a rock and hide. Instead she took a negative and turned it to positive. She took the infamy and turned it into reality TV gold. How many of us could bounce back from a scandal like that? We would have been on the first plane to Timbuktu turning ourselves into hermits. After being the butt of jokes and being accused of fraud for her 72 days marriage, she went on to have Baby North with soon to be hubby Kanye West and recently snagged the coveted spot of a cover on Vogue. Goes to show, your past do not confine or define who you are or who you can be , always seek to find the positive in the negative.
