REALLY???? Kylie Jenner Is the Youngest "Self-Made" Billionaire Ever

Last summer,"Forbes"raised some eyebrows when they said KYLIE JENNER was poised to become the youngest "self-made" billionaire in history. Not because of the "billionaire" part, but because of the "self-made" part. Well, it's official: She's officially worth$1 BILLION, and at 21 years old, she did it two years faster than the previous record-holder,Mark Zuckerberg.

As you surely know by now,most of Kylie's money comesfromKylie Cosmetics, which she launched four years ago. The business is now worth more than $900 million, and she owns 100% of it.Naturally, everyone is once again mocking"Forbes"for calling Kylie "self-made." She wasn't exactly an unknown teenager in Nebraska with a dream.

She started her career on third base thanks to her regular appearances on her family's reality shows, beginning when she was 10. People started buying her lip-kits because of who SHE was, not because of what the PRODUCT was.

In any event, even if it was Kylie's vision from the start, and even if she's a savvy businesswoman, she benefited not only from her platform, but also the resources and connections available to her, as a member of a wealthy celebrity family.
