Kylie Jenner and a Handful of Other Gen Z'ers Made America’s Richest Self-Made Women List

It's that wonderful time of year when Forbes releases its annual list of the list of America’s Richest Self-Made Women. The 60 women who made it have a combined net worth of $71 billion, up 15% from $61.5 billion in 2017. The minimum net worth needed to make this year’s list is $320 million, up from $260 million last year.

So many impressive women made the cut including Diane Hendricks, cofounder and chairman of ABC Supply and Marian Ilitch, $4.3 billion, founder of Little Ceasars, Oprah, and Doris Fisher, cofounder of The Gap. But we have to give major props to cover girl Kylie Jenner who at not even 21 years old has a $900 million cosmetics empire (which she owns 100% of.) The fortune she has amassed is really due to her amazing social media presence. Remember the day she almost broke Snapchat?

“It’s incredible to be recognized for something I’m so passionate about, and I’m really grateful for that. I’ve always loved makeup and worked really hard to bring the first lip kit to market. Connecting with my fans and creating product that excites them has been an incredible process. I’ve learned so much along the way and I hope to inspire others to follow their dreams,” Jenner told Forbes.

Jenner is not in the Top 10 but this is still a very significant ranking. Jenner is just one of the handful of Gen Z women who made it on to the list. Anastasia Soare, founder of Anastasia of Beverly Hills, came in at number 21 ($1 billion); Huda Kattan, founder of Huda Beauty, was number 37 at $550 million, and Anne Wojcicki, cofounder and chief executive officer of 23andMe, was number 44 at $440 million.

She looks a lot older with this hairstyle. But I'm a bit jealous, because while I write my essay australia, this young princess is in the top of the reachest... For just being born in the "right" family. Insane.


I don’t think I can agree with the idea that Kendall is a self made business women. Now the women that has become self made is Oprah. She work hard and long years to get where she is now. The definition of self made is: made by oneself. And we all know how the Kardashian’s started there wealth. I’m by all means not hating on Kendall or the Kardashian’s, I just personally know how to work hard with so many Dynamics I have to face . And well the had the money in the bank before she even knew how to count money. I would to know if she become self made billionaire and if she could teach other young women or men how to become one themselves. Then I will believe that she was a self made billionaire. Is there a book out there?

I’m sorry for the fans out there but we as human we need to help develop one another to become better people. I just don’t see her doing this by any form of education. That most of the world need to go through to get to be become a self made.

Thank you for reading
