5 Businesses That Kim Kardashian Owns
Keeping Up with the Kardashians
Okay, she doesn't technically own Keeping Up With the Kardashians, but it is what really got her and the family into the business. Kris Jenner, Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, and Kourtney Kardashian all take a part in the show's setup as executive producers. Collectively, the family earns about $500,000 per episode.
Keep in mind, that's not a definite number; there's still quite a bit of speculation as to the exact dollar amount that the reality show pulls in. However, it's safe to say that the money and exposure that Kim and the family gained from Keeping Up with the Kardashians helped to boost their fanbase and their ability to create new businesses individually.
No longer were the Kardashian sisters tied to the DASH clothing store that they started together, and eventually closed doors for good in April of 2018. Khloe went on to successfully open her Good American line while Kourtney recently launched POOSH, affectionately named after her Penelope.
Poosh is actually her nickname.
Kim Kardashian Hollywood and Kimoji Games
You can tell Kim put a lot of thought into her mobile game by the many details incorporated, from her clothing style to her family members. She wanted the app to mirror her real life while adding challenges, rewards, and fun interactive activities. Her sisters went on to create their own mobile apps as well, but as of recently it's been decided to no longer continue updating the games.
They had a good run, and fans certainly enjoyed feeling as though they were right there with their idols. At $2.99 per subscription, you can probably guess that they've created plenty of income in the time that the mobile apps were active.
“We’ve had an incredible experience connecting with all of you thorough our apps these past few years but have made the difficult decision to no longer continue updating in 2019. We truly hope you’ve enjoyed this journey as much as we have, and we look forward to what’s ahead.”— Kim Kardashian West
Before her makeup line, the Kim Kardashian West perfume line was born. It started off with KKW Body, and the bottle was an actual mold of her figure. She then went on to create a KKW Hearts scent and a KKW Crystal Gardenia scent. Most recently, she added the Kylie Jenner perfume to her site as well.
With the unique bottle shape, it's no wonder the fragrance line continues to do so well.
What's your favorite Kim Kardashian owned business?
Among the four children that she has already, KKW Beauty has to be her fifth baby. When the company launched in 2017, they sold out almost immediately. Kim's makeup line has everything from eye palettes, to lip kits, to foundation. Her most recent endeavor being her full coverage body makeup.
With Kim inheriting psoriasis from her mother, Kris Jenner, it's been a major insecurity of hers. Her life and career in the public eye have taught her that people will find any reason to pick you apart. Perhaps this is why she is able to maintain such a large fanbase; Kim's followers can relate to her.
If you've ever wondered how she manages to squeeze herself into those itty bitty outfits, look to her shapewear. Kim Kardashian has always used shapewear to smooth out the lumps and bumps that underwear and bras create, and to keep her looking slim when walking the red carpet.
The line was initially named Kimono, but received major backlash and was changed to Skims. Critics felt that the original name was "cultural appropriation" due to the original meaning of the word, it actually refers to a traditional Japanese clothing garment.

How Does Kim Kardashian Keep Such Loyal Fans?
Just like the Kimono fiasco, Kim has always been very transparent and honest about issues with her products. If there is a delay in production or a major problem with the advertising she's using, she doesn't hide or remain silent. Kim is quick to address and make the necessary changes in order to keep people happy.
She takes the feedback that the public offers and continuously uses it to better her product lines, as well as create new ones. Her newest endeavor? Kim Kardashian has officially begun to actively study for the California Bar Exam. She has successfully helped to release inmates like Alice Marie Johnson, who was sentenced to life in prison. She also gave Alice a part in her Skims advertising!
Perhaps she didn't get off on the best foot in the eyes of the public, but Kim Kardashian has become a highly successful businesswoman, wife, mother, sister, and aunt.
