In the midst of being a superstar Mom-ager, Executive Producer for her own reality show, President of her own production company (the list goes on); Kris Jenner still some how found time to slay the cover for I Fathom Magazine 2013 Winter Edition. I know everyone has their own point of view when it comes to the Kardashians, but personally I have nothing but the upmost respect when it comes to hardworking people. It is without a doubt that Kris seldomly sleeps but she doesn’t complain because she absolutely loves what she does. Kris is a branding genius and there’s nothing you can do but admire her work ethic for what it is.
On her feature for I Fathom’s Magazine’s 2013 Winter Edition, Kris offered advice for people looking to become entrepreneurs and working on their brands. I know one thing for sure. I made sure to take notes on her advice, a lot of what she said hit close to home for myself as I’m on my own journey to building and developing my brand.
Catch a few highlights below:
“Well, you know what, it has to come from a place where you have a passion for what you want to do in life and my biggest passion is my family and that’s where my heart is. But in order to make it all work and happen, it’s something that I’ve been able to figure out and it’s kind of evolved over the years, but, I think that it helps that I have good organizational skills and I like to prioritize and make lists. I check things off my list and I find great satisfaction in that. So I’m kind of like the crazy, overachiever even if it comes to how I clean my kitchen or how I organize my closet. So then that kind of just bleeds into how I spend time with my kids and my family. Lucky for me, we all work together, so that makes it nice, but when we’re not, they end up here on the weekends and everywhere we are and it’s just really been something that you have to remember that these are memories that you are going to make and you’re going to have for the rest of your life, so enjoy it.”
“If someone says no, you’re talking to the wrong person. I think just never give up, find something that you want to do in life and then you figure out a way to get paid for it, and have that be your lifelong dream and career, then you’re doing something that makes you happy, and that you’re good at. I have a creative side and a nurturing side and a business side, but I also have a lot of passionate sides so I like figuring things out. I get up and I have a different job every day, I do a lot of different things and it makes it real exciting for me. Most people have one thing, one occupation or one job and I think you just have to learn to spice that up a little bit and put different twists and be creative and not get into a rut. And I think that you could find a lot of happiness in just trying new stuff within your business.”
“Well, I think that you have to build a brand that you believe in and that rings true to who you are. It’s like if I have something that comes my way that’s offered for the kids and it doesn’t make sense or it’s not something that they would really use or do or be a part of, then it’s not going to work. So, I think, first you have to find something that’s real authentic to who you are, what you’re interested in, feeling passionate about and creative and you kind of go from there. If you are figuring it out and you already have a career path, then you just have to work on being the best that you can be and put a lot of energy into that business, because it’s not going work unless you work really hard. The one thing I tell everyone is, you really have to roll your sleeves up and be there and be present in whatever you’re doing because nothing comes easy.”
