Her ability to coordinate everything with a tiny workforce has made her the envy of other entrepreneurs. Forbes revealed that she has seven full-time and five part-time employees working for her, yet she makes such groundbreaking profits and returns – thanks to the power of social media where she previews new products, launches and outings to her over 175 million followers on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat etc.
As a brainy woman, she outsourced manufacturing and packaging to a private-label producer called Seed Beauty in nearby Oxnard, California. This eliminates the burden of a large workforce. Her sales are handled by online merchant Shopify while her mother, Kris manages her finances and PR for a fee.
When Kylie Cosmetics launched in Ulta in 50 states, in some stores inventory was gone in hours. It was a real frenzy.
While Kylie Cosmetics is worth $900 million, her other endorsements and sources of income catapulted her to the top as the youngest ever self-made billionaire at 21.
