The doyenne of the Kardashian family has made her children household names and commands an army of fans who follow her every move on social media and television. After running multiple companies, launching the careers of the world’s most famous clan, and becoming a celebrity in her own right, Jenner knows a thing or two about living your best life, and during her Forces of Fashion panel she gave tips on how to succeed in business, family, and everything in between.
At the Vogue “Forces of Fashion” conference in New York City on Thursday, the 62-year-old matriarch sat down for a conversation with Vogue.com creative director Sally Singer to discuss the future of her family business.
Here are 3 amazing business tips from the conference.
Lesson 1: You Better Wake Up Early
“I get up really early every morning at about 4 or 5; I don’t sleep a lot, so I’m trying to get a lot done early morning. I plan everything, make sure everything is fine all the way [while] I’m on the treadmill. I drink lots of coffee to get me going. I plan my day while Europe is up, get in most of my phone calls while New York is up, and by the time Los Angeles wakes up, I’m ready to go.”
Lesson 2: Assess the Skills of Your Team
“I think that what I’ve learned over the years is how to find that balance and [know] what each one of my kids is capable of. One thing is that I couldn’t have all the greatest ideas in the world if I didn’t have kids with an amazing work ethic and creativity. My job is affected by the fact that they’re so engaged every day. It’s really great, and so that makes the biggest difference.”
Lesson 3: Listen to Ryan Seacrest
“When we first started filming our show in 2006, I remember getting a phone call from my partner Ryan Seacrest, telling me to check out Twitter and show Kim because she’s going to know what to do with this. I said okay, and she really led the way for the rest of us with social media. I think one of the things that was impressive was that year she decided to do her first fragrance, which was Kim Kardashian, and I remember her posting on Twitter a picture of the bottle, and she said to me, ‘I’m going to see what they want to buy; do you want the black bottle with the trim or the baby pink.’ In that one action she got such amazing feedback, and that was such an interesting thing for us. I thought she was asking the air, but she taught the rest of us.”
