By 2007, Keeping Up with the Kardashians had premiered on television, and Kardashian became pop culture’s newest “it girl.” With a curvy figure, unique look, and stunning sense of style, Kardashian West quickly became one of the pioneers of influencer culture, taking to social media to share her thoughts with her fans, and soliciting their feedback on various projects.

Over the years, Kardashian West defined her own personal brand, launching multiple fragrances, a bestselling shapewear line, a cosmetics brand, and much more. In addition, she is a busy mom of four kids and is working on becoming a lawyer.

There’s no doubt that she got to where she is through a bit of luck and a lot of hard work. As it turns out, she comes by her work ethic honestly.

These days, Jenner might be of retirement age, but she’s clearly one of the hardest-working women in show business.

In a recent interview with WSJ. Magazine, Jenner and Kardashian West opened up about their unique relationship, and how Jenner helped shape her daughter. In the process, Kardashian West revealed that she owes a lot of her energy and work ethic to Jenner.

“I’ve never met someone who knows how to have such a good time but also have it so together. That’s why I get up at 5:58 every morning,” Kardashian West said, referring to her mother.

“If it was 7 a.m. and we weren’t up and our beds weren’t made, she would be on the intercom screaming and waking us all up,” Kardashian West recalled. “On a Sunday, we were so embarrassed because all my friends would sleep in until 10, and she was like, ‘Till…what? Like, past 7? This doesn’t make sense.’ She was so strict with us on so many things but then so much fun. So she taught us so much of our work ethic. That was all her.”
