Why the Kardashians Are Way Smarter Than People Give Them Credit For

It’s easy to judge people from afar. So many of us are guilty of looking at things and thinking that we know everything we need to know. And so many people are guilty of doing that very thing to the Kardashian family.

Just look at the way people are reacting to Kim Kardashian’s desire to become a lawyer. It’s as if people think she has no business even trying to pursue her dreams.

But thinking that the Kardashian family is dumb or that anyone in the family is not capable would be a serious miscalculation. A deeper look at the family reveals that the Kardashian clan is smarter than people give them credit for.

Their show has been on forever

Yes, it’s a reality show. How much work can it really take to let people come in and film your life? But it’s more than being pretty for the camera. Creating a successful reality show takes a lot of work and a lot of smarts.

Keeping Up With the Kardashians premiered on October 14, 2007, now it in its 12th year of production. During that time, many reality shows and “stars” have come and gone. But the Kardashian family has been a staple for the E! Network since it premiered and has continued to bring in tremendous ratings.

At the time that the show premiered, Kim Kardashian was the most famous of the family, but she was still relatively unknown. Over the show’s 16 seasons, Kardashian has become a household name and every member of the family has gained a tremendous following.

They know how to work the endorsement deals and create empires

Speaking of followings, every member of the Kardashian family has an incredibly large social media following. Kim alone has 134 million followers on Instagram. Kylie Jenner has 132 million followers. With such a large following comes a demand for endorsement deals.

The Kardashian family has teamed up with major brands including Calvin Klein, diet products, and phone accessories.

The girls have also branched out and created their own product lines as well. Kylie Jenner has been the most successful of them all, recently being named by Forbes as the youngest self-made billionaire.

Her cosmetics brand, Kylie Cosmetics, just recently joined up with Ulta Cosmetics and is now worth an estimated $900 million.

Kim also has a cosmetics line, KKW Beauty. Though not as lucrative as her sister’s brand, it still brings in a pretty penny.  

They don’t let others hold them down

The Kardashians have created such an enormous net worth that it would be easy for them to sit back and just live off their earnings. But for Kim Kardashian, her celebrity lifestyle is not enough. She recently revealed that she has spent the last year studying to become a lawyer.

In order to become a lawyer, Kardashian must complete a four-year internship, pass the “baby bar” and pass the California bar. The journey to becoming a lawyer will take a lot of dedication and require Kardashian to learn a lot.

The California state bar is notorious for being one of the most difficult tests to pass, so if Kardashian can successfully get through the test, there will be no doubt that she is smarter than people give her credit for.

The Kardashian family has created a successful entertainment business as well as very successful product lines. They have learned out to market themselves in a way that earns them millions of dollars a year. What they have created and maintained has required a great deal of strategy, hard work, and dedication. And even after all this time, it doesn’t look like they’re going anywhere anytime soon.
