Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian

Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian seem to have got their start in the spotlight in a way most people approve of. How many people do you know that get thrust into the spotlight the way that they did and still succeed? They’re both women and have both become empowering people. They both have their own brands. Paris has her own empire.

I first watched Paris on “THE SIMPLE LIFE” and on the show she acted like a dumb blonde, and yet I watched it every day.  I first saw Kim Kardashian in a photo with her sisters, and having a lot of sisters myself I found her interesting. I then started watching her on “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.” As much as you don’t like them for their choices or how easily you think they found fame. You stay addicted to watching them. They’re normal people who achieved extraordinary success through their brand and entrepreneurial endeavors.

You can be thrust in the spotlight the wrong way, but that doesn’t mean you can keep it. There are those like Farrah Abraham who haven’t made that turn around. Kim Kardashian is now married to Kanye West and has a beautiful family and is doing well. Paris Hilton is now worth 350 million and has a multi billion dollar empire. Her perfume lines are especially doing well. She seems to be richer than her parents now. The one place they’ve both struggled is in love. Kim got married a few times before she finally found her soulmate in a friend. Paris Hilton still can’t seem to find love.

Either way they’re both empowering as business women. So many of us have dreams to be just like them? Although, we’ll probably never achieve their magnitude of success, and we probably don’t have a family behind us. We can still learn a lot about how they kept pushing forwards despite naysayers and that’s the push factor you need to fly.
