Kourtney Kardashian then and now has been taken the advantage of her family’s influence to gain success in business after failing from the entertainment.
The background of Kourtney Kardashian
Kourtney Mary Kardashian was born on April 18, 1979. She is the eldest daughter of Mrs. Kris Jenner and Mr. Robert Kardashian. Kourtney’s childhood was associated with Marymount High School, a school filled with only Catholic girls.
After graduating, she continued studying at the University of Arizona and earned a bachelor’s degree in theater arts. Here, Kourtney studied with star Nicole Richie and professional basketball player Luke Walton.
Facing difficulties when entering the showbiz
Currently, many magazines and major newspapers introduced Kourtney as MC, model, and entrepreneur. However, she only gained fame when she appeared in the show Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
Previously, Kourtney appeared in the reality show Filthy Rich: Cattle Drive. But with a height of 1.55 m and an unimpressive ability to play the role, she was only a lackluster actress in the US. Later, thanks to Kim’s aura, Kourtney gradually realized her ambition to change her life.

Kourtney’s acting career only stood out when she appeared with her family. From the leading role in the Keeping Up with the Kardashians series on E!, she continued appearing in reality shows like Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami, Kourtney and Kim Take New York.
However, her career path just ended there. A number of other reality movies and TV shows that she had participated in such as One Life to Live, I Am Cait, and Flip It Like Disick did not leave any impression.

The re-appearance in One Life to Live in 2011 became a “stain” for Kourtney’s life. Although there were only two lines of the script, she still thought that her script was too long and constantly made it difficult for the crew. Finally, she boldly declared: “I’m not an actress.”
Turning into business and gaining the success
Recognizing that cinema was not her paradise, Kourtney took advantage of the influence of her family to do business and become a famous businesswoman.
In 2010, Kourtney, Kim, and Khloé released a clothing line called Bebe. The three sisters continued launching the jewelry collection in cooperation with VSA Designs in Mar 2020. In August of the same year, Kourtney announced that she was partnering with the K-Dash brand.
Also in 2010, she entered the beauty market and introduced an artificial tan skin product called Kardashian Glamor Tan. In addition, she published the autobiography Kardashian Konfquil, exposing many secrets of her family.
In 2017, Kourtney once again affirmed her serious investment in the business field when launching her own fashion brand. Last year, she continued publishing her own website, Poosh, which specializes in lifestyle and fashion. This website is getting a lot of followers.
