According to Cosmopolitan, Kris worked as a flight attendant for one year in 1976. Kris’s time in the sky came to an end when she married powerhouse attorney Robert Kardashian. Kris was apparently a pleasant crew member. Her ex-boyfriend and professional photographer, Alfred M. Garcia, told Daily Mail that Kris was a social person and was “very friendly” to everyone.

“Maybe she could meet more people then she could working in a store because she was very friendly with people, and she was always looking out for the gold at the end of the rainbow,” Alfred exclaimed.

According to Forbes, the Kardashian-Jenner matriarch also holds stakes in Kim Kardashian’s KKW Beauty and SKIMS, Kylie Cosmestics, and Khloe’s Good American. Kris is also an investor in Kendall’s 818 Tequila and launched a hot sauce brand with Rob. Forbes estimates that Kris’s net worth sits at $200 million, thanks to her impressive business deals. Kris previously discussed her journey from reality star to mogul and explained that she always had a passion for business.

“It's part of my DNA. This is my element,” she told People. “I feel like when I relax or take a few days off for any reason and I'm gone for too long, I get really anxious.” Kris has since launched a Masterclass on the power of personal branding, as she hopes to teach others how to properly utilize their skillsets.

Kris has launched her own projects as well.

In addition to being the mother and manager of some of the most followed celebrities in the world, Kris has also forged her own path. In 2013, her talk show Kris premiered on Fox stations across the country and was her first solo television venture. Despite securing guests like Kanye “Ye” West and Kathie Lee Gifford, Kris was canceled after one season.

However, that didn't stop Kris from trying her hand at other opportunities. According to The U.S. Sun, Kris filed a trademark for her own clothing line in February 2022. According to the outlet, the trademark will cover “tops as clothing, bottoms as clothing, caftans, and loungewear.”
