Los Angeles, Nov 8 (IANS): Socialite Kim Kardashian says she is an astute businesswoman and has worked hard for half of her life.
The 32-year-old shot to fame after her sex tape with singer Ray J was leaked and later released on DVD in 2007.
Talking about her sisters Kourtney and Khole and herself, Kim told thesun.co.uk: "We are three girls that grew up in Beverly Hills. But people have seen in our show we have all worked hard, really hard, to get to where we are. We all had jobs working in stores since 16."
Kim, 32, who launched her new affordable clothing collection with sister Kourtney, 33, in London Wednesday encouraged other people to follow in her entrepreneurial footsteps.
"I would definitely encourage people to go into business. But they have to make sure it is a business that makes sense. You have to really believe in it, fine-tune it, have the right people, stay committed and go for it," she said.
