Anyways, back to the whole private equity thing. Kim took to her Instagram to share with her 329 million followers more about her latest business venture, and well, she broke the internet again! According to the SKKY Partners Instagram, the "company's target sectors include consumer products, digital & e-commerce, consumer media, hospitality and luxury," and "focuses on both control and minority investments in high-growth, market-leading consumer and media companies." Kim also shared that in addition to her co-founder Sammons, momager Kris Jenner will be hopping on board as one of the firm's partners. What a trio!

Well, we cannot wait to see Kimmy take her talents to new degrees and use her skills as a brand founder to boost other companies -and continue being the ultimate boss, of course. Stay tuned.
