Some people are taking issue with Forbes putting Kylie Jenner on its list of the richest "self-made" women in the US, but the publication's reasoning makes sense.

On Wednesday, Forbes released its August 2019 "America's Women Billionaires" issue with Jenner on the cover. The magazine estimates Jenner's net worth to be roughly 0 million, making her the 27th-richest self-made woman in the US.

"Another year of growth will make her the youngest self-made billionaire ever, male or female, trumping Mark Zuckerberg, who became a billionaire at age 23," Forbes reported.

"We consider any person who built her own fortune, and didn't inherit the money, to be self-made," . "So top executives at tech firms who are compensated for helping significantly grow companies make the ranks but not second-generation women running family businesses."

For example, the richest woman in the world, Alice Walton, the Walmart heiress whose net worth is estimated to be , is not on the self-made-billionaires list because her wealth is inherited. But the richest self-made woman in America, Diane Hendricks, who cofounded and chairs ABC Supply, is worth just one-tenth of Walton, .
