After Kylie Jenner was pipped as the real-life, modern Oliver Twist by Forbes, a US tabloid has decided she deserves yet more praise heaped on her.

Jenner, according to Forbes, has a $900 million empire that will soon reach the $1 billion mark, and deserves her place in an inspiring group of "self-made" women.

If only we'd all chosen to grow up in an extravagantly rich family, we too could be extravagantly rich. Simple, when you think about it.

Now, New York Daily News has stepped in and asked the question on all our minds: what are the rest of you useless mortals doing? Other than writing sycophantic tweets about the privileged Kardashian-Jenner clan, of course.

Turns out, not much. Well, apart from the little, unimportant things like...

Raising children.

Saving lives.

Surviving and thriving.

Helping veterans.

Killing it as an actual rocket scientist.

Working two jobs.

Smashing expectations.
