Ivanka Trump (40) was born into wealth, but she worked hard to build a reputation as a respected businesswoman in her own right. Not your average heiress, she’s spent more time in the boardroom than on the party circuit. Since her father’s resignation, Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner, have remained largely focused on business and enterprise.

Widely known as the second child of former President Donald Trump and Ivana Trump, Ivanka’s combined net worth with Kushner is $800 million, according to the South China Morning Post. Ivanka’s net worth alone is estimated at $300 million.

Ivanka’s trust brings in $5 million a year and she has also launched several successful businesses over the past few decades. As a teenager in boarding school, Ivanka began building a personal nest egg through modeling gigs for brands such as Tommy Hilfiger, Sasson Jeans, Versace, Marc Bouwer and Thierry Mugler, Celebrity Net Worth reported.

IMDb shared one of Trump’s most famous quotes: “I make money because I have to pay for everything but my tuition. My mom even makes me pay my own phone bill. With this work ethic instilled from an early age, Ivanka was never shy about taking on a challenge. She graduated summa cum laude in 2004 with a degree in economics from the University of Pennsylvania, according to IMDb. She went on to pursue careers in business, real estate and television.

Business ventures of Ivanka Trump

Prior to joining the Trump Organization, where she served as executive vice president of real estate development and acquisitions, Ivanka was an entrepreneur in her own right. She worked with Dynamic Diamond Corp. to design her own line of fine jewelry. Ivanka Trump on Madison Ave. was the brand’s first flagship retail store, operating from 2007 to 2015.

After that, she launched a line of handbags and shoes sold by Macy’s, Lord & Taylor, Bloomingdale’s, Nordstrom and Dillard’s, according to Business Insider. The line generated up to $75 million in annual revenue at its peak, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

She then launched a women’s workwear line, which generated $100 million in annual revenue. Trump received 7% of the lines’ wholesale revenue, bringing in about $10 million a year until she shut down the lines in 2018.

Trump was named the president’s senior adviser in 2017 but did not receive a salary for the role.

Ivanka Trump: earnings from books and television

Trump made frequent appearances on his father’s reality show “The Apprentice”, eventually replacing Carolyn Kepcher as the boardroom judge during the show’s sixth season as well as on “The Celebrity Apprentice”.

Other television appearances include hosting the “Miss Teen USA Pageant” in 1997 and working on “Gossip Girl”, where she appeared as herself.

Trump is the author of two books – “The Trump Card: Playing to Win in Work and Life”, published in 2009, and “Women Who Work: Rewriting the Rules for Success”, published in 2017.

Ivanka Trump’s vacation in style

Ivanka spends long hours at the office, but she also likes to swap her high heels for sandals during family vacations.

In December 2016, she and Kushner took their children to a tropical retreat at the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai in Hawaii. Nightly rates at the five-star resort are currently between $1,000 and $1,200, according to TripAdvisor.

The trip, however, was not lavish. The family made the first leg of the trip on JetBlue, according to the New York Post.

Ivanka Trump’s wedding

Trump and Kushner wed in October 2009 at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey — a venue that costs an average of $54,000 to $62,000, according to Showbiz Cheat Sheet.

The bride’s Vera Wang wedding dress is said to have cost $50,000, while her jewelry is said to cost up to $265,000. The pieces included platinum and diamond earrings, a bracelet and a hairpiece.

The 13-layer wedding cake was adorned with real flowers and reportedly cost $70,000, according to Showbiz Cheat Sheet.

Ivanka Trump: Real Estate

Both Trump and Kushner have a background in real estate investing, so it’s no surprise they’ve resided in some of the country’s most expensive ZIP codes. During his father’s presidency, Trump and Kushner rented a $5.5 million, 6,870 square foot home in Washington, D.C., according to Town & Country.

Before moving to the nation’s capital following her father’s inauguration, Ivanka and her family lived in a $16 million four-bedroom penthouse apartment in New York City, located in the Trump Park Avenue building.

Ivanka paid $1.52 million for another condo in the same building. She bought the two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo in 2004 when she was still single. The property originally came on the market in December 2016 for $4.1 million, or $15,000 in monthly rent, according to Town & Country.
