If there is a bag that Keke Palmer hasn't secured, I'd like to see it, damn it.

From starring in her first feature film at only nine-years-old to booking her latest gig as the host of the VMAs, Keke is making her mark as the multi-hyphenate hustler the entertainment industry didn't know it needed and we are here for absolutely all of it.

Although her time on the Strahan, Sara, & Keke show has come to an end after the show's recent cancellation, this year alone, our good sis has announced a beauty partnership with OLAY, her latest role as the newest character on the Disney Channel's reboot of The Proud Family, and her plans for a millennial version of The View proving that although she's new to the game, she doesn't plan on folding anytime soon. With her mom as her manager and her personal life under wraps, Keke says that her career as a multi-hyphenate mogul is only getting started.

Securing multiple bags is totally the wave for 2020 and if you need some inspiration on how to level up your income and stack a few coins on the side, check out 4 of Keke Palmer's biggest money moves that will inspire you to elevate your hustle.

Hosting The 2020 VMAs

Although the COVID crisis has forced many brands to shift to social media for big events, Keke hasn't missed a beat. Earlier this month, it was announced that the 26-year-old star would be hosting the highly-anticipated award show on August 27 and we can't wait to tune-in.

Monetizing Her Social Media

Whoever told you that being your true, authentic self couldn't make you rich was a damn lie and Keke Palmer is living proof of this fact. Using her social media platform to explore different talents, Keke has become one of our favorite people to follow and we bought the merch to prove it. Selling t-shirts and other Keke-inspired paraphernalia, the star has quickly become a social media feed favorite.

Launching Her Self-Funded Record Label

When you get tired of asking for a seat at the table, you build your own, which is exactly what Keke Palmer did when she launched her self-funded record label, Big Bosses Entertainment, where she plans to not only release her own music but give other artists an opportunity to shine.

Becoming The Youngest Talk Show Host In Television History

Keke's addition to the Strahan & Sara Show was ground-breaking, but the star had already made history as the youngest television host when she inked a deal with BET for her own show Just Keke, in 2014.

It was December of 2009 that I made an impromptu decision to cut my permed hair off. My reason for making that drastic change was due to ending a dating relationship at the time and the painful experience I went through from relaxing my hair in my dorm a couple of months prior. Cutting my hair immediately left me feeling bold yet boy-ish whenever I found myself dressing down or not wearing lavish earrings. After several months experimenting with wearing twist-outs, dyeing it myself (I was extra bold with that) and even getting my first blowout (that later resulted in heat damage), I thought I'd been hiding my beautiful kinks due to laziness.

So, what exactly is K-Beauty? Well, it's not as complicated as it seems or sounds. Essentially, it is a skincare routine that uses Korean beauty products that originates from and is made in Korea. What makes K-beauty special is that the products are created using a Korean beauty philosophy. Unlike some skincare products that yield short-term results, Korean beauty products are designed to work long-term. The idea of long-term skincare isn't new.

So, if you've been rocking with this site for several years now, you might vaguely recall an article that I wrote, a couple of years back entitled, "Why You Need To Grieve Your Past Relationship". The bottom line was, if you don't make the time to go through the five stages of grief — denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance — even when it comes to the ending of a romantic relationship, you could 1) mistake a lack of thorough and proper grieving for still loving someone and/or 2) prolong the process of healing, so that you can actually move forward.
