North West may have been born into an over-the-top life of luxury, but according to her mother Kim Kardashian, she'll still be getting a job.

In an interview with London's Evening Standard, Kim (who just turned 34 on Tuesday) shared that her parenting strategy includes having her daughter earn her success the old fashioned way: through hard work. "I was saying that earlier to my friends, ‘I wonder what [North's] first job is gonna be.' And they were like, ‘What? She's gonna have a job?' and I was like, ‘Are you kidding me? Of course she is,'" the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star told the publication.

She added, "She will have to work for what she wants."

As for the jobs Kim imagines her daughter having, she thinks it'll have something to do with fashion. "Maybe she'll be a designer," she quipped. "Who knows? It's too early to tell."

Kim admits that her parents made her work hard for the money. "I saved up for this Dolce & Gabbana dress I really wanted, or like in high school these Prada shoes that my parents wouldn't buy me. And I remember they were $400, and I had to save for the entire year to get them," the style-savvy reality star recalled. "We didn't get anything, we had to get a job if we wanted it. So I was working in a clothing store and I would save and save."

It's clear this fashionista knew what she wanted at a young age. Case in point, here's Kim predicting her fame to ET back in middle school!
