Since it's debut in October 2007, KUWTK has been a huge ratings success for the E! network.

Kourtney and her family became famous. Aside from their reality show, the family has started their own business ventures.

While the family has turned in business moguls, they still film their reality series.

However, as Kourtney has stated, filming is exhausting with cameras following you around all the time.

Even her sisters Kim and Khloe have admitted filming is hard. During one episode of KUWTK, Kim and Khloe talked about how they have to film more and pick up the slack because Kourtney decided to take a step back.

Tired of the family drama

The Kardashians are known for being one big, dramatic family.

Of course the drama in the sisters' personal lives is displayed on television. From Kourtney relationship with Scott to Khloe learning about Tristan Thompson's betrayal, nothing is off limits with the show.

Aside from their relationship issues, it seems that the family bond is starting to show cracks.

Throughout the years, we've seen the Kardashian sisters get into arguments. But this season things get physical.

A promo for the show's upcoming season shows Kim and Kourtney throwing punches at each other.

While fans will question if the fight is real or staged, the ongoing drama may be too much for Kourtney, who feels she needs a break from her family.

Concentrate on other business ventures

Aside from the reality show, the Kardashian family has created their own empire.

Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe had their own boutiques and clothing lines. Younger sister Kylie Jenner has her makeup line.

While the sisters have their own businesses, the reality show remains their main focus.

However, Kourtney may be ready to quit being a reality star and become a businesswoman.

Recent reports suggest that she plans to follow in Kylie's steps and launch her own makeup line.

Kourtney wants to have a life away from the reality show, and it seems she's now focusing on other ventures for when she says goodbye to KUWTK.

Focus on being a mom

Kourtney is a mom to three children; sons Mason and Reign, and daughter Penelope.

Her children are often seen on KUWTK, in fact their births were filmed for the show.

Kourtney loves being a mom, yet she's concerned about showcasing her personal life too much on KUWTK.

With her children getting older, Kourtney may leave the show so she can spend more time with her children.

Kourtney loves being a mom, and even though she has the help of nannies, she tries to be as hands-on as she can.

Yet, with her filming schedule, it may be hard for Kourtney to be there for her kids all the time.

With her cutting back or possibly quitting the show altogether, Kourtney will have more time to devote to her children.
