Many stars have discovered that there is even more money and fortune to be made outside of their acting, singing, and television careers. These celebrities have launched businesses of their own and have become CEOs of their own companies, laughing all the way to the bank. 

Their level of fame makes it easy to establish a brand or to sell a product since they already have a fan base to start with, but to make sure their companies remain successful and relevant requires a lot of work.
