What do Gwyneth Paltrow and Jay Z have in common? If you can’t figure it out, we will enlighten you and say that they are both prestigious CEOs that have no boundaries when it comes to wealth.
It seems that for some celebrities being famous for just one talent isn’t an option. When opportunity strikes and intellect helps, these celebs don’t settle down just for being pretty or just for a safe image that will bring them limited fame.
Celebrities like Diddy, Gisele Bundchen, Oprah Winfrey and Ashton Kutcher saw being the fame and decided to take matter in their own hands. And we can’t blame them. Why have other represent you when you can do it by yourself? If you are going to sell yourself, why not make a brand out of your name and set the price yourself?
Different point of view
Stars like Jessica Alba see things from a different point of view. Everybody wants safe environments for their families, so this might be the perfect opportunity to invest in such a cause, considering the fact that celebrities do benefit of the financial support of creating a healthy, innovative or qualitative products. And sure it helps their image as well but just thinking about the money they put into these brands or companies immediately assures you that they will be almost “forced” to do a good job.
These Hollywood’s bosses have created an image of their brands by staying truth to them over the years or, like some new bosses do, impress by smart investments in start-up companies that rise really fast and develop before you even hear about them. This is what a true entrepreneur does. Sees the opportunity, waits until it’s best to invest and promotes the services like a true star.
It is a common thing for celebrities to invest in clothing lines and fragrances, celebrities like Jessica Simpson and Kim Kardashian, but it is truly admirable when you find out about the true leaders in Hollywood that choose to remain as silent as they can about their business ventures and empires built on hard and smart work.
Start from scratch
Some have it, others don’t and eventually fail. And it’s not necessarily to be born among wealthy people to learn the drill. Many have started from scratch, making an empire out of their name and still remained humble like Oprah, Gisele Bundchen and Jay Z. These are the people who should inspire us and who should we look up to, as both artist as well as entrepreneurs.
