Celebrities! They are just like us. But not really! Celebrity culture has been a part of our society way before moving pictures were a thing. This group of people found success early in their lives, and that meant a whole boatload of fame and money! Some haven’t been too smart on handling their income, but there are a few who have cracked the secret in making their money work for them. Here are nine celebrities you can emulate:
1. Chuck Norris has cash cows in many industries
American legend Chuck Norris started his career by being a martial arts teacher to celebrities. Then, his friend, Bruce Lee, another legendary martial artist, asked him to star in his film as a villain. After that, Chuck Norris became a household name after Breaker! Breaker!, which he credited Steve McQueen as someone who inspired him to take acting seriously.
But what most people don’t know about Chuck Norris is that he has many cash cows in different industries. If you want interesting Chuck Norris facts, here are two that are utterly mind blowing: first, the man is a New York Times best-selling author – two of his books, in fact: The Secret of Inner Strength: My Story was a success, and Black Belt Patriotism: How To Reawaken America where he documents his advice on becoming a better person for your nation; the other one is that he is an air policeman!
2. Self-made billionaire Kylie Jenner is not really a billionaire
The world was abuzz when Kylie Jenner made the Forbes list of the youngest billionaires in March 2019. But a few months later, this was rescinded by the magazine, citing that the papers sent in by Jenner’s team were doctored and falsified. Although the young mogul is still very rich, she’s off the billionaire’s list for now.
3. Oprah is the first African-American woman billionaire
Speaking of women billionaires, Oprah Winfrey is the first African-American woman to become a billionaire. The television host has had one of the longest-spanning careers on TV, and the money that she earned on the years of her being a talk show host has paved the way for her to establish her own brand. She owns several media companies, including publications, and she is the owner and CEO of her own network.
4. Supermodel Gisele Bundchen owns her own skincare company, among other things
One of the most obvious things that many celebrities do when they go into business is that they always relate their business to the specific industry they were heavily working with prior to building it. Take for example supermodel Gisele Bundchen; she is not only a successful entrepreneur, but she also made it possible for a runway model to build her own empire through a skincare line.
5. Jessica Alba is the blueprint to many new, up-and-coming celebrity CEO’s
Jessica Alba’s fame was partly because of her stint in Fantastic Four and getting the lead on a network television show, but the young millionaire didn’t stop just being a celebrity when it was her heyday. Most celebrities that turned into business moguls chose the business side of things after they weren’t “in demand” anymore, but not Alba.
She started her baby products line while she was at the top of her game, making her a blueprint for younger celebrities to be smarter with their money. In 2016, Alba was estimated to be worth over 300 million dollars.
6. Dr. Dre built an empire on Beats alone
Dr. Dre is not an actual doctor, but the rapper has made a fortune more than any doctor could do by creating audio and tech products for the emerging technologically savvy market. And it worked! With his knowledge as an audio engineer, Dr. Dre co-engineered Beats by Dre, a consumer audio product that has now become an Apple-owned organization.
7. Gloria Estefan partly owns Miami Dolphins
Millennials may not know who Gloria Estefan is, but the Latina diva is one of the original divas alongside Mariah Carey and Celine Dion. With hits like “Conga,” “Rhythm Is Gonna Get You,” “Get On Your Feet”, and many more, Gloria Estefan was a household name in the early ’90s. But the diva is very enterprising, and what most people don’t know is that she partly owns Miami Dolphins!
Aside from that, the diva and her husband also own several restaurant chains in Miami and Orlando. Estefan is also part of the Univision board, which makes her total worth between 500-700 million.
8. Ashton Kutcher has his hands on several tech investments
The tech industry is one industry that peaked in the past ten years. Consumer tech products are the future, and in fact, the most powerful companies in the world today are tech companies. Apple, Google, Facebook, etc. are some of the biggest names in tech. And these companies rack up billions of income year on year.
Investing in tech industries is not only a great prospect, but it might also prove to be one of the smartest choices you’ll ever make in your life. Ashton Kutcher, for example, has his fingers dipped on several tech investments. His company, A-Grade Investments, financed startups like Uber when it was in conception.
9. Reese Witherspoon owns several media companies
Reese Witherspoon of Legally Blonde proves to be the same person who her character was – smart and enterprising. The actress not only has several media companies; she also co-owns most of them. Her latest venture is a woman-driven company that focuses on stories about women by women! You go, Elle Woods!
