"At the end of drama school, I made a contract with myself: I'd try acting for five years. I was 26. I had already spent eight years working in restaurants and gas stations. So I had seen enough small businesses to understand that that's what acting is: a small business," was once said by Hugh Jackman.
Although at times operating a small business can seem anything but glamorous, many celebrities have started their own. In a wide variety of industries, a growing number of celebrities are cashing in on their charm to become small business owners.
It really doesn't come as a surprise to see famous faces financing companies or brainstorming business opportunities. The mix of wealth, drive, and downtime between projects may provide an ample environment for entrepreneurism.
