Final Words

Ten positions are not enough to include all celebrities who make big money apart from their primary job. This list did not mention Oprah Winfrey, Beyoncé, Shakira, and other stars who make profits on selling products under their names.

However, even though they do have financial opportunities, running a business is just as tricky as it is for any entrepreneur. They may save money on marketing, but they still need to seek a great team, hunt professionals, take risks, and make business development decisions.

Thus, business success is not measured with money but with talent and dedication. Every successful business story includes a great deal of efforts, skills, and knowledge. Do not feel that celebrities have a privilege. They work hard to make their projects great.
