At some point in their artistic careers, these celebs looked at their fame, fortune, and professional achievements and decided to change their path. Most of them left acting and singing behind to discover the things they wanted to do. Now all of them are successful businesswomen that do not wait for the approbation of their music labels or agents, but instead, they are now their boss.
Rihanna is one of the best-selling female artists of all time. She has accumulated her superstar status from releasing hit after hit. According to Billboard, her No. 1 song is "We Found Love," featuring Calvin Harris. In recent years she has used her power to branch out of music, proving that she is not only one of the biggest stars on earth, but she is also capable of making a precious brand. Rihanna has been busy developing her make up line Fenty Beauty which collects the best of the best in beauty, offering products for all skin types and tones.
She also has her lingerie brand called Savage X Fenty, that focus on women of all shapes and sizes, which has been pretty successful and expected to be worth $ 325 billion of USD by 2025. According to The Sun diary, Rihanna recently registered a new brand named "Buff Ryder," which will be a line of skincare products, a new division for Fenty Cosmetics.
With Rihanna being such a powerhouse, it's hard to imagine a world without her music. She is now mainly focused on her full filling life as an entrepreneur.
2. Cameron Diaz
The main cast of the raunchy 2002 cult classic, 'The Sweetest Thing', Cameron Diaz, Selma Blair, and Christina Applegate reunited in 2018 for an Entertainment Weekly profile. When asked if the actresses ever hung out, Diaz said she'd like to and that she had the time, off-handedly nothing that she's currently quote "literally doing nothing," then adding that she's "actually retired." A few weeks earlier, Blair claimed to Metro that since appearing in the remake of Annie in 2014 and marrying Good Charlotte guitarist Benji Madden in 2015, Diaz had quietly quit Hollywood.
According to Selma Blair, "Cameron's retired from acting. I mean, she doesn't need to make any more films, she has a pretty great life, I don't know what it would take to bring her back, she's happy". Recently, Cameron Diaz and Katherine Power have launched their own clean wine brand Avaline. She is living a peaceful life with her husband and their new baby girl Raddix, born at the very end of 2019.
3. The Olsen Twins
Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, who would come to be known as the Olsen twins at the tender age of 6 months, landed the role of Michelle Tanner for the ABC sitcom Full House. As identical twins playing the part together, the production could get twice as much filming time with the character becoming stars before they could walk or talk. From 1992, the tow had already begun to branch out into films; they even had a dedicated fan club called 'The Fun Club'.
They weren't 18 yet when they were already building their empire. From 2004 onward, the twins stopped acting together, and both only would take on a handful of minor roles before they officially retired from acting in 2012. Instead, they decided to focus on business and fashion. Because of the incredible success of their combined personal brand "Mary-Kate and Ashley: Real fashion for real girls", quickly what started as a style and cosmetic brand for teens evolved into something more mature and high end. Nowadays, they are known as fashion icons.
All these celebrities worked their way from the ground up and made things happen. As well as they were given a chance to succeed in the entertainment industry, now they are the ones creating new opportunities for themselves. You know what they say: you have to be a visionary if you want to succeed in business. Like this woman, you can also take your life into your own hands and make your dreams real.
