15 Celebrities With Multi-Million Dollar Side Hustles
Celebrities are most often trained and skilled in one area of expertise. Whether it be singing, acting, or another form of talent, they skyrocket to fame as a direct result of their exceptional skill in one particular field. Many of them go on to accept high-paying endorsement deals, and get paid well to become the face of another brand. However, other celebrities have a knack for business and develop secondary businesses that are all their own. Business Insider reports that there are quite a few celebrities out there that follow their passion and create multi-million dollar side hustles, and add incredible wealth to their already astronomical fortunes.
15 Kylie Jenner
Kylie Jenner is perhaps among the most notorious for her multi-million cosmetics line, Kylie Cosmetics. It was this line of beauty products that catapulted Jenner from being a millionaire to achieving billionaire status. Kylie Cosmetics products fly off the shelves far faster than they can be restocked, and have quickly become Kylie Jenner’s main income stream. Kylie Cosmetics has quickly become a leader in the world of beauty brands, and certainly dominates the celebrity beauty brands.
