10 Celebrities Who Opened Their Own Small Businesses



                              post-feature-image

 Many celebrities and actors have passions and interests outside of acting. Some of them have started their own businesses on the side. Let’s be honest, most of them have enough money to do whatever they want for the rest of their lives, so they might as well start their own dream business with their riches. People from all walks of life start small businesses, but not everyone can make their businesses as fancy or exactly as they dreamed them. Obviously that reality doesn’t apply to rich and famous actors. As a result, actors often start some of the most interesting and different businesses out there. From internet startups to family restaurants, these celebrities have made their dreams a reality. Some of them keep their side businesses on the down low, while others use their fame to promote their businesses. Some of the businesses are simply personal dream businesses for the actors who started them, and others are charitable organizations that help important causes in the world.

 





  Kevin Smith bought a comic book shop in New Jersey in 1997 and renamed it Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash. It is a collectible comic book shop, and it has a museum of stuff from some of Kevin Smith’s movies. Not content to simply own a comic book shop, Kevin Smith made a TV show about it called Comic Book Men, which is a reality show about the employees and customers of the show. Interestingly, Kevin Smith doesn’t actually work in the show on a daily basis. Instead, he has a team of employees, who tell him stories about the day to day happennings of the shop on the TV show.


9. Edward Norton Started A Crowdfunding Website For Charities

CrowdRise is a crowdfunding program started by Edward Norton and Shauna Robertson in 2010. It works like other crowdfunding programs like Kickstarter and Indiegogo, except that all the projects on the site are for charities. Causes on the site range from community organizations to personal causes. The site has raised money for countless organizations and causes, and it does so with a bit of flair and fun. The slogan under the main logo on the website even says “If you don’t give back no one will like you.” It’s nice to see a charity funding platform with a healthy sense of humor. Maybe Edward Norton isn’t so much of a jerk after all.
8. Steve Carell Owns A General Store

                             
Steve Carell owns a store called the Marshfield Hills General Store in Marshfield, Massachusetts. He bought the store in 2009 to preserve it as a cultural landmark. Carell believes that community gathering places like the general store are disappearing, and he wanted to keep one afloat. The store’s website is somewhat bare, but it seems more like a store that needs to be visited in person, anyway. It would be nice to think that if you visited the Marshfield Hills General Store, you’d find Steve Carell there hanging out, having a cup of coffee with a few regulars. It’s probably more likely that he runs his store from afar, and lets his employees handle the day to day business. 
 7. Clint Eastwood Owns A Ranch Hotel

Now guests can come and stay at the ranch and enjoy beautiful views and a unique piece of California history. Fun fact: Eastwood took a turn as a politician in the 80s when he served as the mayor of the city of Carmel from 1986 to 1988.

You might remember Donnie from his run in New Kids On The Block. Paul is the chef and mastermind of the operation. Just like Kevin Smith, Marky Mark decided that he needed a television show to chronicle the goings-on of his new business. The trio have opened several additional Wahlburgers locations in Toronto, Las Vegas, Philadelphia, and New York City. If you live in one of those cities or you plan to visit, you can check out the restaurant for yourself to see what all the hype is about.

Bullock’s sister Gesine created some of the menu items at Walton’s. The store is an Austin favorite with many loyal customers. She is very passionate about her business and stops in frequently. In a 2013 interview with Vanity Fair, Bullock said that when she is acting she feels like a small piece in a giant corporate mechanism, but in the store she has creative control.

1. Heath Ledger’s Friend Started A Restaurant In His Honor
                             
Before his death, Heath Ledger had planned a cafe called Five Leaves. His friend and business partner Jud Mongell brought the plans to life with funding from Ledger’s estate in 2008. Today Five Leaves is a comfortable and inexpensive brunch spot that is a great place to spend a morning with friends. The whole cafe has a nautical theme, and is shaped like a ship’s prow. It is still going strong today, which is a testament to Ledger’s vision and Mongell’s business prowess. If it is too busy during the brunch hour, you can always try the dinner menu in the evening.

Top 10 Most Luxurious Cell Phones Ever Made

                              post-feature-image


How much money do you think a cell phone should go for? The answer to that question will vary from one individual to another, but one thing we can all agree is that a cell phone has got to be worth what it is going for in stores or online. Today, a basic phone ought to be able to make a call, send out a text, take a clear picture, and access the Internet, functions that almost all the phones in the market today can execute.
One common trait among most of the extremely rich people is that they usually spend a lot of money on items that they could spend less on, just because they can. An extremely rich person will likely buy a product in the most luxurious shops in town, or even fly halfway across the world to purchase a particular product just because it is a designer. The extremely rich like to be in a class of their own and the size of their wallets or bank accounts allow them to live comfortably in that class.
With the above in mind, some people have developed ridiculously expensive cell phones that the average person could never afford; simply because they know that a rich person somewhere will want to be one among very few people in the world to own such a phone. Most of these phones do not have the amazing features that some other affordable phones in the market have, but just because they are designed for the rich, you will hardly ever find any of these on a shelf.
Here are the world’s most luxurious cell phones ever made. Would you buy any one of these?
