Being famous is a full time job, but these busy bees have made the choice to fill their schedules with even more work! Several actors, musicians, reality stars, models, and athletes have side businesses. Some of these celebrities who own companies are interested in start-up ventures, while others own modest general stores. A few celebrities who own businesses even use their side jobs to raise money for charity.
