Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen, Marketing Empire
Anyway, these girls are truly a professional inspiration to any entrepreneur. They created an entire brand around themselves and made sure they got paid handsomely for all their work.
They worked on straight to store brands, first with Walmart, now with J.C. Penny. They had their clothing, footwear, hair care, and cosmetics.
Not to even mention their toy lines through Mattel.
Now they've launched a runway line. All-in-all, they seem to have remained well-rounded, confident and business savvy. That, or they've had amazing people surrounding them from the beginning; I'll split it, and say a little of both. Either way, I'm impressed.
