A lot of people seem to think that, once an actor or musician or model, or anyone in the entertainment industry for that matter, come to the end of their run in the entertainment world, then tthey just vanish off the scene and have to go back to reality and get a regular job like the rest of us.
However, with a little bit of common sense, a good idea and a bit of business savvy, these people can go on to make a good living in other areas. Just look at Josie Maran, for example. Josie is an American model and actress but, rather than just relying on her career in the entertainment industry, she turned her hand to something else.
Over the years, Josie has worked with some big names, appearing in some big films, with the likes of Wentworth Miller and Leonardo DiCaprio. Josie realised that this was not going to last forever and decided to start up her own natural cosmetic product line, which has proven very successful.
Josie Maran started the business in 2007 and now, six years later, it is bigger than ever, with stars all around the world using her products and swearing by them. Proof that there is life beyond the entertainment industry.
