Jessica made to cover of Forbes magazine – America’s Richest Self-Made Women with a fortune about 200 million dollars, and none of it came from acting. She became, among other things, a business woman when she co-funded The Honest Company back in 2012.

And today that company is worth $1 billion, with her share of 15-20 %. The company is all about natural baby products without harmful chemicals. It all started in 2008. when she was pregnant with her first child. At the baby showering she got products that gave her allergic reaction.

She started investigating and realized that all mainstream products were full of chemicals and plastic. So in 2012 they founded The Honest Company – an eco-friendly baby line and it was a hit. Company kept growing, and now in 2015 it is worth $1 billion, and it is still going in the same direction. Their main product are all natural eco-friendly dippers, and other popular products are diaper bags, sunscreen and hypoallergenic laundry detergent.

Oprah, Madonna, Beyoncé and Judge Judy are only other women who made to Forbes list but they all did by working in their own field – media and music. And Jessica did it at very young age far from her field of work. Now she has just came back from Asia where she negotiate about getting on eastern market also. Looks like she has been destined to succeed and whether that field is acting, business or something third is irrelevant.


And just add a fact that she is the most beautiful women in the world (by many sources and lists). I guess that in some cases beauty and intelligence goes together.
