Whatever career you’re in, it’s important that you keep an eye out for other oppourtunites to facilitate wealth creation. Many of us have more than one thing that we are passionate about and it’s perfectly fine to use one passion to build on the other.

- Shaggy – Cocoyac
Popular international reggae artist Shaggy’s early last year spearheaded the launch of Cocoyac cognac liquor, the international artist who says that he has equity in the drink. Shaggy says the drink, “It’s the first coconut cognac”. I hope to see more from this brand as it takes off.

4. Vybz Kartel – Street Vybz Rum – Daggering Condoms- Teachas Pet
Popular Dancehall artist Vybz Kartel has always pushed the boundaries in entertainment expanding his brand by teaming up to create amazing partnerships. From the infamous Street Vybz Rum to Daggering condoms and a hit reality TV show Vybz Kartel has done it. The brands were later discontinued and the reality show, only lasted for the one season. Kartel used these brands to his advantage, making the brands apart of him you couldn’t think about the brands and not think about the popular deejay and that work tremendously for the brand and the popular entertainer.
