15. The Beatles: boutique owners
In 1967, The Beatles launched their own company, Apple (no relation to the iPod manufacturers). One of the offshots was a clothes shop on the corner of Baker Street in London. The shop barely lasted nine months before the band gave away all its stock and closed the thing down. They stuck to music after that.
