Olsen Credits Parents With Building Brand Empire
Actress Ashley Olsen credits her business-savy parents for grooming her and sister MARY-KATE into media moguls - because they let them sneak into meetings at a young age.
The 22-year-olds began filming their first starring roles in U.S. TV series Full House at nine-months-old before launching a media empire with the start of their company Dualstar in 1993.
Ashley says, "There's a very specific language with financing and things like that. We definitely have a different perspective on running a business."
The pair was ranked among the world's richest women in entertainment, earning an estimated $100 million (GBP63.7 million) last year (07), according to Forbes magazine.
