How did Sharapova get into the business world?

Sharapova, too, wanted to do that. However, instead of making an impulsive decision, she approached her favorite skincare brand, Supergoop. She followed the working of the brand for a few months and then finally invested her money in it. Consequently, after all these years, the brand evaluation of Supergoop has gone to a whopping $750 million.
