The Modern Family star, Sofia Vergara has topped the Forbes highest paid TV actresses list for the sixth time in a row.
A quarter of her $41.5 million income comes from her comedy series, Modern Family. The actress knows business well and the rest of the income is earned from endorsements deals from various brands.
Pepsi and Head & Shoulders lie among the various brands. Although, she has made slightly less than last year, but still has a gap of $15 million from the second position held by Kaley Cuoco.
Vergara’s work is often aimed towards empowerment. Though, she got down in the business field in 1994. Where she found out that there weren’t many agents representing Hispanics in the entertainment industry, so she wanted to create a platform.
After tireless efforts and sleepless nights, she launched a talent firm, Latin World Entertainment with co-founder Luis Balaguer. Now, LWE, based in Los Angeles represents some of the biggest names in Spanish TV and has expanded into licensing and marketing.
Her latest work is an underwear subscription service, called EBY. Ten percent of net sales goes towards microfinance loans for female entrepreneurs.
Renata Black, who is the co-founder of EBY with Vergara, said that Vergara does her research carefully before making an investment.
Vergara also conducted months long research before she decided to be a part of EBY. Likewise, she is involved in all kinds of business.
Another one of her recent venture is Raze, a digital media company focused on Latino. Vergara started it with Balaguer and Emiliano Calemzuk . Emiliano is also the former president for Fox Television Studios.
