Jessica Alba is making big bucks these days, but not like her acting peers!

Nope. Girlfriend is dabbling in some entrepreneur shiz and she's seriously making a fortune from it!

While Jess is still a working actress in the entertainment industry, she's also focusing on other things.

One of the 34-year-old's priorities, besides her family, is her company, The Honest Company — which led her to become the cover gal for Forbes magazine's America's Richest Self-Made Women issue!

Although the mother of two isn't number one on that list, she does have a hefty $200 million that she's sitting on top of from the company!

Jessica co-founded The Honest Company in 2012 and in just a short amount of time, it's now valued at $1 billion and the actress currently holds a 15 to 20 percent stake in the business.

Jessica revealed she came up with the idea for the company in 2008 when she was pregnant with her first child.

After washing a bunch of onesies she received at her baby shower with some standard detergent, she found herself breaking out and that began the search for something chemical-free that's safe for babies and everyone in the world!

She said:

"I felt like my needs weren't being met as a modern person. I want beautiful design like everybody else. But it shouldn't be premium-priced, and it should, of course, be safe."

And the rest is basically history.

After doing extensive research about chemical free baby products and finding things that were just absurdly priced, the 34-year-old went on to create a blossoming business by making safe and affordable products.

Incredible.
