A sampling of Wayne Rogers's business ventures:

Wayne Rogers & Co.
After providing financial advice to fellow actors, Rogers launched this investment firm in 1971.

Delta Pacific Transportation
Rogers, who served in the U.S. Navy before becoming an actor, co-founded this Mississippi barge business in 1977. He later sold the company's 25 barges for scrap, earning about $2 million.

Kleinfeld Bridal
Rogers helped turn around this New York City bridal store after buying it with other investors in 1999. He remains a co-owner of the shop, which generates about $30 million in sales a year.
