Cinema became a secondary occupation for the actor. Adam has thrown his strength on business development. In 2011, he founded the company James Banks Design, which produceS stylish jewellery.

In 2013, Shulman made a significant contribution to charity. His company created modern, handcrafted jewellery for the World of Children Award. There was an event, and all the revenue from pendants and bracelets sold went to charity. He wanted to make his work meaningful and explained:
“We wanted, when people wore it, for it to look like a piece on its own, but the closer you get, you say ‘What is that?’ It incorporates children, worlds. It looks like a flower blooming, but up closer it’s another thing. The concept of the key is, you put a key in, and it unlocks. The key itself can’t work on its own; you need people — it’s a group effort. That’s what’s so beautiful about this organisation, it’s not just one person.”

What is Adam Shulman and Ann Hathaway love story?
It all began in 2008 at the Palm Springs Film Festival, just several months after Hathaway split from Raffaello Follieri. It was their mutual friend who contributed to their meeting. The actress’ impressions from her new acquaintance were as follows:
“I think he thought I was a little nuts, which I am a bit, but I’m also nice. [...] I’ve never really talked about this, but I was just very honest with him. I knew from the second I met him that he was the love of my life.”
A woman was totally right. Who knows, maybe it was a sign of fate or mysterious female intuition, but four years later in September 2012 the couple officially became a husband and a wife. Their solemn ceremony took place in a private surrounding. It is believed that 180 guests were invited. Designer Valentino Garavani revealed That he designed Hathaway's dress, and the wedding was planned by Yifat Oren and Stefanie Cove.
However, Shulman was jokingly accused of ruining Ann’s plans. She commented remembering their meeting:
"I am very much in love with him. But you do need to keep your private life private. Adam totally ruined my plan. I was really actually looking forward to a little alone time, and then I fell in love like a fool!"
The actress was eventually pleased to get to know Adam closer. She commented in the interview the premiere of her new movie, Rachel Getting Married:
"I happened to meet a sexy guy the other day. You know when you don’t know someone very well, you meet them, and you’re like, ‘Wow, you really have it going on’?”
Some people say that love is when you want to be better. In the interview for ELLE in 2017, Ann said beautiful things about her husband:
“He changed my ability to be in the world comfortably. I think the accepted narrative now is that we, as women, don’t need anybody. But I need my husband. His unique and specific love has changed me.”
The happy family life moved on, and during a roundtable of Oscar nominees for Best Actress in 2012, Ann mentioned:
“I'm the only one here who's not a mother. I hope to join the ranks soon. I'm thinking about that [the paparazzi] because I really want to have a baby, and my husband and I are like, 'Where are we gonna live?'”
Later in 2013, in the interview for Vogue, she cued one more time:
“Oh, my God. I want to be a mother, and I anticipate loving my children quite fiercely. I think about it all the time, though it’s a silly thing to think about because the kind of mother I’ll be, depends on the kind of children I have. I can’t wait to meet them.”
At that time, many journalists took it as a prompt that the actress was pregnant and Adam was going to become a happy father. So indeed, in some time on March 24, 2016, in Los Angeles Ann gave birth to Jonathan Rosebanks Shulman.
Today, the couple stays together, busy with a very responsible task: bringing up their son.
Adam Shulman is not only an actor but also a businessman, a charity man, a husband to a gorgeous woman, and after all, a happy father. There is nothing tragic or dramatic in his life story, but it still attracts people.
