My Work Story
Like many good ideas, the genesis of What’sTheirNetWorth.com began in childhood. While I was growing up, both my parents worked in show business. My mom was a make-up artist, while my dad was an entertainment lawyer. This meant that my home was often visited by athletes, actors, musicians, and other individuals that I had previously only ever seen on TV. Don’t worry, I am fully aware of just how privileged I was to enjoy such an upbringing!
Finance may sound like a pretty strange leap from the glitz and glamour of dealing with celebrities, but let me explain! One of the biggest things that fascinated me was the rich and famous lifestyle – especially just how wealthy they were. That wasn’t a matter of materialism. I was just engrossed by the rags-to-riches stories that so many people seemed to have – how they went from having nothing to being hugely rich and sometimes back again.
I was also impressed and enthralled by how these superstars retained and grew their net worth. After all, fame is fickle. In many respects, getting rich is the easy part – staying that way proves challenging to so many people, especially when we become accustomed to a certain luxurious lifestyle. This ensured that I was just as fascinated by tales of financial hardship and mounting debts for these individuals. How could somebody so famous be so broke? Sorry, no names here – just be aware that some of the people I’m referring to may surprise you!
I decided to study finance to truly understand how people in the public eye make and manage their money. Throughout my time in college, and whenever I tell people what I do for a living, I find that I’m not the only person who finds this topic fascinating. We are all engrossed – and let’s be honest, a little dazzled – by the world of celebrity and fame. Wealth is just one of the trappings of this.
So, that’s my origin story – and by extension, the tale behind What’s Their Net Worth. This site is dedicated to explaining the value of people in the public eye and just their net worth. I update the site regularly to ensure that the information is as accurate as possible, based upon constant scouring of news reports and public information.
