I've also been dying to get the answer to this question... Can anyone on WSO help?

Not prestigious at all. He's a fraud. His house is leased (I was a broker in LA) and people who know him all know he's all flash. He DOES make a lot of money because he has to pay that lease and all the car leases etc. But he spends a lot to keep it up- so his net income is very low if not outright 0.

Two ways to look at it:

  1. He does live a pretty cool life. He's in Beverly Hills with a Lambo and IG models around him. His revenue has to pretty high to afford that.
  2. His life is leased and he pretty much has no tangible assets that anyone I've met is aware of. He is definitely far less successful than he makes himself out to be.

Anyone selling you 'books' on how to get rich definitely are faking it till they make it, that's literally their idea.

Idk how I would feasibly value his company without him in it. I would assume that is the bulk of/ all of his net worth. Maybe someone else on WSO knows how to do this.

He does interview with cool people no doubt. But I don't exactly buy into that as a form of credibility.

I personally think of him as a bottom feeder. His life seems empty and unfulfilling. Have you ever seen/ heard of Death of a Salesman? Maybe I'm jaded against fraudsters, who knows?

What are the sources on the income and marketing spend? Not saying you're wrong, but people like this benefit from spreading misinformation about themselves...

Something tells me that the $500MM on youtube ads is a lie. Who would do that? There is literally so little ROI on that.

Sounds like he's doing it wrong. If you need to keep earning income then you're not rich, period. To me, being rich is being free of the worry of having to make money. Having assets and not needing to ever work (even though many choose to anyway).

No he is not prestigious.

Prestigious people do not drive 448s, 488s, and Huracans. They drive Enzos and LaFerraris.
(Assuming they are into spending their money on sports cars)

It is not about how much you spend to gain "clout", what school you went to. It is your actions. Warren, Bill, Even Elon do not really care about the amount sitting in their bank account. Warren said he still lives his life like he did when he was making $200,000. Bill says after a few million it is all the same.
When you have so much money that everybody knows you have it; you reach what I would call prestige.

Let Forbes billionaire edition do the talking not the house you live in, or the car you drive.

I'll leave you with a quote from Rae Shremmurd.
"When the money talks what is there to say"

Lol your fanboying over this YouTuber is weirding me out

Tai Lopez is a disease, selling a dream with no substance, same shit that frauds have sold forever ... the problem is there are people ignorant enough to think the snake oil is real .... a complete hypocrite.... the opposite of the great Robin Hood, "steal from the poor and give to .... me"

Completely agree. Unfortunate how RE gets a bad rep because of guys like this. His fan base is pretty devout to him, it's ridiculous.

No one in real estate gets a bad rep because of Tai Lopez. Anyone over the age of 35 doesn't even know who he is.

Jan 29, 2019

I disagree. Having people like him in the world means it is easier to identify the idiots and wannabe grifters out there - just stay as far away as possible from anyone who expresses admiration for him. Otherwise you might have to find out the hard way.

Man gives too much unsolicited advice. I'm watching a YouTube video and this loser pops up telling me what I should do with my life.

On a serious note....

Why is it always the people who have the shittiest lives are the ones offering motivational speeches to me on social media?

Then why is he only worth 4-5 Million?

Jan 28, 2019

Lets say he has been on YT doing this dumb shit for 4 years.

4x365.25x100,000 = 146,100,000-500,000,000 = -353,900,000

Thats a pretty fucking terrible ROI if you ask me.

He dropped out of college. Yeah he has money but I feel like having a degree is kinda the entry level prestige thing, and he doesn't even have that.

Dayman?

I'd say that this guy is quite prestigious, he found 11.3 million idiots that follow him (6.2 without double counting across different social media platforms).

Jokes apart, I really doubt that his annual income is $36,5M and it sounds even more suspicious to me that he spent $500M on YT ads. Considering that he has nearly 300M views on his YT channel, this works out at around 1,7 dollar per view, which is quite insane.

Can you do us all a favor and deck him in the face as hard as you can? I promise WSO will start a gofundme and reward you handsomely.
