Most times, the media shove the success of celebrities in our faces. We get to see our favorite celebrities in different outfits each day. We talk about their Limousines, Convoys, Perfumes, Good looks, and Royalties. The media makes our mouths hose from seeing the figures of their net worth. But, let no one deceive you that being a celebrity is all about photo shoots and good looks.
Only few celebrities made their fortune from photoshoots and good looks. Many of them didn’t become wealthy by just appearing on billboards and Hollywood movies, they made their fortune by investing in stocks, gambling, and bonds.
Hence this article brings you three celebrities that made their money through investments.
So Lay back, read, and enjoy!
- Amarillo Slim: Amarillo Slim is one of the greatest gamblers to ever live. He won his first million dollar in 1947, as a 19-year-old. Today, he’s still well known and regarded as the most successful casino player of all time. Amarillo Slim is nobody special and just like him; you too can become a millionaire from playing casinos.
Amarillo was not born with a silver spoon. He was a hustling dude, struggling to make ends meets until he discovered the power of casinos.
Before he became a casino star, he travelled around the world with three of his friends. His first win in the casino world was when he beat Willie Nelson to win $300,000 and Larry Flynt to win $2 million.
Some of his greatest accomplishments was winning the world series of poker championship.
- Warren Buffet: I don’t think any of the top made billionaire’s lists will ever be complete without Warren Buffet – the most famous investor of all time.
He started his investment game when he was just 11-years-old, and before he became 15 years he was already worth $6,000.
Now $6,000 might be a small amount for most of us, but considering the fact he was only 15 years is startling.
Most of his mates at that age are still depending on their parents for money – even if they have some savings, it is money from their college funds or birthday gifts.
- Satoshi Nakomata: If you haven’t heard this name before, then it means you’re living in Mercury. Satoshi Nakomota is one of the first miners of bitcoins. Since he was the first miner of digital currency, he acquired so much bitcoins for himself.
As at 2019, Satoshi net worth is $19.6 billion. Satoshi Nakatoma is dead, but he has beaten the likes of Thomas Peterffy to become the 60th richest man in the world. And worst still, he is more than likely to become the richest man in the world if bitcoins becomes mainstream.
If you want to go into investment, you have to be willing to learns the ropes of it. Don’t just throw in your money and expect some magic to happen. Investment is very risk, and you could lose all your money while learning the hooks and cranks of it.
