You’re probably thinking that I am some sort of narcissist writing about my own net worth in third person. It’s quite the contrary. I was looking through the search traffic for my blog, and I noticed that I have a lot of type-in traffic where users are simply searching my name. Surprisingly, the top related search keyword in google is “syed balkhi net worth”.
This also explains the recent spike in emails from people asking how much money I make which gets annoying, so I’m hoping this post will also serve as a canned response.
Collectively my software is used by nearly 20 million websites and help power over $1 billion in creator earnings each year.
Combine that with my offline businesses and investments, I have everything that I need to live a comfortable life with my wife and family for years to come.
So what is my current net worth? What was my net worth two years ago? or what will be my net worth in five years from now?
I used to ask these questions myself and get really anxious. I would compare my net worth with others and try to create competitions in my head until I realized that these questions are meaningless.
Things change all the time.
Knowing someone’s net worth is NOT going to help you succeed.
However understanding the metrics you use to judge your own net worth will help you set smarter goals which as a result will help you succeed.
I’ve been told by many that “it’s easy to say when you are rich”.
But in reality, we were a happy family when we had little in our bank account, and we’re a happy family now – and for me that’s the most important metric!
At this time, you’re probably thinking that I’m trying to avoid the question: what is Syed Balkhi’s net worth? and to be honest Yes I am.
I’ve always hated income reports because I don’t think they’re productive. They also tend to attract the wrong crowd, in my opinion. And until one of my companies go public, I’ve no interest in sharing any of the finance details that I don’t have to.
If you continue to follow what I have to say based on the merit of my work that I have done, then I appreciate having you, and I look forward to adding tremendous value to your life and business with the lessons that I learn.
If you were here only to learn about my net worth from Google, I’m pretty sure you’re disappointed by not seeing a traditional $$$ value listed here.
