Jeff Bezos' Net Worth Reached $94,6 Billion, Making Him The World's Richest Man

Wondering who’s the richest person on the planet? Since the end of October 2017, that is Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon.

Earlier this year, in July, Forbes, the publication famous for tracking billionaires and their net worth in real time, announced this:

‘Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has overtaken Bill Gates and is now the richest person in the world, with a fortune topping $90 billion for the first time ever.

When markets opened on Thursday, Bezos had a net worth of $90.6 billion, putting him $500 million ahead of Microsoft founder Bill Gates. Amazon stock opened up 1.6% on Thursday, adding $1.4 billion to Bezos’ net worth. That was enough to put him ahead of Gates.’

And while Gates got his number 1 position back, here’s what happened in the end of October:

On that Friday morning, October 27th, there was an 8% spike in Amazon stock, adding $7 billion to the net worth of its founder.

However, Microsoft also saw a spike of 7% overnight, so it remained in the first position.

But later this morning Amazon stocks jumped again, which added $900 million to Bezos’ fortune and made him the richest person in the world.

Here’s some stats about Amazon, provided by CNBC.

Currently, his net worth is $94,6 billion.

The battle between Bezos and Gates for the first position has been there for a long time.

It’s called Warrior Woman, and guess what? I’m one of them.

In fact, that was the first ever virtual summit I’ve agreed to be part of and it was great sharing what works for me and what keeps me motivated and productive during the day, especially when things aren’t exactly the way I want them to be.

Let me share more about it.

Who’s Hosting Warrior Woman and What Inspired Its Creation?

That’s Anna Acuña – a fierce woman living life on her own terms!

As the creator of Wild & Free, she encourages purpose-driven men and women to pursue their passions and create a life that sets their soul on fire!

At first, Anna didn’t believe a life on her own terms was possible either. But her artistic, creative and adventurous spirit craved so much more than that!

She wanted a life full of adventure. To have complete control over her time. So she decided to trust her inner compass, break free of the norm, and start doing the things that got her fired up in life!

Like me, she understands what it’s like to wonder if the life you imagine is possible.

Which is exactly why I want you to join us for the interview series Anna’s hosting about this topic. So, you can gain the FOCUS, ENERGY, and INSPIRATION you need to break free of the norm and start living life on your own terms!

How Can Warrior Woman 2018 Help You?

The best thing about it is that you can listen to more than 22 women who are already independent and doing what they love. They talk about how their days go, what challenges they overcame and what they are still struggling with, how they find courage in the face of adversity, how they broke free from the 9 to 5, and what their best advice for newbies is.

I, for instance, talked for 30 minutes on the most important things that allowed me to start making money from my passion, and how this grew over time to make me location independent. I also share my best productivity principles and what keeps me on top of my game every day. Which is key to not just living the lifestyle you desire, but also keeping it.
