George Clooneys Net Worth
But How Did He Make His Money?

The one thing that’s well-known about ultra high net worth individuals (UHNWs) – the folks worth at least $30 million USD – is that virtually ALL of them have some part of their fortune in real estate.

Many of the more famous rich people and “celebrity entrepreneurs” actually got their start in real estate. And that’s great for them! Not so much for us…

See, more millionaires are created during recessions than any other part of the economic cycle. Which is cool, except the last real recession was 2008, when real estate prices were in the tank and you could buy a whole neighborhood with $100,000.

Now, though, real estate prices are through the roof, and interest rates are skyrocketing too. So how does the everyday person start building a massive net worth in an economy like this one?

Have you considered Digital Real Estate?

The internet’s been around for decades, but the possibility of actually owning high-value pieces of property ON the internet is fairly new.

In other words, it’s a wide open playing field…but it won’t stay that way forever.

Here’s a quick summary of how Digital Real Estate works:

You invest a little money (maybe around $100) to either purchase or build a piece of “land” on the internet.

You specifically place this “land” in a high-traffic area, where lots of people pass through (just like traditional real estate, it’s all about Location, Location, Location).

The folks who pass through your “land” all happen to be looking for a specific product or service, so you “rent” your land to a business owner who happens to offer that product or service.

The business owner pays you $500 to $2,000 a month to “rent” your Digital Real Estate, because it helps them connect with their ideal customers.

Think of it like buying a strip mall, or an office space, just on the internet, for WAAAAYYY less money and headache.

George Clooney was born in Lexington, Kentucky. His parents are Nina Bruce, a beauty queen and city councilwoman, and Nick Clooney, a former anchorman, and TV host.

George Clooney is an agnostic, but he was raised as a Roman Catholic when he was a kid. After finishing school at Blessed Sacrament School in Fort Mitchell, Kentucky, his family moved to Mason, Ohio.

When his family moved back to Kentucky, George Clooney got Bell’s Palsy, making part of his face weak. This happened when he was in the seventh grade, and even though it went away after a year, George Clooney still didn’t avoid getting bullied.

He loved to play basketball and basement games. He tried out for the Cincinnati Reds after high school but he didn’t make the team. From 1979 to 1981, he went to Northern Kentucky University to study broadcast journalism, but he didn’t finish.


George Clooney Career Highlights

Despite getting born into a family of TV personalities like his father, Nick Clooney, and aunt, Rosemary Clooney, George Clooney didn’t make it big on the first try.

After moving to Los Angeles, he first lived in his car for a while. Soon, he started getting small parts on TV shows like “The Facts of Life,” “Roseanne,” and “The Golden Girls.”

His first big role was on the sitcom “E/R” in 1984, and no, this is not the role that made him a star, as Dr. Doug Ross on the NBC drama “ER,” which began later in 1994.

He also appeared in one episode of “Golden Girls” in 1987 as police officer Bobby Hopkins.

After George Clooney left “ER” in 1999, he had a string of box office hits, with “Ocean’s 11” with Brad Pitt, being his most popular to date. In 2000, he was also in “The Perfect Storm” and “O’ Brother, Where Art Thou?”

In 2002, George Clooney made his directorial debut with “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind” where he also starred as Jim Byrd.

George Clooney later played the same character in “Ocean’s 12” and “Ocean’s 13.” He was also in the 2005 movie “Syriana,” for which he won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.

In the same year, he was also nominated for writing and directing “Good Night, and Good Luck,” making George Clooney the only person in the Academy Awards history to have been nominated for six awards.

In 2021, George Clooney came back as a director of the drama movie “The Tender Bar” starring Ben Affleck.
