Henry Cavill Net Worth (2022 Update): The Success Made Of Steel
Known for his red cape and intense fight scenes, British actor Henry Cavill has become one of the most famous actors today. With a net worth of $ 40 million and various important roles, you can be sure that he’s the one who could save the day.
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?
