Life is Complicated
He was born on April 11, 1977, so that makes Tai Lopez’ age 40. Lopez loves to talk about how his journey of learning started when he was 16 years old. That is when he realized that life was too complex to figure out on his own. So, he wrote a letter to his grandfather, a scientist and the wisest man he knew, asking for advice. He soon received a letter back which simply read, “There is no secret formula. Tai, the modern world is too complicated. You’ll never the find all the answers from just one person. If you’re lucky, you’ll find a handful of people throughout your life who will point the way.”
Books are a Treasure
One week later, Lopez received a package containing 11 dusty books with a note that said, “Start by reading these.” This started Lopez life long fascination with books and his love for reading. He began reading for his search of what he calls the “good life” —the balance of four major pillars of life: health, wealth, love, and happiness. Lopez found inspiration from scores of important men in history including Sigmund Freud, Aristotle, Gandhi, Charlie Munger, Sam Walton, Descartes, Charles Darwin, and Confucius.
Failure is a Hard Teacher
Tai Lopez also lived in an Amish community for two and half years, spent time working in a leper colony in India, and experimented with grass-fed, sustainable agriculture in Polyface farms. He also tried to be an entrepreneur after dropping out of college, but failed miserably and ended up sleeping on his mother’s couch. Lopez then got five millionaires to mentor him, became a Certified Financial Planner, and worked in finance, before becoming an adviser and mentor to others.
A Cool Net Worth
Lopez has appeared on various TV and radio shows, spoke at top universities like the London Business School and the University of Southern California, and started podcasts containing material called “The Grand Theory of Everything.” Lopez condensed everything he has learned from his mentors into a series of “mentor shortcuts” he calls “The 67 Steps.” Why is Tai Lopez rich? That’s because he applies all of his learning to his business and generates revenue. Tai Lopez’ net worth is a cool $5.0 million and is growing steadily. Lopez’ web site is owned by his partners at MAS Group LLC, where he used to be a manager before stepping down.
