Where Does Your Affiliate Salary Rank Among Big Stars?
More of a motivational post than anything else… but where do you and your affiliate earnings rank among some of Hollywood’s elite? For those of us fortunate enough to be able to make a living online, we have a lot more in common with celebrities than you might think. Like celebrities, we are our own company… without the celebrity, there is nothing to their name, likewise, without yourself to run your business… there is no business.
Here are just a few of the top earners last year in Entertainment.
Miley Cyrus, 15, Singer/Actress, Los Angeles $18.2 million
Katherine Heigl, Actress, Los Angeles, $11 million
Jessica Alba, Actress, Los Angeles, $9 million
Dr. Phil McGraw, 57, TV host, Los Angeles, $90 million
Steven Spielberg, 61, Movie director, Los Angeles, $110 million
Ryan Seacrest, 33, TV/radio host, Los Angeles, $12 million
Mariska Hargitay, 44, Actress, Los Angeles, $7 million
Trouble, 8, Leona Helmsleyâ€™s dog, Sarasota, $12 million
Tiger Woods, 32, golfer, Orlando, $115 million
Jeff Foxworthy, 49, Comedian, Atlanta, $10 million
Oprah Winfrey, 54, TV personality, Chicago, $260 million
Mary-Kate Olsen, 21, Actress/entrepreneur, New York, $17 million
Gisele Bundchen, 27, Model, New York, $33 million
Scarlett Johansson, 23, Actress, New York, $5 million
Eli Manning, 27, NY Giants quarterback, New York, $11.5 million
50 Cent, 32, Rapper, New York, $33 million
Carrie Underwood, 25, Singer, Nashville, $7 million
While some of the names on the list like Oprah Winfrey and Tiger Woods, earn over $100 million a year… there are many names on the list earning under $10 million a year. I’m sure $10 million dollars is more than plenty for most of us, but numbers like that (and above) are being earned by some of the “elite super affiliates” in the world! Try not to take this post too seriously, and take it more as a just a little kick in the butt to get yourself motivated again and to earn those big bucks! 🙂
