Rise of the Entrepreneur – Episode 46 with Brian Warner

Brian Warner

Brian Warner is the founder and managing editor of

In 2009 Brian founded, with a simple idea that there should be a place where you could go to find how much an individual celebrity is worth online. What started out with a long and in-depth summary of how much Adam Sandler was worth, quickly turned into much more. Jump ahead a few years and the site now has over 20,000 celebrities listed and is one of the most visited sites on the internet.

When first starting out the site, Brian knew there was a massive demand for celebrity net worth information online, but it was simply a matter of figuring out how to best compile all of the information. After having the first page for Adam Sandler created, the process quickly became more familiar and easier to compile for each celebrity. Today the site now has thousands of celebrities on their list, and continually rank at the top of Google or nearly any celebrity “net worth” search out there.

However, all good things must come to an end when Google is in control of content. Organic reach and traffic to has been on a decline as of lately, with Google using the site’s information and showing results through it’s Knowledge Panel and right at the top of the search results, versus letting users simply click over to the site.
