How did Tom MacDonald get rich?
Tom MacDonald was able to get rich by developing multiple streams of income from his earnings as a rapper. He makes money from the sale of his albums, his YouTube music videos, the merchandise he sells on his website, and his tours. He also earns royalties when followers stream his music via Spotify. But income is not net worth.
Net worth is equal to the market value of the assets that an individual owns minus the amount of debt the individual owes. As an extreme example, if MacDonald’s only asset was a house he owned in Los Angeles with a market value of $2 million, but the home had a $1.5 million mortgage on it, his net worth would only be half a million, or $500,000, regardless of his income. Many celebrities with high incomes have low, or even negative, net worth due to a phenomenon known as “lifestyle creep,” wherein they get used to spending more than they earn.
