Arianna Huffington net worth: Arianna Huffington is best known for being the co-founder and editor-in-chief for HuffPost and has an estimated net worth of $63 million dollars.
Huffington was born in Athens, moved to England when she was a teenager, and then to the United States when she was 30. Her last name comes from former congressman Michael Huffington, who Arianna was married to for 11 years before filing for divorce.
Huffington has also written 13 books, been a staple in news and media outlets, done her fair share of public speaking, and is considered one of the most powerful women in all of media. Ditto the world. In terms of influence, Huffington holds her own with former First Ladies and media moguls alike.
A large portion of her net worth, of course, came in 2011 when AOL bought The Huffington Post for a whopping $315 million. Arianna’s cut was roughly $21 million dollars, of which $3.4 million came in the form of equity grants. (Not bad considering the website was hardly turning a profit at that point.) After the sale, Arianna hung around for five years, acting as the president and editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post Media Group.
In mid-2016, Huffington severed ties with HuffPost to focus exclusively on her newest health and wellness venture – Thrive Global. There, Arianna monetizes a rapidly-growing readership with an assortment of nutrition, skincare, and tech products, as well as e-courses and apps.
If you’re a columnist or just a hustler with something to say, let Arianna’s story inspire you to keep pecking that keyboard. I do. And hell, who knows, maybe you’ll see Millyuns selling for nine figures one day. Anyways.
