Rich Roll net worth: Rich Roll is an ultra endurance athlete, author, and podcaster with an estimated net worth of $8 million dollars.
Roll was bullied as a kid, but worked his f*cking face off at swimming and school, excelling at both. He got into Stanford, made the swim team, graduated, even made it through Cornell Law School despite booze and drugs becoming his main focus.
At his worst, Rich would start the day with vodka-tonics in the shower, then head to work as a lawyer. From there, he’d keep the buzz goin’ by sneaking drinks throughout the day.
As a result, he found himself alone, in danger of losing his job, and damn-near homeless.
At 31, he decided enough was enough. Entered rehab. Got sober. Worked 80-hour weeks at his law firm. Made good money. Met his wife. Started a family. Bought a sports car. All while staying clean.
Hey, to the outside world, he was a “success.” Right?
Only one problem: he was eating fast food, not working out, felt like ass, 50-pounds overweight, and unfulfilled.
At 39, after walking up a flight of stairs and feeling like he was gonna have a heart attack, Roll reached another pivotal point in his life. He decided to look for a way of living and eating that would support the best version of himself.
After experimenting with all sorts of diets with just so-so results, he eventually tried going vegan. And? Loved it. Felt amazing. High energy, strong, crazy endurance. This was it.
Rich Roll went on to lose those 50+ pounds, got shredded, and look back he did not.
Naturally, he became interested in human potential. Began training for, competing in, and placing high up in some of the world’s most grueling endurance races. Yes, as a vegan. No, don’t ask him about a lack of protein “brah.”
Anyways. Onto the money part.
In 2012 Roll published his goosebump-giving memoir Finding Ultra: Rejecting Middle Age, Becoming One of the World’s Fittest Men, and Discovering Myself. It was a bestseller. (Snag it on Amazon with my partner link to get the lowest price plus fast, free shipping.)
Next came the Rich Roll Podcast. A top-10er on iTunes.
Then, in 2014, he and his wife (Julie Piatt) released The Plantpower Way: Whole Food Plant-Based Recipes and Guidance for the Whole Family. Also a bestseller. (Also on Amazon via my partner link, player.)
Rich Roll leverages his incredible life story to impact millions of people online and off.
Through book sales, him and his wife’s The Plantpower Meal Planner app, speaking gigs, workshops, retreats, podcast sponsors, affiliate marketing, and more, he’s turned his plant-based passion into an impressive multi-million dollar business.
And I don’t see it slowing down any time soon.
