Welcome to the ultimate analysis of Sam Parr for 2024. I’m a HUGE fan of the MFM pod! I’ve listened to the last 200 episodes.
Plus, I’ve spent thousands of hours watching other successful business educators on YouTube.
The goal of these profiles is to show you the different ways people have built 6 and 7-figure businesses online, so you can see what it takes to find your own success, starting today.
Sam Parr Overview
💡Full Name and Age
Sam Parr is 35 years old as of 2024.
🤑 Net Worth
After selling The Hustle to Hubspot for around $20m USD, it’s fair to say that in 2024, Sam Parr has a net worth of $27,000,000 USD.
He keeps most of his wealth in Vanguard ETFs, some of it in Index Funds, which he also owns an Airbnb on 10 acres of farmland (known as Marathon Ranch), although the ROI is surprisingly low.
Fun fact: In Sam’s early days, he used to create ‘net worth’ articles through blogs and they would rank easily. Look what I’ve done right here… 😉
🤩 Income Streams
Sam still works part-time for Hubspot and continues to operate The Hustle. In addition, he makes money through investing and consulting, plus part-ownerships in content sites and SaaS companies.
Sam Parr lives in Austin, Texas. He does not own his own home and prefers to rent.
Sam’s a true hustler and has a wife who has stood by his side for 10 years.
She is also a millionaire who worked in a conventional job and simply had a FAANG job. She took some stock options at Airbnb and when the company went public, many employees in her office became rich.
❌ Notable Complaints
Sam creates some controversy by cutting off guests on the podcast, especially if Shaan Puri is on too. In one episode, I saw them talk amongst themselves for around 15 minutes which was bizarre.
🚀 The X-Factor
Despite his wealth, he’s a true hustler.
📈 Creator Trends
Sam continues to trend on social media.
🕵🏻♂️ Private Life
Sam Parr’s wife is Sara Sodine Parr who is more of an employee rather than a business owner. Still, she’s a genius!
👨🏻💻 My Verdict
Sam is a legend in my books and I tune in twice weekly for the My First Million podcast.
I’m Joshua Smith from Australia. I have been building profitable content sites since 2011.
Today, in addition to managing my own portfolio, I actively help others on their journey.
How much does Sam Parr make and how?
Sam Parr makes 6-figures per month on YouTube through his numerous business ventures, stock portfolio and some consulting. Yes, he does still work with Dharmesh and the team at HubSpot.
Sam recently started an incubator for startups called Hampton.
Sam is praised on the My First Million podcast and on social media for:
➜ Cutting through all the BS
➜ Working consistently over 10 years
➜ Participating in the FatFIRE Subreddit
➜ Being willing to ask unique questions
And most importantly – he plays off his energy and humor with Shaan in every episode to make it uber interesting.
Creator Red Flags
Sam can, at times, cut off his guests midway through a sentence. Apart from that, I haven’t seen any red flags. Some people can’t handle his personality.
The X Factor
The best qualities of Sam are:
➜ He’s incredibly good-looking (and yes, I’m a straight man!)
➜ Despite his wealth, he’s still building his next empire
➜ While he’s fierce, he’s also funny and a great storyteller
➜ He’s genuinely done an 8-figure exit which is impressive
And he always asks the best interview questions.
Ultimately, I’ve learned a ton from listening to the weekly podcast and the Trends.co subscription.
My key takeaways include:
➜ There are still a ton of opportunities
➜ Work your face off in your 20’s and 30’s
➜ FAANG jobs are definitely a safe bet
➜ Don’t get distracted by shiny objects
And of course, find the right strategy and community for you.
