Suze Orman tops annual list of highest-paid authors
In 2018 it looked like the author’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Friday (August 7) that Orman is the highest-paid author in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between July 2019 and July 2020, a nearly $40 million lead over her closest competition.
People With Money’s factors
In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.
The American author-television host has an estimated net worth of $215 million. She owes her fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. She also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Orman Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Chicago Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderorman - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Suze) and a fashion line called “Suze Orman Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Suze fans, who have been waiting for her triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
