The 1st African American Billionaire Who Isn’t an Athlete or Entertainer. Meet Robert Smith

PLEASE SHARE THIS POST IF IT’S WORTHY!
Name: Robert Smith

Net Worth: $2.5 Billion

Industry: Private Equity

From: Colorado

Robert Smith is one of three African American Billionaires. Oprah & Michael Jordan are the other two. Dr. Dre is close & Diddy is closer, but both are roughly $250 million away from being billionaires. Bob Johnson was a billionaire after he sold BET to Viacom, but he split half with his wife after they divorced and he made a few bad investments along the way that put him under the $1 Billion. Unlike the others, Robert Smith is the only one who didn’t acquire his wealth in the entertainment/athletics space. He’s a hardcore businessman and he acquired his wealth as the owner of a private equity company. Simply put, a private equity company is a company that buys and invests in other companies. Hear his story as he speaks about wealth attainment to a group of African American businessmen and women. Please share this article if you think it’s worthy!

    More billionaires and millionaires are created every year and that is the best thing for America. The more, more opportunities are created. More opportunities more success and prosperity.
