Fun Fact: Did you know that the median salary for a CEO is about $2,50,000 + bonuses.


Yeah, the median is around 15.7 million dollars for the top 100 CEOs, but that’s because this is the group of insane outliers. The true average of a CEO in today’s society earns about  $2,50,000 - $3,50,000 depending on how large the company is, how much they do etc.

What’s more insane is knowing that these people are making less than some people blogging on the internet. The average CEO is making less than some of these insane bloggers which are just kind of mind-blowing to think of. Because a blogger is usually just a one or two-man crew or CEO is leveraging the work and power of an entire workforce of people.

I couldn’t believe it when I first learned about this. But I will admit that I was hopeful and that kind of launched us into this journey of starting a blog and building this business. So I hope that this gives you some inspiration as well.
