It looks like Amazon’s Black Friday success has brought even higher success to CEO Jeff Bezos. Bloomberg has been keeping an eye on Jeff Bezos’ net worth today. For the first time ever, his net worth is now over $100 billion mark. Let that sink in for a moment. His net worth is now 100,000,000,000 dollars.
Jeff Bezos has already dethroned Bill Gates as the richest person in the world and now has his net worth surpass the $100 billion mark. His net worth is elevating and continues to because of Amazon’s stock and how well it’s been doing this year.
Amazon’s Black Friday success helped Bezos get past the $100 billion mark. The jump in the stock price helped him get to the 12-figure mark today. In case you’re wondering, no, the stock didn’t just magically jump up, but rather the jump was justified because one firm estimates Amazon may have accounted for half of all online sales this Black Friday. Let that sink in, half of all online purchases.
So with all of that money, what will Bezos do? Well, at that point, you don’t necessary say what you will spend the money on but rather how much will you give the money away or how? Jeff Bezos himself already took to Twitter to ask the community on how he can give back and is looking for answers. This past June, he asked on Twitter on how he can be a better philanthropist.
Bezos is looking for answers, best ideas, and the potential routes he can take. So far, he nearly has 50 thousand replies to his tweet. Have you contributed your idea(s) to him? If not, I urge you to give him some ideas.
