Erik Bergman, the founder of Great.com, made over $50 million before his 30th birthday by co-founding a marketing company, which he took to the stock exchange with a $200 million evaluation.
But the money and success didn’t bring him true happiness. It’s when he started to give back that he found immense fulfilment. He left his company and invested $900,000 for the domain name Great.com – starting a new business that donates 100% of its profits to stop climate change.
Further, he runs the podcast “Becoming Great.com,” where he teaches the principles and mindset of getting rich to his over 250,000 followers. He is a firm believer that once people get rich, they will focus on making the world a better place.
