Tai Adrian Lopez or Tai Lopez, as he is better known, has millions of followers on his social media platforms. He also runs a website where he teaches people how to amass wealth. Not too much is known about him or his net worth although Tai claims to make about $3 to 5 million dollars a month. Born in 1977 in Long Beach California, he did not have his father in his life throughout his childhood due to his father’s incarceration.

His mother and grandmother raised him. Tai says he started his first business venture at the age of 6 selling cherry tomatoes. He then moved on from that venture to selling lemonade with sugar, which was more profitable than vegetables. What he learned from the Ventures was the importance of taking a risk.

His childhood was characterized by an inability to make friends which saw him turn to books instead. Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics had a significant impact on his life, resulting in his 'Good Life' theory. According to him, to be happy, you need to balance wealth, love, health, and happiness. His grandfather had a significant influence on many of his ideas and implanted in him the importance of books. To date, he follows the mantra of a book a day habit.
