It has been a long while since Justin Timberlake has been around and, not surprisingly, he has something impressive to show when it comes to net worth. Some sources still estimate his net worth at $115 million, but according to some others it is actually $150 million, which seems to be the latest number. In 2013 alone, he earned over $60 million.
So how does a simple guy from Memphis become Justin Timberlake, the multimillionaire who dates some of the most beautiful and famous women in the world? Probably even Justin himself will not be able to give a good answer to this question, because he began to perform when he was still a child. It is not a secret that you don’t have to be terribly talented to be a successful singer. All you need is persistence and, even better, good connections. But when it comes to Justin, he was definitely a talent right from the beginning. His impressive career was only a natural progression of what he did already as a child.
Justin first appeared on television show Star Search when he was only 11 years old and starting from there his career in music developed very rapidly. In addition to singing and song writing, Timberlake was very active as an actor and took a role in 17 films, with Inside Llewyn Davis being the latest (2013). During the yearsm he has hosted a number of popular TV shows and music events, including European MTV Awards and Saturday Night Show.

Another important source of his wealth is coming from TV commercials. He provided his celebrity endorsement for such names as McDonalds, Pepsi, Givanvchy Play and some others. Here is the commercial he made for Givanchy:
And as if this wasn’t enough, he launched his own clothing line William Rast in 2005. In addition, he co-owned several restaurants in the United States. Similarly to other famous artists and singers we mentioned earlier, a lot of his income comes from his business ventures which were helped by his celebrity status and not by singing pr acting itself. In fact, Justin Timberlake has been quiet for four long years before announcing his comeback to scene in 2013.
The success of Justin Timberlake is certainly hard to replicate because he started so early, however you don’t have to be a singer or any type of celebrity to be rich. Ralph Lauren and Marc Cuban, for example, were ordinary Joes working ordinary jobs, yet now they belong to the richest people of the world, even richer than Justin.
