When it comes to wealthy tech entrepreneurs, few are more colorful and innovative than Alex Becker. Becker’s net worth is estimated to be $50 million. Despite his fortune, he continues to run businesses in the tech and crypto space.
Becker was born in 1988 in Dallas, Texas, and little is known about his family. His early years didn’t indicate that he would amass great wealth. Alex started his career in the US Air Force, where he worked as an aircraft firefighter.
Becker retired from the Air Force at 23 and afterwards had a brief stint as a dating coach. During this time, he began working as a freelance SEO and was hired by local businesses to improve their website traffic.
The Texas native went on to found Source Wave Marketing and Market Hero. Source Wave’s claim to fame was its SEO software and education, while Market Hero is an email software that automates tracking.
But it was his YouTube channel and vlogs that truly made a splash. The most popular ones feature titles like “This Isn’t Fun But it Makes Me $2K an Hour, “Does a Ferrari Attract Girls?-Picking Up Girls in Ferrari,” and “My $45,000 Rolex (Worst Money Ever Spend),” so it’s not exactly hard to understand why he’s so intriguing to the “I wanna get rich quick” crowd.
He’s made millions selling online courses that cover dropshipping on Shopify as well as YouTube ads, and both are well regarded. Becker is a strong believer in leveraging YouTube as an untapped traffic source.
Becker also published a book titled “The 10 Pillars of Wealth; Mindsets of the World’s Richest People,” which gives budding entrepreneurs the tools to develop their leadership skills to make their own fortunes.
Biohacking is one of his biggest passions, which led to the founding of an ecommerce nutrition site called Spekter Labs. The company sold premium nootropics products as well as vitamin supplements. Becker sold the business and founded Hyros, an ad tracking platform for high-end digital marketers such as Russell Brunson. In December 2022, Banzai acquired Hyros for a staggering $110 million!
Not surprisingly, he’s invested a good bit of his wealth into Bitcoin and altcoins. In October 2021, Alex launched an NFT project called NEO Tokyo with Elliotrades. It’s still early days but the NEOToyko looks prime to make him millions from the NFT hype.
Becker’s confidence extends into his personal life, combining business smarts and goofy personality to attract a following. He’s been called a “minimalist millionaire” as he previously lived in a luxurious but empty house in Dallas after selling off his possessions. He didn’t even own a couch!
His love life is just as audacious and mysterious. After dating a gorgeous blonde called “Rachel,” the couple split up which allowed Becker to focus his full attention on Hyros.
Currently, Alex is dating Lindsey Hodges and regularly uploads photos of them together on Instagram. The couple have been together for over 18 months now, wedding bells don’t look far off! The beautiful brunette is a fashion stylist and started a new business, a bespoke personal styling service called Studio Lindsey.
