When it comes to wealthy tech entrepreneurs, few are more colorful and innovative than Alex Becker. Becker’s estimated net worth is approximately $15 million, and he continues to branch out in ways that are both surprising and lucrative.
His early years certainly didn’t indicate that he would amass great wealth. Becker, who is 33, was born in Texas in 1988 in Dallas, Texas, and little is known about his family.
He started his career in the US Air Force, where he worked as an aircraft firefighter. Becker retired from the Air Force at 23, then went on to found a pair of companies. Source Wave Marketing and Market Hero.
Source Wave’s claim to fame is its SEO software, while Market Hero is a business email platform that automates tracking and provides social media integration.
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.
Becker has also ventured into the literary world too, sort of. His debut book was dubbed “The 10 Pillars of Wealth; Mindsets of the World’s Richest People,” which supposedly gives budding entrepreneurs the tools to develop and enhance the leadership skills to make their own fortunes.
He’s also been involved in some shadier ventures that have led some to speculate that he might be a scam artist, although there’s no evidence to back that up. Biohacking is one of his biggest passions, which led to the founding of an ecommerce nutrition site called Spekter Labs that sold premium nootropics products as well as vitamin supplements. Becker has since sold the company and founded Hyros, a specialty platform for high-end digital marketers such as Russell Brunson.
Not surprisingly, he’s invested a good bit of his wealth into Bitcoin and altcoins, hoping to get ahead of the herd in those speculative ventures as well. He also offers online courses that cover drop shipping on Spotify as well as YouTube ads, and both are well regarded. Becker is a strong believer in exploiting YouTube as an untapped traffic source, and the numbers say he’s doing well in that arena, too.
Becker’s confidence extends into his personal life, where he combines outrageous tactics with an aura of mystery to augment the intrigue that constantly surrounds him.He’s been called a “minimalist millionaire” due to his housing exploits, which are unconventional to say the least. Becker now lives in an opulent but empty house in Dallas after he supposedly sold all his possessions, and he now claims he doesn’t even own a couch.
His love life is just as audacious and mysterious. After dating a gorgeous blonde who was known only as “Rachel,” the couple has now split up so that Becker can turn Hyros into a major moneymaker, if you believe his version of the breakup. If you buy into Becker’s track record on the business side, he seems like a sure bet to succeed somehow and continue to be outrageous along the way. And who knows, maybe his next girlfriend can even convince him to buy a couch!
