Known online for his motivational videos, Dhar Mann is an established businessman and film producer. He oversees Dhar Mann Studios, which is responsible for all the content he puts out on YouTube and other social media networks. He also owns a cosmetics line called LiveGlam. Dhar Mann has a net worth of $150 million as of 2023.
On May 29, 1984, Dharminder Mann was born in Oakland, California. His parents, Baljit Singh and Surinder Mann, are Indian Punjabi immigrants who came to the United States to run a local taxi company.
Their firm was called Friendly Cab. In 1980, they shifted their focus to the real estate business, starting a number of local brokerages. Because of this, they had less time to spend with their son.
Dharminder spent much of his childhood in the Bay Area. He lived with three other families inside a one-bedroom apartment. In college, he studied political science and economics.
At 19 years old, while in college, he tried to follow in his parents’ footsteps by starting his own real estate business. He also launched a mortgage refinancing startup and a luxury car rental company, among many other endeavors.
However, most of these ventures failed. In 2010, he partnered with a stock broker named Derek Peterson to start weGrow and sell hydroponics for cultivating medical marijuana.
A year later, Mann and Peterson’s business relationship was shattered, and they filed lawsuits against each other. In the end, Mann was charged with five felony counts, five years of probation, and a $10,000 fine.
In 2015, the Oakland entrepreneur returned with new business ideas. He started the LiveGlam cosmetics brand with his fiancee at the time and also planned to launch an eCommerce site.
In 2018, he founded Dhar Mann Studios to create content on various social media platforms. His output initially covered motivational videos before shifting to morality plays. This helped him secure a deal with Creative Artists Agency in 2021.
His new agency developed an app that featured all of Dhar’s videos that helped him get 16 million subscribers on YouTube. On Instagram, he gained 4.7 million followers, but his biggest presence is on Facebook, with 29.2 million followers.
Net Worth and Earnings
The growth of Mann’s follower count has been rapidly growing ever since he started producing videos. Currently he averages over 250 millions views per month and makes an estimated $30 million annually with YouTube ad revenue. He also built considerable wealth through his business pursuits and potentially inherited money from his parents.
The weGrow medical marijuana dispensary reported about $17 million in yearly sales before it shut down. His current company, LiveGlam, makes $20 million a year. These massive numbers add up to a net worth of $150 million.
The film producer’s fiancee who helped him launch LiveGlam is Laura Avila. They first met in 2015 and instantly clicked. Both of them have equal management responsibilities in their company.
Apart from being a business duo, they are life partners. The couple is currently raising two children, Ella and Myla, in a mansion that was previously owned by reality star Khloe Kardashian.
