Dropping out of high school is a risk not many are willing to take to become successful. However, that’s what Iman Gadzhi did, and thankfully, it paid off! Iman is an entrepreneur and digital marketer who owns IAG Media and GrowYourAgency.com. As of 2024, Iman Gadzhi has a net worth of $30 million.
Iman Gadzhimagomedov was born in Dagestanskie Ogni, Russia, on January 3, 2000. Raised by a single mother, his biological father was an alcoholic and left before he was born.
They struggled financially until his mom remarried, and relocated to London. There, everything changed, they lived in a nice home and he enrolled in a private school.
However, the good times didn’t last too long. At 14 years old, his stepfather left, and it was up to him to take care of his mother. He took various odd jobs to pay the bills and later decided to drop out of high school.
Iman’s first venture was buying and selling Instagram accounts but it failed to make worthwhile profits. He turned to fitness training and later joined a semi-pro football league. Here he was hired to manage the football club’s social media.
This accidentally became his most profitable business. Several months later, he pitched his services to the popular fitness app, Aflete, and they agreed to hire him. This was a huge coup for Gadzhi and he dropped out of school to dedicate more time to the business.
Shortly after, he launched a social media marketing agency, IAG Media. Initially, it struggled in the early days but once they signed up big-name clients like FuroSystems and ZebraFuel, the business began to prosper.
Rise to Fame
Iman’s agency continued to expand and he documented the progress on YouTube and Instagram. One of his followers met him and asked about the strategies he used to grow the firm. The guy was willing to pay money in exchange for help, and Gadzhi soon realized this was another new avenue for him to make money.
In 2019, he began selling courses on GrowYourAgency.com and claims to have over 40 students making six figures. The young entrepreneur continued posting his ventures along with other finance-related content. As a result, he now has over 4.28 million YouTube subscribers and 1.5 million Instagram followers.
Net Worth and Earnings
Once Gadzhi discovered how scalable online marketing was, there was no turning back. He made the majority of his wealth through GrowYourAgency.com, IAG Media and Gadzhi.com, an e-commerce website. His flagship product is the Agency Navigator, the online course teaches you how to start an agency for $1,499.
Plus, he runs a successful YouTube channel that spits off steady passive income. His channel averages around 7 million views every month. Based on these figures, Iman should be making around $20,000 per month from ad revenue on YouTube.
Other than that, he has a cryptocurrency portfolio that was worth $7 million in May 2021. Unless he sold, the portfolio would have taken a massive hit. His top three biggest holdings are Ethereum, Cardano, and Nexo. He also owns StormX, OriginToken, Avalanche, and Tether. All of these ventures give Iman Gadzhi an estimated net worth of $30 million.
Iman previously dated but is now single. Natasha is also an entrepreneur and runs a LinkedIn consultancy agency. The 24 year-old currently splits his time between properties he owns in London, Dubai and Cape Town.
