Real estate and entrepreneurship are some of the most common ways to become a multi-millionaire. This is exactly how Manny Khoshbin built his fortune and he isn’t afraid to show it off on social media. Manny is the president of The Khoshbin Company, Inc. and the founder of Contrarian Academy. As of 2023, Manny Khoshbin has a net worth of $80 million.
Khoshbin was born on January 14, 1971. He is originally from Iran and spent most of his childhood there with his four siblings. Because of this, his family immigrated to California, United States, in 1985.
He was only 14 years old when they moved. At 16, while in high school, he got his first job at Kmart in Santa Ana. Later on, he bought and sold dry fruits to earn extra money.
The aspiring hustler began looking for other jobs soon after, eventually finding work with a marketing firm. Shortly after entering the company, he became one of their top salesmen.
He decided to start a business of his own, but it was shortly shut down. In 1991, he used all his savings to buy a gas station at a discounted price from a family friend. However, it turned out to be a scam, and he went bankrupt.
Manny recovered a year later. He became a broker and president of Century West Financial. The real estate company did well, and Khoshbin worked there for more than six years.
In 1998, the rising businessman worked as a broker for Fidelity National Funding and later became the firm’s president. In 2005, he became the chairman of perhaps his most successful venture, The Khoshbin Company, Inc.
The Khoshbin Company went on to own and manage over 600,000 square feet of revenue-generating real estate. With this, Manny decided to leave Fidelity National Funding in 2008.
He branched out into publishing, with Manny Khoshbin’s Contrarian PlayBook being his first published book. It was released in 2011. Khoshbin became the CEO of the internet publishing company Fuzul.
His most recent venture is founding Contrarian Academy, a course for commercial real estate investors. Furthermore, he has been uploading videos to his YouTube channel since 2015. His content is mostly about his car collection and lavish lifestyle. He currently has 1.52 million subscribers.
Net Worth and Earnings
His YouTube channel attracts over 4 million visitors every month and Koshbin makes an estimated $250,000 in ad revenue according to SocialBlade.com. He also gets extra from sponsorship deals. However, it’s safe to say that this is not his primary income source.
Koshbin currently runs three companies: Fuzul, The Khoshbin Company, and Contrarian Academy. He also earns royalties from his three published books. With this, his net worth is estimated to be around $80 million.
Manny Khoshbin married Leyla Milani in 2011. They have two children together, Enzo and Priscilla. Their home is located in Newport Coast, California. It contains Manny’s avid collection of supercars and watches. He has six luxury watches, and his cars are worth over $30 million.
