There are many ways to get rich, and businessman Mark Tilbury knows a thing or two about making money. He is an accomplished entrepreneur and operates three successful companies. He enjoys sharing business knowledge through YouTube, podcasts and social media. As of 2023, Mark Tilbury has a net worth of $10 million.
Mark was born on September 15, 1968 in Canterbury, UK, into a lower-class family. He was the only son, and grew up with three sisters. Tilbury attended Fulston Manor School but dropped out at 16 years old. The Englishman believed that he didn’t need academic qualifications to get wealthy.
His first business venture was catching fish and selling five for a pound. Later Mark got a job making wooden trash cans and earned £2 per hour, sadly he quit the job as he was getting bullied at work. This was when Mark decided to go out on his own and start a business.
In 1988, Tilbury founded Model World Ltd, a company that sells remote-controlled toys. He made the early product designs himself and flew to China to get them manufactured. Mark owns a chain of retail stores and also sells products to businesses. He continued to prosper in the toy market with Century UK LTD.
Both of these companies are still in business and Mark serves as the CEO. After becoming a multimillionaire, he wanted to teach others how they can replicate his success. Thus, the entrepreneur launched Mark Tilbury Coaching Ltd in 2020.
To reach a bigger audience, the 54-year-old took his teaching online. He launched MarkTilbury.com, which features his podcast, “Like Father, Like Son?” and co-hosts the show with his son Curtis.
Over the past three years, Mark’s social media accounts have been growing steadily. In 2020, he tested creating content for TikTok and YouTube which really took off. I think his authenticity played a big role in attracting followers.
Also, the finance category was booming at the time. With consistent uploads, he now has 1.77 million subscribers on YouTube. However, his short clips on TikTok were more successful with more than 7.1 million followers on the platform.
