Jeff Bezos has been hailed as the richest man in the world, inching out long-time titleholder and Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates. The majority of his earnings came from his online shopping retail site Amazon.com with record-breaking profits from Amazon Prime Day. Huge portions also stemmed from his acquisition of Whole Foods in 2017 and The Washington Post in 2013. Adding to the Bezos Empire are big brands and promising companies as well including Zappos, Living Social, Audible, Alexa, Stack Overflow, Business Insider, Twitter, and even video streaming website Twitch. His estimated net worth is $108.1 billion, according to Forbes.
