‘Gold Rush’ Star Tony Beets’ Net Worth is Huge!

Tony Beets' net worth

If you’re like me when you’re watching reality television you wonder how much these “actors” are making per show. For me though, I’m not wondering about Kim K or Caitlyn Jenner, I am wondering about stars like Tony Beets.

Beets is a down-to-earth guy who just happens to also be the star of Discovery’s “Gold Rush.” The show follows Beets and his family, who all happen to be gold miners. (It’s a really great program if you have the chance to check it out.) Of course, there’s a ton of money in gold but what is Tony Beets’ net worth and how much is Discovery contributing to it?

Tony Beets’ Television Career

Tony Beets hasn’t been “on the radar” for too long. His career took a while to take off but, since it has, he has become extremely successful.

Beets started out as a gold miner who moved to Canada about 25 years ago. He prides himself on being a viking and many people even call him “The Viking.” He and his family work at Beets Crew at Paradise Hill. After years of mining reality television show producers caught wind of Beets’ hard work and wanted to start a show starring Beets and his family.

That is when “Gold Rush” got its start. The series began in 2010 and continues to run on the Discovery Channel. People all over the world have been tuning in regularly to watch Beets, his wife and three kid live their lives. So, if the show has become such a hit, what is Tony Beets’ net worth?

Tony Beets’ Net Worth

Tony Beets' net worthCompared to some other reality TV show stars, Beets and his family aren’t absolutely killing the television game but they aren’t doing too bad. Tony Beets’ net worth sits at about $15 million (and almost none of it is from TV).

He didn’t amass that amount of wealth overnight though. In fact, Beets is a really hardworking guy. Born in the Netherlands, Beets relocated in Canada to better his life. He started out working in construction and moved on to mining in 1984. He was able to climb up in his respective career and today he runs Tamarack Mine.

Tamarack Mine, which is featured on the Discovery series, is run by Beets and his family. They also hire teenagers to come work for them as well. The show that follows the family and other workers at the mine has become one of the network’s highest-rated series.

The majority of Tony Beets’ net worth doesn’t come from the reality television show though. Most of Beets’ wealth stems from his gold mine and it is likely that $15 million will continue to grow in the future. According to Beets, his ultimate dream is to be able to own and operate two highly productive gold mines at the same time. If he is able to meet that goal his riches will likely double in the years to come.

Make Artist Jaclyn Hill’s Net Worth May Surprise You

Jaclyn Hill's net worth

How-to and tutorial videos flood my social media timeline daily. It seems like everyone is interested in learning how to cook this, practice this makeup technique or make their own butter. What is even more surprising to me is the amount of cash people are pulling in from these types of videos.

Take makeup artist Jaclyn Hill, for instance. She has been able to make millions of dollars through her makeup tutorial videos and the makeup deals that followed. You’ve got to wonder how much money you can really make though. The 26-year-old makeup artist is a perfect example of vlogger success though.

So, what is Jaclyn Hill’s net worth and how did she get to be so successful from simple how-to videos?

Jaclyn Hill’s Net Worth

One thing separates Jaclyn Hill from other small-time vloggers out there: branding. She was able to make a name for herself, establish a following and land lucrative deals because of it. Her name on a product immediately makes it more valuable. The ability to do this led Jaclyn Hill’s net worth to climb to $1.5 million.

The major sources of Hill’s net worth are:

  • Youtube ads: Hill has 3.2 million Youtube subscribers, more than 260 million views and each of her videos gets about 330,000 clicks. These numbers average out to about $600 per day in Youtube ad revenue for Hill.
  • Makeup deal with Becca Cosmetics: The second part of Hill’s income comes from her deal with Becca Cosmetics. She and the makeup company partnered up on a highlighter set and it sold on at Sephora within hours.

Now that you know what Jaclyn Hill’s net worth is and where is comes from, how was she able to pull it all off?

How Did Jaclyn Hill Become So Successful?

Jaclyn Hill's net worthIn all honesty, Hill became successful because she started her career at a young age and was able to create a following for herself. She started her Youtube channel in 2011 at the age of 21. The focus of the channel was to share how-tos as a professional makeup artist and, as previously discussed, she was able to gain millions of subscribers.

Hill pulls in six figures a year from her Youtube channel alone. That isn’t even taking into consideration the extra cash flow from her husband, drummer Jon Hill, whom she’s been married to since she was 19, or the cash she is raking in from business deals.

Once her Youtube channel blew up, people began to recognize Jaclyn Hill’s name. The more recognizable the name, the more companies want it on their product. After her Youtube channel became so popular Becca Cosmetics jumped on the chance to have Hill’s name on their product. The highlighter palette the 26-year-old produced with the cosmetic company disappeared from the shelves of Sephora within hours of the launch.

The overly positive response to the Becca-Hill partnership has led Hill to even more business opportunities for the young woman moving forward. One thing is for sure though, Jaclyn Hill’s net worth won’t be going anywhere any time soon.

Blue Apron Free Week: Is Blue Apron Worth a Try?

Blue Apron Free Week
Have you seen those colorful, happy farm-to-table commercials on TV? You know the ones with cartoon-like characters, fresh and delicious-looking produce and happy faces throughout? Blue Apron is one of the most popular companies providing these farm-to-table experiences without having to head to the supermarket. In fact, the company is serving more than five million meals each week.

So, to answer the question posed in the title, yes, Blue Apron is worth the try and here’s why…

Blue Apron’s Cost

Right away I’ll tell you that Blue Apron isn’t a family-friendly meal plan. You’ll get three two-person meals a week for about $60. You can also get a Blue Apron meal plan for a family of four. For a four-person plan you’ll get two ($69) or four ($140) meals for the week (that is only a few dinners a week).

Blue Apron Free Week
That may seem like a lot of cash to shell out to only feed you and your partner (or your family) a few days out of the week (my initial thought). However, when you compare the Blue Apron quality of product and amount they are sending you you are really getting a decent deal. In fact, once I looked into it, making these dishes at home with comparable fresh ingredients would cost twice as much as Blue Apron is charging.

So, now that we’ve gotten the monetary items out of the way, what is the Blue Apron experience like?

Preparation of a Blue Apron Meal

When it comes down to it, that is exactly what Blue Apron is: an experience. You receive fresh “farm to table” produce in the mail with recipes and instructions on how to prepare the food. You’ll get to try new and exciting foods and feel accomplished because you’ve cooked it yourself.

Blue Apron Free Week
Preparing a Blue Apron meal is extremely easy too. Each delivery is accompanied with recipes for the items in the box. Each recipe card has the name of the dish and ingredients on the front. Turn the card over and you’ll see easy-to-read step-by-step instructions on how to prepare the meal (which is great if you’re learning to cook).

Delivery

Preparing the meal isn’t the only easy step either. Ordering, receiving and cancelling your Blue Apron deliveries is easy too. All you have to do to sign up for Blue Apron is register on the site. The company has also thought out their shipping process as well.

Blue Apron Free Week
You can log in to Blue Apron and change your delivery date based on your specific schedule (they’ll even deliver on Sundays). Opening and unpacking your Blue Apron order is comparable to Christmas! When it gets to your home each item is packaged individually with ice packs to keep it cool. You simply open the box and pick up layer by layer of fresh organic produce.

If you aren’t happy or need to discontinue your shipments for any reason you simply send the company an email and receive a cancellation link in return. You can also skip weeks if you don’t have the money or don’t like the upcoming recipes. It is truly hassle-free.

Conclusion

In my opinion, Blue Apron seems like a quality product for a reasonable price. You get high quality produce without having to brave the supermarket crowd (and that’s enough for me to want to continue weekly shipments). If you’re interested in giving the services a try you can sign up during Blue Apron free week or keep an eye out for promotions and then decide if you’d like to continue with their weekly deliveries.

Find Stores That Owe You Cash: A Paribus Review

Paribus Review

I, like many people, love to shop online. It is a great way to save money and avoid the crowds at the stores. What if there was a way to save even more money by shopping online?

Well, there’s an app for that! Paribus, a new app, is helping online consumers get cash back from stores that owe them money. While this sounds like a win-win situation, I had a few questions. So, I sat down to write a Paribus Review to give you all an idea about the app’s user-friendliness and usefulness.

A Paribus Review

As with any other money saving app, results may vary when it comes to Paribus and how much you’ll actually get back. In my book, it’s worth the time to sign up and give it a chance though. According to some of the app’s earliest users, there has been great success in getting cash back. Some users have even quoted $80 of savings at one time.

But how much time does it take to download and how involved do you have to be in the process?

It is Easy to Sign Up?

Everyone is busy so taking time to sign up for an app or website that may not ever save you money seems like a waste of time to some. However, according to the Paribus website, it only takes about 15 seconds to sign up (this may differ if you have slow app download times). You’ll also need to provide your credit card infomration and your email, but sign up is pretty easy.

All you have to do to sign up is link your email address that you have all your online receipts sent to. Once you’ve done that, sit back and relax. Paribus is going to take care of the rest.

How Does Paribus work?

Essentially the app scans your inbox for any online shopping receipts and helps save you money when there’s been a drop in price. These price guarantees are something that most stores offer anyway but they make you work for it. Instead of you sending the emails, making calls to save the cash, Paribus does it for you. 

  • How much does it cost? Although downloading Paribus is completely fee and you don’t technically pay for its services, Paribus does take 25% of the cash you get back. For instance, if you get $80 back from an Amazon purchase you will only receive $60. Paribus will cash in on $20 of your refund.
  • What stores does Paribus recognize? Right now Paribus is tracking about 20 of the nation’s largest retailers (this includes sites like Amazon, Macy’s, Walmart and Best Buy).

Paribus retailers

Paribus Promotional Period

Since Paribus is still a relatively new company they are having a promotional period where if you refer a friend you get 5% off their 25% fee. If you refer one friend, you will only have to paid 20% (two friends, 15%; three friends, 10% and so on). If you get in during this promotional period and refer five friends you can get Paribus completely free during the promo period.

Should You Download Paribus?

When all is said and done, downloading Paribus is a no-brainer. You don’t have to do anything but sign up and continue shopping the way you usually do. Paribus does the rest and, although they take a cut, the app still presents a great opportunity to save money (something we all need to do a little more of). 

So, what are you waiting for? Download Paribus and start saving!
