Net Worth, CEO – Rich20Something
Daniel DiPiazza is a 29-year old millennial entrepreneur. His most notable achievement is the creation of his blog and successful website, Rich20Something.com.

Building as a young Millennial Entrepreneur
Daniel DiPiazza grew up in Detroit, Michigan. He attended University of South Florida and majored in Communication and Media Studies. Upon graduating in 2009, DiPiazza couldn’t fathom joining the “corporate rat race,” instead; he waited tables and answered phones. Unhappy and frustrated that he wasn’t making money, DiPiazza decided to take his career into his own hands.
Daniel DiPiazza’s exact net worth is currently unknown, however, it is estimated to be at least $1,000,000. “He has successfully started three consecutive freelance businesses and scaled them to over $100K in revenue with zero startup capital.” His popular website, Rich20Something.com boasts: over 1 million visitors per year, 130,000 active followers, and his debut book Rich20Something is poised to be a best seller.
Earliest Business Ventures
In 2012, DiPiazza launched a test prep company. He “made deals with private admissions coaches who prep high school students for their college essays.” He garnered a large clientele. He then moved on as a freelance business and marketing consultant. He studied “entrepreneurship, startups, email marketing, copywriting, sales funnels, and building an audience.” DiPiazza became so good at these skills; he began his humble blog, Rich20Something.com.
Rich20Something.com started as a blog for DiPiazza to write about business, marketing, and entrepreneurship. As the blog became more successful, he partnered with companies: I Will Teach You To Be Rich, The Art of Charm, and Pavlok. In 2014, DiPiazza committed to Rich20Something full-time.
Rich20Something attained massive growth in a saturated arena because DiPiazza gave away his content for free. This built a loyal following, and DiPiazza continues to share free content across his social media channels today.
DiPiazza began making money by “building digital information products and teaching young people how to start their own freelance businesses and online startups.” Rich20Something reaches over 1 million visitors per year.

DiPiazza’s newest book, Rich20Something: Ditch Your Average Job, Start an Epic Business, and Score the Life you Want is published by Penguin Random House, and has sold thousands of copies.
DiPiazza decided to focus on the niche millennial market as his target audience. He saw that millennials were actively engaging with him on social media, and genuinely wanted to know how he started his businesses. So he decided to “empower millennials to embrace their inner entrepreneur.”
The Rich20Something podcast explores what famous entrepreneurs were doing in their 20’s, and how they hustled their way to success. Guests include: Gerard Adams, Tim Sykes, Thomas Bilyeu, Joel Brown, Michael & Bonnie Houlihan, and Navid Bakhshayesh.
Successful Blog Writer
DiPiazza’s blog became an instant hit due to his “bringing back an old trend- writing long form essays and thought pieces.” His style of writing combines openness, passion, and useful facts. He also engages with his followers on a personal level; when they reach out, he responds.
DiPiazza has released several mixtapes about life as an entrepreneur. He is raw and states, “tracks cover everything that goes on the life of a REAL entrepreneur. Not the fake stuff you see on Instagram.” Albums include: The Rich20Something Mixtape, smaller. and Create.
DiPiazza is a talented copywriter. The 29-year old regularly writes articles for: Huffington Post, Time Magazine, Fortune, Entrepreneur, Business Insider, Inc, Fox News, and Yahoo! Business.
DiPiazza is very active on social media. His Instagram has 237,000 followers, Twitter has 21,000 followers, and Facebook has 20,498 followers. DiPiazza has also developed a private Facebook community, The Rich20Something Community, which boasts over 17,000 members. Members “vent, share, and grow with people who won’t laugh at your ambitions.”
DiPiazza ascribes to “leveling up” as a major factor for success. He says, “by following your passions no matter what, you will get closer to what you want and who you want to be in your own personal entrepreneurial journey.” Leveling up is choosing to take the path less traveled, figuring out what you’re good at and charging money for your skills, and launching your own successful business after building a reputable list of clients.
“When I look around me, I still sometimes can’t believe what I’ve accomplished. I have a team of three full-time employees, three interns, a few part-timers and dozens of service providers whom I depend on every week for various tasks.”
“When I got into Instagram in the spring of 2015, it was still early days. So there was definitely a ‘first-mover’ advantage for accounts like mine that wanted to dominate the entrepreneurship space for Millennials. But I also offer something quite unique to my followers—I actually listen and respond.”
