Jump To Jim Cramer's Stats
Some people are just destined to be busy beavers. Count Jim Cramer in that crowd. The amount of projects Cramer has going at any given time could keep an army busy. It has kept his accountant busy as Cramer has built up a net worth of $139,087,200.
You could say his route to hosting CNBC's “Mad Money” television show hasn't been the most conventional. As a Harvard trained lawyer, Cramer went the money route and ended up out of law school as a broker for Goldman Sachs. He use to leave stock tips on his voice mail. He dovetailed his three years of experience at Goldman into starting his very own hedge fund.
Never to be satisfied with just one occupation, while he was running his own fund Cramer helped with the start of Smart Money for Dow Jones. He also founded another entity years later called The Street.com.
The entire time he was managing money, Cramer couldn't get away from his journalist roots. During his undergraduate work at Harvard he had substantial influence first as a writer and ultimately as the president of the school's newspaper called The Harvard Crimson. After he graduated with honors, he bounced down to Tallahassee, Florida to work at the local rag the Tallahassee Democrat. It didn't take long before a larger market newspaper came calling and he landed at the Los Angeles Herald Examiner before moving on to launch the American Lawyer magazine in New York City.
Cramer has also penned a few books in his spare time. He authored a multitude of book that seem to always end up on the New York Times Best Sellers list, they include Confessions of a Street Addict and Jim Cramer's Real Money, beside others. His articles have appeared in Time magazine and New York Magazine.
