If someone has a plan to strike it rich, Ken Block may not be the best example.  Although the multi-millionaire can claim riches beyond compare, he did it first through hard work, collaboration with buddies, manufacture of a popular culture item and then some natural athletic talent.  The former outright co-owner of DC shoes and extreme sports wear now has a healthy net worth of $157,479,300.  

Block realized that the growing market of extreme sports needed to be accommodated in clothes, accessories and shoes.  So he and a buddy started up DC Shoes to sell to their fellow skateboarders, surfers, BMXers and snowboarders.  Within 11 years, big ass brand Quicksilver came visiting to Vista, California and bought out their wares and brand for $87 million.  To this day, Block continues to be the Chief Brand Officer of DC shoes.  But the purchase by Qucksilver didn't change his ways, that was just the start of things for Block.  

His next move came in the way of Rally racing.  Rally racing is a auto racing sport that doesn't rely on predetermined tracks.  Although the routes have been designated, they can be on dirt roads, ice or snow roads or sand and mountain road.  The vehicles are usually modified or street legal cars.  Block, using his athletic background.  dedicated the next segment of his life to pursuing a championship in the worldwide series of rally racing.  

Starting out in 2005, Block and his driving partners started out racing with a modified Subaru.  His relation grew with the team as his record improved.  In 2010, his credentials earned him a spot on the Ford team.  His is one of the first Americans that have elevated to the level of pursuing a World Rally Racing title.


Bottom Line: By controlling his lifestyle and spending less than he makes, Ken earns $9,540,000 per year after lifestyle, taxes and other expenses.
