Scott Adams Net Worth
Scott Adams, the creator of the comic strip Dilbert, has an estimated net worth of $75 million. And yeah, the vast majority of that net worth is Dilbert money. He's also found work as an author of non-Dilbert-related works, including a novel called The Religion War. Although Adams had been interested in cartooning since he was a child, a lack of progress in art caused him to focus on a more traditional career receiving a bachelor's degree in economics. He then began working for various companies, including Pacific Bell, which is where he worked when his first Dilbert cartoon was published. From there, the popularity of Dilbert grew slowly but steadily, until eventually he was able to quit his job and work full-time as a cartoonist. Since then, Dilbert has exploded in popularity, bringing Adams all kinds of money from merchandising, books, and even a short-lived animated sitcom. As if that weren't enough, Adams is also the CEO of Scott Adams Food, Inc., which specializes in vegetarian dishes – this is because Scott Adams himself is a vegetarian. Despite (or perhaps because of) his success, Adams hasn't been free of controversy. He even recently admitted to logging onto various websites under a false name to defend himself from his attackers. Dilbert continues to be seen and read in newspapers across the world.
