Michael Arrington Early Life and Career

Michael Arrington was born on March 13, 1970. He grew up in California and attended the University of California and then majored in economics at Claremont McKenna College.

He was able to graduate from Stanford Law School in 1995. Upon graduation, Michael proceeded to practice corporate as well as securities law. Not only at the company O’Melveny & Myers, but also at Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati.

Michael has actually been involved in many ventures before creating TechCrunch. Some of them were failures, but others were relatively successful, so here’s a small list of what he was involved in:

Joined Real Name (Failed after raising $100 million)

Co-Founded Achex (Internet payment company which sold for $32 million to ‘First Data Corp’)

CEO of RazorGator

Co-Founded Zip.ca

Co-Founded Pool.com

Founded Edgeio

On the board of directors at Foldera

As you can see, that’s quite a few ventures for Michael, considering he’s spent several of his years working on TechCrunch.

The blog TechCrunch was his biggest success, even after Achex which was sold for $32 million. Michael Arrington made enough money from the sale to purchase a Porsche, but not a lot more.

TechCrunch was founded in 2005, and it’s essentially a news website that focuses on technology startup companies.

There isn’t much info out there on the actual creation of TechCrunch, either that or it’s just really hard to find. However, Michael did state that when he first started the blog, he would post several times a day. But, it was only 3 days before he got his first comment, and then he started getting subscribers to his RSS feed.

Every week Michael loved to see those numbers go up and he would count how many new subscribers he got each day.

Arrington is what you’d have to call, an absolute hardcore writer and worker. There are so many aspiring entrepreneurs out there that tell themselves they’re working hard, but as soon as they get bored or start to feel tired, they call it a day.

When Michael Arrington began on his journey with TechCrunch, he would normally work until he passed out, then wake up 8 hours later and do the same thing again.

He gained 50 pounds in 5 years, and his sleeping pattern was absolutely crazy. Arrington deserves to be successful because he’s sacrificed so much to get there.

His doctor is now trying to help him get his sleeping habits back to normal and get him to a healthier state once again.

As of 2019, Michael Arrington Net Worth is $15 Million. Michael Arrington Net Worth is mostly earned from TechCrunch.

Reasons behind Michael Arrington Success

According to Michael, ‘I would write several posts per day when I founded a successful blog. So for any other bloggers reading this, I think you can imagine how hard a thing that is to do. I personally write daily, but some people will write two or three times a week.’

Therefore writing several posts a day requires you to be glued to your screen, with laser-like focus and a tonne of ideas in your head ready to fire out to your readers. It’s difficult, but it’s definitely an elevator to success.

A blog firing out so much great content is going to get noticed within no time at all, and that’s exactly what happened.

Michael Arrington likes to listen to a lot of music when he writes, and not the happy friendly type of music. He does listen to artists like Metallica, Eminem, Rage Against the Machine, etc.
