Chris and Crystal have been living together for so long without any divorce rumors or extra affair. We wish to know more about Sacca's family life in the following days.
Chris Sacca's Journey From Debt To A Billionaire
Sacca initiated his career as an entrepreneur when he was still studying in law school. He used his student loans to start his own business but it failed.
Later, he used the remaining funds to start trading in the stock market. He turned $10,000-20,000 into $12 million by 2000.
Unfortunately, when the market crashed, he found himself in $4 million in debt. In 2000, he started working as an associate at Fenwick & West in Silicon Valley and then at Google in 2003 as Corporate Counsellor.
Sacca worked in his own organization and founded Lowercase Capital in 2007. It is the venture capital fund in the U.S. that has invested in companies like Facebook, Twitter, and Uber.
He gained wide recognition when he joined the hit reality TV series Shark Tank as a guest investor in 2015.
Back in April 2017, he stunned his fans and admirers when he announced that he gave up on venture investing and also his role in 'Shark Tank' via a blog post. He wrote,
"It’s hard to leave all this behind right when things are going so well."
Further, he wrote,
"I’m good at what I do and still improving as I learn from mentors, founders, partners, friends, family, strangers, my own investors, and the experience itself. The better I get at investing in and helping companies, the result is more founders who are excited to work with me and more of my wonderful limited partners insisting I take piles of their loot to keep it all going. People offering you risk-free money is generally considered a positive thing. But, as I have increasingly realized…"
Sources reported that he might have taken the step as his part-time investing wasn't sustainable for his firm.
Talking about his decision to leave 'Shark Tank', he mentioned that he can't continue his role in the show. As of 2018, he has an estimated net worth of about $1.1 billion.
