Teremana Tequila is Dwayne Johnson’s personal tequila brand and it’s clear to see it’s his absolute pride and joy. Marketed as being a strong, high quality brand, sales of Teremana Tequila skyrocketed in the company’s very first year of business. Complex reports that; “he helped craft everything about the liquor from its taste to its name which is a combination of the Latin word for earth and the Polynesian word “mana” (a powerful guiding spirit).”

Johnson is also keeping his tequila costs as affordable as possible for all to enjoy.

When it comes to making movies, he has proven to be versatile, and a huge hit at the box office.

7 Spending Spree: Tribal Tattoos

Dwayne Johnson is covered in tattoos, and each one of them represents something critically important to his journey, and the story of his life. Spending money on tattoos is something that he does freely, as he considers his ink to be an expression of his true self.

Staying connected to his Samoan roots, Dwayne has many tribal tattoos that link him to his culture. Some of them include a The Brahma Bull, along with a tortoise shell, and a series of stones. They correspond with being a warrior, protection, strength, and courage.

One of Dwayne’s most interesting ventures is the Rock Clock App. It was launched in 2016 and designed as a way to get his fans up and motivated first thing in the morning, which surely offers a better wake-up call than the annoying beeping of regular alarm clocks. He has pre-recorded motivational messages available to inspire the user, and the app is free to use on handheld devices. More unique, positive vibes are featured within the 25 ring tones which The Rock has personally designed and included as well.

5 Project: Acorns

Many fans will find it shocking to hear that at one point in Dwayne Johnson’s life, he only had $7 left in his bank account. He has leveraged this critical turning point in his life by offering $7 to the parent of each child that invests in Acorns. This is his very own digital personal finance service geared towards encouraging investment in the future of today’s children.

Dwayne Johnson definitely loves his Ford F-150 pickup truck and he’s famous for just how much he admires that machine. Don’t let that simple pleasure fool you, he happens to also have a garage full of stunning supercars, too.

His car collection includes a rare 1971 Chevy Chevelle, A Ferrari LaFerrari, 2017 Ford GT, Lamborghini Huracon, and a Rolls Royce Wraith, just to name a few. He also owns one of the 100 Pagani Huayras that have been made, which on its own costs $1.3 million, before personalization costs are applied.

According to Forbes, ZOA “is free from preservatives, artificial ingredients, and additives” and is packed with all the vitamins and electrolytes that a hard working body needs.

2 Project: Seven Bucks

Carrying the “7” theme one step further, Dwayne Johnson named his production company “7 Bucks” and this is yet another one of his projects that has been wildly successful. He even released the Jumanji series and Shazam, both of which were huge at the box office.

Having his own production company gave Dwayne the ability to produce a wide range of movies, television shows, and so much more, putting him in the driver’s seat, and adding layers of income to his already huge fortune.

1 Spending Spree: A Crazy Expensive Private Jet

A post shared by therock (@therock)

Many big time celebrities opt for the use of a private jet to get them to where they need to be while remaining in the lap of luxury. Many choose to rent their private jets by the hour, while others own their planes outright. Then, there are those such as Dwayne Johnson, who take private jet ownership to a whole other level.

He bought one of the most luxurious, most expensive private jets that money can buy.

He has his very own Gulfstream G650, and he spent a generous $65 million on this singular purchase. There are a series of private jets that cost far less than this, but Dwayne opted to spend in this top-of-the-line machine instead.
