Scott Disick, aka "Lord Disick" has gained fame and a devoted following since his appearances on reality show, Keeping up with the Kardashians. Disick is renowned for his expensive taste in clothes, cars, and women. The question that millions of fans are asking is: where did his fortune come from? Scott has been very allusive as to the origin of his wealth. The answer, is...complicated.

According to CheatSheet.com and CelebrityNetWorth.com Scott Disick's net worth in 2020 is $40 Million and his salary is estimated at $4 Million per year.

Lord Disick wasn't one of those people who started with nothing and made it big. Both his parents were successful real estate developers, whose total net worth together was around 25 million. Which, after they both passed away by 2014, he inherited. While Scott doesn't like to talk about the origin of his money, he sure loves to flaunt it.

Disick has, however, managed to expand his inheritance by quite a bit. While the full details on how he did it are unknown, he does mention venturing into several branches of business. One of these endeavors was label manufacturing in the vitamin and nutrition industry. He also invested in several night clubs that were owned by his friends. This broad portfolio allowed various sources of income to expand his inheritance. A large chunk of Disick's fortune is thanks to his relationship with the Kardashian family, as he now charges for appearances. Google states Disick's net worth at 16 million. However, factoring in all these sources of income, a more accurate evaluation of the Lord's income would be 12 to 26 million. Yes, this may be a large margin for an accurate number. The point is, he's rich and wants everybody to know it.

The Lord Disick relies on his money to portray who he is. He uses his fortune as the key to a lot, especially when it comes to relationships. His real fame started with his relationship (and marriage) to Kourtney Kardashian. Their on-again-off-again relationship has caused a lot of unhealthy behavior from Disick. He parties hard, dates numerous women (mostly more than one at a time). An inside source told People: "Scott is really sad about it, (break-up with Kourtney) and it's part of why he's lashing out". He's been boozing it up in many vacation destinations such as Miami and Cannes. Disick even went to the hospital for alcohol poisoning after a particularly wild party.

Recently, the Lord has been claiming he's cleaned up his act. Disick is the classic example of a trust fund kid. He's had money his whole life, and aside from a few broken hearts, he's experienced very little hardship, especially in the wealth departament. Years with seemingly limitless money have caused him to have a somewhat cocky attitude. It's still unclear whether he's earned the right to be this conceited, or if it's still just his parent's money doing the talking. Overall, he's a skilled businessman, and an interesting character, with a few flaws. But give him a break, we all have our imperfections. Disick's is just an abundance of arrogance.

Over two years into the most momentous event in our lives the world has changed forever … Some of us have PTSD from being locked up at home, some are living like everything’s going to end tomorrow, and the rest of us are merely trying to get by. When the pandemic hit we entered a perpetual state of vulnerability, but now we’re supposed to return to normal and just get on with our lives.

What does that mean? Packed bars, concerts, and grocery shopping without a mask feel totally strange. We got used to having more rules over our everyday life, considering if we really had to go out or keeping Zooming from our living rooms in threadbare pajama bottoms.

The work-from-home culture changed it all. Initially, companies were skeptical about letting employees work remotely, automatically assuming work output would fall and so would the quality. To the contrary, since March of 2020 productivity has risen by 47%, which says it all. Employees can work from home and still deliver results.

There are a number of reasons why everyone loves the work from home culture. We gained hours weekly that were wasted on public transport, people saved a ton of money, and could work from anywhere in the world. Then there were the obvious reasons like wearing sweats or loungewear all week long and having your pets close by. Come on, whose cat hasn’t done a tap dance on your keyboard in the middle of that All Hands Call!

Working from home grants the freedom to decorate your ‘office’ any way you want. But then people needed a change of environment. Companies began requesting their employees' RTO, thus generating the Hybrid Work Model — a blend of in-person and virtual work arrangements. Prior to 2020, about 20% of employees worked from home, but in the midst of the pandemic, it exploded to around 70%.

Although the number of people working from home increased and people enjoyed their flexibility, politicians started calling for a harder RTW policy. President Joe Biden urges us with, “It’s time for Americans to get back to work and fill our great downtowns again.”

While Boris Johnson said, “Mother Nature does not like working from home.'' It wasn’t surprising that politicians wanted people back at their desks due to the financial impact of working from the office. According to a report in the BBC, US workers spent between $2,000 - $5,000 each year on transport to work before the pandemic.

That’s where the problem lies. The majority of us stopped planning for public transport, takeaway coffee, and fresh work-appropriate outfits. We must reconsider these things now, and our wallets are paying

the price. Gas costs are at an all-time high, making public transport increase their fees; food and clothes are all on a steep incline. A simple iced latte from Dunkin’ went from $3.70 to $3.99 (which doesn’t seem like much but 2-3 coffees a day with the extra flavors and shots add up to a lot), while sandwiches soared by 14% and salads by 11%.

This contributes to the pressure employees feel about heading into the office. Remote work may have begun as a safety measure, but it’s now a savings measure for employees around the world.

Bloomberg are offering its US staff a $75 daily commuting stipend that they can spend however they want. And other companies are doing the best they can. This still lends credence to ‘the great resignation.’ Initially starting with the retail, food service, and hospitality sectors which were hard hit during the pandemic, it has since spread to other industries. By September 2021, the US Bureau of Labor Statistics reported 4.4 million resignations.

That’s where the most critical question lies…work from home, work from the office or stick to this new hybrid world culture?

Borris Johnson thinks, “We need to get back into the habit of getting into the office.” Because his experience of working from home “is you spend an awful lot of time making another cup of coffee and then, you know, getting up, walking very slowly to the fridge, hacking off a small piece of cheese, then walking very slowly back to your laptop and then forgetting what it was you’re doing.”

While New York City Mayor Eric Adams says you “can't stay home in your pajamas all day."

In the end, does it really matter where we work if efficiency and productivity are great? We’ve proven that companies can trust us to achieve the same results — or better! — and on time with this hybrid model. Employees can be more flexible, which boosts satisfaction, improves both productivity and retention, and improves diversity in the workplace because corporations can hire through the US and indeed all over the world.

We’ve seen companies make this work in many ways, through virtual lunches, breakout rooms, paint and prosecco parties, and — the most popular — trivia nights.

As much as we strive for normalcy, the last two years cannot simply be erased. So instead of wiping out this era, it's time to embrace the change and find the right world culture for you.

What would get you into the office? Free lunch? A gym membership? Permission to hang out with your dog? Some employers are trying just that.

Did you hear about the Great Resignation? It isn’t over. Just over two years of pandemic living, many offices are finally returning to full-time or hybrid experiences. This is causing employees to totally reconsider their positions.
