Rodney Mullen is an American former professional skateboarder, entrepreneur, and public speaker. A pioneer and inventor in the world of skateboarding, he is dubbed the "Godfather of Street Skateboarding" for inventing, among other things, the flat ground ollie, kickflip, heelflip, and impossible. 

As of April 2020, Rodney Mullen's net worth is $30 million.

How Did Rodney Mullen Make His Million Dollar Fortune?

Rodney started skateboarding at age 10, and a year later, he was already performing in the Boy's Freestyle leg of the US Open Championships. He was scouted by skateboard manufacturer, Bruce Walker, who was so impressed by his skills that he agreed to sponsor him.  

Rodney then started training rigorously and racked up thirty consecutive wins in local amateur skateboarding competitions throughout the late 1970s and won the national competition held in Oceanside, California, in 1979 at age 13. 

A true prodigy, Rodney went on to rack up victories, culminating in the-then-14-year-old Mullen beating the world champion, Steve Rocco, at the Oasis Pro competition in 1980. 

By 1990, Rodney had won all but one out of the thirty-five freestyle competitions that he entered in. 

Rodney was also a pioneer and an inventor, and he invented a majority of skating's ollie and flip tricks. Some of his most prominent contributions to vertical skateboarding and street skateboarding include his pioneering of the flat ground ollie, the kickflip, the heelflip, and the 360-flip (or Tre-flip), among others.  

After reaching the pinnacle in freestyle skateboarding, coupled with its dwindling popularity in favor of street skateboarding, Rodney joined the skateboarding team, Plan B Skateboards, in 1991, making his transition to the street complete. His endorsement of street skateboarding gave it the legitimacy it needed and propelled the sport to heights unforeseen.

In 1989, Mullen also became a co-founder and principal investor in World Industries, with the person whom he beat for his first world championship, Steve Rocco.

In 1997, Mullen started the skateboarding company, the A-Team, with fellow skateboarders, Marc Johnson, Gershon Mosley, Dave Mayhew, and Chet Thomas after Plan-B dissolved following founder Mike Ternasky's death.  

Mullen also started his own skateboard-truck-designing company, Tensor and co-founded another skateboard company, Almost Skateboard, with fellow skateboarder, Daewon Song.     

His investment in World Industries paid off, as when the company was sold in 2002 to Globe International for $46 million, Mullen and Rocco become multi-millionaires. Mullen also landed a job in Globe International under the Dwindle Distribution brand.

Rodney is also a noted speaker and has spoken on such diverse topics as spirituality, science, and invention.
