What Does Kody Brown Do for Work? Kody Brown, the patriarch of the famous polygamous family featured on TLC’s “Sister Wives,” has a diverse professional background. Over the years, he has pursued various ventures to support his family and build a brand around their unique lifestyle.
Early Career and Initial Ventures
When we first met Kody back in 2010, he mentioned working in online advertisement sales and marketing. He held well-paying jobs that provided him with a company car for commuting. However, reports suggest that Kody started his career as a lumberjack before transitioning into a traveling salesman. Eventually, he found success as a salesman at a sign shop, earning around $4,000 per month.
Shift to Reality Television
In recent years, Kody’s focus has shifted towards his family and his work as a reality star. He seized the opportunity to share his family’s dynamics on television and left behind his previous professions. Kody’s revenue primarily comes from building a brand based on his different households. He co-wrote a book titled “Becoming Sister Wives: The Story of an Unconventional Marriage” and launched a detox program. Additionally, he earns income from his salary as a reality star on “Sister Wives.”
Earnings and Side Ventures
As a reality star, Kody earns approximately 10% of the show’s per-episode budget. With an estimated budget of $250,000 to $400,000 per season and 13 to 15 episodes per season, the family makes around $400,000 per year. This figure does not include tax deductions. Furthermore, Kody’s wives Meri, Robyn, and Janelle have their own side hustles, including a bed-and-breakfast, an online jewelry and clothing store, and a real estate business respectively.
Current Net Worth and Future Prospects
Kody’s net worth is currently estimated to be around $800,000. However, given his ambitions and career trajectory, this number is expected to increase significantly in the future. Kody has founded his own production company called Kody Brown Family Entertainment LLC. The organization has been operational since January 2019 and includes all four of Kody’s wives as directing managers/officers.
