From Street Rat to Millionaire: Inspiring Success Story of Mark Wahlberg

Mark Wahlberg started his life on the streets and he didn’t know which direction he wanted his life to go. The actor dealt with some pretty serious allegations involving petty stealing and substances abuse which made it almost impossible for him to continue his life in Boston, Massachusetts.

He grew up as the youngest out the nine siblings which meant that the family had to struggle even harder to make ends meet. Mark was born and raised in poverty and at the age of 11, he saw his parents separate. His mother blamed herself for his juvenile delinquency. He abandoned his criminal life after being sent to prison once. In his quest to turn his life around, he joined his brother Donnie Wahlberg to take over the entertainment industry.

Today, the Wahlberg family is wealthy and influential. Mark’s eldest sibling, Paul Wahlberg is in charge of the family-owned burger chain, Wahlburgers. Mark started as a rapper and landed in Hollywood as an actor in the 90s. The way he transformed his life from a convicted felon to an award-winning is truly impressive. He has a lot of blockbuster movies under his belt like Transformers: Age of Extinction, The Departed and many more.

Life has not been a bed of roses for Mark, who has suffered controversies and tragedies in the past. Yet, he has overcome each obstacle and become a gifted actor with a family he loves dearly. Mark is worth over $255 million, thanks to all his hard work and determination.
