That’s why he says he tries to avoid buying stocks or other volatile assets ⁠– because, as he told Fortune in 2018, a daily obsession with their worth “could corrupt your values.”
Still, he’ll put money behind a venture he believes in: Wozniak is currently an investor on the online reality show “Unicorn Hunters.” The show sees Wozniak and other stars – including former U.S. Treasurer Rosie Rios and singer Lance Bass, among others – field investment pitches from tech start-up founders.
Wozniak’s goal isn’t to “make a ton of money,” he says. Rather, it’s to support companies and ideas that personally interest him. The mindset isn’t new: It’s one reason why Wozniak is now, reportedly, a millionaire – as opposed to a billionaire, like the late Steve Jobs was before his death in 2011.
