Here's how much money the men's US Open champion will earn

Rafael Nadal of Spain and Daniil Medvedev of Russia will play for the 2019 U.S. Open title on Sunday at 4 p.m. ET.

Nadal, 33, will play in his 27th Grand Slam final and is looking to claim a fourth U.S. Open, while Medvedev, 23, is competing in his first ever major final.

Sunday’s winner will also collect a $3.85 million check. The runner-up will earn about half that amount: $1.9 million.

The total payout for the tournament has skyrocketed over the last several decades. In 1973, when the men and women competitors earned equal pay for the first time, both champions received checks for $25,000. The winners earned six figures for the first time in 1983 ($120,000) and seven figures for the first time in 2003 ($1,000,000).

Even with the big increases in prize money, though, “it can be difficult for players to make much of a profit off competing,” No. 14 ranked John Isner writes on Forbes.

“The expenses can really add up, particularly at tournaments like Wimbledon and the French Open,” adds Isner, who not only pays for his own flights, meals and lodging, but also covers his coaches’ and trainers’ travel costs. “In those cases, if I don’t win a match, I’m actually in danger of losing money for competing.”

Isner, like other top ranked players, is in the fortunate situation where he doesn’t have to rely on just prize money to cover his expenses: He has a handful of sponsorship deals, which are “the closest thing to a guaranteed annual salary that a player has,” he says.

Finding sponsors ins’t always easy, though, especially if you’re not a top-ranked player. “You do well as a pro tennis player when you’re ranked in the top 20. But that can be short-lived,” Isner explains. “Brands are paying you to get their logos on televised show courts, so if your matches aren’t being featured on broadcasts because your play has fallen off … or because you’re injured and not playing at all — they’re going to stop calling.”

Players without sponsors have to win to pay the bills. “And winning is hard,” Isner notes, “which means it’s really hard to bring in prize money consistently.”

MLB pitcher Randy Dobnak, who was just called up to the majors, has been driving for Uber and Lyft for 2 years

The right-handed pitcher played for four years at Alderson Broaddus University, a small Division II school in West Virginia, and went undrafted after college despite a desire to play professionally. “I talked to a few different teams — six or seven — and the [Toronto] Blue Jays followed me for about three years,” he told podcast host Darren Wolfson on an episode of “Scoop.” “But nobody ever came to see me play. Every time they would plan on it, we’d either get rained out or snowed out.”

“I have all five star [reviews] except for one,” Dobnak told MLB.com in August. “I have one four-star. I’m hoping it was a mistake. I don’t remember doing anything bad.”

The 24-year-old, who spent the past two years pitching in the minor leagues, might have to cut back on his side hustle: According to his LinkedIn profile , he’s been driving for Uber and Lyft since October 2017 — and he’s an excellent driver with a “4.99/5 Uber driver rating,” his Twitter profile reads.

In August 2019, Randy Dobnak received a life-changing call from the Minnesota Twins: The franchise was promoting him to the big leagues .

After graduating in 2017 with a degree in accounting, Dobnak joined the United Shore Professional Baseball League (USPBL), a four-team independent league that plays out of Michigan.

Not many players make it from the USPBL to the majors — and Dobnak was prepared to walk away from the sport. “When I went to play [independent] ball, I said I’ll try this for a year,” he told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “If nothing happens, I’ll move on with my life.”

It didn’t take long for an MLB team to discover him: About a month after joining the USPBL, the Twins signed him. The past two years, he’s progressed through the team’s minor league organization, moving up from rookie ball and Single-A ball — the lowest levels of the minors — to Triple-A ball, which is the closest level to the majors.

Minor league players don’t make much money. Those at the lowest level, which is where Dobnak started, earn $1,100 a month. Players in Double-A, the next level up, can expect to earn about $6,000 a month and those in Triple-A make, on average, about $10,000 a month, Forbes reports.

Dobnak made his major league debut on August 9, but just because he was called up doesn’t mean he gets to stay. It’s common for players to be sent back and forth between the majors and minors.

While he’s in the majors, though, he’ll earn more money. The minimum salary for a major leaguer in 2019 is $555,000 — if you’re like Dobnak and called up from the minors to the majors mid-season, the $555,000 salary “is pro-rated over a 187-day season,” SB Nation explains, “so each day in the big show earns a player just shy of $3,000.”

Regardless of whether Dobnak is pitching in the minors or majors at any given time, he’s not giving up on his dreams: “You have to know that you’re good enough to compete against whoever is in front of you,” he told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “You have to be confident, be in control. I have confidence that I can compete with anybody. I’ll never give up.”

Chefs Jose Andres (right), has helped feed victims of other natural disasters, including Hurricane Maria and Hurricane Florence

Hurricane Dorian devastated the Bahamas earlier this week, causing massive destruction and killing at least 20 people. “My island of Abaco, everything is gone. No banks, no stores, no nothing,” said one resident of the Bahamas, Ramond A. King. “Everything is gone, just bodies.” Corporations and celebrities are mobilizing to offer disaster relief assistance. Here’s what they’re doing to help.

Disney

“The Walt Disney Company, led by Disney Cruise Line, has committed more than $1 million in cash and in-kind support to help relief and recovery efforts for those in The Bahamas affected by Hurricane Dorian,” the company tweeted on Tuesday. “We hope our $1 million donation will provide much-needed relief and help our neighbors, colleagues, and all those impacted by this devastating storm begin the long process of recovery as they work to put their lives and communities back together,” Disney chairman and CEO Bob Iger said in a statement.

Chef José Andrés

The Spanish chef is playing to his strengths to help in the Bahamas: He and his team are in Nassau serving thousands of meals to those in need. By Tuesday, Andrés, who has helped feed victims of other natural disasters, including Hurricane Maria and Hurricane Florence, had already flown 2,000 sandwiches and more than 1,000 oranges to the island. He plans to serve at least 10,000 meals to people in the Bahamas.

Ludacris

The hip-hop star pledged to donate all of the proceeds from LudaDay Weekend, his annual Labor Day Weekend event dedicated to social service, to helping the relief fund. He raised more than $100,000 over the weekend, he announced on Instagram:

Royal Caribbean

“In the wake of Dorian, we’re mobilizing our fleet to help those who need it,” the cruise line tweeted on Wednesday. “We’ll deliver +43k water bottles, 10k meals, generators, supplies & we’re just getting started.”

Carnival Corporation

Together with the Micky & Madeleine Arison Family Foundation, Carnival Corporation’s Carnival Foundation will give $2 million for Dorian relief efforts. “Our company has always been closely tied to The Bahamas with a rich history spanning many years,” Carnival Corp CEO Arnold Donald said in a statement on Wednesday, “so it’s heart-breaking to see the impact of Hurricane Dorian, and our thoughts and prayers are with the people of The Bahamas.”

Norwegian Cruise Line

The cruise line announced that it will be delivering relief supplies donated by Norwegian Cruise Line and the City of Miami to the Bahamas this week. It’s also donating $1 million to the non-profit relief organization All Hands and Hearts “to begin an immediate short-term response,” and will be matching donations dollar for dollar to assist with rebuilding efforts.

Before Warren Buffett made his fortune, he took a job without asking what the salary was—here's why

Berkshire Hathaway chairman and CEO Warren Buffett believes in working with people you respect.

“Try to work for whomever you admire most,” the investing legend told author Gillian Zoe Segal in an interview for her 2015 book, “Getting There: A Book of Mentors.” “It won’t necessarily be the job that you’ll have 10 years later, but you’ll have the opportunity to pick up so much as you go along.”

It’s advice that served him well: When he was starting his career, well before he made his billions, Buffett took a job with his mentor and hero, Benjamin Graham, without even asking about the salary. “I found that out at the end of the month when I got my paycheck,” he told Segal.

The decision paid off, career-wise. Buffett, who was one of Graham’s students at Columbia Business School, says that his former professor largely shaped his career and investment philosophy.

Sallie Krawcheck: This is the ideal amount of money you should invest

Don’t wait to invest your money, advises Ellevest co-founder and CEO Sallie Krawcheck. But you don’t have to start with that much right away: “I know it’s a lot, so start with 1%, start with 2%.” Failing to invest is like letting money fall out of your wallet every day, she explains. But if you put your money to work in a diversified portfolio, the returns have historically been about 6%. And, if you invest in equities, or stocks, “it’s been about a 9.5% annualized returns,” Krawcheck says.

Sallie Krawcheck: This is the ideal amount of money you should invest

Don’t wait to invest your money, advises Ellevest co-founder and CEO Sallie Krawcheck.

“Just do the damn thing,” she tells CNBC Make It. “There’s a conception out there: Oh, I have to have $100,000 to invest or $50,000 or $10,000. Just start where you are. ”

The ultimate goal, she says, “is to be saving and investing 20% of your take home pay.” But you don’t have to start with that much right away: “I know it’s a lot, so start with 1%, start with 2%.” Then, aim to gradually increase that amount over time.

Failing to invest is like letting money fall out of your wallet every day, she explains. When you keep money in a regular savings account, your annualized return is tiny — most people earn far less than 2% on their savings accounts. But if you put your money to work in a diversified portfolio, the returns have historically been about 6%.

And, if you invest in equities, or stocks, “it’s been about a 9.5% annualized returns,” Krawcheck says. Stocks come with more risk than bonds and cash but have the potential for higher returns. Whether you choose to invest in a diversified portfolio or stocks, the returns they can offer “is a lot more than the close-to-nothing that you get from saving — and the nothing that you get from spending,” she says.

Billionaire Warren Buffett just turned 89—here are 6 pieces of wisdom from the investing legend

Berkshire Hathaway CEO and self-made billionaire Warren Buffett turned 89 on Friday, August 30. He’s also celebrating his 13th wedding anniversary with his wife, Astrid. In honor of the Oracle of Omaha’s big day, CNBC Make It rounded up seven of his best pieces of life advice.

Marry the right person

Buffett made his fortune through smart investing, but if you ask him about the most important decision he ever made, it would have nothing to do with money. The biggest decision of your life, Buffett says, is who you choose to marry. “You want to associate with people who are the kind of person you’d like to be. You’ll move in that direction,” he said during a 2017 conversation with Bill Gates. “And the most important person by far in that respect is your spouse. I can’t overemphasize how important that is.” It’s advice he’s been giving for years. As he said at the 2009 Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting: “Marry the right person. I’m serious about that. It will make more difference in your life. It will change your aspirations, all kinds of things.”

Invest in yourself

“By far the best investment you can make is in yourself,” Buffett told Yahoo Finance editor-in-chief Andy Serwer earlier this year. First, “learn to communicate better both in writing and in person. ” Honing that skill can increase your value by at least 50%, he said in a Facebook video posted in 2018. Next, take care of your body and mind — especially when you’re young. “If I gave you a car, and it’d be the only car you get the rest of your life, you would take care of it like you can’t believe. Any scratch, you’d fix that moment, you’d read the owner’s manual, you’d keep a garage and do all these things,” he said. “You get exactly one mind and one body in this world, and you can’t start taking care of it when you’re 50. By that time, you’ll rust it out if you haven’t done anything.”

By far the best investment you can make is in yourself. Warren Buffett Berkshire Hathaway CEO

Associate yourself with ‘high-grade people’

Who you associate with matters, Buffett told author Gillian Zoe Segal in an interview for her 2015 book, “Getting There: A Book of Mentors.” “One of the best things you can do in life is to surround yourself with people who are better than you are,” he said. If you’re around what he calls “high-grade people,” you’ll start acting more like them. Conversely, “If you hang around with people who behave worse than you, pretty soon you’ll start being pulled in that direction. That’s just the way it seems to work.”

Work for people you respect

“Try to work for whomever you admire most,” Buffett told Segal. “It won’t necessarily be the job that you’ll have 10 years later, but you’ll have the opportunity to pick up so much as you go along.” While salary is an important factor when thinking about your career, “You don’t want to take a job just for the money,” said Buffett. He once accepted a job with his mentor and hero, Benjamin Graham, without even asking about the salary. “I found that out at the end of the month when I got my paycheck,” he said.

Ignore the noise

Investing can get emotional, and it doesn’t help that you can see how you’re doing throughout the day by checking a stock ticker or turning on the news. But no one can be certain which way the financial markets are going to move. The best strategy, even when the market seems to be tanking, is to keep a level head and stay the course, Buffett says. “I don’t pay any attention to what economists say, frankly,” he said in 2016. “If you look at the whole history of [economists], they don’t make a lot of money buying and selling stocks, but people who buy and sell stocks listen to them. I have a little trouble with that.”

Warren Buffett: Developing this skill can make ‘a major difference in your future earning power’

Warren Buffett: Developing this skill can make 'a major difference in your future earning power'

That’s because, “what’s really essential is being able to get others to follow your ideas,” the Berkshire Hathaway chairman and CEO told Segal. “If you’re a salesperson, you want people to follow your advice. If you’re a management leader, you want them to follow you in business.”

Honing this skill could even increase your worth by 50%, Buffett said in a video posted on LinkedIn last year .

“A relatively modest improvement can make a major difference in your future earning power, as well as in many other aspects of your life,” he told Gillian Zoe Segal in an interview for her 2015 book, “Getting There: A Book of Mentors.”

If you want to get ahead, focus on your communication skills, billionaire investor Warren Buffett advises.

What’s really essential is being able to get others to follow your ideas.

Communication isn’t something that came naturally to Buffett. “Up until the age of 20, I was absolutely unable to speak in public,” he told Segal. “Just the thought of it made me physically ill.” When he was at Columbia Business School, he decided to do something about it and paid $100 to take a Dale Carnegie public speaking course.

The class met once a week for a couple of months, but Buffett continued to practice public speaking even after it ended. “As soon as the course was over, I went to the University of Omaha and said, ‘I want to start teaching,'” he recalled. “I knew that if I did not speak in front of people quickly I would lapse back to where I’d started. I just kept doing it, and now you can’t stop me from talking!”

To this day, the 89-year-old considers that $100 class one of the best investments he’s ever made.

“The impact that class had on my life was huge,” said Buffett.

He doesn’t have his diploma from the University of Nebraska or Columbia on display in his office, but he does have the Dale Carnegie graduation certificate visible. It “gave me the most important degree I have,” he said, adding: “It’s certainly had the biggest impact in terms of my subsequent success.”

Kobe Bryant shares the No. 1 lesson he learned from Oprah, Tim Cook and other successful people

Kobe Bryant doesn’t hesitate to reach out to other successful people. “What I love doing is cold-calling people,” the former NBA star told CNBC in 2016. “What did you read? What did you learn? How did you learn it? Those are the questions. ”

He’s learned a lot from three people in particular, he told Alex Rodriguez and Dan Katz on a 2018 episode of “The Corp”: media mogul Oprah Winfrey, Apple CEO Tim Cook and Nike CEO Mark Parker.

“Those three are the biggest ones that have had the most influence in what I’m currently building,” said Bryant, who retired from basketball in 2016 and is now focusing on growing his production company Granity Studios.

The key takeaway from his conversations with Winfrey, Cook and Parker is that even the most successful people trip up: “We tend to look at them and say, OK, they don’t make mistakes. They don’t make bad decisions. That couldn’t be any further from the truth. ”

Bryant heard about some of Winfrey’s missteps right before creating Granity. “When I had the idea of first starting a studio, the first person I called was Oprah Winfrey,” because she founded her own production company, Harpo Studios, in 1986, he recalled.

“We sat on the phone for about an hour and a half, two hours — went through the history of building Harpo and the things that she felt she did well and the things she felt like she didn’t do so well,” Bryant said. “She walked me through her journey to help me on mine.”

Talking with Cook and Parker reiterated that “we all make mistakes,” said Bryant. “We all make decisions. And you just continue to plow forward. You continue to figure it out.”

Here's how much more money you'd have if you delayed retirement until 70, according to Stanford researchers

A report from the Stanford Center on Longevity and Society of Actuaries suggests that the typical American would benefit from a later retirement age. After analyzing 292 different retirement income strategies, the research team identified the best way for most people to withdraw their money in retirement: It’s called the “spend safely in retirement strategy” (SSiRS) and involves delaying Social Security payments until age 70, which could mean working longer. “Delaying retirement, even if for a few years, can significantly increase the eventual retirement income,” the report notes. To show you just how powerful it can be, the research team ran the numbers. In one example, a hypothetical, 62-year-old middle-income couple earns a combined $100,000 and has $350,000 in retirement savings.

Delaying retirement, even if for a few years, can significantly increase the eventual retirement income. “Viability of the Spend Safely in Retirement Strategy” report

The researchers calculated what the couple’s retirement income would look like under five different scenarios: retiring completely at 62, working part-time until 66 (their Social Security full retirement age), working full-time until 66, working part-time until age 70 and working full-time until age 70. The longer the couple waits to start Social Security benefits and drawing down their retirement income, the greater their income in retirement will be:

The amounts shown are in today’s dollars, not adjusted for inflation. For the full-time working scenarios, the report assumes the couple is contributing 10% of their income to their retirement savings each year until they retire. For the part-time working scenarios, the report assumes the couple doesn’t make any additional contributions to their retirement savings during this time (they live off their part-time income and delay Social Security). As the chart shows, if the couple retired at 62, their annual retirement income (including Social Security benefits and the amount they draw down from their retirement savings) would be $37,585. If they worked full-time until age 70, their annual income would be nearly double: $70,755. The researchers assume they’re withdrawing between 2.8% and 3.6% of their retirement savings each year, percentages they determined using the same methodology the IRS uses for the required minimum distribution (the IRS requires you to make minimum withdrawals from your retirement savings starting at age 70 ½, known as the required minimum distribution, or RMD). Even if the couple waited until 66 to retire — and worked either part- or full-time — they’d have a much bigger income than if they settled down at 62. Next, the research team looked at “replacement ratio,” which is your income after retirement, divided by your income before retirement. “Financial advisors say you need to replace 70%-80% of your pre-retirement pay to be comfortable,” Steve Vernon, co-author of the report, tells CNBC Make It. “So we converted the dollar amounts of retirement income into a replacement rate.” Not surprisingly, delaying retirement results in much more favorable replacement rates:

If the couple retired at 62, their replacement rate would be 38%, “far lower than the recommended 70%-80%,” Vernon notes. The only scenario in which the couple gets to the recommended rate is if they work full-time until age 70. As the report notes, “Most older workers will fall short of commonly recommended retirement income targets, unless they can work in some manner into their late 60s or 70s. Otherwise, they might need to learn how to live on reduced spendable income compared to their working years.” Ultimately, everyone’s scenario is different, and people choose to retire at all different times in their lives. “There is no perfect retirement income strategy,” Vernon says. The report, he adds, is trying to help people make an informed decision about when to retire and how to deploy their retirement savings. Not all experts agree that 70 is the “new retirement age.” “Let’s do the reality check on retiring at 70,” David Bach, bestselling author of “The Automatic Millionaire,” tells CNBC Make It. “The average person in America retires at 62, certainly before 65.” There are a few reasons for this, he says: health issues, less energy or being forced out of the job. “I’m not against working until you’re 70,” says Bach. “If you love what you’re doing and you can keep up until you’re 70, fantastic. I know people who work in their 80s. Great, if you can. … But don’t assume that you’ve got an extra decade right now to save money because somebody else told you 70 is the new 60.” Rather than planning on working longer to set yourself up for your golden years, start saving more money now, he says: “The way you get the best return on retirement — I call this ROR — is you save, save, save, save, save. … And you retire in your early 60s, able to afford it, and then you really go have the best years of your life.” Don’t miss: Stanford analyzed 292 retirement strategies to determine the best one—here’s how it works Like this story?
