Eric Schmidt is the executive chairman of one of the world's most successful tech companies. That kind of position comes with a whole lotta perks, and plenty of money.
Schmidt was a wealthy man before he had even heard of Google. He had worked at Bell Labs and had leadership positions at Sun Microsystems and Novell. His stock options and $100 million equity award from when he stepped down as CEO of Google added to his wealth too.
He's now worth $8.3 billion, and is one of the wealthiest people in the world, so it's only natural that he got an epic lifestyle to go along with it. Here are some of the luxuries Schmidt enjoys:
This is Schmidt's $20 million Gulfstream V.
In May, he was able to sell off his 255-foot superyacht, the "Lone Ranger," for an estimated $14 million.
Originally an expeditionary vessel, the ship was converted into a yacht in the mid-1990s.
Schmidt still has the 195-foot "Oasis," a $72 million yacht that he charters out to those willing to pay $400,000 for a vacation.
And when he just wants to get around town, Schmidt makes up for the thousands of gallons of fuel burned by his yacht and jet by driving a Toyota Prius.
His mansion in Montecito, California is about as exclusive as you can get.
He bought it from comedian and entertainer Ellen DeGeneres for $20 million back in 2007.
And then there's his new penthouse in New York City, which is pretty amazing as well.
For $15 million dollars, he got wonderful views and an open design...
... along with a rooftop terrace, according to the penthouse's floor plan.
The penthouse was prominently featured in "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps."
As chairman of the company that controls one of largest global video platforms (Google owns YouTube), Schmidt gets to meet world sensations like Psy on a regular basis.
Schmidt also has a close relationship with President Obama. He served as an informal advisor and as a major donor during the President's first presidential run and currently serves on the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology.
Schmidt is even a power-player among the eccentric billionaire crowd. He has attended the Bilderberg Group's annual meetings since 2011. Their private conferences bring in 120-150 of the world's most influential people to discuss the biggest global trends. The Bilderberg Hotel is the location of the first meeting of the Bilderberg Group.
That influence is probably what earned him a visit to one of North Korea's top computer research labs in January of this year:

Is Escorting ethical? Are there moral issues involved? There is an argument for and against Is being classified as acceptable behaviour and those that still frown on it being labelled a legitimate service. But if you approach it differently, is there anything unethical about putting food on the table, paying the bills and clothing your children?
