Despite the scandals that chased him out of the White House, Clinton booked 57 speeches in the first year after he left office.
That year Clinton reportedly earned between $125,000 (£103,000) to $350,000 (£290,000) for each speaking opportunity.
In total, Clinton earned $13.7million (£11million) from this work alone.
While this doesn’t quite make up the deficit he left the White House in, wife Hillary was also earning a decent sum for her writing talents.
Hillary reportedly received $2.9million (£2.4million) that year in an instalment from her $8million (£6.65m) advance for the book Living History.
