This entire month, we’ve talked about career moves that none of us are too old for. Whether you want to travel and work as a digital nomad, jump into a new industry, or become a consultant, there’s one person we’ve long looked up to to help us answer those questions. Tony Robbins.
Changing His Life at a Young Age
Tony Robbins was only 17 years old when he left his chaotic home and started to work as a janitor and mover on the weekends. Earning just $40 per week, it was a chance encounter with an old acquaintance that led him to the seminar that would change his life.
Spending almost an entire week’s pay to go to a Jim Rohn seminar, Robbins was captivated by Rohn’s message.
After the event, he approached Rohn and asked to work for him. Soon, Robbins became his protege, helping to promote seminars. While working for Rohn, Robbins developed his own high energy, more personalized version and used behavioral psychology as his guide.
He honed his approach on the road holding hundreds of seminars across North America. By the time he was 26, he had a best-selling book.
Helping Individuals and Businesses Succeed
Over the four and a half decades he’s been active, Robbins has empowered more than 50 million people from 100 countries around the world.
If you’ve ever attended a Tony Robbins event or watched one of his many videos, you know that he has an amazing presence. At 6’7”, Robbins towers over the crowd but brings warmth, humor, and transformational experiences in all of his events.
He and his methods have been trusted by some of the most successful people in the world, including Danny Meyer of Shake Shack, Joe Gebbia of AirBNB, Salesforce.com founder Marc Benioff, Serena Williams, Pitbull, and even the Golden State Warriors.
International Best-Selling Author
Robbins is now an author of six international bestselling books including the most recent Life Force. In his latest book, he gets honest about his own health struggles in his 60s. Throughout the book, he takes you through his strategies that can help to maximize your energy and strength, prevent disease, and improve your lifespan. Robbins felt that his own challenges were irreversible, but he experienced first-hand how new regenerative technology could help him heal and make him stronger than ever before.
Global Entrepreneur. Investor. Philanthropist.
Continually honored as one of the leading business leaders in the world, Robbins has spent decades honing his messages and craft. He delights in investing in others’ businesses and watching them grow.
But he also loves to help those around him. With his 1 Billion Meals Challenge, he has helped Feeding America to provide over 850 million meals in the last 7 years. Through his Foundation, he has awarded over 2,000 grants and other resources to help health and human services organizations implement life-changing curriculum in 1700+ correctional facilities.
If you’re looking for a Third Ager who is still on top of his game in the business world, look no further than Tony.
