For almost 40 years, Tony has been obsessed with learning the answer to what makes a difference in quality of people’s lives. And he’s worked with more than 50 million people from every walk of life - from some of the world’s most powerful leaders to individuals who have struggled to overcome dire circumstances.

Tony doesn’t teach people just to solve their problems, he helps them solve what caused the problems in the first place - digging into their fundamental beliefs, values and goals. Because that’s where the breakthrough happens.

In this new series of the Tony Robbins Podcast, we are going to be taking you to events like Date with Destiny, UPW and Business Mastery - where you’ll have a front row seat to some of these life-changing breakthroughs.

In this episode, you are going to hear Tony work with Aly. For a lifetime, Aly was fed toxic thoughts from her mother - thoughts she allowed control her life. And as a result, she’s struggled with intimacy, and has moved from relationship to relationship, encountering the same problems.

Tony works with Aly to answer her fundamentally unquestioned thoughts - why she believes certain things, why she expects certain things, and why she behaves in certain ways. He helps her see that her suffering doesn’t just come from the past - it comes from her choice to allow certain beliefs to guide her life. And that if she wants to shift out of pain and loneliness, it’s time to let go of those old thoughts and start living in a way that opens her up to true love.

In this episode of the Tony Robbins Podcast we’re continuing our Business Mastery Panelist series with an exclusive interview between Tony and Iqram Magdon-Ismail, the co-founder of the digital payment platform, Venmo.

In case you’re not familiar with Venmo, the premise is simple: you connect the app to your checking account and you can send and receive payments to anyone with just a tap and a swipe of your smartphone. It’s the ideal solution for splitting bills and paying your friends back - especially for anyone who doesn’t like carrying around cash. Venmo makes exchanging money incredibly simple, and it takes the awkwardness out of asking someone to pay you back. Paying for everything from cab rides to dinners to rent and utilities is streamlined.

Venmo was acquired by Braintree in 2012 for $26.2 million, which in turn sold to PayPal for $800 million. And now, Venmo processes more than $6.8 billion in payments per quarter.

Yet as ubiquitous as Venmo is today, it wasn’t an easy path to success. Iqram and his co-founder Andrew Kortina endured countless obstacles in their early years, struggling to raise capital and almost closing their doors at one point.

In this episode, Tony talks to Iqram about the evolution of Venmo, from idea to fruition to acquisition, and how they were able to persevere through the darkest periods. They discuss the importance of learning to embrace criticism, creating your company’s story, and using the no’s to refine your approach to find that pivotal yes.

If you’re familiar with Tony’s renowned business seminar - Business Mastery, then you know it’s nothing like your average business growth conference. Business Mastery is 5-day immersive seminar where you go to build a platform for explosive growth. Tony takes you on a deep dive into the business growth strategies, systems and resources that you need to take your business to the next level. You learn the innovative strategies that industry leaders like Apple, Zappos and Facebook have used to build massive success. You address the critical factors impacting your own business and learn how you can refocus and realign with a winning business strategy and psychology to compete and innovate in any economy. Because when it comes to business, it shouldn’t be about surviving, it should be about thriving – having absolute mastery, ownership of purpose, and fulfillment like no other.

In this episodes, we’re taking you to a special segment within Business Mastery, where Tony holds a panel discussion with leaders behind today’s fastest growing companies. And this time, you’re going to hear from Jonas Kjellberg: serial entrepreneur, author, investor and most notably – the co-creator of Skype.

Jonas is the ultimate game changer. He’s driven by a deep-seeded passion to shake up the status quo. While others may focus on changing one variable at a time, Jonas has his sights set on changing as many variables as possible. This mindset has led him to take a number of risks and make a lot of big bets – some of which failed spectacularly, and some of which became massive successes like Skype.

Tony and Jonas talk about the evolution of Skype, and how it became one of the internet’s most revolutionary businesses, disrupting the telecommunications sector in a way no one saw coming. Jonas reveals what he has learned from his past failures, and the key lessons he’s taken with him when it comes to eliminating costs, customer acquisition, why every company should be ready to embrace change and pivot on a dime.

In this episode of The Tony Robbins Podcast, our host Ana is diving into artificial intelligence and machine learning - phrases that are getting tossed around a lot these days - but are shrouded in mystery and misunderstanding.

Helping demystify the hype and break down the pragmatic benefits of AI is Ben Lamm. Ben is the CEO of Hypergiant - a Dallas-based startup that Tony himself invested in! They’re working with big brands and businesses to bring in technology to solve real business problems. For example, Hypergiant recently teamed up with TGI Friday’s to create an AI-powered mixologist, appropriately dubbed Flanagan. Flanagan offers the customers the experience of personalized drink recommendations while simultaneously collecting more data about their preferences. It’s a win-win that enhances customer connection, and ultimately, customer loyalty.

Ana talks with Ben about these types of practical applications of artificial intelligence and machine learning, and we explore other opportunities for businesses to leverage the tech to best meet their customers’ needs. Because most industries are using outdated practices. And as we enter this new era of AI solutions, it’s time to initiate change and encourage your team to start thinking forward.

Last fall, eight winners of Shopify’s Build a Bigger Business competition were flown to Tony’s Fiji resort Namale for both group and one-on-one coaching sessions with him. One of the winners was an entrepreneur that Tony personally selected from the entrants – Michelle Cordeiro Grant: the founder of Lively, a brand that is fusing athleisure and lingerie to bring comfort and style to women’s intimates.

Michelle began her career with Federated Merchandising Group, creating brands and product for one of the world's largest retailers. Grant instantly fell in love with the entire process from concept to customer, and realized that her passion was in supporting, creating and developing amazing brands and products.

Grant spent the tenure of her career with the industry leaders – Federated, VF Corporation and Limited Brands/ Victoria's Secret. Her work at Federated focused on the development of private label brands and at VFC, Grant was responsible for launching global brands like Nautica Women’s Sportswear. Seeing the shift in the market towards e-commerce, Grant moved to Victoria’s Secret where she focused on merchandising and strategy for VS's digital arm. Once Grant realized she wanted to create her own brand, she spent a number of years at a thriving startup, Thrillist Media Group, overseeing their commerce division. By working for top retailers, traveling the globe to meet world class manufacturers and spending a couple years with an incredible startup, Grant learned the importance of creating a strong brand affinity, crafting a quality product and building a dynamic team.

While working with Victoria's Secret, she learned that this $13B lingerie category, in the US alone, was dominated by this one brand, with one point of view. Grant was inspired to create a completely new experience for the category – one she coined Leisurée – and so LIVELY was born.


In this episode of the Tony Robbins Podcast, Michelle sits down with our host, Ana, to talk about her experience with Tony, and the key insights that she took from this session and put to work in her business.

 

We hear what it’s been like for Michelle to build the Lively brand. We learn how she has strategically leveraged social media, curated an extraordinary customer experience, and created company ethos that serves as their north star when it comes to their most important business decisions. We learn just how Michelle intends to spread her message of body positivity and community all while bringing her customers a brand that makes them look, feel and live confidently.

What do the greatest leaders of all time have in common? You may think it comes down to a certain sense of charisma or some inhuman level of talent - because that’s what we’ve all been conditioned to think defines a leader. But superstars aren’t the same thing as super leaders. In fact, the greatest leaders often fly under the radar and are actually easy to miss.

In this episode of the Tony Robbins Podcast, you’ll be hearing from renowned leadership expert and bestselling author, Sam Walker.

A former reporter, sports columnist and sports editor, Sam founded The Wall Street Journal’s prizewinning daily sports coverage. And most recently, helped launch the Journal’s leadership column. He is the author of Fantasyland, a bestselling account of his time in Tout Wars, America’s top fantasy-baseball expert competition (of which he is a two-time champion). And in his latest book – The Captain Class – Sam profiles the greatest teams in history and identifies the secret sauce that drove these unconventional men and women to achieve massive success.  

Sam and our host, Ana Yoerg, do a deep dive into the behavioral and psychological traits of these individuals and how they have been the driving force behind some of the most legendary teams in history. They discuss the myths about leadership – and how to really identify and cultivate the leaders you see in your own organization. Because it isn’t always obvious. In fact, it rarely is. And as Sam reveals, once you do find these individuals, you need to understand how to effectively partner with them so that they assume a more autonomous role that can ultimately lead the entire team to success.

In this episode of the Tony Robbins Podcast, we’re wrapping up our Business Mastery Panelists series with a woman who changed the way millions of people shop, and the way million of women get ready – Alexandra Wilkis Wilson.

Wilkis Wilson was one of the co-founders of Gilt Groupe - the members-only flash sale site for the most coveted fashion brands. She also served as CEO of Glamsquad, the NYC-based startup that offers on-demand hair and makeup services. And she even started a mobile makeover service called Fitz that helped customers give their wardrobe a fresh start. It’s fashion and beauty - revolutionized.

And at Business Mastery, Tony spoke to Alexandra about each of these companies and how she helped build them into businesses that thrive - even during economic winters. They dig into the secret behind Gilt’s growth, how critical it is to build trust, but still move quickly, and why women have unique advantages when it comes to customer acquisition strategy.

In this episode, we are continuing our Inside Business Mastery series with an exclusive interview between Tony and John Zimmer: the co-founder and president of the massively popular ride-sharing service Lyft.

2017 was a banner year for Lyft. The San Francisco-based company expanded its coverage to 95% of the United States. And the number of rides per year reached a staggering 375.5 million, which is particularly impressive when you consider that the number was just 162.5 million in 2015.

Part of that explosive growth can credited towards gaining more market share from its biggest competitor. When customers saw Lyft’s values-first, passion over profits motives, many opted out of the dominant ride-sharing platform to start supporting the company with a social purpose. But for Zimmer, it’s not about unseating the competition. It’s about becoming a viable alternative to your own car, and ultimately, reinventing the entire transportation landscape.

Tony and John dive into John’s roots in the hospitality industry, the big problem with the existing transportation infrastructure, and how he’s on a mission to create a better service for everyone. Because disrupting the transportation industry is just the beginning - Lyft is set to pave a new path forward when it comes to how we see our vehicles, how we share rides, and how we can ultimately create a new network of transportation that is all about efficiency.

What have you been taught about pleasure? What have you learned about sexual connection? Does the very thought of answering those questions make you uncomfortable?

 

In this episode of the Tony Robbins Podcast, our host, Ana Yoerg, is sitting down with renowned sexologist, Jaiya, and her partner, Ian. Jaiya is the author of Red Hot Touch and Founder of New World Sex Education - a company dedicated to using education to help men and women get the sex lives they’ve always wanted. And her mission is to help unleash erotic ecstasy and shift the cultural view of sexuality from being something that is bad, wrong or shameful to something that is seen as healthy and worth cultivating, and even worth celebrating. You may have seen Jaiya on The Doctors, GMA, Nightline or CNN. And she’s been a guest speaker at Tony’s Platinum Partner events.

 

And today - we’re exploring the ultimate language of connection, passion and sexual satisfaction - which Jaiya refers to as The Erotic Blueprint. Jaiya created the Erotic Blueprint framework to help you discover your personal map of sexual arousal and how you can understand yourself and your partner on a deeper level than ever before. Because it’s not just about being able to communicate what you need, it’s about speaking the same language as your partner, and learning how to honor and fulfill their needs. This is the path to connection. And it’s the way to opening up new possibility for seduction, enticement and a deeper level of intimacy than you’ve ever experienced before.

Did you know that a staggering 96% of businesses will fail over a 10-year period of time? And as for the remaining 4%, it does not necessarily mean they succeed, it means that they’ve survived.

We all want to have healthy habits. Whether that means eating right, working efficiently, exercising or taking care of yourself emotionally - healthy habits help us lead happier lives. But how do you adopt healthy habits? How do you step out of the struggle and make them part of your DNA? After all - we’re all wired completely differently and respond to inner and outer expectations in our own ways. So what is the solution that will work for you?

In this episode of the Tony Robbins Podcast, our host, Ana Yoerg, sits down with best-selling author and happiness expert, Gretchen Rubin.

Gretchen has written four New York Times best-selling books, including: The Four Tendencies, Better than Before, Happier at Home and The Happiness Project. Her books have sold more than 3 million copies worldwide. She hosts an award-winning podcast, “Happier with Gretchen Rubin,” where she discusses happiness and forming good habits with her sister, Elizabeth Craft. And she is widely regarded as the foremost authority when it comes to habits, human nature and happiness.

Gretchen maintains that people fall under 1 of 4 behavioral tendencies - the upholder, the obliger, the questioner or the rebel. It’s about how we respond to both inner and outer expectations. Do you embrace the rules? Do you resist? What compels you? What frustrates you?

Understanding your tendency towards expectations can help you manage your life in a more insightful, productive way. And in this episode, she distills complex psychological tendencies into habit-forming strategies that really work for the individual. So you can make better decisions, meet deadlines, engage more effectively, and even find a better way of understanding other people’s perspectives – allowing you to find more effective ways of communicating, connecting and finding happiness.

What is an extraordinary quality of life?

The answer to that question is going to be different for every single person - because we all have different perspectives and different values. But regardless of what your answer is - if you want to create that magnificent life, then you must master two skills: the science of achievement and the art of fulfillment.

In this special episode, we’re bringing you to the James Altucher Show. James is an entrepreneur, investor and author of 11 books including the WSJ best-seller “Choose Yourself!”. He has started and sold several companies for eight figure exits, and has also run venture capital funds, hedge funds, and angel funds.

Tony stopped by The James Altucher show to talk about what it really means to take what you envision and make it real. They discuss the science of building wealth and the tactical investment strategies you can implement to create financial abundance. They uncover the most efficient ways to achieve professional success. And they discuss why it’s so critical to “find your why” when you make any decision in life – especially when it comes to how you’re going to live. Because there’s no worse fate than to achieve everything but not be happy.

So what does fulfillment look like to you? How can you start living life on your terms? That’s exactly what this episode will get you focused on.

There are two types of people - those that see what they want, and those that see what stands in the way of what they want. Which type of person are you?

This is just one of the questions that leadership expert Simon Sinek challenges you to get real about. Because when it comes to making real change in your life - you have to start with yourself.

Where is the economy is today – is it growing? Flat? Declining?

What about YOUR economy – your personal investments, your nest egg? How safe is it, and how likely it is to grow at the rate you want it to? When you think about your current investments, how do you feel? Secure, or are you half-panicked?

For many, the recession of 2008 still lingers. Those who suffered are waiting, white-knuckled, holding on to their portfolios and still wondering what to do next. We have, after all, been in one of the longest bull markets in history and bull markets always come to an end at some point. So how do you protect yourself from the possibility of another 2008? And how can you start to take a more proactive, confident approach to your portfolio?

When Tony wrote Money Master the Game, he had the unique privilege of sitting down with some of the most successful, masterful investors and financial gurus of all time - including the legendary Ray Dalio.

Ray founded the investment management firm Bridgewater Associates in 1975 out of his two-bedroom New York City apartment. Four decades later, Bridgewater has grown to be the largest hedge fund in the world, managing over 160 billion dollars, and making more money for its investors than any other hedge fund in history. Dalio himself has appeared on the Time 100 list of the most influential people in the world, as well as the Bloomberg Markets list of the 50 most influential people. And in Money Master the Game, Ray explains just what it means to create a balanced portfolio and even revealed the exact percentages of a simple portfolio that will protect you from the dips and even the dives in the market.

But now - as Ray nears retirement, he has made the decision to share even more of the systems and strategies that have brought him such massive success in his deeply personal book Principles: Life & Work.

Tony recently sat down with Ray to discuss just why Ray felt so inclined to share his wisdom with the world and why Principles is an absolute must-read for everyone - whether you’re in the financial industry or not. And in this episode of the podcast, you will hear from Tony and Ray as they discuss the evolution of Ray’s career, the catastrophic mistakes he made that almost destroyed everything he built, and how the lowest points in his life taught him his biggest lessons. You’ll also hear Tony and Ray discuss their personal beliefs about creating a successful and productive workplace culture, and why everyone should strive to create a meritocracy and invoke “radical honesty” in their lives.

“Be a man.” “Man up.” “Start acting like a man.” These are things we hear all the time – in the locker room, in the media, in our own homes. We’ve been conditioned to adopt certain beliefs about what “masculinity” is, and we routinely force those ideals and expectations upon others, and upon ourselves. But what has this cost us?

In this episode, Tony’s editorial director, Ana Yoerg, sits down with entrepreneur, performance coach and host of a top-ranked podcast, Lewis Howes.

By all accounts, Lewis had always fit the cultural ideal of what a masculine man should be. He was a two-sport All-American who went on to play football professionally. He built his podcast, “The School of Greatness” into a global phenomenon. And he was becoming financially and professionally successful beyond his wildest dreams. But his soon realized that his whole identity was built on misguided beliefs about what “masculinity” was: dangerous, false ideas learned from teammates and coaches in locker rooms and stereotypes in the media. And like so many men, Lewis grew up to be angry, frustrated and always chasing something that was never enough.

So at 30 years old, Lewis began a personal journey to shed the many masks that he and so many other men wear, and to discover who he is at his core. He sought advice from some of the world’s best psychologists, doctors and household names like Tony Robbins himself. And he documented everything that he learned in his latest book – The Mask of Masculinity: How Men Can Embrace Vulnerability, Create Strong Relationships, and Live Their Fullest Lives.

In this episode, you will hear Lewis discuss the ultimate emptiness of the Material Mask and the man who chases wealth above all things. You will hear him talk about the cowering vulnerability that hides behind the Stoic Masks of men who never show real emotion; and the destructiveness of the Invincible and Aggressive Masks worn by men who take insane risks or can never back down from a fight. And you will learn about Lewis’s own struggles with the masks he has worn, and how he has learned how to break through the walls that held them back so he could truly find himself, and ultimately, how he could find true happiness.

Why do people cheat? Even those in happy marriages? And what can affairs help us understand about intimacy?

We tend to think that the act of infidelity is the ultimate betrayal. We judge those who commit transgressions. We shroud them in shame. We dismiss them, label them, categorize them as “cheaters.” And largely, we do so, without a complete understanding of infidelity.

In this episode of the podcast, Tony sits down with world-renowned couples therapist and relationship expert, Esther Perel, to discuss what makes relationships work, what makes them fall apart - and what we aren’t understanding about infidelity.

Esther is recognized as one of today’s most insightful and provocative voices on personal and professional relationships. A celebrated couples therapist who has helmed a private practice in New York City since 1983, she has over three decades experience navigating the intricacies of love and desire. Her international bestseller Mating in Captivity has been translated into twenty-six languages. Perel is a dynamic and provocative speaker on the international stage, with two critically praised TED talks that have reached over 17 million viewers. She has consulted on the Golden Globe-winning Showtime series The Affair and is also Executive Producer and host of the Audible Original Series “Where Should We Begin?”, in which she broadcasts intimate one-off counseling sessions with real-life couples. Perel has been featured in publications across five continents, including the New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, Le Monde, The Guardian, The New Yorker, and Vogue. She is also a frequent guest on radio and television shows, including NPR’s Brian Lehrer Show, Oprah, The Today Show, Dr. Oz, and The Colbert Report.

Over the past ten years, Esther has traveled the world, working closely with hundreds of couples who are struggling to cope with infidelity. She has seen the devastation such betrayal can cause. And she drew upon these experiences, her research and her expertise to write her latest book: The State of Affairs, where she reveals why even happy people cheat and why we shame those who stay with partners who have been unfaithful.

Why do people cheat? Even those in happy marriages? And what can affairs help us understand about intimacy?

We tend to think that the act of infidelity is the ultimate betrayal. We judge those who commit transgressions. We shroud them in shame. We dismiss them, label them, categorize them as “cheaters.” And largely, we do so, without a complete understanding of infidelity.

In this episode of the podcast, Tony sits down with world-renowned couples therapist and relationship expert, Esther Perel, to discuss what makes relationships work, what makes them fall apart - and what we aren’t understanding about infidelity.

Esther is recognized as one of today’s most insightful and provocative voices on personal and professional relationships. A celebrated couples therapist who has helmed a private practice in New York City since 1983, she has over three decades experience navigating the intricacies of love and desire. Her international bestseller Mating in Captivity has been translated into twenty-six languages. Perel is a dynamic and provocative speaker on the international stage, with two critically praised TED talks that have reached over 17 million viewers. She has consulted on the Golden Globe-winning Showtime series The Affair and is also Executive Producer and host of the Audible Original Series “Where Should We Begin?”, in which she broadcasts intimate one-off counseling sessions with real-life couples. Perel has been featured in publications across five continents, including the New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, Le Monde, The Guardian, The New Yorker, and Vogue. She is also a frequent guest on radio and television shows, including NPR’s Brian Lehrer Show, Oprah, The Today Show, Dr. Oz, and The Colbert Report.

Over the past ten years, Esther has traveled the world, working closely with hundreds of couples who are struggling to cope with infidelity. She has seen the devastation such betrayal can cause. And she drew upon these experiences, her research and her expertise to write her latest book: The State of Affairs, where she reveals why even happy people cheat and why we shame those who stay with partners who have been unfaithful.

Why do certain experiences influence us so strongly? How can even the most fleeting moments impact us in way that we remember them for years? And how can we intentionally create such experiences and moments to enrich and enhance our lives?

In this episode of the Tony Robbins, you’ll hear from bestselling author, speaker and professor – Dan Heath. Dan is a senior fellow at Duke University’s CASE center, which supports entrepreneurs working for the social good. Dan and his brother Chip have written three New York Times bestsellers: Made to Stick, Decisive and Switch – which have sold over 2 million copies worldwide, and have been translated into 33 languages.

Now, in their upcoming book – The Power of Moments – the Heath brothers are revealing the keys to what they call “defining moments” – that is, the most memorable and meaningful experiences in our lives.

When we understand the principles that underlie such moments, we can then learn how to intentionally create experiences that further enrich and enhance both our personal and our professional lives.

Businesses can learn how to create moments that make both customers and employees more loyal and more satisfied. Families can learn how to create more lasting memories together. Teachers can create lesson plans that students will remember for years and years.

Life is a series of moments and experiences. But with the right tools, tactics and insights, you can learn how to create the defining moments that will bring immense meaning to your lives.
