Tony and Sage sit down for an intimate fireside chat to personally share what their own experience has been during this time, and also share a message of hope and unity during this unique holiday season. Together they tell us how this is a time to move forward, to create, to be able to step into another dimension of who we are. Because what we get will never make us happy; it’s who we become and what we contribute.
“We are not the manager of our circumstances, we are the creator of our life experience.” – Tony Robbins
About The Fireside Chat Series: In the 1930s and 40s, a time when the country was struggling even more than it is today, we had an amazing leader named FDR. He began doing evening radio programs called “fireside chats,” designed to communicate directly with the American people.
At that time, 90% of people in the U.S at that time had a radio. Today, 96% of people have a cell phone and nearly all have internet access. Instead of being unified and watching all the same things, and having a collective experience, now we're all kind of separated. And we can see division in our culture. We desperately need a form of unity, a form of connection, more humanity and more kindness in the world.
Tony and Sage thought to bring back this time-honored tradition of a fireside chat as a means of unity and compassion. We’re entering the winter season, drawing inward into our homes and into ourselves, reflecting on the hardships and blessings alike this unique year has brought. In this three-part series, you will hear them dispel their hopes and dreams for you this holiday season, as well as share some of Tony’s powerful tools and strategies to not only survive the coming months, but to step up and thrive.
“Let’s create not only some healing here but some real change. … Change is automatic, but progress is not. And so this is a conversation today to see if we can create some progress. … What this is really about is getting to what we can do to tap into unity, and love, and compassion, and connection to one another. What can we do to move forward?” – Tony Robbins
It’s been over three months since the death of George Floyd, the unarmed, 46-year-old black man, who was unconscionably killed by police in broad daylight during an arrest in Minneapolis. Captured on cell-phone video and amplified in the media, the whole world witnessed his horrific death, and it has reignited a centuries-long conversation around race supremacy in the United States and the injustice that African Americans can face.
The aftermath of George Floyd’s death — and combined stacking of others like Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, and most recently the shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wis. — has brought this nation to a threshold. With thousands of people around the world in grief, humanity is speaking loud and clear: enough is enough, the time is now to create real change rooted in our nation’s foundation of ‘justice for all.’ Beyond change, we need progress. As Tony said in the first episode of this special two-part podcast series, change is automatic – but progress is not.
The conversation continues. In this 2-hour episode, Tony hosts a panel of five unique, multi-generational leaders who share their experience of what it is to be Black in America and lend their voice to what we, as a unified society, need to listen to and hear, to unite, to make progress, and ultimately to tap into love, compassion, and our deep connection to one another.
“If love is not yet won, the battle is not yet over.”
– Martin Luther King III
Part 2 Guests:
Charlamagne tha God (Radio show host, author, influencer)
Rev. Jesse Jackson (Civil rights activist, former aide to Martin Luther King, Jr.)
Barbara Becnel (Journalist, film producer, prison reform advocate)
Van Jones (Author, television host)
Derrick Johnson (President and CEO of the NAACP)
“Our hope is to have you panelists share your experiences of what this is all about. What do you want all of us – maybe who have not had these experiences – to know, but also to appreciate. And most importantly, what can we do to make real progress?
It’s really not about pointing fingers here.
What this is really about is getting to what we can do to tap into unity, and love, and compassion, and connection to one another. What can we do to move forward?”
– Tony Robbins
On May 25, George Floyd, an unarmed, 46 year old black man, was unconscionably killed by police in broad daylight during an arrest in Minneapolis. Captured on cell-phone video and amplified in the media, the whole world witnessed his horrific death and it has reignited a centuries-long conversation around racism in the United States and the injustice that African Americans can face at the hands of police and law enforcement.
The aftermath of George Floyd’s death – on top of the stacking of Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Trayvon Martin, and Eric Garner just to name a few other horrific losses – has brought this nation to a threshold. As thousands of people have come together around the world with heavy hearts, humanity is speaking loud and clear: Enough is enough, the time is now to create real, lasting change. Beyond change, we need progress. As you’ll hear Tony say in this episode, change is automatic – but progress is not.
In this 3-hour episode, Tony hosts a historic conversation with ten unique leaders who share their experience of what it is to be black America and lend their voice to what we – as a unified society – need to do at this pivotal moment to collectively unite, make progress, and ultimately tap into love, compassion, and connection to one another.

On March 11, 2020, people all over the world were thrust into a new reality when the coronavirus was declared a global pandemic. It was as if the globe had ground to a halt as businesses closed, schools shuttered, and stay-at-home orders emptied city streets. Thousands of lives have been lost; all lives have been changed.
Over the past two months, despite these uncertain and unprecedented circumstances, there have been shining examples of goodness and triumphs of the human spirit solidifying the fact that we as a species are both adaptable and resilient. Scientists around the globe have aligned their focus to find solutions to this challenge of historic proportions, and groundbreaking discoveries have been made. Everyday, we continue to make progress in quelling the impact of this virus and protecting our loved ones at risk.
Unfortunately, much of the COVID-19 news comes to us clouded by the business of mass media which built momentum selling us a narrative of fear.
In this episode, Tony goes on a journey to uncover the truth about coronavirus with a 7-person panel of highly qualified researchers, an experienced epidemiologist, a Nobel Laureate, and M.D.s testing and treating patients on the frontlines. Together, they reveal the evidence-based research that has come to light and the emerging facts that you’re not hearing in the headlines that are absolutely crucial in shaping decisions about how to move forward.
This is one of the most important interviews that Tony has conducted in his 40+ year career. It reminds us to stand guard at the door of our mind, practice discernment when determining trustworthy sources, and think critically for ourselves in order to stay flexible and maintain the ability to pivot in light of new information – especially when lives depend on it.
Podcast panelists in this episode include:
Business owners are a special breed – determined, resolved. The embodiment of self-reliance and self-determination. But it takes more than just these traits to be successful, especially right now.
In this special bonus episode, you’ll hear the six things that Tony is doing to take charge of his own businesses to defy the odds and emerge from this challenge with certainty and strength.
Have you taken advantage of the stimulus funding that’s available to your small business?
In this episode, Tony and Tyler McBroom – CEO and Managing Partner of CPA firm Measured Results – explains which loan program you should be looking into based on your specific type of business.
And if you’re still wondering how to apply, and what you may be eligible to receive, you’re about to hear everything you need to know, including answers to many common “what if” scenarios.
Note: This episode was originally recorded when the first round of funding was released by the government, but the process still applies to the second round.
In part 2 of this special edition episode, Tony – along with his friend Dr. Peter Diamandis, the Harvard Medical School trained M.D. and executive founder of Singularity University – explore the present and future of COVID-19.
If you haven’t heard Part 1, be sure to listen to it, as Dr. Bob Hariri joined the conversation to provide additional context and clarification of the COVID-19 numbers we’re seeing around the clock in the news.
Today, Tony and Peter speak with Mei Mei Hu and Lou Reese, Co-CEOs of United Biomedical, a company that is now offering an affordable and accurate diagnostic test for COVID-19 through its subsidiary, COVAXX
Their antibody test is different from others, as it can detect not only if you currently have the virus, but also it signals if you’ve ever had the virus, which is crucial in determining the true rate of mortality associated with COVID-19 – and whether people are immune and therefore able to stop isolating, and go back to work.
Lou and Mei Mei’s team at COVAXX is also working on a breakthrough alternative option to a traditional vaccine for coronavirus, which you’ll hear discussed in the last half of the episode.
If you are like many people, you’re trying to make sense of all the information about coronavirus that is being shared 24 hours a day on television, headline news, and across social media channels around the world.
It’s a lot to keep up with and comprehend as new numbers and statistics about COVID-19 are being broadcast around the clock. In this episode, we’re bringing you two long-time, leading physicians to provide context and clarification of the facts.
Dr. Peter Diamandis and Dr. Bob Hariri will break down the coronavirus data you’re seeing and hearing from the media. Dr. Hariri, a surgeon, biomedical scientist and serial entrepreneur in biomedical technology will also share some of his team’s breakthroughs in a stem cell treatment that could prove to be an effective solution for COVID-19.
This interview was recorded Thursday, April 9.
There’s a lot that’s unknown in this economic climate. Fear and panic are taking over, and it’s hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel – especially for small business owners, who are being faced with many tough decisions.
But instead of letting fear consume you, now is the time to draw upon your conviction and leadership – to draw upon your training and preparation. When this is over, there will be those who squandered it, and there will be those who seized the opportunity present in this challenge – who stepped up with creativity and innovation, seeking to add as much value as possible to their clients.
In this episode, we are bringing you interviews from Tony’s top business partners and speakers from his Business Mastery event, who will be sharing their advice on how small business owners can not just survive in this climate, but thrive – now and in the future.
You’ll also hear from Tony on how you, as a leader, can manage your mindset and create momentum in your business – so when this comes to an end – which it will – your business succeeds like never before.
In these times of uncertainty, we need to think critically for ourselves. If we don’t, we’re letting someone else dictate our focus. As Tony likes to quote his mentor, Jim Rohn, we need to STAND GUARD at the door of our own minds.
Whatever information you're feeding your mind on a daily basis and you focus upon consistently, you're going to experience as being what life is really about – and if we don't discipline our fears and control our focus, the world will gladly do it for us. It’s your choice what to focus on.
In this episode, we are bringing you exclusive content from Tony, recorded years ago as part of his PowerTalk series. And while this is from some time ago, his message is timeless – and extremely relevant in times like these.
Sara Blakely founded SPANX with just $5,000 of personal savings and has grown it to a company that revolutionized an industry. She was selected as one of Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People in the world, and at age 41, was the youngest woman to join FORBES' World's Billionaires list.
In this exclusive interview from #BusinessMastery, Sara shares with Tony the strategies she implemented that helped her bootstrap her billion-dollar business.
Human trafficking is the worst part of humanity, and it’s hiding in plain sight. It’s hard not to ignore it, because it’s so unbearable to think about. When you hear about it on the news, or see it in a movie, most people turn it off, because it’s simply too hard to imagine a child of your own, a sibling, a niece or nephew, godchild, in such a situation. It’s difficult, and it’s dark – and most people don’t want to face the darkness.
But one organization, Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.), is looking darkness directly in the eye. In the past six years of their existence, they have rescued 3,500 victims and assisted in the arrests of more than 1,500 traffickers around the world through coordinated rescue operations and recovery programs. Their work, and mission, is one that Tony and Sage Robbins are deeply passionate about.
In this episode, you'll hear an interview with O.U.R. founder, Tim Ballard, on how they’re working to eradicate human trafficking – and incredible stories of survival and healing.
Do you stress about money? For most people, money is a huge source of stress. In fact, 85% of Americans say that they worry about their financial situation – whether it’s mounting debt, not having money set aside for unexpected expenses, or enough to retire.
But even when we feel financially comfortable – we have enough money to meet our needs, pay our bills, save for the future, and even accumulate wealth, one thing remains true: having more money doesn’t guarantee happiness.
In this episode, you’ll hear from Tony on the meaning of true wealth – and why it’s important to consider its meaning as you build it. You’ll also hear from Liz Weston, a financial planner and columnist at NerdWallet, who gives practical tips about how to save more money, pay off debt, and get ahead – so you can focus on making progress in other areas of your life.
When it comes to relationships, many people think that there’s some sort of finish line – and that once you finally find your person, you’ve somehow “made it.” But in reality, it’s just the beginning.
Relationships, like any area of your life, require attention, intention and mindfulness in order to thrive. And who doesn’t want a wildly passionate, intimate relationship in which we’re challenged, cherished and cheered on? When you actively engage yourself in your relationship and focus on becoming the best partner you can be, on giving all that you can to your partner, you’ll discover a love like you’ve never known.
In this episode, we’re talking to Dr. Cheryl Fraser. She’s a clinical psychologist, sex therapist, and Buddhist teacher – and has conducted extensive research on what causes relationships to succeed, or fail. She’ll teach you the 3 components that lead to life-long passion and a truly exceptional relationship – plus techniques that you can implement to become a more mindful lover.
Did you know that more than half of new year’s resolutions in the United States are health related, like exercising more, or eating healthier?
Whatever health looks like to you, one thing is for sure: Without it, you can’t make progress in other areas of your life. When your health suffers, so does everything else – your relationships, your career, finances, your loved ones and family.
Living in a state of peak health has served as the foundation for Tony’s success throughout his entire life – because without your health, you can’t perform at your full capacity. Tony is not a health expert himself, but he brings in experts to speak at his events, like world-renowned doctors and researchers, to give his audience multiple perspectives on health so they can make informed decisions about their lifestyle.
In this episode, you’ll hear from two of those people: Dr. Dean Ornish, a well-known physician and researcher, and Tony’s personal trainer Billy Beck, who works with him every day as he travels the world, helping him maintain the energy he needs to serve his audience at the highest level possible.
You’ll also hear from Tony, on the mindset you need to embrace in order to do something that so many people struggle to do: lose weight, and keep it off for good.
Did you know that the average American will spend over 90,000 hours at work over the course of their lifetime, and 87% of Americans have no passion for the job they do? The statistics are very clear: We’re working our lives away, and the majority of us don’t even like what we do.
No matter where you are in your career – if you’re established, or just getting started – and what goals you’ve set for yourself this year, there is one thing that remains true: Technology is changing the way that we work — and it’s changing fast.
In this episode, we’re exploring the future of work: what it means, and how you can create a career that you love in the wake of technological disruption. You’ll hear from Tony on how to stay competitive in an ever-changing marketplace, and also from Elatia Abate, an expert on the future of work, who helps people find fulfillment in their careers, while future-proofing their jobs.
When we say we want to be more productive, what does that really mean? We all have the same 24 hours in a day, so how is it that some people are able to accomplish so much, and still have time to spend on doing the things that they love? Those who maximize their time have mastered the art of productivity, and work-life integration.
One of those people is Jenna Kutcher. You may have heard her podcast, Goal Digger, where she helps her listeners redefine success, chase bolder dreams, and tackle their biggest goals.
Jenna is an entrepreneur, an expert marketer, speaker and social media influencer. She has a strong voice, speaking out about important topics like body positivity, female entrepreneurship, and some of the more difficult ones – like going through a miscarriage. She’s set massive goals for herself, achieved them, and has created an extraordinary life, one that’s on her terms, and her time.
In this episode, Jenna shares her approach to work-life integration and productivity – and how she took her wedding photography business, something that relied on her own personal involvement to be successful, and diversified it to the point where it runs even when she’s not there, and generates revenue 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Change is automatic. Progress is not. So what does it take to make progress in your life? In this season of The Tony Robbins Podcast, you’ll learn how to achieve lasting results – as we explore the 5 areas of life that many people focus on improving at the start of a new year: productivity, health, finances, relationships, and career.
