Tony Robbins has been able to amass a net worth estimated at half a billion, growing in money and influence every year since he began his career as a life coach in 1978. He has published books, held multiple seminars and has been listed on the Worth Magazine Power 100 list.

How Tony Robbins Achieved His Net Worth

Despite having a difficult background, growing up in an abusive home in Glendora, California, Tony Robbins has made something of himself, transforming his difficult childhood into a successful adult life many would be proud of, and it all began after he decided to leave his home at the age of 17.

After graduating from Glendora High School, he left his home and worked for as a janitor for a couple of months before he met known motivational speaker, Jim Rohn and began a career as a promoter for his seminars.

His time with Jim Rohn eventually led him to John Grinder, who is a co-founder of Neurolinguistic Programming. The two of them formed a partnership and soon, Tony Robbins began his journey as a motivational and life coach, incorporating NLP and Ericksonian Hypnosis into his seminars.

In 1988, Tony Robbins got his breakthrough and the accumulation of significant net worth when he released his first informercial, Personal Power. The infomercial gave him a lot of exposure, so much that in three years, an estimated 100 million Americans had seen or heard of him.

Thus, began his business enterprise. Tony began to build huge net worth through his seminars, which cost between $650 and $3000 per ticket, exclusive of food, travel expenses, and accommodation and he averages an estimated 200,000 who pay for his seminars and consultancy every year.

Aside from working with individuals, which include notable names like Serena Williams, Bill Clinton, Hugh Jackman, he also works with companies and businesses as a leadership expert. He owns a Leadership Academy Seminar and has hosted several companies and CEOs.
