Tony Robbins came from a broken household to build a $6 billion empire as a life and business coach

When Tony Robbins walks into a room, nearly everyone is magnetically drawn to the big guy with a booming voice and a personality to match.

He has used his commanding presence to build a career as the world’s most famous life and business coach, helping people like President Bill Clinton, Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff, and the Golden State Warriors.

“I love being surrounded by people who are geniuses in their own right, who are wickedly smart,” Robbins said. “Learning from them, growing, adding my two cents to it, and helping those businesses to grow.”

Robbins recently hosted the winners of the Shopify Build a Bigger Business competition at his Fiji resort, Namale, where he also sat down with Business Insider senior strategy reporter Richard Feloni. They talked about how his childhood experiences made him want to help other people, and how he was able to scale that interest into a multibillion-dollar empire.
