What is Tony Robbins' net worth?

Tony Robbins is an American success coach, professional public speaker, actor, and self-help author who has a net worth of $600 million. Tony Robbins rose to fame in the late 1980s thanks to his infomercials that promoted popular seminars and self-help books. Today, he owns 33 companies in various industries that reportedly generate a combined $1 billion+ in annual revenue.

Tony Robbins began his career promoting seminars for motivational speaker Jim Rohn and later developed his own coaching techniques and seminars. Robbins gained international recognition with the release of his bestselling book "Unlimited Power" in 1986, followed by "Awaken the Giant Within" in 1991. He has since published several other books and has been featured in numerous media outlets. Robbins is known for his high-energy seminars and workshops, such as "Unleash the Power Within" and "Date with Destiny," which have attracted millions of participants worldwide. He has coached and advised prominent figures, including politicians, athletes, and celebrities. In addition to his personal development work, Robbins is involved in various philanthropic endeavors. His influence has extended beyond the personal development industry, as he has also been sought after for his insights on business strategies and leadership.

Early Life

Tony Robbins was born Anthony J. Mahovoric on February 29, 1960, in North Hollywood, California. He is the oldest of three children. After his parents divorced when he was 7, Tony's mom married a semi-professional baseball player named Jim Robbins. When Tony was 12, he was legally adopted by Jim and took on his last name. The family lived in Azusa, California and Tony attended Glendora High School, where he was student body president his senior year. During high school, a pituitary tumor caused Anthony to grow ten inches in a very short period. As a result, today, he stands at 6 feet 7 inches and still has a deep voice.

His family was quite poor, and Tony took handyman jobs around town to help his siblings. When he was 17, Anthony began following the motivational speeches of Jim Rohn. He soon got a job promoting Rohn's seminars.

Becoming a Guru

In the early 1980s, Tony became business partners with John Grinder, the founder of a program called Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP). NLP is a pseudoscientific approach to communication and personal development that followers claim can cure phobias, depression, tic disorders, learning disorders, and more to achieve larger life goals. Together, Robbins and Grinder launched their own seminars teaching NLP and self-help. Robbins later began developing and teaching Neuro-Associative Conditioning (NAC).

In 1983, Tolly Burkan taught Robbins how to fire-walk. This would become his signature event at future seminars and events.

In 1988, Tony released his very first infomercial. The infomercial was produced by future direct-response multi-media behemoth Guthy-Renker, makers of Proactiv. The infomercial positioned Tony as a "peak performance coach." Early infomercials featured celebrity endorsers like Martin Sheen and ex-NFL player Fran Tarkenton, who praised Tony for helping them reach personal goals.

The infomercials promoted Tony's audio tapes which became extremely successful, selling many millions of copies.

Other Ventures

Robbins has appeared as himself in several movies and television shows, including Reality Bites, The Cable Guy, Shallow Hal, The Sopranos, and The Roseanne Show. He was the subject of the 2015 Netflix documentary "Tony Robbins: I Am Not Your Guru."

In 2002, Tony and Cloé Madanes founded the Robbins-Madanes Center for Intervention.

In 2014, Tony, along with Magic Johnson, Mia Hamm, and Peter Guber, bought the rights to launch what became the Los Angeles Football Club, which began competing in 2018. With Peter Guber, he also invested in the eSports professional gaming organization called Team Liquid.

Most Memorable Splurges

On the subject of his success, in 2019, Tony revealed some of the biggest and, more importantly, most memorable financial splurges of his life. He says the biggest one happened early in his career when he was in his mid-20s:

"I was about 24, 25 years old… I'd built a company that had become pretty successful and I had a really amazing economic month where I made half a million dollars in a month, which was incredible at the time.

"And I always had wanted to go to Fiji. I always wanted to have an island but I couldn't afford it. And then I saw an opportunity at a place I loved."

So, he eventually purchased The Namale Resort and Spa in Fiji for $12.5 million. A splurge to be sure, but also a savvy investment, because now it's reportedly valued at $52 million.

Of course, as you might expect from a motivational speaker, Robbins is quick to point out that the concept of a splurge is tied not to its financial numbers but to the meaning it has for the splurger:

"I've had the privilege to have a plane and do all kinds of things and they all have added value in my life in some way, but the greatest splurges are the ones where you splurge on the people you love because that has infinite value, infinite joy to you, and even when they're gone it will bring joy to your life."
