Robbins' early life was marked by adversity. The eldest of three children, he experienced the turmoil of his parents' divorce at the age of seven and an abusive home environment. At 17, Robbins left home, embarking on a path of self-discovery and personal development. He began his career promoting seminars for motivational speaker Jim Rohn at the age of 17 and quickly gained fame through his dynamic seminars, infomercials, and self-help books, including "Unlimited Power" and "Awaken the Giant Within."

Over four and a half decades, Robbins has empowered more than 50 million people from 100 countries through his audio programs, educational videos, and live seminars. His approach combines warmth, humor, and transformational power, making him a beloved figure in the field of personal development.

Robbins is the author of six international bestsellers, including the New York Times #1 financial bestseller, "MONEY: Master the Game" and "UNSHAKEABLE: Your Financial Freedom Playbook." His latest book, "LIFE FORCE," released in February 2022, explores breakthroughs in precision medicine.

In the business world, Robbins is involved in more than 100 privately held businesses with combined sales exceeding $7 billion a year. He has been recognized by Accenture as one of the “Top 50 Business Intellectuals in the World,” by Harvard Business Press as one of the “Top 200 Business Gurus,” and by American Express as one of the “Top Six Business Leaders in the World.” Fortune magazine’s cover article named him the “CEO Whisperer,” and he has been named in the Top 50 of Worth Magazine’s 100 most powerful people in global finance for three consecutive years.

Robbins is also a leading philanthropist. Through his 1 Billion Meals Challenge in partnership with Feeding America, he has provided over 850 million meals in the last 7 years and is on track to provide 1 billion meals by 2025. Through the Tony Robbins Foundation, he has awarded over 2,000 grants and other resources to health and human services organizations, implemented a life-changing curriculum in 1,700+ correctional facilities, and gathered thousands of young leaders from around the world with its youth programs.

In his personal life, Robbins married Rebecca Jenkins in 1984, adopting her three children from previous marriages, and later fathered a child with former girlfriend Liz Acosta. Their son, Jairek Robbins, is also a personal empowerment coach and trainer. In 2001, Robbins married Bonnie Sage Humphrey, and they currently reside in Manalapan, Florida.

Tony Robbins' life is a remarkable blend of personal triumph, professional success, and generous philanthropy. His work with U.S. presidents, top entertainers, athletes, and business leaders, coupled with his commitment to helping the less fortunate, cements his status as a true force for positive change in the world.
