Tony Robbins tells you how to make money like a billionaire

Control your money mistakes and gain financial freedom

After watching the global financial system almost melt down, I began an amazing journey several years ago to find a way for individual investors to take control of their money in a system that seems rigged against them.

I vowed that, if I was going to do this, I would do it all the way; to bring people the best possible information from the world’s most knowledgeable and influential experts.

But where to start?

Throughout my career I’ve been obsessed with finding successful strategies and tools that can immediately change the quality of people’s lives. Time and again I have proven the effectiveness of those strategies by producing measurable results where others have failed. What I knew from the beginning was that success leaves clues. People who succeed at the highest level are not lucky; they’re doing something differently. They zig when others zag, attack when others retreat. I’m interested in those people, and their relentless hunger to learn, grow, and achieve.

On my quest to help people take control of their money, I searched out these success stories. And in the process, I interviewed more than 50 self-made billionaires, Nobel Prize winners, investment titans, bestselling authors, professors, and financial legends, asking every question I could think of about the art of building wealth.

It was the ultimate PhD in investing, where my “professors” weren’t professors at all, they were practitioners — moving markets and shaping the world economy while they were coaching me one-on-one.

I asked them:

What is your competitive advantage in investing? What sets you apart? What insights have allowed you to dominate the markets decade after decade?

Is the game still winnable? How can individual investors thrive in the volatility of today’s economy?

What are the biggest challenges around the world? What are the biggest opportunities for investors today?

And, perhaps most important of all: If you couldn’t leave any money to your children, just a set of financial principles to help them thrive, what would it be?

Their answers excited me, shocked me, and sometimes made me laugh. Other times, they moved me to tears. It was beyond any university education one could imagine. Like all experts, these money masters have different views of what the near-term future might hold, and they have different opinions on which investment vehicles they favor most. Some are short-term traders; some like to hold long-term. Some think indexed investing is the way to go, while others swear you can make more money in arbitrage.

Even though they sometimes disagree on tactics, we can applaud how often these money masters’ divergent paths have led them to the same goals. Indeed, what I found most interesting in my examination of these financial legends’ distinct approaches is not what makes them different, but rather what makes them similar.
