I SAW TONY ROBBINS!! And it was a fantastic, ground-breaking experience.
I first saw a Facebook ad about the Wealth Summit. I didn’t really think of it as a wealth summit. All I knew was Gary Vee, Tony Robbins and Barbara Corcoran were coming to Atlanta. Together. Three of my favorite business influencers.
I got hipped to Barbara Corcoran years ago when I came across her book, Use What You’ve Got in a Dollar Tree, back when I lived in Detroit. This was years and years before Shark Tank. I didn’t know Barbara at the time, but I know a hard-cover business book for $1 is a steal, so I took a chance and read the book. For years, it was my favorite book.
I think she renamed that book Shark Tales after Shark Tank took off.
I jumped at the chance to see Gary Vaynerchuk and Tony Robbins. And the tickets were so affordable (I think we paid something like $120 for two tickets), I honestly didn’t even think Tony would show up. I thought he would be streaming from Fiji or something.
