In this episode of our Six Weeks to Fitness podcast, I am joined by Tom Bilyeu, co-founder of the 2014 Inc. 500 company, Quest Nutrition — a unicorn startup valued at over $1 billion — and the co-founder and host of Impact Theory, a first-of-its-kind company designed to facilitate global change through the incubation of mission-based businesses and the cultivation of empowering content. Every piece of content Impact Theory creates is meant to underscore the company mission to free people from “The Matrix” and help them unlock their true potential. During the interview, Tom will take us on a journey from his youth growing up in Tacoma, Washington in a family that struggled with obesity and how this struggle gave him a personal drive to segue into the health and fitness industry and help his loved ones and others like them revolutionize their relationship with food. As it would turn out, this new focus on something deeply personal and passion-based led Tom and his two partners to create Quest Nutrition.
Tom has taken his drive to help people develop the skills they will need to improve themselves and the world even further with his new company, Impact Theory, where he interviews high-profile innovators and thought leaders, such as Tony Robbins, Tim Ferris, Lewis Howes, Lisa Nichols, Michael Strahan and others. Also, in this episode, Tom talks about the role the mind plays in determining your success and the methods and tools he and his partners used to take their company from zero to one billion dollars in less than 7 years. This is truly one of my most informative and impactful interviews on health, wealth and success.
