Tony Robbins, bestselling author, entrepreneur, and philanthropist, sat down with Farnoosh Torabi for his So Money podcast to discuss the one thing he buys to make his life easier.
As the nation’s #1 life and business strategist, Tony is constantly traveling to consult with everyone from presidents and Fortune 500 CEOs to entertainers and world-class athletes. So what is the one thing Tony can’t live and work without?
“Private jets. Private flight. Extraordinary,” he said. “There’s nothing that changes quality of life when you travel as much as I do, as that.”
In fact, he was persuaded to give private flights a try after a 13-hour lost-luggage, delayed-flight ordeal between San Diego and Aspen, where he was visiting a billionaire friend for Christmas. He told Torabi how his friend explained the value of bypassing commercial flights:
I said, “Dude, I’m not a billionaire like you.” He goes, “You don’t have to be a billionaire. You have to start thinking that you’re worth it.”
He said, “But, I’m gonna tell you something, if you just take a budget and you just say, ‘For the year I’m gonna spend this, but I can go when I want, where I want, wherever I want, in the middle of the night, with my own food. I can sleep in the middle of the night ’cause I’ve got a bed on the plane.'”
He said, “It will change your productivity more than anything on earth.” And it sounded insane. So he said, “Start with a small amount. Pick a number, and just say you’re gonna charter. Don’t be stupid and buy a jet. That doesn’t make any sense.” He goes, “Just go charter.”
