Since then, Robbins has gone on to become one of the most prominent self-help authors and motivational speakers in the world, but also one of the most controversial ones, having been involved in various legal issues, including sexual harassment allegations, and injured fans following fire-walking incidents.
However, some of his books have become bestsellers, including “Unlimited Power” (1986), “Giant Steps” (1994), and “Unshakeable: Your Financial Freedom Playbook” (2017), which he co-authored with Peter Mallouk. Individually, he has worked with such celebrities as Wayne Gretzky, Hugh Jackman, Pitbull, Bill Clinton, and Justin Tuck, among others.
Robbins is also a businessman, having invested in several industries, including sports, as he’s one of the investors in Los Angeles Football Club, and the co-owner of Team Liquid, a professional eSports gaming organization.
