You know that thing you’ve been thinking about doing? Why Not Now? This show has been created because I believe the world will be a better place if more people ask themselves, “Why Not Now?” Each episode you’ll hear from a professional Why Notter and learn how they answered the question and took action so you can too.

More than 50 million people in 100 countries have been empowered by Tony Robbins. He’s a New Times bestselling author, philanthropist and an intense force of nature. We talk about money, politics, leadership, Tony’s new book, empathy, pirates, ninjas and how Tony keeps his mind healthy.
