Tony Robbins Tony Robbins Instagram

Probably the most known person that I shall be sharing in this Top 10 list as he's been around for a few decades now. Although his Instagram following isn't as huge as the previous influencer's and he's not near as active, Tony still is a very important person for all of u Entrepreneurs to follow and learn from.

Tony is also a philanthropist with a goal of planting 100 Million trees and will match all donations up to $300,000 in the month of April, for the Earth Month Challenge.

Jim Rohn is credited with being his mentor early in his career and although he is a very positive person, he doesn't believe in the “Positive Thinking” motivation stuff. He shares that you must change your state of mind and take action instead of saying “There are no weeds, there are no weeds” etc……. You see and grow what you focus on. Weekend Seminars including fire walking are an integral part of his popularity along with his working with many famous politicians, movie stars, sports professionals and more. You focus on an area of your life and make it bright, you will see the bright side of your life & the opposite is true as well.
