Tom Bilyeu

136: Co-Founder of Impact Theory and Quest Nutrition

This week’s conversation is with Tom Bilyeu, the co-founder of Quest Nutrition — a unicorn startup valued at over $1 billion — and the co-founder and host of Impact Theory.

Why did I want to sit down with Tom?

Tom is driven to help people develop the skills they need to improve themselves and the world.

It’s not every day that we get to learn from someone who created a billion dollar business.

I wanted to understand his mindset, his approach to leadership, and what he’s most hungry for.

Tom is very clear about what he wants and what he believes in and that definitely is apparent in this conversation.

In Tom’s words, “What I do is with a very high degree of intention. I am very much not stumbling my way through life.”

I hope Tom’s clarity inspires you to spend your own time getting clear on what you want and what you stand for, if you haven’t done so already.

“Discipline is my super power. When I set my mind to something, forget it, that’s it.”
