In today’s episode, Max Kerwick shares a keynote from the Capitalism Conference by Tom Bilyeu — the man behind Quest Nutrition and Impact Theory — a 60 minute compilation of all of his most valuable business secrets.

Tune in to hear what he learned on the path he took from hand-making protein bars in his garage to a multi-billion dollar brand.

Key Takeaways

[03:00] Tom introduces himself and explains how he was not a born entrepreneur: he even went so far as to deliver papers for free because he was afraid to ring the doorbells to collect!

[05:30] The two childhood goals Tom had zero idea how to achieve.

  1. 1. Become rich
  2. 2. Have 6 pack abs
  3. [06:20] The king of menial jobs… So much so that everyone expected him to fail.
  4. [08:10] Who is your white rabbit. Tom talks about his two very muscular rabbits.

  • - Meditate
  • - Be open to change, don't just talk about it
  • - Execute
  • - Develop grit

  • [38:24] One of the questions Tom hears most frequently is how do you find your passion? Like for building a Unicorn company there is a formula: Interest + Mastery = Passion.
  • [41:41] We said keep listening and here it is: Job 2, build your business, Tom breaks down the how to’s:
