About Tony Rodrigues
At the young age of 6, he immigrated from Portugal to the U.S. He faced many difficult situations growing up. Besides the obvious language barrier, Tony was brought up in a very difficult & abusive household; he had very little freedom or opportunities growing up. With all of these challenges compiled, Tony became very shy, often coming across as an introvert. Feeling overwhelmed, He struggled with the desire to fit in. At one point in his teens, he faced depression and thoughts of suicide.
All this changed on his 18th Birthday when he experienced a life-altering out of body experience after having a massive car accident. He soon realized and appreciated his gift, with his new God-given gift of a “new life.” Tony decided shortly thereafter, that he was going to experience everything that life had to offer as he nearly died without having lived, if he were going to die tomorrow, he would live today. Being afraid of heights, translated into Skydiving. Being afraid of deep water/non-swimmer, translated into scuba diving, etc. Life is to be experienced, savored, lived, not just survived.
Tony has always been entrepreneurial and started in the real estate industry straight out of high school and has negotiated over 1000 transactions in his career. Over the last 29 years, he has successfully started, owned and run several businesses such as a Real Estate Brokerage, Construction/Development Company, Real Estate Investments Co, Sports Bar/ Restaurant, Horse Farm/Equestrian Center, Strategy/Coaching Company and others.
Tony has had many successes and “failures” as well. Tony believes that “failure” is an Essential part of Success, when you “fail” you learn and you only ever truly fail if you quit, You either win or you learn. In all areas of your life, it’s not about how many times you fall, but how many times you get up that determines your success. Every Time we fall, we have an opportunity to #GetUpNGrow
Tony has now been involved in personal development for over 20 years. He started out like many others seeking to help himself go and grow through the challenges he faced and continues to face. Tony now uses what he’s learned to help others grow through what they grow through. His journey has been long, at times arduous, and fruitful as he has learned from many mentors such as Tony Robbins, Jim Rohn, Wayne Dyer, Brendon Burchard, Zig Ziglar, Dean Graziosi, Gary Vaynerchuk, and many others. Now, he is excited to share the stage with legendary Speaker Erik “Mr. Awesome” Swanson at the Habitude Warrior Conference!
Tony believes that it is his social responsibility to share the knowledge that he has garnered over the years. Because what good is knowledge if you don’t put it to use and share that knowledge and your talents with the world. His motto is that Every time you fall you have that opportunity to Get Up & Grow and that we must all learn to Grow Through What We Go Through.
