Tai went on to become a Certified Financial Planner and worked in the world of finance before becoming a founder, investor, advisor, or mentor to more than 20 multi-million dollar businesses while settling in the Hollywood Hills.
In order to get feedback from an even larger audience, Tai started what is now one of the world’s largest book clubs that reaches 1.4 million people in 40 countries. He also created an alternative to the traditional business school. This "Business Mentorship" program combines the best of self-learning with the best of a University degree without all the downsides of burdensome costs and inefficient methods.
Tai Lopez is an investor, partner, or advisor to over 20 multi-million dollar businesses. Through his popular book club and podcasts Tai shares advice on how to achieve health, wealth, love, and happiness with 1.4 million people in 40 countries. At age 16, Tai realized that life was too complex to figure out on his own.
Tai wrote a letter to the wisest person he knew, his grandfather, and asked for the answers to life’s hard questions. Tai was disappointed with his grandfather’s reply. one week later his grandfather sent a package containing an old, dusty set of eleven books with a note, "Start by reading these." That began Tai’s habit of reading on his search for what he calls the "Good Life”: the balance of the four major pillars of life - health, wealth, love, and happiness.
