Shazam! How To Turn Your Crazy Idea Into A Business | The Tony Robbins Podcast

In this video, we drop you inside a Tony Robbins Business Mastery seminar for a 1-hour masterclass in how to take a far-fetched seemingly impossible business idea all the way from your brain to market.

You’ll see Tony Robbins in a one-on-one interview with the co-founder of the wildly popular music recognition app, Shazam.

Shazam is one of those magic tech innovations that stopped us in our tracks with its astonishing capability the first time we saw it. Launched in the summer of 2002, Shazam just turned 20 years old, and in those 20 years, it has surpassed 70 billion song I.D.s with its 225 million monthly users around the world.

All of this began in 1999 when Chris Barton, then an undergrad student at UC Berkeley, founded Shazam Entertainment with his business partner. Watch the video for the whole story of how Chris’s creation led to an Apple acquisition in September 2018 for a reported $400 million.

Tony digs into the mindset of a true creative entrepreneur and extracts the details of what it takes to survive and persist after more than a hundred venture capitalists turn you away.

Fun Fact: Drake is the most Shazamed artist of all time with over 350 million Shazams. “One Dance” is Drake’s most popular track at over 17 million Shazams.
