Tony Grebmeier is a builder. While most well-known for building a multi-million dollar business with his childhood friends, it is Tony’s mission in life is to build a community where struggling entrepreneurs know they can achieve anything they want despite their past.
In 1996, Tony launched his first online business in Silicon Valley, a Web traffic and marketing company, which eventually turned into his first supplement company. In 2001, he went on to build his second supplement company, ShipOffers, with two of his childhood best friends, Doug Roberts and Gil Gerstein. Fifteen years later, ShipOffers is an eight-figure business that has been an INC 5000 Company for the past three years in a row.
The journey to self-fulfillment wasn’t easy for Tony. He almost lost it all in 2008 after years of struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. Facing the near destruction of his marriage and the sad realization that he was negatively affecting his children’s lives, Tony made the decision that year to get sober, and he has stayed sober ever since. As he got clean, he also became clear about his vision to help others find their passion and achieve more. With this in mind, Tony launched his podcast, Entrepreneur Unplugged, in 2015, bringing together his loves for business, radio and life. Each week, Tony welcomes a new guest to not only share to-the-point, actionable tips for business success, but also to share their journey in an authentic and transparent way.
