Entrepreneur Of The Year 2016 - Tom Bilyeu

For 2016, Secret Entourage recognized yet another incredible Entrepreneur for the Entrepreneur of the Year Award. He has led as an industry leader in the nutrition space, has built a company that had in excess of 57,000% growth (that’s not a typo) and his company was recognized in 2014 by INC. as the 2nd fastest growing company in America. If all these accomplishments weren’t enough, he has now shifted gears from helping the world be healthier to addressing people’s mental state of mind by helping other Entrepreneurs through his latest project called Impact Theory. Secret Entourage proudly congratulates Tom Bilyeu, co-Founder of Quest Nutrition, host and founder of Impact Theory as the Entrepreneur of the Year 2016!
