I’ve won awards, spoken on a lot of stages, and many people have said nice things about me. But I take the most pride in the personal impact my work has on others—the child who learns how the world really works through our Tuttle Twins books; the elderly woman whose medicine is no longer banned; the ex-convict whose life is no longer ruined by the government for years after release; or the hustling teenager who launches their entrepreneurial venture at one of our markets.
I’m addicted to changing the world for the better, one life at a time. I primarily do that through the non-profit I founded, Libertas Institute—one of the country’s most impactful think tanks that helps reform policies in my home state and across the nation.
I get by with a little help from my friends.
I founded Libertas Institute in 2011 and it has since grown to become a high-impact organization working across the country to help elected officials shrink the size and scope of the government. We’ve won many awards for our innovative work, including being the only group in the country to win State Policy Network’s “Biggest Victory for Freedom” award twice.
I've created a team that supports my goal of improving the world by changing hearts, minds, and laws. Our high-impact work is making a difference in six primary ways:
We’ve changed over 100 laws in Utah, several of them the first of their kind in the entire country.
We partner with organizations across the country to replicate our unique policy reforms in their state.
We have pursued successful litigation against the state to hold the government accountable.
We operate a series of markets for kids to learn about business through firsthand experience.
To change hearts and minds, we launch large public campaigns to shift people’s opinions.
I’m the author of 39 books that have sold over 4.5 million copies worldwide.

I love connecting with audiences large and small to share inspiring stories, impactful strategies, and innovative approaches to changing the world.
Based on my book Feardom, I share a variety of stories showing how people in power try to gain control by scaring us into submission. This is a crowd favorite in the wake of Covid-19.
Business owners and entrepreneurs will gain strategic marketing advice on how to leverage psychology and tribalism to build their brand and boost their bottom line.
Based on my book Passion-Driven Education, I share with parents how they can educate their children in a way that gets them excited to learn and avoid the apathy and mediocrity that is often associated with school.
Sharing stories from my decade of experience building an influential think tank, I give business leaders, CEOs, and change makers a list of specific ideas to act on in order to cultivate their own thought leadership.
For politically-minded audiences, I share battle-tested strategies to effect legal change and shift public opinion. This is a topic of special interest in light of so many parents and grassroots groups speaking out about restrictions on our freedom.
This presentation later became my book Lessons from a Lemonade Stand, and helps youth learn about the law. What does consent of the governed mean? Are all laws valid? What are our rights and how can we protect them? These and more questions are answered in an engaging and fun presentation.
A select review of ideas from my book How to Not Suck at Life: 89 Tips for Teens, I share some fun stories and inspiring examples for teens to motivate them and give them some actionable ideas to improve their life and try to make a difference.
Based on my work selling millions of copies of books across the country and teaching complex ideas in a simple manner, I share with youth some “insider ideas” that will make them smarter than people three times their age.
