Eckhart Tolle (born Ulrich Leonard Tolle) is an influential spiritual leader and prolific author, most famous for 'The Power of Now' and known for his philosophy on living that helps others find happiness. With an online following of over 450,000, as well as income generated from advertising sales and book sales; as well as his impressive net worth; Tolle is highly paid speaker who boasts an impressive net worth.
He was born in a small German town, and suffered greatly at home as his parents often quarreled over him. Raised by his mother after their divorce and witnessing postwar Germany's devastation had an enormous effect, leaving depression as his lasting companion until age 19 (this led him to enroll at London University with degrees in philosophy, psychology and literature).
On 16 January 2008, Tolle launched his YouTube channel and started uploading meditation-related videos. As it gained traction and more people asked for workshops or lectures from him, his popularity expanded rapidly and requests came pouring in for larger scale versions - eventually leading to travel throughout different countries to share his wisdom with them.

Together they have appeared together at several peace summits and run an online course entitled Conscious Manifestation; in addition, they sell merchandise and run podcasts.
