HuffPost, Tony Robbins Launch Blog Breakthrough: The Power of Crisis

The Huffington Post wants to help its readers help themselves navigate through crisis, launching new blog Breakthrough: The Power of Crisis, which was inspired by six-week NBC unscripted series Breakthrough with Tony Robbins, debuting Tuesday.
HuffPost said the blog is aimed at guiding readers through financial crisis and economic anxiety, and it will feature interactive Q&As and submissions from Robbins, as well as celebrities including Katie Couric, John Cusack, and Christine Lahti. Tony Robbins will participate in a live Q&A Monday at 2 p.m. ET hosted by HuffPost senior editor Willow Bay.

Robbins said:

I believe people are desperate for an alternative to the nature of news these days, so I’m thrilled to partner with (HuffPost co-founder and editor-in-chief Arianna Huffington) and The Huffington Post to offer inspired solutions to balance the palpable sense of fear that many people live with every day. HuffPost’s large, engaged audience provides an ideal community to build this platform of hope and inspiration.

And Huffington added:

Since the financial meltdown, HuffPost has been committed to putting flesh and blood on the statistics we are constantly hammered with, telling the stories of those impacted by the economic crisis. So we are delighted to partner with Tony Robbins to help provide inspiration and specific strategies for dealing with these very trying times. Breakthrough: The Power of Crisis will allow people to learn from the examples of others who have overcome their own crises and struggles. We will be asking our community and the general public to use this as a platform for sharing their stories, which will become a source of practical guidance for others.
