Tom is a father, traveler, occasional 5K runner, best-selling author, serial entrepreneur, speaker and online instructor with over 8000 students.
Tom has always been an entrepreneur. At 15, Tom took over his first small business, a bee swarm removal service in Arizona from one of his uncles.
In college, he took $600 in “leftover" student financial aid money and a Sear's credit card and started a mobile DJ company. After graduation, Tom went to look for a “real” job. After more than a dozen job rejections, he took that little DJ company and turned it into one of the largest and most awarded DJ entertainment services in the Upper Midwest. Under Tom’s leadership, that company received a dozen customer service awards including being named one of the top wedding services companies nationally.
Today Tom’s passion is speaking and education in entrepreneurship, small business and marketing. Minnesota is home for Tom, but he spends much of his time traveling in the “Beast”, a 40’ RV.
