In the 40 years since he graduated from the University of Illinois, Tom has bought, sold, and managed businesses in a variety of different fields. He founded a commodity trading company, a real estate brokerage, and assembled investment groups to buy minor league baseball and basketball franchises.
After selling his last business, Tom founded a business coaching practice dedicated to inspiring motivated entrepreneurs and business owners to reach and exceed their business goals, while living fulfilling lives.
Currently, Tom works with businesses and leadership teams to help them manage relationships, increase productivity, and collaborate more effectively.
His recent book, Lifeness, has been called “A wonderful, inspirational and in the best meaning of the word, useful, guide for entrepreneurs – grounded in one man’s real-life experiences, successes, failures and ongoing development as a man, father, entrepreneur and human being.”
The companion, Lifeness Journal, is intended for those who yearn for a way to simply and consistently record moments from their journey, but are intimidated by the blank page. Following the theme of Lifeness, the Journal helps users harmonize with their world by encouraging daily expressions of joy, gratitude, and affirmation.
