Thom’s own gift is the ability to help people look within themselves, unpack their gift, and apply its purpose to realize their full potential. But he didn’t always know it.
For nearly 30 years, Thom built a successful career as America’s Market Strategist. He worked closely with powerful companies— such as John Deere, Trek Bicycle and Patterson Dental to help them gain market share and sustain growth. He parlayed his success into an influential speaking career, sharing his expertise on platforms at over 3,000 conferences, writing for more than 300 trade journals, and authoring 7 books.

Today, people from all walks of life come to Thom to discover their gifts, embarking on their own journeys toward self-fulfillment, meaning, and joy. Just as Thom used to help companies sustain growth and find success, he now helps both individuals and organizations discover their true paths, reveal their innate gifts, and bring them closer to Divine Intent.
