More than a Visionary that sees an enormous picture. He drives it forward and there no stopping him.
Tom grew up dirt poor — “thank goodness” he says. “No matter where someone is at in life, I have been there. I don’t want to be like the arrogant people who forget their past. I want to remember my past and know that God has blessed me and I believe it’s so I can help others have a much better life!” But Toms greatest blessing is life itself, which hung by a thread in his late 20s when contracted Legionnaires Disease. He lost 80 pounds and was on deaths door.
Miraculously, he recovered and was able to provide for his family after a year without work. One lesion Tom still carries with him from those dark days is the freedom that comes from being debt —free.
