Ep #151 – In today’s podcast episode, I’m joined by Tom Beal, a man who is a case study in resilience and overcoming adversity. Tom was born to teenage parents and lived through four divorces and six marriages while being raised on welfare. By the eighth grade, he was attending his ninth different school.
In spite of his personal challenges (and even a near death experience), Tom has transformed his struggles into becoming a speaker, author, podcasters, and entrepreneur dedicated to living a life of gratitude and helping others live more fulfilled lives.
Additionally, he became a National Bicycle Champion, the #1 Honor Graduate in Marine Corps Boot Camp at Parris Island, the recipient of three meritorious promotions in four years while in the Marine Corps, #1 in five sales organizations, publisher of The North Carolina Home Book, and president of Kelly Media, Inc. (a Jim Kelly – NFL HOF QB company), side by side with Mike Filsaime from 2006-2011, producing over $20 million in online results, and President of Strategic Profits for Rich Schefren from 2011-2013.
Tom now shares tips, strategies, and secrets to teach others how to create a joyous life full of passion, purpose, and love. He has become known as “The Simplifier” and a mentor to mentors because of his experience in helping people. Through his iOS and Android app, appropriately called “The Simplifier,” people can access Tom’s virtual trainings to help them maximize the value of their lives.
