In the words of a longtime client, “Tom is a rare bird, he can fly among many flocks.” A former CPA-turned-salon owner, Tom has the unique ability to balance right brain and left brain thinking, allowing him to easily connect with both creative and financial professionals. Passionate about driving performance, enhancing culture and building community, Tom is a visionary educator, speaker and leader. Over the last several years, Tom’s revolutionary approach has touched more than 30,000 people around the world. Tom’s extensive street credibility comes from decades of experience as a founder, owner and C-level executive in creative services, retail, distribution, manufacturing, consulting and education. For more than 35 years, 15 of them as a CPA, he’s been passionately committed to helping creative entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs earn more money, do what they love and have great quality of life. Prior to founding Qnity, Tom was president and co-owner of JUUT, the original and largest AVEDA™ salon in the world with locations in Minnesota and California.
