There’s an old way of thinking that continues to influence us today and it’s that taking care of yourself is selfish. Do you fall prey to this way of thinking? Today’s guest offers an overwhelming amount of reassurance that caring for yourself is pivotal to your connection, to what’s truly important in your life, and shapes everything you are. Life coach and motivational speaker Tom Kress is here to set the message straight.

Tom’s a husband, father, son, brother, family man, veteran, and self-aware, certified life coach. After many years of working an unfulfilling career in the technical industry, Tom took a complete turn, had immense personal growth, and came to the belief that he could and would affect change, specifically in young people. Now, his talks on personal power are affecting change in many minds and hearts. Tom’s coaching and speeches transform those who’ve lost their personal power through trauma, judgment, or any other way.
