Tom Anderson is an inspirational speaker, vision quest guide, and the author of Your Place in the World: Creating a life of vision, purpose, and service. In the past, Tom has been a successful commercial mortgage banker and real estate developer but today, he describes himself as an activator of purpose whose passion is helping others to discover theirs. His message is as applicable for individuals facing challenges in their personal lives as it is for leaders of organizations searching for ways to thrive in times of rapid change. With the head of a CEO and the heart of a spiritual warrior, Tom offers a unique perspective that needs to be heard.
Tom was born and raised in Florida and graduated from Florida State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Finance and Real Estate. Shortly after graduation, he embarked on what would be a successful 25-year career in commercial real estate development and mortgage banking. Tom moved to the Kansas City area in the summer of 2000 with his wife and two young children and shortly thereafter joined a Midwest-based mortgage banking company, quickly rising to the position of Senior Vice President in charge of loan production for the Kansas City office. While his career in mortgage banking provided a good living for himself and his family, it did little to feed his soul, so in 2008 Tom resigned his position to devote his full time and attention to his passions: writing, teaching, and public speaking. Today, Tom describes himself as an activator of purpose and he serves individuals from all walks of life that are feeling an inner urge to serve in a bigger way but are unsure of how to begin. Tom is a life coach, inspirational speaker, vision quest guide, and the author of Your Place in the World: Creating a life of vision, purpose, and service, which is available on amazon.com. Tom believes we all carry within us a gift that can fuel a dream, create an abundant life, and even change the world.
I’m billed as “the only researcher on Earth who treks jungles …in a wheelchair”. I am totally paralyzed from high on my chest but my pursuit of the “creative Intelligence animating Life” has transcended all of that. As you’ll see on the website, I’m a death survivor – having had 4 NDEs and I can discuss any of that (or my journey) but I have 2 reasons for the interview: I’ve synthesized God’s Intelligence as manifest in the fundamental force in Nature, and I want to let listeners know we have to re-green the Earth and bring the Biosphere back from the mindless thrust forward that it is reacting to. We have to understand Nature as a “whole system” …how creation is a delicate balance and how life deserves “club med” conditions.
Do you want the marriage of your dreams? Do you picture the two of you melting while looking into each others eyes, treasuring your time talking together, walking on the beach holding hands, raising happy kids? I can help you make your dream come true. My book is filled with stories that show you how to change your life. Using the power of your mind you replace your mindsets that limit you with beliefs that fulfill you. You tell yourself, for example, that what other people think of you is not your business. You do not let what others think limit you. What you believe in your heart runs your life. You embrace and pursue your dreams knowing you cannot fail provided you don’t quit. As Henry Ford said: “If you think you can do a thing or think you can’t do a thing, you’re right.”
– Dr. Doug Welpton
