We all want to be more effective and successful in our lives, but often we subconsciously sabotage that objective. How often have you caught yourself falling into one of these traps:
Blaming your struggles on outside forces, when in reality, you know better
Waiting for the perfect timing, resources, or opportunity instead of proactively moving forward on your goals
Focusing on things outside of your control, instead of expanding your sphere of influence
I share both my struggles and successes beating these and other self-limiting bad habits to reach your definition of success. Don’t outsource your destiny, when you can own it.
Yes, I’m Tom DuBos. You may have figured that out from the website. My natural inclination is to be a problem solver, in my personal and professional life. I hope to use my skills and experience to help you reach your potential.
I met my wife of 32 years on a blind date, and am a proud dad to two grown daughters. I’m basically a human contradiction: a recovering engineer who loves public speaking, a lackluster high school athlete who caught the triathlon bug, and a City kid who now lives to be outdoors.
I’m an ordinary guy who’s been blessed to do some extraordinary things. Those experiences plus an innate and intentional positive outlook, give me a unique perspective on life’s challenges.
I was never athletic in school, but due to the Stupidly Stubborn gene I was born with, went on to complete five IRONMAN triathlons, ultramarathon trail runs, and many other endurance events.
My trail adventures convinced me I needed survival skills, so I joined a Search and Rescue team. I currently serve as a volunteer with the National Ski Patrol. Both provided amazing experiences. Maybe you’d like to hear about some of them. The blind date story is an included bonus.

Sales is not a Four-Letter Word
Whether we like to admit it or not, we’re all salespeople at some point in our many different roles. We all have opportunities to influence or persuade others for their benefit and potentially ours as well. Developing these skills is one of the most productive, and fun, things you can do to further your success in just about everything you do.
