"Thank you for presenting to the AIMM group again! It is really hard to present to a group twice in 6 months and hit it out of the park both times, but the feedback is you did just that! - Tom Triozzi

I am a business advisor, coach, author, and keynote speaker who has worked with clients including Microsoft, Goodyear, Cricket, BYU, and Brighton. I have regularly spoken at tradeshows and dealer events, including Toy Fair, Do It Best Hardware, and the National Association of College Stores.

I am the author of the book The Day Makes the Year (Makes a Life). My expertise has been quoted in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Boston Globe, Entrepreneur, Fast Company, Inc., and numerous other newspapers and magazines.

I've won many awards, including Wittiest of My Senior Class and The Greatest Dad, which I'm proud to say I've won three times. I really shouldn't brag.
