Mr. Gonzalez is an accomplished serial entrepreneur, starting with his first foray into business at age 16. In the aftermath Hurricane Gloria, which swept through his hometown of Shoreham, New York, Tom and two friends borrowed their father’s chainsaws and helped neighbors to clear their yards of fallen tree’s, making several hundred dollars a day. This was quite a bounty for a 16 year old in 1985.
Since that time, Tom has run a surfboard repair business, painting contracting company, a million dollar startup, and a highly successful technology consultancy. Over the past 15 years, Tom has had the opportunity to work with over a hundred different businesses, ranging from Fortune 500 companies to one-person start ups. This broad exposure to many different types of companies, across varied industries, combined with his personal experience as a business owner, has provided Tom a unique background by which to help other business owners.
