It’s Now or…Now! (Tom Poland)
January 14, 2022
Tom Poland, founder of Leadsology, lives life in the present moment and encourages other entrepreneurs to do the same. From meditation to structuring his own 3.5-day workweek, Tom demonstrates making it by living his best life now.
Welcome to Making It! This weekly show explores the lives and stories of entrepreneurs as they share their unique perspectives on their success and the path to making it.  

     Tom Poland is the founder of Leadsology, a company that helps professional advisors generate a flow of high-quality client opportunities. After years of struggle, hard work, long hours and being broke, he developed a mindset for balancing innovation with meditation and found the sweet spot for his ideal lifestyle and optimum productivity.

     In this episode of Making It, Tom shares the lessons he has learned through decades of trial-and-error entrepreneurship. Using his three-and-a-half-day work week as an example, Tom shows us the wisdom of putting boundaries on weekly work hours and making time for the joys that enrich our lives.

“I just encourage every listener to get comfortable with their lifestyle…now.”

“Don't buy into the mindset that you've got to use this bureaucratic system where you're working five or six days a week.”

– Tom Poland
