About the Episode:
In today’s episode, we’re talking to Tom Morkes, a veteran of the US Armed Forces, that’s gone on to build a very successful, well-diversified online business for himself. After graduating from the US Military Academy at West Point, Tom went out on deployment in the middle east.
After a while though, Tom started to feel this nagging in the back of his head – a calling that he could find a more fulfilling career outside of the military.
So, when his tour was up, Tom returned to ordinary civilian life and started laying the foundation for a business that’d soon grow to include writing, self-publishing, podcasting, online courses, and consulting for entrepreneurs like John Lee Dumas, Neil Patel, and more. All of this, mind you, in the span of just a few short years.
