True North Man

Oct 18, 2021

Everybody fails, but only a few have the guts to face it head-on and keep going. Tomas' first firm crashed and burned within five years of its inception, yet it was through failure that he learned some of the most valuable lessons that he would not swap for anything. “I've taken those teachings and used them in business and life,” he says. The epitome of “the technician turned COO” has seen it all through smashing, building, surviving, and prospering in his business! So, how do you become unstoppable in your business? Listen to your guest pave the path for you in today's show.  


Tomas Keenan is the COO at Apex Entourage. He is now a global business coach, public speaker, bestselling author, and the host of the Step It Up Entrepreneur podcast. Through his work at Break Free Academy, he helps ambitious business owners create a lasting impression on their communities and the rest of the world.

Tomas had to make some massive moves along his journey to create a space of fulfillment for him.
