Thank you for visiting my website! I’m glad you’re here.
My name is Tom Marino. I am a dad to two awesome children, Andrew and Madelyn, and a husband to my incredible wife, Kristen of 15 years. I am so grateful for my lifestyle which allows me to be a dad involved in my children’s life, including being at each baseball game for my son. It allows me to be the dad and husband that I have wanted to be. It also allows me to be an Executive and Life Coach. The balance that I have achieved has given me incredible fulfillment and happiness.
It wasn’t always this way.
About 4 year ago, I experienced an incredible transformation that has made me the person I am today. I was working in a great job, but was stressed out, overworked, and had poor boundaries that led to a poor work/life balance. I was always on email and always moving to the next thing when it came to my career. I decided to make a change. So, I resigned from my job to take a different one, working for a smaller organization. Well, after 60 days, I was not any better off than I had expected to be. I quit.
For the first time in my life I was unemployed. I had a mortgage, wife, 2 kids and had no job. So, what choice did I make? Did I dwell on the loss of job or did I seize the opportunity? I chose opportunity! I started my own consulting business, took on 2 clients over the course of several months and worked for a while as a independent contractor. This is when I began to understand the power in my choices.
Nine months into my consulting work, I made another choice that changed everything for me. I had assessed that one of my client’s had the need for change management, business transformation and someone to support the Executive Team. I drafted a job description for a Chief Transformation Officer. Long story short, this is the role I fill today in my ‘day’ work. Yes, I wrote my own job description. It is a role that provides the organization with the opportunity to utilize my expertise as a coach.
This experience I just detailed for you is what led me to become a Life Coach.
I help high achievers, like me, create the balanced lifestyle they desire by helping them discover the power in their choices! I assist highly motivated individuals to
create balance by understanding their core values, exploring who they are, setting goals, and establishing healthy boundaries. In our work together, we focus on evaluating your beliefs and anchor them in truth. We address any blocks and obstacles that are getting in your way. We explore your fears, honor and integrate them in your life, which allows you to move forward. I help you to live the most authentic version of yourself. This is all accomplished in understanding the power in your choices.
Just as I made different choices to live differently, establish better boundaries and follow my purpose, I will help you do the same. No matter what the circumstance, you have choice! Whether it is about your career, relationships or other life transitions, you choose who you want to be, how you want to live and what you want to do!
This is why I coach! Let’s work together to get you started on your journey to a more fulfilled and balanced lifestyle!
