Tom Fabbri is an adventurer and explorer who has traversed life’s path by tackling his fears and never hesitating in his quest to become his very best self. Tom’s primary motivation has been to live each day to its fullest. Whether training to become a helicopter pilot, climbing the world’s Seven Summits or diving with sharks, Tom has learned to harness fear to achieve his dreams. He now uses his unique insight to inspire and motivate others through his books and blogs, personal coaching, and a health food and supplement business. At the age of 28, while working for minimum-wage at an airport, Tom decided to take his first step towards developing his best-self by ignoring the common notion that he was “too old” for aviation training. In a little over two years, Tom became a captain for a major airline, later moving on to fly private jets for the Cleveland Browns football team and additional celebrity clients. Tom has published a book, Ageless You: The Boomers Guide To Beginning Again, and is currently working on a companion cookbook.
