One of their clients, Cobus Breytenbach, said, “I was 30k in debt when I joined the program. Charged the fee to a credit card. Best decision I ever made!”
Aside from managing his renovation company, Tom was also involved in the clothing business at the time. He founded Live Unafraid Apparel in Colorado Springs in the Summer of 2020, after wanting to build a clothing brand that “spoke to the fire inside people tired of hiding their light.”
