As many of you know Tom is a keen student of History. We thought it would be interesting to post an old article or Tom's own history. This article originally ran in June or 2001 in th he Silicon Valley / San Jose Business Journal by Susan Mueller. Susan interviewed Tom for the journal and chronicled his unique approach and diverse experience. Join us in reading this blast from the past.
San Jose Business Journal Article @twloker
July 23, 2012, Seattle WA: Seattle-based “Profit Mastery” announced today that Tom Loker has been appointed to the company’s board of directors.
“Tom has deep expertise in sales, marketing, operations and finance and we are delighted that he is joining Profit Mastery’s board of directors,” said Steve LeFever, Profit Mastery chairman.. . . On joining the Profit Mastery board of directors, Tom Loker comments “It is rare to find an organization like Profit Mastery that can have such a profound impact on the U.S. economy. If a mere 2% of businesses applied the Profit Mastery system, we would see an almost immediate impact on our domestic economy”.

Now that we have all heard the decision by the Supreme Court on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), perhaps it is time for some reflection. I know as I read the decision Thursday morning, while I was waiting in the queue preparing for a radio interview on the issue, I felt both vindicated in my initial analysis, but also left wanting and inadequate for not seeing the sideways tax justification for its declared constitutionality. . .

If the discussion around water-coolers across the nation, or if the intensity of the discussion I have been having at meetings, discussions, or speeches I have given lately is any indication; then regardless of the decision from the Supreme Court tomorrow on the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare if you prefer, the nation will once again find itself in a vitriolic and unnecessary national argument.. . .

People that know me well know that I read. I read a lot. I read incessantly, I read everything . . . Recently, I have seen a series of articles, from both sides, trying to answer the question of what is wrong with our political system . . .
