Thanks for Stopping By . . .

I’m Tom Gentry. Welcome to The Manifest.

You may already know me or know some things about me. Here, in this place, if you so choose, you can learn more – you can know more of me. My commitment to you, if you follow me here, is that I will show up. I will give of myself. Whatever I publish here will be a true and genuine reflection of me.

I used this title for a clear and simple reason which will become apparent to you should you stick around. Until then, think: my life, my work, my heart and soul, my Self, with a capital S, brought forth and made manifest. Or, together, on a vessel, we’re setting off toward a better place, and you’re on the manifest.

One thing I love about this platform is that I can do whatever I want with it. I can write about whatever I want. I can write about the people and the things I love. I can write about what troubles me in this world. I can share my thoughts and experience; write about some of the lessons I’ve learned so far. The stories I have to tell – I can tell them here. But, know that whatever I write here or say here, the purpose will be two-fold – to, in some small way, make your life a little bit better, and, in doing so, to know myself better.

Whatever brings you here, I’m glad you made it. Thank you for coming. I hope you stay, and together, we become something bigger and better than we could be alone.
