About Tom Potter
Tom Potter and his wife of 35 years, Barbie, live on a beautiful piece of property bordering the Gallatin River near Manhattan, Montana. Tom grew up in Michigan, and after earning degrees in Forestry and Wildlife, headed west to look for work. He spent several summers working for the US Forest Service and finally landed a permanent position doing GIS work for the USDA-NRCS in Bozeman, MT. Tom worked in this cutting-edge field for about 20 years, advanced to State GIS Coordinator, and retired at the age of 56. The early retirement was a result of a decision made in 1992 to look at the Amway business. Skeptical at first, they soon got started, never realizing how much it would radically change their lives. Today Tom and Barbie operate one of the largest Amway businesses in Montana.
Amway owns the oldest and largest vitamin supplement company in the world, Nutrilite. Number one by sales, number one by quality. As a member of the Baby-boomer generation, Tom has been exposed to a lot of conflicting information on what and how to eat to be healthy. Tom believes that no matter how hard you try to eat properly, there will always be gaps. The Nutrilite vitamins have filled the gaps for him, and at age 61, he is healthy and only 10 pounds over his college weight! More info about Nutrilite can be found at www.amway.com/myshop/drycreek
Tom was a Boy Scout and attained the rank of Eagle Scout. Tom joined Toastmasters International and achieved the honor of Distinguished Toastmaster. In both of these endeavors, it was something available to everyone, but only a small percentage get that far. It required commitment. He applied this same logic to the Amway business and became very successful. Some of the things learned along the way: When people think about health, they usually think about physical health. There is also mental health, spiritual health, financial health, and relationship health. Through the mentorship he received in the Amway business, Tom has been able to focus on all these areas, and in return, to mentor others. Tom can be contacted at email@example.com.
