915: Tom Morgan – What Nobody Tells You About Midlife

Midlife is hard. I've often asked myself why no one's addressing this. Society paints a picture of coasting on easy street at this point, but the reality is far from it. Today I'm speaking to Tom Morgan about his groundbreaking article "What Nobody Tells You." Tom dives deep into the unspoken struggles of this transformative phase, offering guidance to self-employed entrepreneurs on finding profound meaning with patience and trust. Tom's personal journey and the power of curiosity will leave you inspired, revealing the untapped potential within your midlife challenges.

Tom describes himself as a curiosity sherpa to billionaires. He lives in Manhattan with his wife, two children, and a rabbit called Frank. Tom Morgan is a Director at Sapient Capital. He is responsible for the firm’s content. He has previously worked in Equity Sales on Wall Street at

Merrill Lynch, Bank of America, and most recently as a Managing Director at Stifel. Tom holds a BA from Oxford University. His own hellish life transition has led him to insights that he thinks are applicable to life transitions and can point the way to a more meaningful life ahead.
