"I’ve had the privilege of working with Tom Samson for 15 years while being the Director of the Career Management Center at Southern Methodist University. I first met Tom through the SMU Associate Board of mentors. Tom has been an active mentor for many years and helped countless students discover their true calling. During that period Tom has worked tirelessly helping me to identify MBA students’ most fulfilling career path. One of his areas of expertise was administering and interpreting the StrengthsFinder assessment at a very deep and personal level. After I semi-retired I decided to take Strengths Finder assessment myself to better understand what I should do in my third career life. Tom took the time to meet with me personally to help me interpret my test results at a level I had not seen before. His devotion to the process of understanding your talents and how best to apply them vocationally is incredible. As a result I started my own business and my only regret is not having done this sooner. Thank you Tom for your caring concern in helping others’ find true meaning in their work lives-myself included."
