Tommy Hilcken Since 1987, Tommy Hilcken has been helping people discover themselves and change their lives. During this time he has resolved that helping others, and contributing to society on a daily basis, is the only way to live a complete and joyful life. Whether it is his successes in family, business, or overall wellness, Tommy has demonstrated that life is a game in which we can all be winners. He is constantly reminded and often shares the words of his mentor Zig Ziglar… “All you have to do is plan to win, prepare to win and expect to win!” Tommy married at a young age, and had the responsibility of caring for three young children during this time. His only concern was providing for his family. Caught up in a dead end job he was unable to see all that life had to offer. It wasn’t until he raised his standards, surrounded himself with outstanding coaches and mentors, took action on his dreams, that life began to change dramatically. Tommy Hilcken has spent most of his life motivating and entertaining people on a national and international level. He has worked with people from all walks of life, from blue-collar families, to celebrities and pro-athletes. As a Life Success Consultant and award winning speaker, Tommy is able to guide others to break through their fears and challenges, move away from things holding them back, and take action on what it is they really want. He is living proof that you can Be-Do & Have all that life has to offer.

My firm name comes from the Celtic goddess Epona who was known as a symbol of rebirth and abundance and was a protector of horses, mules and donkeys. I enjoy gardening and have gone through Rutger’s Master Gardner’s program which provided me a great education on choosing and caring for plants and landscape design. I also enjoy reading mystery novels and in my role as a financial planner, I find that it gives me a chance to be a bit of a detective as I help unearth all of the clues and bits of information regarding someone’s financial life.
