Meet Wade Thomas

Today we’d like to introduce you to Wade Thomas.

Wade, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
Whether it was during my childhood as I would coach younger kids in soccer or bowling, or in my early professional career when I would develop the next generation of store managers for a national retail chain, I always knew that my passion was for helping people reach their potential. This passion became a career for me, as I rose through the ranks of the human resources profession, holding various levels of responsibility but always focusing on my passion. I had the opportunity to follow my passion, to help people grow within companies, more and more with each step on my journey. After a long and rewarding career, I found that I had reached the pinnacle of the profession, I was the Chief Human Resources Officer. Unfortunately, I found that the job became less and less about developing people than it was about other business aspects, so while it was certainly lucrative, it was becoming more and more removed. Eventually, I saw an opportunity to start my own practice with the money that I had earned, and I made the leap into coaching and consultancy–a business that allows me to live my passion each day, and to help countless people on their own journeys.

We’d love to hear more about your work. What do you do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
My art lies in the space of making people better. This takes many forms, whether it be writing, coaching, video, audio… whichever medium allows me to make the connection with people, to give them the tools and inspiration to be the best they can be. My art is the ability to find that spark, that potential within people, and to find the key to unlocking it. I take great joy in knowing that I improve the condition of others, whether it be a long term improvement or even just changing their reality for a day. There is little as beautiful to me as seeing someone fulfill their potential.

How can artists connect with other artists?
I encourage artists of all types to get connected. As a solo practitioner myself, I know firsthand the loneliness and lack of collaboration opportunities that can arise from that lifestyle. Fortunately, in today’s day and age, there are many opportunities to get connected. There are many options on social media, and many groups are available online. I myself host several groups that focus on solopreneurs to help them develop deep and meaningful connections.

Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
I am very active in the online community. Much of my work takes place virtually, allowing me to reach many people in many different circumstances. I encourage people to follow me on Facebook and Instagram or visit my website.
