That photo up there is me finishing a Spartan Race. I love challenges that I’m pretty sure are too hard for me. 29029 tested me in unique ways.

I’ve led organizations through choppy waters: 9/11, international upheaval and we began our agency just as the 2008 recession got really ugly. I know something about leading and growing in challenging times.

My name’s Steve Thomas. Lot’s of people call me “ST” and that’s where “I’m Just ST” came from.

I lead a couple of boutique ad agencies that deliver income for ministries, nonprofits and small businesses. And I’m a Wizard of Ads partner.

I write about fundraising, influence and antifragility.

I pursue a well-lived life.
