Tom Papa was afraid to follow his dream (like everyone else). But he put it to the test. He went up on stage, got laughs, and kept going. Now he has 5 different income streams (all because he took that first leap). He’s got a new TV show coming up, a podcast, a radio show, live events and comedy tours, plus he also just wrote a book, “Your Dad Stole My Rake: And Other Family Dilemmas.” These opportunities didn’t come to him over night. He’s been doing comedy for 25 years. He put his dream to the test. It was the scariest thing he’d ever done. I wanted him to share his story. And the courage.
