Create a WOW and Success Will Follow


Tom Corley boats - crop

Have you ever been wowed? We remember wow events. They stick in our mind. Wow’s happen when someone does something for you, paid or unpaid, that wow’s you. It stokes your emotions. Emotions, it turns out, creates long-term memories. When you wow someone, you create a long-term memory for that person. They will never forget what you did to wow them.

In pursuing any dream, the ability to create a wow event will dramatically improve your chances of making that dream a reality. When what you do wow’s another person, it causes a buzz. That buzz spreads like a virus through the social networks of the individual who was wowed. Soon family, friends and co-workers are looking for their own wow event. This draws more people into your herd. The more people you are able to wow, the larger your herd grows. In time, you will have a large herd. Millionaires have large herds, deca-millionaires have bigger herds and billionaires have the largest herds.

The key to realizing your dreams and success, therefore, is to wow those you serve. You wow others when what you do exceeds their expectations. When our expectations are exceeded, we remember it. And we tell others about it. So, if you want to make your dream a reality, if you want to be a success, you need to wow others. Creating a wow in what you do will virtually guarantee success. So go out and start wowing others. And watch your herd grow!

Thomas C. Corley About Thomas C. Corley

Tom Corley understands the difference between being rich and poor: at age nine, his family went from being multi-millionaires to broke in just one night, due to a catastrophic fire that destroyed his Dad's thriving business. For fourteen years they struggled with poverty. There were eleven in Tom's family, and they lived in constant fear of losing their home.

Driven by the desire to unlock the secrets to success and failure, Tom spent five years studying the daily activities of 233 rich people and 128 poor people. He discovered there was an immense difference between the habits of the rich and the poor. During his research he identified over 300 daily activities that separated the “haves” from the “have nots.” Tom decided to write a book to share what he learned. That book, Rich Habits: The Daily Success Habits of Wealthy Individuals (1st Edition), went on to become an Amazon Bestseller in the United States forty times over a three year period. To give you some perspective, in order to be a true Amazon Bestseller in the United States, where you actually receive a specific Bestseller designation from Amazon, you need to be in the top 100 of all books sold by Amazon in the United States in a given day. Rich Habits did that for nearly thirty straight days, rising as high as #7, eclipsing such Bestselling authors such as Stephen Covey, Robert Kiyosaki and J.K. Rowlings. Imagine that - an unknown, first-time, self-published author selling more books than J.K. Rowlings!

Tom now travels the world, sharing his Rich Habits and motivating audiences at industry conferences, corporate events, universities, multi-level marketing group events, and global sales organizations’ presentations and finance conferences. He has even spoken on the same stage with famous entrepreneurs and personal development experts, such as Sir Richard Branson, Robin Sharma, Dr. Daniel Amen, and many others.

Tom has shared his insights on various national and international network, cable, and Internet television programs such as CBS Evening News, NBC News, Yahoo Financially Fit,, India TV, Australia, and a host of others. He has been interviewed on many prestigious nationally syndicated radio shows, including the Dave Ramsey Show, Marketplace Money, and WABC.

Tom has been featured in numerous print magazines—such as Money magazine, Inc. Magazine, SUCCESS Magazine, Entrepreneur magazine, Fast Company magazine, More magazine, Epoca Magazine (Brazil’s largest weekly) and Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine—and various online publications, including USA Today, CNN, MSN Money,,, and the Huffington Post. Tom is a frequent contributor to Business Insider,, and a few other media outlets.

National publicity has garnered international media attention for Tom and his Rich Habits research spanning 23 countries. Broadcast media, online publications, and television throughout Asia, the South Pacific, Europe, the United Kingdom, and Central and South America have shared his powerful message.

In an effort to help parents, grandparents, teachers and adults become success mentors to the younger generation, Tom released his second book, Rich Kids: How to Raise Our Children to be Happy and Successful in Life in 2014. This book was the self-help category winner of the 2015 New York Book Festival and Runner-up in the prestigious 2015 Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards Contest. In 2016 Tom released his third book, Change Your Habits, Change Your Life. This book provides the latest science on habit change as well as more of Tom's unique research on the specific habits that helped transform 177 ordinary individuals into self-made millionaires.

Besides being an author, Tom is also a CPA, CFP, and hold a master’s degree in taxation. As president of Cerefice and Company, CPAs, Tom heads one of the premier financial firms in New Jersey.

    Hi Tom,
    Love this! There is a book I’m currently reading that claims in addition to wowing your customers we can encourage loyalty with giving them effortless experience and helping them remember you by making their job easier: providing consistent results, staying reliable and communicating as often as necessary with them. Customers are most often look for the bottom line, and may or may not get top-notch service. This is the perfect chance for us underdogs to beat out the competition by encouraging loyatly. Hope this adds to the discussion! Thanks again, Vanessa
