CO-FOUNDER, MERMAID PILLOW COMPANY
Tom Sailors is a father of four and entrepreneur from Omaha, Nebraska. Together with his wife, Tracy, they have created, built and sold six e-commerce businesses in 15 years, with products ranging from baby hats to boot socks to mushrooms. Starting in November ’16, he helped run Mermaid Pillow Co, an e-commerce store that has exceeded $10 million in revenue and 100,000 customers in its first year of business. Despite being born and raised in Nebraska, he knows nothing about farm animals, but in recent months has been required to learn about goats and cows, after moving to an acreage outside Omaha, where his daughters have become passionate about 4-H and raising animals. While he loves creating and running businesses, Tom is most fulfilled when he’s with his family, and most proud of the life he’s created that blends the two.
