“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” This is a notable quote by writer, poet, and activist Maya Angelou. Truer words could not have been spoken in the case of Ashton Thomas, who inspires people as he tells them his story through writing. His journey to where he is now is characterized by going against the odds, and that is exactly what brought him tremendous success. Now, he wants to help others achieve that same success with his tips and personal anecdotes.
Published only recently in 2019, Turning Ideas Into Profits is the title of his first book. It is geared specifically towards young business professionals looking to expand their horizons. They are the ones to benefit significantly from this work, as it provides a detailed, step-by-step guide for those unsure of taking their first steps into the world of entrepreneurship. Ashton believes that in order to build their dreams, they should go for it; there is no guarantee in life anyway, and a person will not be able to realize their vision if they are not willing to take a risk and put in the hard work necessary to make a dream flourish.
With the wealth of knowledge and experience he has gained in his journey as an entrepreneur, one book is not enough to tell everything. His second book is titled The Power of Inspirational Leadership, and it is already waiting to be published this year. It talks about harnessing the ability to motivate others to achieve a level of performance and make them believe in their own competency. The third and fourth books, titled Yes, Leaders Do Fail! and Climb the Ladder, respectively, are currently works in progress.
Believing that dreams should be built instead of followed is what brought him to become one of the leading business management professionals in Arizona today. He has led his multiple companies through years of continuous growth with his wit and expertise. With a list of notable achievements, he is the Founding Member and Managing Partner of A to Z Security Services, LLC; A to Z Pack and Ship, LLC; A to Z Holdings Company, LLC; and A to Z Management Group. Expansion past Arizona and into the neighboring states of Nevada and South Carolina is likely to occur in a matter of a few years, especially given his quality of grabbing each arising opportunity. Where there is an opportunity to begin, there is Ashton Thomas, building his empire from the ground up.
With big dreams as a child in a rural town, he knew he had to leave to expand his horizons. While he has already left the nest, he still holds gratitude towards the various prominent business leaders in Phoenix, Arizona, who has served as his mentors and guided him. Now it is his turn to build the next generation of business leaders in Arizona, and he does this by working with students in pursuit of their Masters of Business Administration degree.
Ashton reminds people to dream big and take chances. Life is for the taking, but you can’t take it if you remain on the sidelines. Dare to go where others don’t, and build, buy, and expand your way to the top.
