Eric Thomas, PhD. or “ET”, as he is better known, has taken the world by storm,with his bold & creative, high intensity, positive life changing messages!

His words and videos impact tens of millions of people across the planet each and every day! Through a significant social media presence and his recent domestic and international tours, “ET, The Hip Hop Preacher” has become a global phenomenon! Drawing from his own personal experiences as they relate to homelessness, the absence of his biological father, scholastic struggles, and various other obstacles, ET has allowed his life to be an “open book.”

He harnessed his pain and used it propel him to greatness. It is his sincere hope, that through his transparency, others too, will find the courage to succeed, despite their circumstances. While the typical undergraduate student takes between four to six years to complete their studies, ET took 12. For most, that would have signaled the end of any future academic aspirations.

For ET, it was a springboard from which his academic success would be launched! In 2005 ET completed and received a Master’s Degree from Michigan State University and on February fifth of 2015, Eric successfully defended his dissertation and will receive a Ph.D in Education Administration, on May 8th, 2015 from Michigan State University. Eric’s commitment to community activism has been long standing.

It began with his award nominated GED Program whose success, led to the formation of his non-profit corporation, Break The Cycle, I Dare you , and a plethora of other ministerial and educational endeavors. The culmination of those efforts resulted in the development of the Advantage program at Michigan State University.

This program continues to target high risk college students by improving their study habits and increasing their retention rates.

ET’s passion to remedy and reverse the crippling effects adverse societal influences have on both the young and the old, is a never ending drive.

It is because of this commitment that he created International Urban Education Consultants(IUE); a non-profit organization committed to finding solutions to close the achievement gap in urban schools through goal framing and helping students to reform their perception of learning.

ET is the epitome of hustle, drive, determination, and success. Millions of followers have been able to apply the principles revealed in his award nominated autobiography, The Secret to Success, which has scaled the social media charts with over 50 million hits.

His sophomore release, Greatness Is Upon You, features 24 life changing fundamental precepts and has met with even greater success! Both titles are available through Eric Thomas and Associates Publications.

As CEO and founder of the consulting Firm, ETA LLC., Eric has led his team through the doors of dozens of reputable organizations and Fortune 500 companies such as General Electric, Quicken Loans, AT&T, Nike, Under Armour, New Balance and UPS. He has also consulted for major Universities, sports teams, and affiliates such as the MLB, NBA, NFL, the University of Michigan, Duke, North Carolina, and dozens more.

Eric’s spiritual walk, tenacity and drive are the perfect example of his quote, “When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you’ll be successful.”

At a recent business meeting, Eric had the opportunity to learn more “Secrets of Success” from Berkshire Hathaway Chairman, Mr. Warren Buffett. This invitation-only event, broadened his mind and further strengthened his resolve to empower others in their pursuit of greatness .
