About Tom & Ariana Sylvester

Tom & Ariana Sylvester are Lifestyle Builders, entrepreneurs and business consultants. With three thriving (and very different) businesses of their own, Tom & Ariana each bringing a variety of experience & knowledge.

The couple graduated from SUNY Oswego together in 2006—Tom with a bachelor’s in computer science and Ariana with a bachelor’s in Zoology—and were married in 2008.

Tom continued his love of learning and business with a master’s in management in 2012 from Nazareth University. He then went on to expand his experience in the corporate world consulting with Fortune 500 executives and their teams, and uses the wealth of knowledge gained there to continue helping entrepreneurs around the globe.

Ariana grew her experience by subsequently managing the day-to-day of each of their businesses: a real estate company, a retail wine & liquor store, and the business coaching company, while also raising their 2 kids. 

The couple resides with their children and pets in Rochester, NY, where you can find Tom playing video games in their home theater and Ariana watching re-runs of The Big Bang Theory…Bazinga.

Our next guests have built not 1, not 2, but 3 successful businesses, which has enabled them to both leave their jobs in their early thirties. Doing this has allowed them to design and create their ideal lifestyle, which they now help others do via their Lifestyle Builders podcast, coaching programs, and upcoming book. Introducing Tom & Ariana Sylvester!
