Does your corporate position feel a lot less secure than it did a few weeks ago?

The Coronavirus has left a lot of us without an income and fearful of whether we’ll have a desk to go back to when the quarantine is over.

Does the uncertainty have you wishing you were your own boss? Are you curious what it might look like to walk away from the corporate world to pursue entrepreneurship?

Brett Thomas is Brooke’s husband of 16 years and business partner in both their network marketing company and Live Out Loud community. He served as a top sales leader for 25 years with Medline Industries, taking them from $400M to $14B in sales and personally closing $2B in corporate contracts. Seven months ago, he left the familiarity of his W-2 to move his family across the country and join Brooke as a stay-at-home entrepreneur.

On this episode of The Live Out Loud Show, Brett joins Brooke to offer insight on making the transition from a corporate structure to entrepreneurship, discussing the role prayer played in their decision to move to California and how they took action on that vision. He speaks to the stigma around network marketing, explaining how his view of the industry has changed and sharing his gratitude for both the residual income and opportunity to serve it provides. Listen in to understand how faith is keeping Brett and Brooke moving forward through the current health crisis and learn what YOU can do to keep showing up and pouring into others during the quarantine.
