214: Brett Thomas | On How To Leave Corporate America To Live Life On Your Terms

Dec 16, 2019 | Interviews, Podcast



My guest today is Brett Thomas. I wanted to have Brett on the show because he and I were walking parallel paths. We were both in the medical world in the south-east of America. And we wanted to move west for a better life of sunshine and beaches and no longer being tied to the constraints of working in the medical world. We really did it right around the same time. I was in Europe while he was moving. If you’re in a place where you want to make a change of career or a change of physical location, I think this episode is going to be very useful.
