Description

Today, Jarrett Thomas joins the Everything Matters Podcast and host, Bradford Speaks, to share his journey from the streets of NYC and the Bronx in the hallways of Corporate America and entrepreneurship. He started his career in Sales in his early 20s, choosing not to go the college route like everyone else in his family, many of whom went on to become educators. Jarrett has a huge LinkedIn audience, and is a part of their Creator Program, a select group of creators that are skilled at driving interest and high engagement with what they create.

Jarrett was raised by his parents, and watched his Dad's incredible work ethic and that taught him what it may take to get the success he wanted in life. Growing up in the streets and lacking businessmen and women as examples to look up to, he never imagined he could have a career in business. Like many young, black American males growing up in the inner cities, it was Rap music and Sport (Basketball for Jarrett) that he mostly saw as careers he could reach for and possibly attain. When he got his first sales jobs - through being coachable, humble and willing to allow his managers and peers to pour into him - he found massive success, making more money than any of his siblings had made, he knew he'd found something he could be really good at.

As his career and levels of success progressed, he also began to take up a keen interest in the magic of marketing and became a student of what it takes to influence buying decisions and buyer behavior. From there, he began to build his career in Sales and Sales leadership, and would ultimately discover the value of being authentically himself, no matter what the situation. He never felt at home with in a suit and tie and wing toe shoes, so he took the leap and threw on jeans, a tee and his Chicago White Socks cap and showed up at work, challenging the social norms - expressing to his CEO that he wanted his customers to know who he really is; a real guy, a father, a husband, a man with problems just like them. Reluctantly given the green light, he began his journey on what it means to have your own personal brand, and this is what he helps others now to do for themselves. Enjoy the show!
