As he puts it, he is “helping to create Balance on Broadway.
Bret started out as a Texan who loved to sing and dance, but found his way to the Broadway stage as a young adult. Throughout this episode, we cover. As the Broadway Life Coach, a personal brand 5 years in the making, Bret helps people find their full potential, get clear about their purpose, and create balance and self-confidence. In this episode, he explains his philosophy on striking a balance between pursuing your Broadway dream and paying the bills, how to stay sane and avoid burnout while performing 8 shows a week, and his experience as a gay man in the theatre industry (coming from Texas, of course!).
