How Britt Arnold Went From Unemployed to CEO | “Love ‘n Business” Podcast

Britt Arnold and her husband Mick Arnold dig into her inspiring journey from relying on unemployment checks to building a thriving $48 million business. Learn how she turned adversity into entrepreneurial success in this week’s “Love ‘n Business” podcast.

Topics include:

  • “Wins” aren’t the same in every job or every workplace.
  • The importance of self-navigating. Know clearly what you want – and what you’re willing to sacrifice.
  • If you’re prepared to start a new business, ask yourself: 1) What problem/demand exists that needs to be solved? 2) How do I provide a unique solution? 3) What’s my competitive advantage?
  • Taking advantage of resources available (certifications, etc.).
  • Testing the market (if you’re able to – or need to).
  • Deciding if you want to be an LLC or S corp and the steps involved.
  • The risks and rewards of entrepreneurship.
  • The process involved before you have the knowledge to allow you to narrow your focus.
  • The value of networking/relationships – and asking for help.
  • Social media tips you can use – develop your story!
  • Finding a banking partner – and a term loan vs. a line of credit as you build assets.
  • Sell, sell, sell!
