I met Brett a while back in Hollywood. We ended up chatting a bit about branding and telling each other we should work together one of these days. He called me out of the blue about a year later as he was ramping up for production on a sitcom pilot. I won’t go into too much of the production headache that was evident when I starting working with him, but let’s just say, I spent a lot of time helping him breathe.
As we talked, we honed in on specific characteristics and goals. Brett Hayworth is more than an actor, producer, screenwriter, and author. He is also a gifted speaker, entrepreneur and family man.
Recently completing the television pilot, “Just Brett and Lilly” (WATCH NOW), Brett sets out to use his story to empower and inspire audiences. A single father for many years, he found himself on the brink of hopelessness, doing everything he could to raise, protect, and inspire his daughter Lilly. Recently, he married an amazing mother of two, Lisa, and they have begun their journey as a larger family. In February of 2015, Lilly (10 years old) was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes and once again, their family took a difficult hit.
It has always been a dream of Brett’s to pursue acting, writing, and producing. Holding on to a dream that seemed so far out of reach, he picked up small acting parts and began writing and producing a sitcom. He is in final talks with producers concerning an upcoming full feature dramatic film, diving into some of the more challenging aspects of his story. He is currently finishing up his book “Backwards: How to Live Forward!”, set to be released early 2016.
Brett’s message of hope, perseverance, and purpose is his story, a man from humble beginnings blessed with an innate sense of what it takes to become the best, most successful person God created him to be, who also has the talent for transferring that knowledge to the rest of us. He believes in giving the gift of going second, understanding the art of true leadership. He is available to speak to universities, schools, churches, organizations, and businesses. Brett touches on topics such as, pursuing your God-given purpose, reaching dreams, setting goals, growing leaders, the gift of going second, and family.
Watch his newest project, “The Gift of Going Second” (WATCH NOW), a 2 minute short inspirational film.
