What’s up! My name is Brandon and I’d like to let you know more about me.
Ever since I was a kid I have had big dreams, deeply cared about people, and wanted to make something of my life.
However, as a kid I struggled with finding my purpose in life and suffered from depression. I never felt like I really fit in and was picked on for it. I never had any real friends until later in high school. I was an outsider and always looked for ways to fit in.
There were many days where I questioned why I was born and why I didn’t have many friends.
When I was in 7th grade my family went though a hard time financially. I had to leave the private school I was at and the only friends I ever had and go to a public school where I didn’t know anyone. There I made a few friends but it wasn’t until high school that we became close. Most of those days were spent sitting alone at lunch and being emotionally bullied by other kids. I spent more time than a kid should thinking about my purpose. I felt like I had no reason to be alive.
Our mind can play a lot of tricks on us like making us think we don’t matter when we feel we don’t have a a purpose or a dream. And when I discovered a cassette tape by Les Brown called, “It’s Not Over Until I Win”, my life changed for the better. I started seeking information and inspiration on how to create a better life for myself.
I put all of this lonely and negative energy into becoming the #1 motivational speaker on the planet. I had figured out the “secret” to overcoming depression and living a happy and fulfilled life and I wanted to share it with as many people as possible. So I joined Toastmasters to develop my skills so that I could become a person of value.
After becoming a skilled public speaker through Toastmasters I started reaching out to clubs, organizations, businesses and other places to share my story. It’s amazing that just 9 months after I picked up that motivational tape that I would speak to an audience of a 1,000 people and shake hands with Les Brown himself.
Since the moment of first listening to that tape it has been a powerful journey for me – speaking to large audiences, meeting Les Brown and being a certified speaker by him, being awarded the Triple Crown Award by Toastmasters, meeting powerful and inspiring people, starting a podcast and much much more.
For me life is not about the money I make or the achievements I accomplish. It’s about living in accordance to God’s plan for you, the journey you experience, and the lives you impact in the process. If I have learned anything in my life it is that if you listen to your heart and give everything you’ve got… anything is possible.
Living my dreams is far more important to me than living an average life not doing what I love and then die.
I want to die knowing my life meant something and that God used me to change the life of many people. So I am committed changing the lives of 100 million people. I teach people the steps I have learned and use everyday to create the life of their dreams and live a rich and fulfilled life.
I do this through my speaking, podcast, videos, one on one coaching, and other live events.
Always remember that you born to do amazing things. You are destined for greatness! You are here for a reason but you have to take responsibility for your life and build yourself into the person who God wants you to be. No one is going to do this for you. There will be some tough times but I promise you are stronger and smarter than you think you are. I am proof that you can. If a scared lost kid from Brooklet, Georgia can do it then so can you!
Become the hero you were born to be and never forget that you are blessed and highly favored and a child of the most high God!
