Starting at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Brandon became intentional with his time and took three online courses: Write of Passage, Build Once Sell Twice, and How to Visualize Value.

He used these courses as a launching pad for his own personal brand. Since then, he has amassed over 8000 twitter followers, 2000 newsletter subscribers, and has developed an incredible network of likeminded people.

In the interview, we talk about his meteoric rise, his audience building strategies, personal user manuals, and plans for the future.
