Risking the unknown, stepping out of your comfort-zone and truly going after the things you want in life are the focus of this Podcast. I am Brandon, an aspiring musician/actor/entertainer who wants you to become a fearless rockstar in the pursuit of your best self. I will share all I have learned on my own personal journey after quitting a toxic day job, fumbling through tons of self-help books, life-coaches, wizardry (just kidding), and pursuing my own dreams, all in hopes that you can learn from my mistakes and ultimately gain the courage to go out and make your own.

    2022 Rebuild

    You blink your eyes and another year is gone! As excited as I was for 2021 to be different than 2020, it proved to be just as challenging. Is this what the future will be like? Perhaps, but regardless of what’s happening in the world, we cannot forget who we are and what matters most to us. So regardless of how 2021 went for you, lets start new, take out the trash, and get a plan to kick 2022 in the derriere!

    I'll Be Here Awhile

    I'll Be Here Awhile

    It’s the 60th episode of the Dare to Fail podcast, and the saga of 2020 continues on. It’s been the hardest year of my life, and I’m sure it has for you as well. We’ve all been hurting and are tired of it all. But there’s hope, and in this season 5 finale episode I’ll share with you the story of Terry Fox and an excerpt from Matthew McConaughey’s new book Green Lights that I believe exemplify what we all must do—make the choice. Also, and as a special thank you for all the people who’ve supported this project, I’ve included a cover song that I believe is a bit apropos for the times. Thank you all so much and I look forward to Season 6 in January of 2021. Let’s put 2020 behind use and build something better for us all.

    Love Yourself or Die

    Love Yourself or Die

    For the past 10 years I’ve been hiding behind shame and fear over my self-image. Specifically, since I was 26 years old, I’ve attempted to hide the fact that I’ve been losing my hair, using every method possible to try and stop it. But today, I’m choosing to face my fears, and share with you my story in hopes that you can learn from my mistakes and make the better choice—unconditional self-love. Having a negative self-image is a terrible place to be in life and can lead you to doing expensive and downright dangerous things, as you will learn from this episode of the Dare to Fail Podcast. Time to get vulnerable.

    It's Better Than You Think

    It's Better Than You Think

    Regardless of all the things that you may feel are missing in your life, it’s better than you think. Recalling one of the most frightening stories of my life, I’ll make the case that sometimes it’s the things that didn’t happen that shape us the most and can also be our biggest source of gratitude. You too, I believe, will have a realization that you’re incredibly lucky to be alive and that your life is much better than you think it is. It’s always a matter of perspective, not circumstance, that dictates our joy, happiness, and direction. You go the direction you face, so let’s face our North Star and help each other move forward.

Uplifting, simple, but profound advice from Brandon here!

Being a health professional and needing to educate and motivate others myself for a living, I often need to look to others for inspiration and sound advice. Dare to Fail offers thorough and helpful, yet not over spoken, life lessons. I love that no matter the difficulty of the topic, Brandon does a great job at always finding some sort of lesson or bright side of a negative or challenging situation. Love this podcast!

My favorite quote is by Earl Nightingale-"Never give up on a dream because the time it will take to accomplish it, the time will pass anyway." Very fitting for this podcast. Dare to Fail is: Inspiring, Reflective, and Relatable. Thank you for putting more positivity into this world :)
