What’s happening? I’m Bryan… born and raised in good ‘ole Long Island, NY. My dream growing up was to become a professional baseball player. I never believed it to be farfetched, considering my grandfather played in the Brooklyn Dodgers organization. Also, my father and hero in life, got signed with the Pittsburgh Pirates. Unfortunately, or fortunately (depending on whom you ask), I found out the hard way that natural talent can and will only get you so far. I ended up playing in the Yankees Affiliation, but didn’t make it to the show. I felt an incredible amount of disappointment; replaying in my head what I could have done better to make my dream come alive. It was like a never-ending movie, on repeat.
Shortly after, like many college graduates, I went into the corporate world. Specifically working in finance. The funny part about that was, it was the exact subject I avoided (along with public speaking) like the plague. I blinked and found myself there 4 years later. Growing up, I had the opportunity to watch my dad have his own successful business for the last 50 years and do things on his own terms. I knew that was exactly what I wanted to do with my life and living it on my own terms was #1 on my list.
I ventured out in the entrepreneurial world at 23 years young. Teaming up with college friends and started a lounge in one of the greatest cities in the world; NYC. Unfortunately, the stats on conventional business were in exact alignment with what was going on with our business. Two years in, we had to close the doors permanently. That caused a huge pivot in my life. I quickly realized I had no idea what I was doing, and I really had to dig in to business mindset and personal growth. Though through this experience, I had a great association and network of people who had helped me develop and eventually lead me to mentors who were about to guide me more efficiently in the direction I wanted to go.
Today I stand here as the man I am, because of the hundreds of people who have had a hand in developing me. I learned business and life skills from some of the most talented people. I got to see first-hand their goals, mindsets, training, failures, and successes. I have brought and still bring a driven and relentless desire for success from the playing field to business. I have a true passion for helping and developing people while building long lasting, healthy relationships.
Our goal is to bring all the valuable lessons we have learned along the way and share it with all of you. We hope you enjoy all that we have to offer.
