Here are a few of the highlights from our conversation…

2.  The biggest leadership lesson he learned playing under Hall of Fame Manager Bobby Cox

3.  How the characteristics of a high level athlete aligned for him to pursue a path in starting a business through the franchise model as well as a consulting practice to help others especially athletes interested in finding the right franchise business

4.  What baseball players need to perceive from their playing experience to communicate their value when making the transition into business

Brandon’s story shows the power of an opportunity and going all in on it.
