Ep. 164 – One Life to Give – with Brandon Adams
Brandon T. Adams is a serial entrepreneur who owns a stake in a number of businesses, including the Accelerant Media Group, Live to Grind, Young Entrepreneur Convention, and Arctic Stick. He is also the co-host and executive producer of the reality TV series Ambitious Adventures, and the host of the business podcast Live to Grind. His most recent project is a TV series called Success in Your City.
Brandon is an entrepreneur who lives life on his own terms, and there’s a reason for that. In a story that is both fascinating and relatable, he talks about his own journey of working hard, though as he admits, “not smart” – and he paid the consequences. Brandon shares an incident where he had a mental and physical breakdown while driving, a sure sign his body was telling him to work for his own reward, not others. Working in real estate at the time, the moment was crucial for Brandon, for he knew it was the signal that he had to change his ways.
Think and Grow Rich
Brandon knew he wanted to be an entrepreneur at the age of 21, after he read Napoleon Hill’s acclaimed 1937 book “Think and Grow Rich.” The lesson he learned was that the famous entrepreneurs of the day — Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and Andrew Carnegie — weren’t necessarily the brightest in the land. However, they all shared one goal: the “drive to achieve something,” said Brandon.
This drive is shown in the determination to succeed that has characterised Brandon’s life, most noticeably in his drive to release his Emmy award TV series “Success in your City.”
As many entrepreneurs know, life is never easy and Brandon’s had his own share of trials and tribulations. He speaks candidly of the adverse reaction to his film proposal and tells me how he dealt with the pressure and incessant trolling on social media. Brandon says no matter how unpleasant the experience, “…you grow, you learn, and you open up doors.”
Brandon’s message for budding entrepreneurs is simple: Live life the way you want and always be prepared to grow and learn. Every day is precious to Brandon. As he says, we all have only “one life to give.” Let’s make the most of it.
