Welcome to Connect & THRIVE!

Effective human connection has been at the core of every success I’ve experienced — business, family, marketing, sales, leadership, creating healthy cultures, and so on.

My aim with Connect & THRIVE! is to share the principles, practices, and tools I have used to:

• build industry-leading businesses,
• nurture fierce employee and client loyalty,
• help others succeed at what is important to them,

The entries strive to be thought-provoking in their angles, mixing art and science into tasty, bite-sized nuggets that get your mental wheels turning.

From better communication to operational insights – nurturing strong relationships to creative marketing, to self-improvement and beyond – I’ll share experiences from my own journey and those of my clients and close associates aimed at sparking inspiration.

There are no book reports or rehashes of others’ content here. Every issue of Bryan’s Brain is an original creation.

What to Expect

Subscribing doesn’t put you on a spammy, pitch-of-the-day email list. You receive the full version of each issue of Bryan’s Brain in your inbox immediately when it is published. That’s it. I respect you and your inbox. Anything outside my core messages (information on upcoming events, additional discovery opportunities, etc.) will be included following the primary message.

This publication is all about sharing what I have learned so far – and continue to discover – during this life’s ever-changing journey, so every issue will be rich with prompts for deeper contemplation and conversation. (So please join in and share your comments!)
