What if you had the AUDACITY?

Today, I encourage you to consider what goals you would set if you just had the brash audacity to set them. This is an idea I lifted while reading the book The 10X Rule by Grant Cardone. (Highly recommended if you want to get motivated to explore levels of effort that you haven’t experienced before!)

I began BrianBandas.com with one key principle in mind above all else: GENEROSITY. It is my belief that whatever I give will come back to me in time. I have fallen deeply in love with the generosity marketplace, the economy of giving that has become so prevalent. What a fantastic cornerstone to doing business. In that spirit, I thought this would be a fitting first blog post. Please enjoy a few of my favorite FREE resources found out there on the web.
