In this episode of Engineer Your Success, our special guest, Brandyn Miller, adds value by sharing his experience in retail and the unforgiving truth behind the industry. Listen closely as he discusses the value of goal-setting, communication, and systemizing your marketing effort to scale.

Here’s a bit about Brandyn’s passion:

When Brandyn was a kid he grew up homeless but was determined not to stay there. So he taught himself the art of business. After 30 years of getting better and better at business, he decided to teach others to do the same so nobody has to go through the struggles He went through. Growing a business shouldn’t be a mystery. Sadly, many business owners still see it as a guessing game.

Tweetable Quotes:

“The universe will conspire to help you win every time.” – Brandyn Miller

“Start to learn some systems and really find some things that work every time you use them. And it’s amazing. We don’t have to reinvent the wheel, we don’t have to start at the bottom… When we use these things, we get to build momentum. And once we have momentum, we get to add a little bit more juice to it.” – Brandyn Miller
