Brandon L. Griffin

At just 10 years old, Brandon L. Griffin began his entrepreneurial journey by launching a desktop publishing business in his parents’ basement. But he didn’t stop there – by the ripe age of 12, he also started a website design business. Fast forward a few years, and his early beginnings propelled him to publish a national entrepreneurship magazine for high school students, and start the first Certified Minority-Owned social media marketing firm in the State of Indiana.

Now, 20 years later, Brandon (aka the Gen Z Life Coach) reflects on the valuable lessons he’s learned and offers actionable steps for young adults to jumpstart their own careers.
