This week we have my soul brother, Brandon Coleman on the show!

Brandon is a former NFL athlete, playing as a Wide Receiver for the New Orleans Saints from 2014-2018. He successfully reached the highest level of competition in one of the world’s most visible sports, while teaching our young about the challenges ahead, on and off the field, and making a difference in the lives of Alzheimer’s patients and their caregivers with Life of Legacy advocacy group. For this achievement, Brandon was awarded by the Greater Prince George’s Business Roundtable and Andrews Business & Community Alliance for his service as a role model for Prince Georgians everywhere. Brandon was also an accomplished student-athlete, being a part of the Big East All-Academic Tram and Team Captain during his senior year at Rutgers.

After his time in the NFL, Brandon went on to becoming an entrepreneur and Certified Life Coach. He has partnered with Can Be Done, LLC as a brand ambassador for their products, including CBD infused, flavored toothpicks.
