In this episode, I talk with Dr. Brandon Tatum who is not only an incredible thought leader in the edupreneur space but is making change happen locally and nationally in education!

Both companies focus on innovation by creating relevant and vibrant educational opportunities for all people. Additionally, he serves as Chief Strategy Officer for Oklahoma Christian University and part-time Executive Director of the National Christian School Association. Most recently, Dr. Tatum has been recognized for his work in educational innovation and strategy. He served on Governor Stitt’s education committee focused on personalized learning and innovation, and currently serves as the Oklahoma Governor's appointee on the Oklahoma Statewide Virtual Learning Commission. He also serves as a member of the Council of American Private Education Commission, the Texas Private School Accreditation Commission, Oklahoma Private School Accreditation Commission and several other boards related to educational quality. He is the author of two children’s books The Adventures of Grit and the Diary of a Lousy Book. His third book on Generation Z will be published in the Fall of 2021 by Wheaton Press.
