My guest today Brandon Steiner, is a true legend and I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to have him on the show with us today. Steiner Sports was part of my childhood as a staple in Roosevelt Field Mall that I would spend hours at while my mom shopped. I have very vivid memories waiting online for autographs from my favorite Met and Islander players. For those of you unfamiliar, Brandon Steiner is the founder and chairman of Steiner Sports Marketing and Memorabilia, the largest company of its kind in America. In addition to Steiner Sports, he is a premier global motivational and inspirational speaker and featured in basically every relevant publication, tv and radio show. Steiner is the author 3 amazing books around how to live a life on purpose, sports and his life growing up in brooklyn, my place of birth as well. Brandon is a legend, both on and off the field of business. He truly understands the value of long term relationships and has built a career and legacy around it. He has set an example for so many, including myself. I am grateful that Brandon took the time to chat with me and my tribe and share his wisdom and knowledge. I promise to pay it forward. I hope that you all enjoy this episode and gain a ton of value.
