Amazing things Brandon's made
I believe a true entrepreneur is an individual who can find a solution to any problem. When I was younger, there was no bigger problem than finding dog treats that my new dog, Marley, would actually enjoy. As a result, I started baking and testing out different dog treats all baked in my kitchen and certified by my local vet. This manifested into my online dog business, Dog Gone Dog Biscuits, an online dog treat business with 54 flavors of homemade, gourmet dog treats made with all natural ingredients. I was sponsored by Pepsi and was able to sell them at my local Petco and Petsmart. I believe this shows how entrepreneurship has been a part of my life from a young age and an inherent characteristic of my spirit.
