About this episode

Today, you will hear the startup story of Bryan Elliott, founder of The Goodbrain Digital Studios and creator of Behind the Brand Show. I’ve been following Byran’s work for few years now with intrigue. He has helped to build audiences and engagement for some of the biggest movies. He has also produced original video content (for movies on DVD), managed brand partnerships and movie titles with advertising budgets of over $30M. As you’ll hear in today’s episode, there are many patterns that set us up for what is to come in the future, like the ability to adapt in the midst of chaos and uncertainty. Bryan’s story is one enveloped in resiliency.

In this episode, you will hear how the desire to figure things out helped Bryan move forward in his pursuit of building his own production company. You will also hear how imposter syndrome affects many founders. And you’ll learn the importance of coming back, even from the worst situations. This is Bryan Elliott’s startup story.
