Founded in 2008, Behind the Brand with Bryan Elliott is a show about innovators, entrepreneurs and the stories behind their success. It's like a backstage pass inside the minds, companies and habits of some of the smartest and most interesting people on the planet. Host, Bryan Elliott decodes these stories to help you turn their wisdom into practical tactics that you can use to improve your life and grow your business. Why do this? I'm someone who loves to tell stories that I hope will inspire and educate others to find their reason for being. I basically invented the podcast I wish I had when I quit my corporate job and started my own business. I made a lot of mistakes and figured things out the hard way. I've been inspired by so many of my guests and I know you'll find a ton of value here as well. I love the quote from Mark Twain: "The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why." My mission thru my video series, podcast, talks, book(s) etc. is to help people discover their purpose and find joy and fulfillment.

Twitch Co-Founder Justin Kan | Do Anything But Do it Well!

As a child, Kan says that he was inspired by his entrepreneur parents and would tell them that he wanted to be a CEO when he grew up. While his path to get there hasn’t been at all conventional, and for a time included him broadcasting a 24-hour live stream of his own life, the Twitch co-founder seems to have gotten his wish.

Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less, feat. Bestselling author Greg McKeown
51:28I think you’re really going to like this episode with bestselling author Greg McKeown. He’s a Brit and seems like a deeply spiritual man with strong convictions for his family and faith. That is what he credits for a recent health scare with one of his children who had a serious undiagnosed illness but eventually regained her health. Greg talks about the idea of Essentialism, which is not like minimalism where you pair down your belongings to the bare bones… No, Essentialism is about keeping only the things, ideas and beliefs that serve you well. This resonates with me as I’ve shared my story when I felt like a victim 10 years ago during a really dark time in my life. I was able to swap that story and adopt a new one of being a survivor —that was my essential keepsake. I would also like to thank our sponsor LMNT — and speaking of essentials…it’s a good segue into this amazing drink that’s improved my health in a big way. Some of you know I’ve been battling migraines for a while and my doctor hasn’t found any solutions for me. I’m so sick of taking medicine so I talked to several pro athlete friends and their trainers who told me I was probably missing important electrolytes. I ordered some LMNT [spelled with the 4 letters LMNT] which as essentials like magnesium, potassium and sodium and over a 30 day period I saw my headaches decrease by about half. I am hooked and so I reached out to the folks at LMNT HQ and we’re now working together to help more of you. Electrolyte deficiency or imbalances can cause headaches, cramps, fatigue, and weakness. For those FASTING meals or working out for fitness: electrolytes can make the difference between feeling great and feeling like garbage. When you sweat, the primary electrolyte lost is sodium - athletes can lose up to 7 grams per day. When sodium isn’t replaced, it’s common to experience muscle cramps and fatigue. Anyway, I drink one before working out in the morning and one later after dinner to hydrate for the next day. Want to try a free sample pack? Goto: DrinkLMNT.com/BryanElliott and they will send you all of the flavors to try, shipping is 5 bucks. My personal favorite is the chocolate because I put it in my protein shake. I also love the Orange Salt. There’s a new watermelon flavor and I’m excited to try it!
