Brendon’s social media motivational tutorials have been viewed over 300 million times across his personal accounts alone (5 million fans on Facebook, 800,000 YouTube subscribers, and 900,000 Instagram fans). His podcast, The Brendon Show, has over 60 million downloads and streams and has spent over 6 years in the top 30 of its category. His personal development email newsletter list is over 3 million subscribers. For these results among many others, Oprah.com named him “one of the most successful online trainers in history.”
As one of the world’s elite life coaches, he’s personally presented to Oprah, Usher, and dozens of Olympians and Fortune 500 CEOs and and their teams on the topic of change management and high performance. He’s trained and certified over 1000 of the world’s top performance coaches in 30 countries.
In 2017, Brendon led a research team to conduct the world’s largest academic study on the habits of high-performing people, leading to published research and the Wall Street Journal bestselling book, High Performance Habits: How Extraordinary People Become That Way. Amazon ranked it the 3rd top business and leadership book of that year and the pioneering research landed him on the cover of Success Magazine.
A #1 New York Times, #1 Wall Street Journal, and #1 USA Today bestselling author, Brendon’s books have been translated into over 40 languages. His books include Life’s Golden Ticket, The Millionaire Messenger, The Charge, The Motivation Manifesto, and High Performance Habits. The Motivation Manifesto was a 32-week New York Times bestseller and led to a sit-down interview with Oprah Winfrey for a feature in O Magazine. It now is the bestselling title on motivation of this century so far.
Brendon is a recipient of the Maharishi Award, a Senior Research Lead at the High Performance Institute, an investor and owner in multiple successful companies, and a member of Oprah’s Super Soul 100. He was raised in Montana and he and his wife live in homes in the mountains or on a secluded beach, which is why he rarely does media interviews — he prefers reading, researching, filming, teaching online, and creating life-affirming content over cocktail parties and press junkets.
