I create systems that produce results!
I love golfing, especially with my beautiful wife Genevieve (not many guys get to have a great look'n wife that golfs too). I hunt, fly fish, and enjoy coaching my kids' teams.
Just looking at my book shelf: Malcom Gladwell, Thomas Sowell, Robert Kiyosaki, Napoleon Hill, Cleon Skousen, Dale Carnegie, Jeffrey Gitomer, Adam Smith, Viktor Frankl, Ken Blanchard, Spencer Johnson, Anthony Robbins, Dan Kennedy, David McCullough, Eckhart Tolle, Arbinger Institute, David Schwartz PhD, John C. Maxwell, Tom Rath, Marcus Buckingham, Michael Gerber, John Pontius, James Hunter.........
I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, divided or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of the adversary, negotiate at the table of the enemy, or ponder at the pool of popularity.

My name is Brendan Dalley. Glad to meet you. I am a professional educator by trade, but by my definition, I am much more than that. I wear many hats; including, but not limited to, Father, Husband, Son, Step-Father, Ex-Husband, Employee, Entrepreneur, Trainer, Coach, Student, Writer, Dreamer, and Leader.
I went to school to become a teacher and ended up teaching Special Education and coaching baseball for six years. I left the teaching profession to learn about money because I was tired of not having any as a teacher. I went out and became licensed in mortgages, insurance, and started to get into the securities market. It was good, but it wasn’t a passion of mine so I ended up back in the private education sector as a Director of Special Education for a residential treatment facility. That was a lot of fun and I have some great stories but once again, money became an issue. While I was going through my Masters in Mental Health through the University of Phoenix I had an opportunity to come on board with them as a Corporate Education Liaison. I love working for the University of Phoenix and I actually get paid to share my passion about education and make a difference. Of course I will always be an entrepreneur and I love creating and teaching systems. If I can teach, I know I will learn more and find those who are willing to teach me.
You see, I believe that knowledge is power only when it is based on correct principles and it is applied (aka work) to get desired results. Everyday I work on learning and applying new things in my life because I know that change is inevitable, but growth and improvement are optional.
I have been through a crazy roller coaster ride these last few years and I feel like I have had the opportunity to look at my life in a whole new light. I have learned that we are all accountable for what happens to us and we have the ultimate power of choice. Sadly to say, many (including myself) give this power away by blaming others, making excuses, or justifying their lot in life. I am here because I have chosen to be here. You are where you are for that same reason.
Wow, maybe I should start writing fortune cookies.
