Brandon Hance sees making the world a better place as his responsibility. With the opportunity for a career in professional football knocking at his door, Brandon chose to follow his passion for music instead. As a serial entrepreneur, he doesn’t have much spare time, yet he makes sure to find the time to be involved with a handful of nonprofits. He also runs GoodThreads, a company that helps nonprofits raise additional funds and awareness. Brandon not only has a heart of pure gold, but also maintains a humble approach to life and exudes a genuine kindness that's instantly apparent.
Even when hanging with all of the A-list music artists he now calls friends, Brandon continues to remain grounded, feet firmly planted. When asked how he stays so grounded amidst all of his success, he admittedly could have come up with a cheesy line, but kept it sweet and simple. "I don't think it's that hard; I think people tend to be the way they are by nature," he testified.
