WHAT I DO

Confused about what I, Braden, am up to in my small businesses? Don’t worry my mom and husband can’t keep up either. I’m an Enneagram 7, which means that I’m blessed with energy, motivation, and have a constant stream of new ideas. The downside is that us 7s struggle most to keep things simple, and I’m transparent about that. There are just so many things to do! The graphic below summarizes what I have going on.
