Embracing Greatness with Brandon Moore
Successful brands are built on the right combination of confidence and humility, Brandon has that so I know there are great things in store for his brand "Moore in Dallas." One of the first things Brandon ever told me was, "Hey I heard you were 'that Brandon' in Dallas, I just wanted to let you know I'm coming for ya." It's attitudes like that that motivates everyone to work harder (especially me) at building their brands. Brandon is quick to ask for advice, eager to network, and a feign for learning more.
-Brandon MIller, The Be Great Brand
Check out this guy! A classy guy that constantly carries his thinking cap (if he isn’t wearing a suit and tie, then he’s more than likely wearing a dad cap). Brandon Moore gives the perfect example of cool, calm, and collected. From his relaxed look of jogger pants, a bad @$$ graphic tee, and a dope dad cap to suited and booted at an after 5 event, he can transition from any scene to the next. Now that we have #MooreinDallas, expect to see more of him around town visiting the “nooks and crannies” of the Metroplex and shining some light on the cities’ best bars, restaurants, museums, and etc. Welcome B. Moore to Dallas and welcome him to #BeGreat.

What is the greatest piece of advice you’ve ever received?
Professor Lebon at the University of Houston use to always tell us to go out and fail some more. It might sound weird but my lack of fearing failure has allowed me to take chances that have produced amazing results.
Describe the style in which you do business, what’s the biggest thing you’ve learned about the way that you work?
I'm very big on win-wins. I don't want to work with people unless there is some mutual benefit. I realize in doing this people trust me a lot more because they know my intentions. This is how you're going to win and this is how I'm going to win. Everything for me is very upfront.
What does embracing your greatness mean to you?
Greatness is so self defined. For me it's about making an impact. I feel like everything I touch should come out better than it was. Lasting impacts on my community, culture, family, loved ones, those are the things that define greatness to me.
What makes your brand greater than the competition, what sets you apart?
My actual brand is still being developed, but my personal one is all about creating for others. I think the things that motivate me separate me. It's about making an impact more than anything else.
From three-piece suits to jeans or high-heels to street kicks, how do you describe your personal style?
I think my personal style is "classic". I don't like to have much flare. I just want something that has a good fit and looks well put together. I'm not really the type to make a fashion statement.
Fill in the blank, in order to walk a mile in my shoes you have to be ______? Why?
Patient! haha. I have a solid plan of where I want to go and to get there it will be a bunch of small moves that aren't going to produce many big results in the near future, but it'll be well worth it.
What makes your personal culture so unique? What do you want your impact on the culture at large to be?
I just want everyone to win. I really try to find ways to bring people together. I want my impact to be me being a bridge. Bring together minds, ideas, movements, everything. I just want to see the culture thrive.
In terms of your personal entrepreneurial endeavors, what is the SOUL behind your brand and your main motivator?
It comes back to that same thing. I want to see everyone around me win. That's really the drive behind everything here.
The goal of the EMBRACE YOUR GREAT campaign is to shine light on the greatness that is our peers, describe the uniqueness of each invdividuals personal or professional brands, how they leverage their own sense of style, and to inspire each and every reader to EMBRACE THEIR GREATNESS in their own STYLE.
