Brad pursues the BQ goal while serving as a leader with a software company serving the financial services industry, and as a member of the Board of Directors of New Image Youth Center, an after school and summer program serving youth living in one of the most dangerous neighborhoods in the United States.
Brad is also founder of Just Keep Pouring, a goal-setting program helping adolescents get almost anything in the world they want by following four simple steps: (1) Setting a goal; (2) Making a plan; (3) Executing the plan; and (4) Overcoming challenges. It's in the fourth step where the program gets its name: If the glass doesn't appear half full, just keep pouring. In other words, YOU control whether the glass is half-empty or half-full. And if it doesn't appear half-full, pour your best effort into what's important until the glass overflows.
He runs to show his family the importance of setting aggressive goals and working hard to pursue those goals. He runs to keep himself healthy. Most importantly, he runs so he can bring his best energy to every moment that matters.
