Biography

Every appearance and product by Bryan Dodge is fueled by his passion for sharing with others what he has gained in over 20 years as a lifelong, avid student of success habits and leadership principles — knowledge he used first to transform his own life.

A native of Colorado Springs, Colorado, Bryan Dodge began his career in agricultural sales after graduating from the University of Nebraska. His desire to excel led him to become an avid student of success habits and leadership principles. After an award-winning career in sales, this same avid study, now a lifelong passion, changed his life and eventually launched his speaking career.

Early on, he started a company Results that promoted sales seminars throughout the United States and Canada. His company grew to more than 60 employees. Relocating to Dallas, he expanded his business, filling stadiums in major cities with events featuring the most sought-after national motivational personalities, with whom Bryan shared the speaking platform.

After 12 years, he sold this successful business to focus on sharing his own knowledge and experiences with audiences directly. He is now one of America’s most sought-after speakers, making over 250 appearances in the U.S. and Canada last year.

His relationships with top CEOs and other nationally known trainers have given him a wealth of knowledge that he readily shares through his keynotes, workshops, products and radio program. Through the years, he has inspired audiences within thousands of major corporations, professional associations, and other organizations.

At all of his events, he stresses the importance of keeping professional life and personal life in balance. Bryan practices what he teaches when he says that he goes home to his most important job: being an involved and dedicated father and husband. He and his wife, Margaret, have three children. He has been very active in coaching soccer and football and working with kids in YMCA programs. Outside of his love for reading, Bryan’s hobbies are mostly outdoor activities such as hunting and skiing.

Bryan, – Your presentation was more impactful than you know. Thank you for being so real, funny, and most of all passionate about helping myself and others get motivated to create the life we want. It really got me thinking. In fact it got me thinking so much I could hardly sleep Thursday night, well that and I missed my family terribly. 🙂

Committed to your SUCCESS!

Good Day Bryan! – First off, I would like to THANK, THANK, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for speaking with us at the Alerus Center in Grand Forks. I know you touched many of us at Black Gold Farms as a co-worker and I had a little chat Thursday evening about how you have impacted our lives greatly. I can honestly state that you are BY FAR the BEST speaker that I have EVER heard… At several points throughout your speech, I was tearing up. I know exactly what you mean about being able to tell if a person is really hearing you by the look in their eyes as I’m sure mine had quite the story.

Again, I want to thank you Bryan for speaking to our Black Gold Farms family!!! I am extremely grateful to be part of such a great work family and I am so happy that I was able to listen to you as I know that my life has now been changed for the better. 🙂

This past week, I had the opportunity to hear Bryan for the first time at the West Virginia Funeral Directors convention. His presentation was outstanding as he challenged me to become the best me possible.

Prior to owning my business, I worked in sales for Hillenbrand Industries – Batesville Casket Company where I was exposed to numerous speakers throughout my tenure, Byran excels far above all those corporate speakers and “motivational” speakers.

I own a funeral home Henson & Kitchen Mortuary, www.hensonmortuary.com and we are in a good position of gradually growing in a business.

I too have hosted a radio show called Planning For Tomorrow – www.pftradio.com as well as doing some regional public speaking. Bryan was an inspiration to me and let me understand that I was pursuing the right paths but needed to pursue with more vigor and excitemnt.

I really enjoyed his presentations!

Thanks and God Bless!

Mr. Dodge,

I must say that after 30 years of attending conferences, your two sessions were refreshing and eye opening. I know most people leave conferences and within 24 hours they go back to their old habits. You really touched me and I have made some real changes in my personal and professional life. The real comment you made that stuck was Go Home-Be Home.

Bryan,

I heard you speak at our EO Nebraska event a while back, purchased your book and just had the opportunity to read it and finish it. I’ve been in EO for 9 years and have experienced a lot of different speakers preaching related messages, however after hearing you speak and then following up with the book it had a big impact.

Thanks again for the inspiration!

Dear Mr Bryan Dodge,
I wanted to take a quick moment to THANK YOU sincerely for your amazing presentation last Thurs in Las Vegas. You are an amazing communicator and your seminar was the highlight of event for me because you were touching on the real universal keys to success that transcend an industry. Also, thank you and your family for the sacrifices you all make with traveling for work. I and my wife have both done it and it is challenging.

Our staff enjoyed Bryan immensely. We had great feedback and many who wished he could have spoken in the afternoon as well. He would be happy to know that based on the survey we sent out after our day of training, more than 50% had implemented the 48 hour rule already!!! I personally have gotten up ½ hour earlier every morning to get 15 minutes of reading in and started an exercise program I had been saying “ I was GOING to start” for over 2 years now!! But I think my biggest take a way was that every conversation I have is a seed planted…am I planting food seed or bad seed? Knew the principle well but was a great reminder!!

Have a great day and pass along our thanks to Bryan as I believe it made a tremendous impact in many of our lives!

Bryan,
Thanks so much for the great presentation today! You did a fantastic job! Our people were blown away! I know you stayed over to help Jennifer out and it is appreciated! I believe your message was heard and received. After 40 years in this business I find myself getting jaded and have “been there” and “done that”. However, today, I sat and watched you and listened to every word. I wished we had all day as I was left with wanting more!

THE GOOD LIFE RULES; 8 Keys to being your best at work and at play.

3 stars out of 5Review from GoodReads
Posted July 07, 2010 by Angela, Saline, MI
Bryan Dodge gives a very straightforward, easy to use template for one to be able to live the life they want. Each chapter ends with points you should implement within the next 48 hours, to insure greater chances of success. He doesn’t just tell you what you should be doing, he offers his own personal stories, as well as stories of others, to really show how our lives and what we do and say impact others.

If you’re feeling a bit lost and want to read something to give yourself a bit of direction, I recommend Bryan’s book. Yes, a lot of it is common sense, but sometimes you really just need to have someone else tell it to you in order for you to be able to make that change.

THE GOOD LIFE RULES; 8 Keys to being your best at work and at play.

Review from GoodReads
Posted May 09, 2012 by Shanemcgraw, The United States
Bryan Dodge is one of those guys who, when you first meet him, might seem like he’s putting on an act and nothing more. “Big deal. Another motivational speaker.” But he’s the real deal. The guy wears his heart on his sleeve and lives to help others. I’m convinced of that.
This book is a repository of Bryan’s top pieces of advice on becoming your best. Having met Bryan on a number of occasions and listened to him speak at least three times, I can tell you that a lot of this information comes out in his presentations. However, even if you have attended one of his seminars or if you are a listener of his “Build a Better You” radio show, I think you will still find value in this wonderful book–perhaps even *because* of that.
