Hello, I‘m Brendan!

I'm the founder of SEO for the Rest of Us. Formerly, I was SEO Director at Clique Studios where I helped grow traffic and revenue for companies ranging from local businesses to global sporting brands to $90M+ venture-backed startups.

Previously, I sold an e-commerce business and an affiliate-based blog (2016).

I think a lot of people would be surprised to know, while trying desperately to get out of my 9 to 5 as a teacher in a VERY toxic school, I learned SEO completely on ACCIDENT.

I remember sitting in my college cafeteria about fifteen years ago, holding this giant course catalog and being told to decide on a major.

Apparently we think it’s a great idea to let 18 year olds take on a ton of debt and decide their path in life.

In that moment, I decided to be a teacher. And, like most teachers, I went through college and did everything right, only to be rewarded with a lackluster career.

But I still did everything I could to get ahead. I started a business, I became an assistant principal.

Again, what was I rewarded with? 25 extra lbs. on my midsection, Sunday night panic attacks, and an unhealthy relationship with alcohol. All for the privilege of being the lowest paid assistant principal in my state (ugh).

Externally, things looked amazing. I was advancing in my career, I had a cool side business, I had a $1500/mo business coach and everything I put out into the world screamed SUCCESS.

But inside, I was dying. My business was failing. My career was failing. I couldn’t sleep. AND, I had a new baby to take care of.

I asked my family for money and was told no. Everything I used to build my business was crashing down around me (especially that good old 100% organic Facebook and Instagram reach).

In a moment of clarity, I decided that I was either going to sell my business or shut it down.

Within the next six months, I sold my business and doubled down on the only thing that I’d ever seen work in my business, organic traffic from Google.

And that meant SEO. Search engine optimization.

So I got really good at SEO, first on my own sites, and then for clients. Getting extremely good at SEO has radically changed my life.

I’ve quit my teaching job and have more freedom (time and financial) than I ever thought was possible.

It’s been a complete paradigm shift.

I don't know that I would have had ears to hear it, but I wish I had an SEO coach in front of me in my college cafeteria. If I did, we'd be having an entirely different conversation right now.

It's my hope, here in MastermindJam, that I can be that person for you.

TL;DR: I help B2B, SaaS, eCommerce, Productized Service, Digital Products, Affiliate Marketing, Marketing, Services, Software Development, Course Instructor/Teacher, B2C, Coaching, Consulting, Freelancing, Local Bricks & Mortar Retail & Service businesses achieve SEO, Local SEO, and Video SEO success.
