Hello, I'm Brandon. I left a 20 year corporate pharmacy career in 2021, it was sucking my soul dry!
I admit it was scary, I have a wife and child who depend on me.
Great move, I LOVE what I do now! Everyday has it's challenges, I think that's part of what makes it interesting and enjoyable! The animal psychology blew my mind, there isn't a single day that I don't use it. It goes way beyond the animals, believe it or not I have a better understanding of people.
