The Best Thing About Our Business Is the People - Braden Pollock Named Big Brother of the Year in Los Angeles

When  I head out to Las Vegas this weekend for the NamesCon conference that starts Sunday, I will be going to see more than just domain industry colleagues (though that is certainly reason enough to go to the big show). I also go (and keep going) to these events to see some great people. Braden Pollock of LegalBrandMarketing (who was profiled in a November 2011 DNJournal Cover Story) is certainly one of the best of them.

Shortly after NamesCon, on February 7, 2018, Braden will be honored as the Big Brother of the Year in Los Angeles! That is truly a great thing. The only thing I can think of is greater is that not one person

Big Brother Braden Pollock and Daniel

in this business who knows  Braden will be surprised to hear this - that is the kind of person he is and has always been. But enough about Braden - what about that handsome young man in the photo above? OK, they're both handsome - but I mean the one on the right - Daniel!

Braden told us, "I have been a "Big Brother” to Daniel for the past 9 years. I have tried to be a mentor to him, and show him that with hard work, a positive attitude, and motivation, he can achieve whatever goals he sets for himself. When I met him, he was going through a harder time than some people go through in their whole lives. You would never know from the smile on his face that he was once homeless, scared, and lost."

"Throughout my relationship with Daniel, he has learned to overcome the challenges he experienced in his life and is now doing great in college - straight A's in his senior year! He told me that he wants to study business so he can be his own boss one day, just like me. It really humbles me to know that he's always watching me and I know that I owe it to him be the best example possible. My life has been so enhanced because of my time with Daniel...he truly has become part of my family!  

What Braden would like to see now is more kids getting the kind of helping hand Big Brothers & Big Sisters are so deservedly famous for. He noted "You can help support this amazing organization that has been changing lives in Los Angeles for the past 102 years!
