Hey there! I’m Brandon Lee, Founder and CEO of Yip Yip.
Here’s a little bit about me:
1) I adore my wife.
We have 5 kids. I think they are all awesome and I love being a dad. I met my wife in a church parking lot. We got married 1 year later and the rest is awesome history.
2) I have the entrepreneur bug.
I have been starting companies as I far back as I can remember. It might have started with mowing lawns when I was 10, or making candy and selling it door-to-door with my childhood friend Mark. I also had a paper route for several years. In my professional career, I have had a few business successes with great exits. I have some not so good closures that have helped build character and made me learn a lot. It’s all good.
3) I love to read and I love to help others grow.
A few of my favorite books are; The Sixth Discipline by Peter Senge, Talk Like Ted, Love Languages and Good to Great. I wrote my first book for called 99 Powerful Questions for Business Owners & Leaders and I am currently writing a book called Web of Influence. I am also co-writing another book called M.A.P to Teenager Success with my oldest daughter.
4) Soccer is a passion of mine.
It was my childhood escape. I was able to play several times in Europe as a teenager and it was a great experience with many memories. I have been a Manchester United fan since 1983 but I love the US National team too.
5) I have lived in 5 states and Mexico.
I went to Claremont McKenna College, a small college in Southern California. I enjoyed going to school there and met some great friends. One of those friends is a business partner at Yip Yip. Steve Swayne and I have known each other for 30 years. Nathan, who is our other partner, leads our technology team, and we have known each other for 20 years and have started 3 companies together. Between Graduate School, a few jobs and launching companies I have lived in California, Texas, Idaho, Colorado and now in Georgia. Georgia is now home! We are not leaving!
What Am I Doing Now?
To sum it up, what we’re doing with Yip Yip is an extension of our previous companies. By Design Publishing and Digital Lizard were both companies that personalized and published content for 1000’s and 1000’s of sales reps and business owners. From an early point in my life, I knew my mission and vision was to help professionals work smarter, with better communication materials without having to do the work themselves. My goal was to help them have more time to serve clients, close deals and not have “marketing” on their To-Do list. We would take care of that for them in a high quality, inexpensive and consistent manner that made them look like marketing rock stars! My goal with Yip Yip is to do that again!
