Brandon Peele: Planet On Purpose

Planet on Purpose:  Your Guide to Genuine Prosperity, Authentic Leadership and a Better World takes you deep into the question of your higher purpose.  Leveraging the extensive research on purpose (and its relationship to leadership, impact, success, love and a better world), you'll be guided into a clear vision of what your life will look like when you are on fire with your higher purpose.  Further, you will try on a vision for what humanity could look like if we all knew our purpose. You will explore how we can purposefully re-imagine our planet economically, politically, culturally and ecologically.

Brandon Peele is committed to creating a planet on purpose, where every one of our 7.5 billion-strong human family is connected to their higher purpose and making their highest contribution in their career, family and community.  He is a Certified Purpose GuideTM, Founder/CEO of Ensouled.LIFE, a media platform dedicated to empowering people to create fulfilling careers and lives they love, co-author of Purpose Rising (2017, with Dustin DiPerna, Ken Wilber, Terry Patten, Bill Plotkin, Tim Kelley, Barbara Marx Hubbard and many others), and author of Planet on Purpose (2018).  As a veteran Course Leader, Brandon guides thousands of people from around the globe to awaken, ignite and embody their own life's purpose.  

Brandon helps professionals and executive teams from large corporations like Apple, Johnson & Johnson, Illumina, Sapient, Morgan Stanley and Google, as well as purpose-driven ventures such as Net Driven, Annmarie Skincare, Sacred Science and Dr. Hops Kombucha, to awaken their purpose-driven leadership and create profitable, high-impact businesses.  e has also served Catholic Priests, Dalai Lama Fellows, and world-class scientists, athletes, musicians and artists. He has taught and lectured on Purpose Discovery at the University of California, Berkeley, Northern Arizona University, The Institute of Noetic Sciences and the California College of the Arts.

Prior to his work as a Purpose GuideTM, Brandon worked in business development, strategy and financial roles for a number of purpose-driven enterprises (SunTechnics, Babycenter, ReadSocial, Lifefactory), financial firms (Merrill Lynch Investment Banking, Platinum Venture Partners and The 451 Group), and media and technology companies (Bebo/Aol., Crackle/Sony, Next Issue Media, Intertainer, Autodesk, LivePerson, Double Nickel Entertainment, United Talent Agency).  He earned his MBA at Columbia Business School in New York City, and lives in Berkeley, California with his fiancée, Stephanie Staidle.
