#11 – Ego, Masculinity, and Planet Protein

Brenden is a man with a core focus similar to my own – to redefine how traditional quote unquote masculinity is viewed. Brenden was a high school soccer star gone wrong, a college dropout, before signing up to the military and eventually becoming an infantry squad leader in the US Marine Corps.

Fast forward a few years and Brenden is now a vegan (like me), he is the CEO of Planet Protein – a plant based and sustainable nutrition company, and has a life passion of spreading the gifts of sustainability and clean water.
