Hey there, I'm Braden. I'm an out-of-the-box thinker with a passion for creation and socialization.
I have always been a quick learner. I was able to teach myself all the ins and outs of a professional music production software in only a few months, and I also learned how to use Facebook ads manager to help create a marketing campaign for an engineering company in just 30 days.

In early October 2019, I took a job doing seasonal work for FedEx ground in their shipping warehouse. This job consisted of a lot of manual labor and hard work. My basic duties involved packing freight trucks with packages meant for each truck's destination. Productivity was a big deal with this position, if we didn't work fast enough it could cause delays for FedEx customers. As package handlers we were required to maintain a packing rate of at least 400 packages scanned and loaded per hour. During the holiday season, we moved upwards of 100 thousand packages in a 6 hour shift with no downtime. This position taught me how to work as hard as I could and push myself to maintain standards in rough conditions.
In an attempt to gain some sales and marketing experience, I took a short term position with Vector Marketing. I sold professional grade kitchen equipment to prospects I found and tracked down myself. Over my time there I made a total of 7 sales totaling out to $8,250 in total. My first sales demo lead to a nice $1,200 sale. Vector taught me to find leads through a referral process, where in my customers would refer me to possible prospects that I could call and try to book product demonstrations with. This job taught me how to chase down leads, improved my cold calling skills, and gave me real world sales experience.
I worked for smashburger from June 2018 to August 2019. I trained new and existing employees wishing to take on a management position. I trained them in customer service, book-keeping, restaurant upkeep, and SmashBurger's "Gold Standard of Excellence". Over my time I trained 9 new managers who took over or opened their own stores, each one of my trainees have been very successful with SmashBurger since our training together. Throughout my time there I developed a knack for great customer service. I received more than 300 positive customer surveys mentioning me by name. These surveys brought our customer approval rating up from 80% at the time of my hiring to 91% held steady throughout my employment.
In 30 days, I worked with a multi-million dollar engineering company to create a recruitment campaign on social media, as well as employee value propositions throughout the company.
These are a few of the first projects I made within FL Studio Pro, a music production software that I taught myself. Since creating these tracks I have expanded my talents in the music arena. I've learned how to use the same software to record, mix, and master full songs. I launched a SoundCloud back in September of 2019, and have since amassed more than 300 followers and released a song that got more than 35 thousand plays in the first 2 months. I believe these projects showcase my ability to pick up a new skill and put it to use in a very quick manor.
Over the month of November 2019 I took on a challenge to write an article everyday for 30 days straight. I wrote on numerous topics ranging from world issues to simple stories from my past. Through this challenge I improved my writing skills, and learned how to dedicate myself to a task and complete a goal no matter what gets in my way. The linked post will bring you to a recap I wrote at the end of the month summarizing my experience. If you'd like to read through some of the articles I wrote over the month, you can find them all on the blog page of my website.
