Will The REAL Brandye Dague Please Stand Up


It’s time to get back to B (me).  I began blogging, over a year ago, with Empower Network.  I was told over and over to blog about what I’m passionate about and tie it together with the Empower Network opportunity, BUT…

Rather than be coachable (the main ingredient to success) and Just Be B…I basically became a copy cat of what other people, in the business, were passionate about because in my head it was more “in line” with Empower Network (EN)products.  Again, Dave Wood, founder of EN, and other leaders continued to teach to blog about my passion/s.  Eventually, I became “burned-out” because I wasn’t staying true to myself.  But now I’m getting Back To B!

~The Ice House Entrepreneurship Program

As an entrepreneur or even in our personal lives, learning to rely on others is vital to our success.

Although, this blog series is focused on the business side I want to provide you a personal example…

My sister, who prior to April 1, 2008, was living a life of prostitution, addiction and hopelessness.  I love listening to her testimony when she talks about the day she cried out to God saying, Continue reading


Lifestyles of the Wealthy Mindset

Folks in the wealth system are frugal.  They spend their money on things they deem fulfilling, which leads to Lifestyle Freedom.

Those who are truly wealthy are less likely to live in expensive neighborhoods or drive luxury cars. Those who accumulate wealth believe that financial independence and personal freedom are more important than displaying social status. Continue reading


There is no guaranteed success formula BUT…

surrounding ourselves with those who have been where we want to go increases our likelihood of success!

COMMUNITY, A Collective Mindset

Overnight success is a lie…the journey of an entrepreneur is lifelong and comes with many hurdles of uncertainty, setbacks and disappointments.  Along with passion, determination and endurance it will take a community of support – a network of others, whose knowledge and experience can be leveraged in order to help you reach your goals.

Your Brand = Your Reputation

It’s not just what YOU say about your business…what others say holds the most weight.

While your brand can be portrayed through a logo, tagline or a name, it’s the actions behind these that really speaks volume.  Your brand is the result of your actions.  You’e heard it said best this way:

Actions Speak Louder Than Words.

Branding yourself as RELIABLE = your success.  This speaks to both business and your personal life…wherever we are, in whatever we do, we are building our brand.  Do you do what you say you’re going to do when you said you’d do it?  And at the price you said you’d do it for? Continue reading


Over the years I have ventured into many community based business opportunities.  Fortunately, I was exposed, early on, to a team of people who focused more on helping people than on money.

A true entrepreneurial mindset is focused on solving problems for other people knowing that by doing so they create success for themselves.

I love quoting Proverbs 11:25, because is matches the entrepreneurial’s mindset:

 The one who blesses others is abundantly blessed;
those who help others are helped.   ~The Message Bible

This blog post is #2  in a series that’s been inspired by an entrepreneurial class I’m taking.  The class is focused around the mindset of an entrepreneur.  Interviews of several entrepreneurs with humble beginnings make up the majority of the curriculum.  I want to introduce them here in hopes to provide inspiration and hope to those of you who have been sitting on the fence undecided and afraid of taking the leap to create a lifestyle of freedom!

Thankfulness Surrounding

Over the past 2 – 3 days THANKFULNESS has continued to be at the forefront of my readings.  I pick up my devotional and it’s talking about THANKFULNESS.

At all times and for everything giving thanks in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God the Father.    ~Ephesians 5:20

I’m reading Psycho-Cybernetics and the part I’m at talks about THANKFULNESS.  Go to church and the grandmother of the pastor comes up front to talk about THANKFULNESS.  Scriptures given point to THANKFULNESS.

“Thankfulness takes the sting out of adversity…There is an element of mystery in this transaction:

You give me thanks (regardless of your feelings), and I give you Joy (regardless of your circumstances).”

~Jesus Calling Devotional on November 24

Be Full Of Thankfulness

The more self development books I read the more I believe the Bible is a book of TRUTH!  The Bible is the oldest, LIVING book ever written and inside are many scriptures on the blessings that come from giving thanks in all things.

In every book I have read thus far for self development they have all spoken about the importance of thankfulness…


I’d like to create engagement on this blog so I encourage you to leave in the comments or send me a private message telling me 1-10 things you are thankful (or grateful) for.

My blog is here for 2 reasons:

1.  To connect and build meaningful relationships with others who have a desire to live AWOL – Another Way Of Life – and create lifestyle freedom!

Lifestyle freedom is the ability to follow your passion and come into alignment with your purpose!

We are all connected and all have been created for a Divine purpose.  Relationship and intimacy is at the core of every created being.  We are designed to work as a team to make positive changes in a fallen world.

2.  To help those who don’t know me get to know me.  Because by building know/like/trust I can develop a strong network of people – across the globe, from All Walks Of Life – who are ready to help themselves and others step into freedom…freedom of owning their time and life!  Freedom to live with passion!  Freedom to do what you’ve been created to do!
