Brayden Russell

Business Coach

Brayden’s career began inauspiciously: he sold pest control door-to-door in Colorado during university to rid himself of a speech impediment. But within four years he had not only conquered his stutter, he had become the company’s youngest Sales Manager and trained over 100 other staff. Then, at 23, he co-founded a residential cleaning service company in Vancouver and in five years grew it to a staff of 30 in that city and on Vancouver Island.

Brayden’s experience building businesses from the ground up serves him well as Business Coach for Breakthrough Academy, as does his determination to help others achieve their dreams. Brayden is also inspired by his colleagues: having been a stand-out on many teams in the past, he is now among a host of all-stars – and motivated to constantly be better in his daily task of nurturing entrepreneurs.

Brayden, his wife Sonja, and their two sons IIija and Luka live in Port Coquitlam, B.C. and love seeking adventure close to home as well as abroad. Brayden is also a Jiu-Jitsu enthusiast and keeps himself limber at the gym and on the basketball court.
