Toronto’s nightlife and entertainment scene seems incomplete without Brandon Fenton, better known as Brandon Billions. Starting his first business at 14, Brandon quickly found success planning all age events at clubs downtown and in the Greater Toronto area. Now with 12 years of experience, Brandon has been able to meet a lot of new people that did everything from all parts of the spectrum and he took advantage of it, even if it made him uncomfortable.
Now, Brandon runs multiple businesses, the foremost being North Division, an event planning business. North Division throws concerts, plans events, manages marketing, and has a music studio that hosts well-known producers and artists in the Toronto area. In addition, Brandon owns Figures, a nightclub in Yorkville with a comic book theme, the Groomsmens barbershop, as well as a real estate development company called SJB Development Inc.
Being successful in so many fields requires substantial support from a great team. This, Brandon believes, is one of the biggest challenges to starting a business.
As a multi-faceted business owner, Brandon acknowledges that the same thing motivated him in all of his endeavors – passion. For him, money is the last thing on his mind when it comes to business. The success comes inherently as Brandon works toward financial freedom and puts in the necessary research.
The excitement Brandon feels when he wakes up in the morning is what many would consider success. Brandon uses this as his motivation to keep growing, another form of success, no matter how small the steps forward are.
It’s this mindset of incremental growth that keeps Brandon moving forward over time. Most people try to bite off more than they can handle at the beginning, without any base or experience. Without realizing things, both good and bad, add up over time, others can try to rush the process.
In the next year, Brandon has set his sights on growth. His multi-faced revenue streams and angles take a significant amount of effort to bring them each to their best as each requires a particular attention. Without spreading himself too thin, Brandon is taking the next few months to focus on the revenues he has already established.
