Brian McComb: The Man Behind BMC MVMNT
Hey, I'm Brian: founder of BMC MOVEMENT, LLC.!
Being raised by a single mother in Dayton, Ohio, I know first-hand the repercussions of growing up without a strong male role model. Misguided and searching for my own significance, I tried everything to find some kind of purpose in life.
From elementary school to senior high, I deeply struggled with my self-image because of my acne. I dealt with this self-doubt and depression by abusing drugs and alcohol, frequent suspensions or expulsions from school, becoming involved with toxic women, getting incarcerated, and even contemplating suicide.
My wake-up call came from a stranger. They approached me and, without prompting or explanation, told me that I had a purpose in life. It was then I decided I wanted to truly live.
Now, I used my past and my story to be a voice for my generation and an advocate for youth fighting similar battles that I once did.
I believe I was created to help youth discover their purpose in life - the reason why they exist, so they can add value to the world by doing what they were created to do. BMC MVMNT EXIST BECAUSE YOUTH EXIST!
