Who Are The Beal Brothers?
The eldest of the Beal brothers, Brandon Beal
Born in Saint Louis, Missouri, on the 28th of October, 1985, Brando Beal was born the first child to his father, Bobby Beal, and his mother, Besta Beal.
Brandon attended St. John Vianney High School, located in Kirkwood, Missouri.
As for college, he enrolled at Northern Illinois University. Academically he was not the brightest but where he shined was in the yard.
Talking about physical appearance, Bradley Beal stands at 6 feet 3 inches (191 cm) in height and weighs about 250 lbs or 113 kg.
Brandon Beal got engaged to Ashley Buis on the 16th of September 2018, a former professional bodybuilder.
Later the couple got married in Kokomo, Indiana. Brandon was wearing a blue suit, while Ashley was seen in a white wedding dress.
The couple first met each other eight years before the wedding. It all started when Ashley was looking up photographers nearby to work with, as she was interested in modeling.
That is when she came across Brandon’s page’ she immediately fell for the man and decided to message him, saying, “Marry me?” to which Brandon swiftly replied, “elope?”. That was how they began their relationship.
In 2016, they started dating each other and decided to go on a journey around the United States. Ashley claims that they have done a lot of traveling together; even before dating, they were traveling together.
Brandon played basketball and football during his high school years at St. John Vianney High School. As years passed by, he gave up on the former and focused on football.
As a senior in high school, he maintained an impressive stat, playing football throughout the year, and hence was honored with the title of All-East Bay Athletic League first team.
In his senior year, he had 14 receiving touchdowns paired with 756 receiving yards and a total of 56 receptions.
Regarding his college years, he played in the Mid-American Conference for 4 seasons from 2004 to 2008. He played under the expertise of head coach Thomas Hammock in the position of tight end.
Brandon played college football for the Northern Illinois University located at DeKalb, Illinois. In his senior year of college, he was the first-team all-conference and also the team captain.
Similarly, his career highlights include 3 catches against Bowling Green on the 25th of October, 2008. In the same match, he covered 34 yards in total. He also had 15 long receptions a career-high.
The Big Leagues
Brandon was extremely passionate and had his heart set on making it big in football. He was ready to be selected in the drafts, and he was more than ready to play in the big leagues, but unfortunately, he faced some serious injuries.
During a try-out match, he suffered a terrible injury that resulted in a torn ligament of his foot. As a result, he had to go through a year-long treatment and rehabilitation process.
After his recovery, he signed in with Arena Football in Chicago, but, unluckily, just after two years, he could not continue his football career any further due to his prior injuries on top of a few minor injuries.
By the time he got back up on his feet, his dream of being a National Football League star was long gone. Thus, he focused his effort and time on being a professional trainer.
After that, Brandon thought that maybe athleticism just was not his thing anymore. Although it broke his heart to admit that he had to abandon something he was once so passionate about, he accepted the reality.
In a way, he was forced to choose other careers to earn a living, and he had no other option.
A Jazzy Unexpected Turnaround
Once a professional footballer, Brandon has turned himself into a successful financial analyst.
In 2017, he engaged himself in financial services, pursuing a new career yet again. Despite having zero experience or knowledge about the business, he involved himself in the financial services business.
After 3 whole years, he gained enough insights and experience and had understood the inner workings to venture out on his own. Moreover, he established Beal Financial Group in June 2020 and made a name for himself.
Brandon entered the financial industry without any prior experience in this field or any academic background, but he found success here, which he wanted from football.
Bradon Beal seems to be a very genuine and helpful guy, as he has helped many families with financial protection. After establishing his own financial services institution, he has not stopped studying the business, nor has he throttled down his work ethic.
He has been working hard since the establishment and reportedly has earned $120,000 while doing so in a single month.
The story of Brandon’s immovable persistence has inspired many people across the internet. Also, his mentality of never giving up has earned many praises.
Brandon has always been helpful to others and is a loving person overall. He always wanted to help the helpless; perhaps that is one of the reasons why he established the Beal Financial Group. All things point out that he intends to help those struggling financially.
“There is no tomorrow. There is no ‘I’ll do it later.’ My sense of urgency to become the best version of myself is unparalleled.” boasts Brandon.
He has also written a book named “Save Smarter Not Harder,” which is about financial management.
Brandon Beal’s Net Worth
We have not stumbled upon an exact figure about his net worth. However, he was reportedly making $120,000 in a month.
The company was established in June 2020, which makes it 15 months old. Since every month does not yield the same income, we can assume that his net worth is around $1 million, give or take a couple hundred thousand.
