Find your passion, stay true to your story, and accelerate your career.

In Brand With Purpose, Ivan Estrada shares critical lessons about personal growth and self-discovery—from his early precocious entrepreneurial endeavors as a seven-year-old selling his drawings door to door for $2 to his rise as an inspirational business leader and highly ranked real estate broker. A book for young entrepreneurs, creative thinkers, and ambitious dreamers, Brand With Purpose is filled with tools and expert advice on growing your career and business, with enlightening case studies and inspirational wisdom from successful entrepreneurs and trailblazers. Reflecting on his personal journey of growing up Latino, LGBTQ, and working middle class, Ivan is a prime example that hard work and perseverance on a foundation of self-confidence is the way to success.

Through guided self-reflection, you’ll discover the very essence of you and your brand, and then learn how to communicate that to build a sense of trust with your audience. Just as Ivan learned to embrace his true self and build a career as a world-class entrepreneur, you too will discover how your own experiences, challenges, and obstacles hold the key to creating a timeless brand that builds loyalty, influence, and trust—a brand with purpose.
