Hi, I’m Danny Brown… and I’ve been playing drums since 1976!
I get asked quite often by people who don’t know me all that well if I’m the same Dan Brown who wrote the DaVinci Code Book.
The answer is, No, I’m not. That’s why I go by “Danny” or “Daniel” instead of just “Dan.”
I never really wanted to be famous like “Dan Brown,” because I’m a very private guy, but I find myself trying to be less so. I figure how much can I really help anyone if I keep to myself?
Anyway, to tell you a little bit…
I’ve been married to my wife, Peggy since 1992 and we have a son, Blair, and a daughter, Danielle.
My favorite things to do are spending time with my wife and kids, playing drums and guitar, doing community theater, teaching success principles, blogging, and selling online.
I used to love to fix up junk houses and sell them, but not so much anymore. Well, I still love it. I just don’t do it much anymore because the economy is so lousy.
I also have a book on Amazon: “The Ultimate Drums and Cymbals Guide!”
I’ve played drums since I was 10 years old, but unfortunately, never had any professional drum lessons. I also play lead guitar in a classic rock band and bass in my local church.
I started out playing drums with just an old snare drum that my older brother had laying around the house… I remember this snare drum having no bottom head and no snares, but I loved it anyway!
A year later, for my tenth birthday, my parents bought me a thirty dollar drum set… I literally played the life out of it! My little set of thirty dollar drums only lasted a little more than a year!
My drum set today consists of a 9-piece TAMA Rockstar in wine-red… An absolutely beautiful set of drums!
Through all my years of drumming, I’ve been around a lot of drummers, and I can tell you, playing styles vary… and so do attitudes! Attitude is what makes all the difference in the quality of our lives, from our relationships to our finances!
Speaking of finances, many people ask me if I know of a way to make good money since I do blogging. Fortunately, the answer is YES! See more here!
As an entrepreneur myself, I’ve learned many hard lessons pertaining to business, and life in general.
In fact, not so many years ago, I had struggled with depression, anger, fear, doubt, confusion, dead end jobs, business failures, financial lack, recurring sicknesses, and poor relationships. I found myself continuously frustrated with low pay, unappreciation, and insecurity.
But, these hardships have taught me many things about success and failure (along with many books, tapes, sermons, and seminars).
As an avid reader, I’ve always had a thirst for knowledge of why and how things work. But even though I have studied much, there’s still no substitute for experience! Experience always has been, and always will be the best teacher!
By learning from someone else’s mistakes, you can really save some valuable time and money! Proverbs 27:17 says, “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another!”
