Brandon Moore is the CEO and Founder of BKM PC Certified Public Accountants. He is also the author of "The Entrepreneur's Journey" and the host of the podcast, "Coaching for Profit."
Brandon Moore is a CPA, Certified Wealth Strategist©, coach, and real estate investor who has successfully purchased and managed more than one hundred residences—while equipping others to thrive in reaching their financial goals. Like many successful entrepreneurs, however, Brandon’s career path hasn’t been direct. The curves in his route have defined his success—while deepening his expertise.
Brandon didn’t graduate at the top of his high school class. Instead, he lost his only run at student council, and a bout of pneumonia gave him an early (and perhaps fortuitous) opportunity to drop out of college (without grief from his father, he says).
After working as a janitor, losing a job as a life insurance agent, and serving as church youth director and eventually bookkeeper, Brandon decided to pursue a new career: that of an accountant.
Brandon then graduated from Angelo State University and began investing in real estate—buying two houses with no money down. A few years later, he acquired his CPA designation, and at age thirty-one, bought his first CPA firm—while building his real estate empire. Later, he purchased another four accounting practices. And during the 2008 recession, he acquired his financial service licenses to better serve CPA clients. He passed the Series 7, Series 66, and Life Insurance Agents license tests and has consistently remained in the top five to ten advisors of his broker/dealer.
Today, Brandon advises clients on wealth management—including charitable giving, estate planning, tax planning, retirement planning, investment allocation, risk management, and more. Brandon and his wife of twenty-five years, Angela, invest in and manage single-family properties and duplexes in West Texas—once acquiring thirty-three properties in one purchase. They have four children, who have been involved in the real estate business from early on.
Beyond the certifications and accolades, Brandon believes his purpose is to coach and develop leaders. He wants his family, friends, and clients to become their best selves, which is why he writes books and runs his podcast, “Coaching for Profit.” He says, “I may only be able to coach a handful of people per day, week, or month. But these books can reach people exponentially.”
In his free time, Brandon loves music and plays multiple instruments—often in his church. Brandon also recently reached his goal of third-degree black belt in Taekwondo, believing that martial arts offer a continuous improvement philosophy—training both mind and body.
For all of his experience and interests, Brandon has closets full of awards that he doesn’t display, because as he states, “It is because of my clients that I have done well. They are such a blessing to work with and for.” Sign up for Brandon's newsletter
