Brian Dixon is the creator of The Advance Show, a daily web series providing innovative tips and actionable strategies to help you dream bigger, take action, and keep moving forward. Brian has a doctoral degree in education from the University of San Diego and a masters degree in teaching from Columbia International University. He is also the author of Social Media for School Leaders (Wiley, 2012). Dr. Dixon was in a life-changing car accident while in college (chronicled in his 2013 TedX talk here) which was instrumental in shifting his priorities from pursuing a career playing in a rock band to inspiring students as a classroom teacher. This dream reached its pinnacle when Brian founded The Mentorship Academy, a public charter school with a digital media focus serving over 500 9-12 grade students in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Dr. Dixon is happily married to Julie, a stay at home mom and former classroom teacher. Brian and Julie are the proud parents of two children aged 4 and 1. Brian frequently speaks at conferences, works with individuals, and offers online training to help you advance in your life and work.
