“When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious
privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.”

Marcus Aurelius

Brandon Vallorani

Brandon Vallorani is a practiced entrepreneur and accomplished CEO, recognized by peers and media outlets as a visionary leader and powerhouse executive who “knows a thing or two about marketing.”

Brandon’s background in graphic design, marketing, and executive management have resulted in continually increasing success. Colleagues have commended Brandon for creating an environment that not only allows but encourages people to succeed both professionally and personally. Even those who disagree with his politics find themselves impressed with his marketing acumen.

Brandon is a highly driven achiever, a professional team-builder, and a positive thinker who is happiest when building a new empire.

Author of The Wolves and the Mandolin: Celebrating Life’s Privileges In A Harsh World (ForbesBooks; 2017), Brandon begins with the Vallorani family’s modest beginnings in Italy, regales readers with legend-worthy stories of great-grandfather Luigi’s first years in America, and culminates with his journey into entrepreneurship.

Throughout this page-turning Amazon bestseller, Vallorani provides his philosophies in business, management, and life. Offering inspiring, practical, attainable advice to the reader, Vallorani demonstrates, “You, too, can pursue and achieve the celebration of life, liberty, and the pursuit of the American Dream.”

After graduating from West Virginia University with a Bachelor’s Degree of Fine Arts in Graphic Design, Vallorani began his career in the non-profit sector in 1998. Within a window of 6 years, Brandon developed and led a number of strategic plans, improving online traffic by 151%, expanding radio network reach by 100%, and boosted annual company revenue by 700%.

Quickly rising through the ranks to Executive Vice President, he simultaneously earned his Master of Business Administration from Thomas More University in 2004.

He went on to another non-profit, boosting annual revenues from a few hundred thousand dollars to several million in a period of a mere three years, while co-founding Tolle Lege Press with his father, Ray.

As their first project, TLP raised over $100,000 for the reproduction of a historic masterpiece: The 1599 Geneva Bible.

The Geneva Bible bears much historical significance to the Reformation period, and came to America with the Mayflower, but had been lost in obscurity and available only without modern spelling and punctuation. The first updated reproduction was published and made available to the public in 2006 by Tolle Lege Press.

Brandon utilized his expertise in marketing to advertise this historic treasure in both traditional and modern media avenues, and since its publication, TLP has distributed over 140,000 copies in 13 different formats. Along with this stunning project, TLP published over 20 additional titles.

In 2007, Brandon branched out into yet another entrepreneurial endeavor, with the founding of a webstore that would eventually explode into a network of websites and webstores known as Liberty Alliance.

Recognized on the Inc. 5000 list of America’s fastest growing privately held companies for five consecutive years (2012-2016), Vallorani sold Liberty Alliance to Liftable Media in 2017, and shifted his focus to marketing products through KeepandBear.com, MAGAfun.com, and RepublicanLegion.com (sold to Yippy, Inc. in 2019).

Having developed a firm to help others in the conservative and religious markets build their empires through Romulus Marketing, once again a Vallorani company received a nod for his team’s success when placed on the Inc. 5000 list in 2019.

Also in 2019, Brandon’s latest book, co-authored with Doug Giles, Would Jesus Vote for Trump? was released and shot to high Amazon rankings.

Today, Vallorani focuses on his consulting business and serving as CEO for DeDonato Enterprises, LLC.

A Forbes.com contributor, he has been interviewed by numerous podcasts, magazines, and online sites. Brandon Vallorani is a legendary figure in the entrepreneurial world and an astute businessman who proves the American dream can be achieved with hard work and vision. Holding dual citizenship with Italy, Vallorani’s permanent residence is located in Metro-Atlanta, GA, with his wife with whom he shares seven children, a son-in-law, and three grandchildren. In his free time, he enjoys traveling, his three dogs, and learning Italian.

“The wolves and the mandolin story has been passed down from generation to generation in my family. A great-uncle was on his way home from a party when he became surrounded by wolves. He climbed a tree, and rather than complain about his misfortune, he simply played his mandolin to pass the time. The beautiful music calmed the wolves and eventually they disappeared, allowing him to make it home safely.”

Vallorani says, “He could have lost a nasty battle trying to fight them. He could have whined about his bad luck, even given up. But this tale reminds us that beauty can be found even in the midst of growling wolves, and that even the fiercest wolves can be calmed. We all face wolves, and we all have opportunities to find mandolin moments in our day and it’s these mandolin moments that make fighting the wolves worthwhile.”

Purveyors of Mandolin Moments

At this stage in my life and adventures, I want to share the privileges of life with others, to remind them that life is for enjoying, and every moment we have is a gift.

Watch the sun rise, and celebrate the new day with a great cup of coffee. Enjoy a relaxing interlude with a great cigar, or better yet, with a good friend and two cigars and a great bottle of wine. Take the time to listen to the music of the mandolin because even the most beautiful song can’t last forever. Savor the privileges of life and share them with those around you.

As “Purveyors of Mandolin Moments,” we invite you to fill your life with details that will distinguish your life from the rest such as freshly roasted craft coffee, hand-wrapped Nicaraguan cigars, and imported Italian wine from Abruzzo.

Brandon is one of the most energetic, positive, entrepreneurial business leaders I have ever known. Add to that, he has the highest integrity, is generous and fair to his employees, and sticks to his deeply rooted and well thought-out conservative ideals and principles. Brandon walks the talk, he gets things done, he tries things, he’s not afraid to fail, and he surrounds himself with good people. He above all is enjoyable to be around and to work with as a client and partner. I can’t say all these things about many people. (Jack C.)

Brandon is an extremely skilled management leader as well as an incredible marketing guru in my opinion. I have no idea how he does all he does and manages the many companies he owns. He’s good to work for and with. I would give him the highest recommendation without reservation. (Ralph B.)
