For the twelfth interview of The Success Bug Podcast, we welcomed Brennen Bliss, the 21-year-old Founder, and CEO of PixelCutLabs, a multi-million dollar, award-winning SEO agency. Brennen has been featured on platforms like Bloomberg and SpeakerHub and has used his policy of transparency to build a winning team in PixelCutLabs.
Why You Should Know Brennen Bliss
From a young age, the concept of building things fascinated Brennen. He created his first computer at just thirteen years old (something he thinks is unimpressive, but is). Growing up as a “social outcast,” one of the most critical lessons Brennen passes on to young business owners is to be yourself, unapologetically, and to aggressively manage your finances.
His first job was at Kroger, where he quickly learned that he never wanted to work for anyone again. Not because he didn’t want to, but because he simply couldn’t. You see, Brennen Bliss, like many entrepreneurs, realized at a young age that he either needed to create success for himself or that it would never find him.
Thanks to his habit and talent for building, he took an interest in search engine optimization or SEO.
For context, SEO is the process of improving the quality and quantity of website traffic to a website or a web page from search engines. SEO targets unpaid traffic rather than direct traffic or paid traffic. Not only that but its what Brennen used to create PixelCutLabs, a multimillion-dollar company. By servicing eCommerce websites in their quest(s) to drive traffic, PixelCutLabs solves a major pain-point for many young business owners.
To learn more about Brennen’s incredible journey, the pitfalls along the way, and what he wishes he could have known when he first started PixelCutLabs, you know what to do. Download Episode 12 of The Success Bug Podcast below.

“SEO gave me the opportunity to make more money, essentially. I’m not going to sugar coat it; it was 100% the money.”
“It’s appealing when you realize that you do a lot of work upfront to get things in place. And then its easier to manage on an ongoing basis when you’re doing the same thing every month.”
“It took me at least a couple of years to figure out what I was doing.”
“I’m a very transparent person. It’s how I run my company, based on Ray Dalio’s principle of radical transparency.”
“My best advice is always to go and talk [entrepreneurship] out with someone who’s been through that path.”
“Don’t overextend yourself. I’ve done that far too many times. Whether it be debt, payroll, service offerings, anything. Find something you’re good at, and do it well. Don’t put yourself at too much risk from a financial perspective. Build slowly, effectively, and profitably.”
