"From growing up in Baltimore City to graduating from Harvard Law School,
you can say I know a bit about overcoming odds. I've had more failures than successes, and it has been the dark moments that made and molded me most.
Since I wrote my first book at 18, my lifelong mission has been to encourage people going through tough times. Because I know what's it's like to lose everything, to be counted out, to be passed over. Because I know what the stinging feeling of shame and guilt is, for it to look as if there were hopeless.
But I also know what it's like to rise above adversity and to come back stronger -- regardless of whether it's a tragedy that happened to you or a crisis that occurred because of you.
I teach people how to reposition, rebuild and reemerge better. I teach people how to come back swinging!"

As a young child, growing up in Baltimore City, Darrell learned early on about the value of persistence,
resilience and grit. His mother, an Army nurse, would always remind him, "Mind over matter - if you don't mind, it doesn't matter."
At 17, he was accepted to Morehouse College, the alma mater of Dr. King. That next year, as a sophomore, he wrote his first book, Daring to Be Different: 25 Tips for a Life of Success.
In 2007, Darrell graduated from Morehouse College as valedictorian. In 2010, he graduated from Harvard Law School as class marshal. Shortly thereafter, he moved to New York City, where he would eventually become an attorney, university professor and business owner.
Darrell has had an incredible life story and has openly shared his experience of strength, hope and transformation with audiences around the world. In 2019, he released his newest and most transparent work yet, Come. Back. Swinging.: A True Story of Resilience and Redemption. Following the success of the book, Darrell created Come Back. Swinging.™, a series of trademarked high-impact products and services dedicated to helping people bounce back from adversity, personally and professionally, re-build, re-position and reemerge more successful.
Today, Darrell continues to encourage, empower and educate audiences around the world. He lives in New York City and is a managing partner of The B-Squared Global Group.
come. back. swinging.
Come. Back. Swinging.: A True Story of Resilience and Redemption, Darrell's third and most recent book, is a powerful and transcendent "coming-of-age" story.
This is a no-holds-barred story of Darrell's life, growing up in Baltimore city; graduating from Morehouse College and Harvard Law School; childhood issues; struggling to find purpose as a young adult, slipping into an abyss of depression self-destruction; losing everything; fighting his way back, his restoration and ultimate transformation.
daring to be
Daring to Be Different: 25 Tips for a Life of Success is Darrell's first book, written when he was 18 years old. It is perhaps more relevant today than ever before, because of the social media, the overwhelming obsession to be "liked" and the crushing pressure to conform.
This is a powerful message to the world about the transcendence of authenticity, a reminder that your uniqueness matters, that make sets you apart is precisely what will make you successful. This is about identifying, appreciating and embracing yourself -- your whole self.
