resilience and grit.
His entire life is like a string of successes borne from failure: writing his first book, Daring to Be Different, at 18 because he couldn't find a summer job; gaining acceptance to Harvard Law School after a series of denials; becoming an attorney and passing the bar after failing it the first time; creating his first company at 24 after a string of bad business deals.
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. His newest book, Come. Back. Swinging., is based on his own personal story of resilience and redemption.
