Darryl Drake is taking on a new way to find success by ditching the conventional ways. Drake is a visionary entrepreneur, skilled investor, and author who has built an empire with over a decade of experience, hard work, and focus. His business, the Tha Vibez movement, has allowed him to connect and mentor others by sharing his secrets of success and innovation.
Drake believes that “Network marketing is an unconventional way to create wealth.” Through his business, he can teach people without formal education and business knowledge how to take the opportunity to make the most money online. Growing up, he felt a stigma that we won’t be successful unless we go to school, work a 9-5 job, save money, and invest. By showcasing his network marketing, he’s able to teach a variety of people from different backgrounds, ages, races, etc., and help them find success with a simple blueprint.
Coming from where he grew up, Drake felt that there were not many opportunities to be creative, nor was he surrounded by people that weren’t able to become successful. Starting, he was able to find that he was good at connecting with people. “I found myself looking for people to hang with, to dream with, and start small businesses with. And as I went into my adulthood, I continued to use the connection and create philosophy.” By doing this, he found his niche in business to become successful.
While he’s able to teach and mentor others, Drake feels that preparing yourself mentally for the journey someone is about to embark on is the most important thing. “There is an expectation that you can have a balance of work, love, financial success, and healthy relationships, and that’s not always the case.” Drake continues by saying, “Truthfully, I don’t know any entrepreneur that can balance all these, typically you hyper-focus on one area and over compromise to get things done, then you create balance once your goals have been accomplished.”
Drake is hoping that he is closer to reaching his life-changing goal of helping others to become financially free within the next five to ten years. He sets a goal of 1000 families he wants to help with, especially breaking into the Spanish market. With his determination and grit, he feels as though he can make this dream a reality.
“As a black entrepreneur, I believe that we must create new conditions and new ideas about wealth and the world we live in our minds,” he said. “We can then enter into space where we really believe we can accomplish whatever we truly want to accomplish. And once we believe, we will move confidently towards the activity that is needed to become successful. Limitations in our minds are the most expensive thought that we can have as people. So let go of limiting beliefs, believe bigger faster and out-think and outworking the competition.”
