“I have recently worked with Darnell concerning the branding strategy for my new company. Darnell’s intellect, professionalism, and personability were just of the few of his qualities that set him apart from the competition. He speaks to you like a long-time friend while offering valuable information in manageable quantities. Darnell seeks to understand the situation and client before strategizing, which makes his feedback timely and applicable. He has my full support!”

"Darnell's coaching has helped me on so many levels. It was the catalyst in my life that made me believe I can do absolutely anything. He took my drive, hunger for a better life and taught me how to make it happen. He gave me personal, 1:1 coaching for a total of a year, teaching me the in's and out's of design and business. I went from working at a call center at the beginning of the coaching to owning a business at the end of it. I highly recommend this life-changing mentorship, you won't regret it!"

what I'll do for you

We're gonna make your brand sexier.

Through brand coaching, I’ll help your customers fall in love with you using honest, authentic storytelling. By deeply listening to your audience, you'll start to meet them where they are, so you can take them where they want to go. When your intentions match their expectations, that’s the g-spot, and that’s when you increase sales and earn loyalty.

The great thing about this approach is that it works across any industry - whether you’re a startup or an O.G. company. No matter what business you’re in, branding starts with trust. We all crave being heard and seen. We all want to be loved. And we all vote with our wallets. By becoming a more human company that adores its customers more than it loves what it sells, buddy, your brand's gonna skyrocket.
