“Darnell is fantastic. He was very easy to talk with and provided some initial guidance in terms of brand strategy and market validation of the product that I am working on. I found him extremely open and willing to give feedback related to professional growth but also personal development. I look forward to putting his suggestions into action and speaking with him in the near future.”
- Kelli Ogunsanya | Founder of Melababies Skincare & COO at STRIDE Community Health Center
"Darnell was incredibly motivating, and a joy to speak with. He was personable and responsive. His power-hour sesh (I hired him for two hours) was informative and helpful. Darnell was beneficial to me in a few ways. 1) He provided me with information about pricing and perceived value, 2) He brought up market research and came up with a way to gather and utilize that information, and 3) Gave me a list of things to do to lay the groundwork before I take my first client. I appreciated that he left me with organized information that I could independently continue with and offered workshops to join in the future. Thank you, Darnell!"

Trusted Advisor at ARM Financial
“Darnell helped me get past my final logistical and mental block to launching my business, and for that I am eternally grateful! It's funny, his advice was to change the logistics of my plan slightly, and all of a sudden the right way to proceed became clear and I had no more internal barriers of resistance! I actually ran across him in a search for VA's (which he's not lol) on Upwork and was so touched by the energy he exudes, I felt compelled to connect even though I wasn't looking for a coach per se. Fast forward a few weeks and we had a 2-hour session that blew my mind. His kindness and pureness of spirit is palpable! If you are a new entrepreneur he is exactly the one to lead you in creating your business. I'm excited to share my future successes with you Darnell, thank you!!!"
“I was connected to Darnell by a close, high-achieving, high-motor friend. One of THE best connections I had in 2020. I had the pleasure of experiencing a brand-intensive session as well as some life & business coaching sessions to connect the myriad of business dots I had in motion. Darnell is super-cerebral and is adept at listening and asking piercing questions that allow you to mine the depths of your own chaos; it's couched in a process that yields clarity, actionable items, and deliverables. Honest, astute, candid, collaborative, and super personable, this professional is highly recommended for the high achiever looking for ultra focus in personal life and business branding. He's like Merlin the Magician, with it! Thanks, Brougham"
