Darren’s early childhood years, inspired him to mentor entrepreneurs and business owners in 48 countries. At the formative age of one, his four-year-old sister died from complications due to open-heart surgery. This greatly impacted his family. From an early age, Darren had difficulty reading and writing and was diagnosed with ADHD. Following High School, he tried multiple suicide attempts. And then he was a passenger in a car that went out of control on an icy hill and rolled over a forty-foot embankment which caused him to be ejected through the windshield of the car. That day, Darren nearly lost his life. It then took him months to learn how to walk again. Following those challenges and setbacks, Darren decided to see a psychologist that encouraged him to register for a Dale Carnegie Training Course. While in that program, Darren met Sue Urquhart, the general evaluator, whose belief in Darren changed the trajectory of his life; https://darrenjacklin.com/about-me/
