“Success is not something you pursue. Success is something you attract into your life because of the person you become.” 

As a kid, Darren Jacklin was told he’d never amount to much. As a child, he found friendships tough, he struggled with reading and writing, was diagnosed with ADHD, and was eventually enrolled into a special education class. 

But looking back, these early experiences created a resilience and determination that empowered him to succeed. He was going to prove everyone wrong. Today, Darren is a world-class speaker, a corporate trainer, and a philanthroInvestor, but it was a tough journey to get here. After high-school, he tried to kill himself on multiple occasions. He had to learn to walk again after a car accident, and he even became homeless in his early 20s - eating meals out of dumpsters. But after meeting the right mentor, Darren’s life changed for good. 

Over the last 23 years, Darren has had a global impact. He’s travelled across four continents and trained over 1 million people in 48 countries. He has an uncanny ability to help entrepreneurs and business owners increase their wealth and success by uncovering hidden assets and opportunities. It’s one of the reasons Darren sits on numerous advisory boards for multinational corporations and organizations. 

But as well as huge business success, Darren is also a passionate go-giver. His life is driven by service and as a philanthro-Investor, he’s helping to create schools in Kampala, East Africa. 

“People always say to me: "Darren, you're so lucky". I say: "NO! Luck is preparation meeting opportunity". I'm being a go-giver rather than being a go-getter.” 

Darren is a high-energy human with an infectious zest for life because “he’s not guaranteed to go to bed tomorrow night”. It’s impossible to not be pulled along by Darren’s urgency and passion. So if you want to know how to be super successful, he’s the man to show you. With a story of extreme highs and terrifying lows, Darren Jacklin’s life is a reminder of what’s possible for yours.
