Jay:

It s Jay McLean here and welcome to another edition of Life Master Series, the meeting of just normal people making extraordinary results. We can definitely gain a lot of Life Master Success Secrets from him so please join me now with Darren Stephens. So Darren, please tell us a little about yourself and what you do?

Darren: Well, I guess that s a pretty big statement. I m an entrepreneur and I have businesses all around the world. I started out when I left school at the age of 16. But actually, I had my first job or my first real business at the age of 13 and stumble into that. That was making chess sets and selling them in retail stores, which taught me a lot about business and everything else. Then at 18, I went on and set up my own company, and grew that to a turnover of around $12 million dollars a year. So, I learned a lot about business, and had heaps of mistakes along the way, but that s what made me a great entrepreneur. You can t get anywhere in life without making mistakes. As an entrepreneur, some of the greatest learnings and gifts I ve given myself are those mistakes, as that what s catapulted me in making a lot of money and become Â

more successful.

Darren: I started out in manufacturing, having a company doing shop fittings all around the world. That lead me going into personal development courses myself, which directed me into the path of personal growth, sales, marketing, and now I ended up becoming a marketing expert. But in order to grow my own business, I needed to do those. That led me into a whole new range of areas, where I got to work with Dr. John Gray and help put up the Mars Venus brand globally. We ended up building that to billion dollars in sales and got me to work around in over 36 countries. I ve set up different offices worldwide. Then that led me into publishing. I have my own publishing company. I m also involved in the internet in the big way, where I own an eBay company with some partners. I have a number of other different businesses, with partners in the U.S. and pretty much around the world. So, yes, I have had vast career doing many different things. Jay:

Fantastic! It s an unbelievable story.

Jay:

What do you think are the top things becoming an entrepreneur can achieve for you, or what has it achieved for you?

Darren: One of the things you can achieve as an entrepreneur is that most of us want more out of life. We either want more time, more money or more success, whatever success means to you. Because success doesn t necessary mean money to some people, so it s whatever you want more out of life. I think most of us want more than we have. As for me, becoming an entrepreneur gave me something I was looking for. Since I have 7 children, I wanted a lot of flexibility and freedom. But I left school at such a young age, so I always had that freedom and flexibility as I ve worked for myself. I ve never actually had a job other than that one when I first left school. Therefore, being an entrepreneur gave me the income and wealth I d wanted to create. I have the freedom and flexibility to travel around the world, and basically do what I want to do, such as spending more time with my kids and having a great lifestyle. Also, it gave me the opportunity to meet lots of famous people and learn from them. I ve

Darren: had the privilege to sit down with President Clinton, Tony Robbins and many other celebrities around the world, who are actually no different to you. I realized then, that we are all the same, and I guess that s one of the greatest tip I can share to all the people who are watching this program. It s something that will make you do really well as an entrepreneur and be able to have the things that you want out of life. So, it s very important that you acknowledge yourself as being special and that you re absolutely no different from me or any other famous people around the world. Start off by believing in yourself and trusting your own intuition, then just put yourself out there and do it. Don t ever think that President Clinton is any different to you or Dr. John Gray, even though he s done billions of dollars in sales on his books. We are simply all the same. If you begin to believe in yourself, then you can achieve those great things as well. The first thing to take note is back yourself. Obviously, spend more time and money on yourself, as well as learning from other successful people. For the people who are watching this and those who have joined your program, that s the first sign of success. They are following someone else who is already successful. As a matter of fact, that s how I became successful. Also, I ve had mentors whom I looked up to and learned from them, which made me become more successful. Now, I have a big following that looks up to me as you pass that knowledge down. Being a leader and entrepreneur, it s something that you do. That once you have created your own success and wealth, there s a part inside of you that you want to give back to others and help them on that journey. I know what it s like to be poor and broke as I came from a poor family. I didn t get there without some hard work but I ve had fun doing it along the way. I ve never done anything that I didn t love. So, discover what it is that you re passionate about, find some mentors in that field, and then go and simply do it. The key is taking action to actually do it!
