FORT WAYNE, IN / ACCESSWIRE / February 27, 2020 / At some point in their lives, each entrepreneur featured in this piece has been uncertain about their future, doubted, or swayed away from their mission to impact people by the masses. What each of these entrepreneurs also have in common is the fact that they all have shown resilience and a refusal to give up. Through countless hours of grind and hard work, they have achieved success and a life built around their passions. It goes to show that if these people can achieve their dreams, then you can as well.
Luc Longmire, Forex and Network Marketing
Luc Longmire has long believed in the idea that no one else should be able to determine his worth, tell him when he needs to show up to work, take lunch, and so on. He wants to be in full control of his destiny, and today he is able to do just that. He day trades forex and crypto currency, and couples that by introducing this craft to thousands of hopeful entrepreneurs around the globe. To get to where he is at today, however, Luc has overcome hard times and mental struggles to find massive success. As a young adult, he developed an unfortunate addiction to painkillers after being prescribed to them after surgery. He ultimately wound up serving time in jail as a result of his dealing drugs, but his life all changed during his time there. He discovered “Think and Grow Rich”, and knew that he had what it took to become financially stable and turn his life around.
After rehabilitation, Luc took a position at Lowe’s and quickly took a promotion to become a manager. He leveraged this experience to become a manager at a Gold’s Gym, and became an experienced salesman during his time there. All of this experience prepared him to take full advantage of the opportunity to work in forex and network marketing when the venture was proposed to him. The saying that luck is where opportunity meets preparation certainly held true in this situation, as Luc’s recent experience managing a gym and selling its services prepared him to thrive in a marketing position at the company while he mastered trading currencies. Luc’s life today is far from average. He spends a lot of his time traveling the globe preaching the beauty of day trading, and puts his spiritual well being first as he tries to make the memories that make his soul rich.
Nick Rogers, Business Driven Dream
Business Driven Dream looks like a business education powerhouse on social media, but it was founded by one man, 20 year old Nick Rogers. Nick had a vision to follow his passion and put his skills to work in his own venture. In October of 2018, BDD was founded on the idea of building a meaningful entity that will leave a massive impact on the industry, and not out of the interest of making a quick and easy profit at the expense of others. Utilizing his marketing skills he gained while running a dropshipping venture, Nick scaled the page to 100k followers organically in just 4 short months. It was becoming more and more apparent that Rogers’ decision to drop out of the University of Pittsburgh after just 2 months was the perfect decision.
Fast forward to today, and BDD has a strong presence on both Instagram and Twitter, with a website just recently launching. The website features articles from contributors, current business news, and courses curated by industry leaders catered to anyone regardless of experience. Within the next few years, the BDD website has the potential to become an industry leader in the business education niche and leave an impact on people by the thousands. With all of the networking Rogers has done growing his brands’ social media presence, he has made some dynamic connections. This networking has lead him to a new venture with a partner, Pvsted Media. Pvsted is a marketing agency that specializes in growing brands on social media for clients, which Nick is undoubtedly well versed and experienced in. In 2019, growing a personal brand is essential to finding success in any industry, and Nick is looking to solve this problem with Pvsted. With BDD and Pvsted Media on full tilt moving forward, it would be hard to say that Nick Rogers won’t become a force in the industry in the near future.

Combining his passion for interacting and connecting with others with being fully in control of his business as an entrepreneur, Westbrooks set out to launch his own company.
iGrowClub was the result. Westbrooks founded the company on the premise of helping to grow his clients’ social media presence organically by working with them to identify their brand mission statement. By handling the marketing, Henry’s clients are able to devote all of their attention to the day to day operations and creating content for social media. Westbrooks also founded the Health and Wealth show, an enlightening podcast that focuses on spirituality and mental well being. The guests he brings on are empowered to share their stories, visions, ideas and journeys and Henry covers topics ranging from business to relationships, pop culture and upcoming trends. With a dynamic business slated to crush the industry and a podcast that allows him to express himself and decompress, Henry Aaron Westbrooks epitomises a well balanced, healthy adult life.
Jerome Clarah, Forex and FreeMinds
Jerome Clarah has always sought balance. He always saw a lot of people with money and no time to enjoy it, and people who had plenty of time but no money to have at their leisure. Seeing this, Clarah knew he wanted to find a way to have a balance between the two. As a result, he picked up a venture in the forex markets. Over the past 3 plus years, he’s been growing his income trading and has become a leader in the affiliate marketing industry. He’s fallen in love with not only being able to make money trading for himself, but to have the ability to help others around the world financially.
Not long after, FreeMinds was born out of Clarah’s passion for marketing and working with others. FreeMinds focuses on helping clients build their brand through photography, videography, website building, and consulting. The company is still in the startup phase, and Jerome is taking his time to ensure that it’s set up perfectly for launch so that as he scales, the company will still be able to bring massive value the same way that it currently does with its small client base. On his success thus far, Jerome said that surrounding himself with people who share a common future rather than a common past is critical to leveling up and being pushed to your limits. So far, that strategy has clearly been paying off for him.

Brad Walston, Walston Ventures
Brad Walston’s work ethic isn’t something new. Ever since he was forced to support himself in high school after his mom left him to fend for himself, he has worked for everything he’s gotten. After graduating college, Brad opened his own firm that focused on helping people in his community obtain mortgages for homes, something he was extremely passionate about. Following that, he became a Phoenix police officer and worked hard to make an impact on the kids in his community. Regardless of what he’s involved with, he puts his passion behind his work and ensures that those around him are a higher priority than himself.

Jake Havron, Personal Wellness Coach
Jake Havron has always had a passion for fitness and physical wellness. With both playing college basketball and being a nursing major, he was constantly immersed in fitness and health science. After playing for a Hawaii pro basketball team that eventually folded, Jake was initially devastated. But, it ended up being a blessing in disguise, and lead to a major paradigm shift in his life. He began following his dream of being a personal trainer, and he started to realize that helping people stay healthy enough to stay out of the hospital would be much more rewarding than working as a nurse in a hospital helping people that are just looking to get back to full health. He began pouring his heart out into his work, helping clients physically, mentally, and emotionally. He didn’t even feel like he was working at all, which only confirmed to him that this is what he was meant to do.
One day, Jake had another major life shift come in the form of a new client. A woman in a wheelchair came in seeking his service, and he was able to help her see amazing results in a short time frame. As a result, he launched a full online training program for people with disabilities, Disability Icon. Fast forward a few months, and Jake is in Southern California pursuing his full time dream of impacting people by the masses with his online training course while going after his passion of acting and modeling on the side. Jake knew that working long overnight shifts at the hospital would not allow him to come anywhere near impacting the amount of people he aspired to. By being an entrepreneur, he has been able to be in control of his life and his career, knowing he can work tirelessly on his purpose and passions.
Darryl Drake, Strategy Academy Pros
Darryl Drake has always been in the business of helping others through his business. While his initial company that he scaled to $40M by the age of 29 was focused in sales, he spent time running free seminars and speeches across the country teaching business expansion techniques and giving free advice on social media. Even with all of his success spanning over a decade, Drake’s relentless mindset simply would not allow him to settle. He decided to make a major change in his life, and launch a company that would be based on helping others. Strategy Academy Pros was the result. The company focuses both on helping people obtain business and personal credit and educating people on credit to ensure that they’ll never run into issues again.
Darryl’s passion for entrepreneurship stemmed from his childhood, where he’d help manage his mother’s clothing stores. He’s always been passionate about his business ideas, and unlike most people, he’s taken massive action on his ideas and seen success. He enjoys the flexibility entrepreneurship provides, even in failure. Darryl understands that failure is inevitable, and the most important part is to be candid even in failure. Too often, people are only willing to document their wins, and they give a false impression that entrepreneurship is always smooth sailing. Darryl is extremely conscious of this, and makes sure to be honest about his failures so that people can see his ups and downs and know that it’s all part of the process.
Shawn Anthony, Schools Over… Now What?
Ever since Shawn Anthony was a kid, he’s seen how lucrative being a successful entrepreneur can be. His older brother was involved with event promotion, and Shawn soon followed suit. It was going so well that there was an instance where Shawn left a party with a few thousand dollars in cash in his hand at just 14 years old. This made Shawn hugely aware of how valuable having good communication and marketing skills was.
