Memphis Success is where Your Success is Memphis Success.
I interview local successful entrepreneurs throughout the mid-south to share their success story, lessons learned and guidance for you. See everyone has heard of Steve Jobs, Bill Gates and Fred Smith.
Yet, we have several local entrepreneurs here who stories are amazing that will inspire you to start and grow your business.
I’m Darnell Reid, the Editor at Large for Memphis Success.com and host of the Memphis Success podcast show.
I’m a Memphian born and raised here started in Binghampton and then early on moved to Cordova in a small neighborhood called Bridgewater, they called that the country back then.
See, I recall when I was 15 being so eager to start working like most teenagers, I wanted to buy a car, cloths and jewelry to impress the young ladies.
Yet, an older gentleman from my neighborhood, (I wish I could recall his names) made this challenge to me that blew my mind and has since changed my life.
He said “Instead of getting a job, how about your job is to create jobs”. Sounds simple now but at that time, I had never considered it and how I could positively impact my community. From that point forward, I wanted to be an entrepreneur.
My partner and I started two companies but they both failed. Yet, we learned so much from each business. Yes, we lost money but the education and experienced we gained was more valuable than the cost of my MBA.
Grandmother Johnson would tell me “Experience will always be a better teacher than book knowledge.” Each idea would take on greater financial risk but we kept moving forward to become entrepreneurs.
In 2010, we started Good Hands Community Care a successful and recognized in home care agency where we have served several clients and employed over 100 personal care associates.
So, I know and understand the challenges of LOSING MONEY, FAILING but TRYING again and again to get your business started to then ultimately see the fruits of labor come to reality. In 2013, I was recognized by the mayors of Memphis and Shelby County as a SBA Emerging Leader graduate.
