Darren Vinnett - Core Club Room Volunteer
Hi, I'm Darren, a motivational speaker, business consultant, and start up business coach. At fourteen I started my first business designing and printing T-shirts and signs in my parent's backyard. Creativity coupled with persistence helped me build a premiere printing and promotion business in the South Louisiana region. Over the past thirty some years, I have been the creative mastermind in helping to launch and increase sales for some of the
world's most famous festivals, events, and ministries. In 2005 and 2006, back to back tragedies brought a halt to my business aspirations as Hurricane Katrina devastated the New Orleans area, and my wife of 16 years was diagnosed with breast cancer, passing away just six months later, leaving me to parent our children alone.
Great loss propelled me to redefine my life's work. I found new significance in teaching, training, and encouraging others to excel, not only in the business arena, but in life, bringing a message of hope and inspiration to many. I travel internationally, provoking aspiring entrepreneurs and leaders not to settle for the average and common, but to shift to the next level of excellence. God has blessed me with my wife Kierra, we live in the New Orleans with our four children. I believe that if you do the difficult, God will do the impossible!
