From growing up with learning disabilities, to barely passing public high school, to living on the streets and on welfare, to multiple suicide attempts – Darren Jacklin thought he was fated for failure. Throughout his upbringing, he was repeatedly told that his disabilities would forever keep him from amounting to anything. For years, he struggled under the weight of these labels, accepting this as his destiny, until the pivotal moment when someone believed in him. This gave him the power to believe in himself for the first time and completely reshape his life. Darren has since trained over one million people in forty-eight countries across four continents including one hundred fifty-seven Fortune 500 companies. As an Independent Board of Director with eXp World Holdings, INC. (Nasdaq: EXPI), he has rung the closing bell at Nasdaq twice. He also serves on other high-profile public and private Board of Directors. With his life partner and their family foundation, Leaders Yielding 2 New Knowledge (LY2NK), their mission is to expand global philanthropy. Darren shares his transformative experiences that have allowed him to find purpose as a successful corporate trainer, world-class speaker, and investor in both real estate and business. This insightful memoir takes you on a journey of successes and failures from the perspective of someone who knows what it’s like to give up on life, yet has still achieved immeasurable results. Darren’s life has been transformed by embodying persistence and “Until I Become” is centered around this theme in hopes of inspiring you to do the same.
