Status Labs uses various avenues including social media and Google search to find the negative image their clients may have and then work with and coach them to improve that presence. In his efforts to become a self sustained entrepreneur, Darius once embraced the advice, “Find the quickest line to the money.” This mindset allowed Darius to focus on selling the business and avoid everything else that fails to contribute to the growth of the business.
Though Darius graduated Vanderbilt University with honors, when he was a kid he wanted to be a baseball player when he grew up. He wanted to be able to travel and work for himself. He has now found a business need that allows him to travel and meet with clients and work for himself.
