We had the good fortune of connecting with Darrell Bolden and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Darrell, how do you think about risk?
Risk well that’s something i did back in 2015 when i walked away from working a corporate gym job as a general manager for 6 years. I wanted to start my own personal training business i had wrote a business plan out and everything. I was planning for success. I wasn’t ready for all the risk that came with owning your own business. I failed twice lost my house car everything. Did some investments and didn’t get anything in return. What i learned from that experience is not allowing people to distract me and doing it my way versus doing it there way.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
10 years i been self employed with my business dfitprofitness. Through the ups and downs of being a business owner there’s always lessons to be learn from each failure that took place. I kept believing in my vision even when some didn’t, i kept believing even when i had no support form anyone. I went from training for $20 sessions to what I’m doing now the growth the maturity i watched myself and my business grow. Even when people use you to get what they want out of you. I want people to know when you have a business idea and want to start your own journey. Do it your way, don’t let people distract you from your purpose your vision, and don’t tell your business to everyone keep it to your self only let people know what you want them to know. Stick to your guns stay focused.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Well I lived in Houston all my life. Well first we would workout lol that’s a must. Then head to the galleria area of Houston to trulucks best seafood i ever had. Then head over to lucky strikes beat bowling alley plus the drinks are great and music

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I want to thank Dewayne Malone for mentoring me and taking me under his wing to help me make my business better and making me a better business owner. He also introduced me to bodybuilding which i did for 7 years. I turned pro in 2016 In a organization called Musclemania. I want to thank Chuck BamFitness For great friendship and being a great supporter. I also want to thank all my clients that allowed me to train them and be apart of there fitness journey with out them it wouldn’t be no dfitprofitness.
