Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in business development but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Darius Gaynor, Founder of DollarPassion, located in Tampa, FL, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
DollarPassion is a drop-servicing agency business training and consulting company. My customers and students are beginners who want to launch their own agency businesses. I help them determine their niche, target audience, client acquisition strategies, and software to use.
Tell us about yourself
I first started working on DollarPassion during the beginning of the worldwide pandemic. I first created the drop servicing subreddit on Reddit and shared my story. It got over 100 upvotes, and the story helped grow the subreddit to over 5,000 drop services. Helping people make more active income from drop servicing and enjoying my content motivates me every day.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
My biggest accomplishment for DollarPassion so far was over 1000 downloads of my bundle guides and accelerator course program. My biggest accomplishment for my own latest agency was $25,000 in sales in one day.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
The hardest thing as a business owner is growing your own audience, being consistent even when you don't see good results right away, and seeing that success varies for every student.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
Suppose you are looking to start and grow your own agency business. You just need to start and stop getting stuck in the research phase. You need to niche down because the riches are really in the niches (I started with crowdfunding in my first agency). You need not be afraid to keep following up with prospects and ask for referrals. That's how you do not leave money on the table.
Where can people find you and your business?
