One of the biggest things people I work with have a problem with is self-worth. It’s natural to only see your flaws, and value yourself less than everyone around you would value you at.

On this episode of the Have It All podcast we interview a man who struggled with this same problem – Darren Jacklin. His life was a wild ride, like something straight out of a movie.

He was told he was dumb, had a learning disability, and would never amount to anything when he was a child. This is something that he’s carried his whole life.

One day he was at a mastermind and learned how much more people valued him than he did. By shifting his mindset he went from asking to speak for $250 a day to speaking for 100 times that!

Today, Darrin Jacklin World-Class Professional Speaker, Corporate Trainer, Investor.
