We stumbled onto Darren Hardy’s Compound Effect in 2012, and it changed our habits profoundly. Now, we’ve completed several of his success mentorships and trainings, and we’re about to share our favorite resources to help you live your best life ever!
Since we’ve been students of his for years, we were recently asked to be on his influencer team as well. So below you’ll find our honest review of the books and trainings we’ve done, as well as, our partner links.
Who is Darren Hardy?
Darren Hardy is our success mentor and our go-to personal development leader. We love his straight-forward approach to motivation and business development, and his track record in business is amazing.

Our Favorite Darren Hardy Quotes
- It’s not what you learn or what you know; it’s what you do with what you know and learn.
- Doubt and fear steal more dreams than failure does.
- Everything you need to be great is already inside you. Stop waiting for someone or something to light your fire. You have the match.
- What controls your attention, controls your life.
- Your main competitors are not others in your industry. Your main competitors are distractions. Don’t let them beat you – stay focused.
- Never ask advice of someone with whom you wouldn’t want to trade places.
- Motivation without action, leads to self-delusion.
- Broke people talk about people and problems. Rich people talk about ideas and goals. Your conversation chooses your destiny.
- Hang out with those who have a common future, not a common past.
- You will never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.
- Life begins outside the edge of your comfort zone.
- The thought, ‘I can’t’ is a lie. We use it to excuse ourselves from trying. Productivity isn’t magic. It’s discipline.
Why We Chose Him to Be Our Success Mentor
With so many “life coaches” and “girl bosses” out there, we are pretty skeptical about who really knows their stuff. Now more than ever before, it’s easy to consume information, start a business, and regurgitate that information as your own.
We wanted to choose someone that we knew was 10 steps ahead of us in his or her success.
This guy has been in different industries, interviewed 100s of successful people, and was a self made millionaire by 24. He’s now in his 40s, and he’s still hungry to learn more. That is the type of consistency and passion we want to learn from.
It was also important to us to find someone our personality jived with.
We’re not the people who love to dance at a conference or high-five our neighbors. We just want the information, so we can apply it and be in our jammies by 10.
He works with top leaders in the social media and online marketing field.
We really love what Gary Vee and Marie Forleo have done, and Darren has worked with them along with dozens of other top leaders in online marketing.
We also loved that Darren was mentored by Jim Rohn.
Jim Rohn is one of our other favorite personal development coaches. We listen to his Art of Exceptional Living every year!
The last reason we chose Darren was because of his heart.
He offers free resources every single day through Darren Daily and has this deep mission to help other entrepreneurs. He also is always learning and growing which means, he’ll always be leading from the front!
Who will like Darren’s Books & Trainings?
- Anyone looking to make lasting changes in their habits
- Men and women wanting to achieve more without sacrificing their sanity
- Entrepreneurs at any level of their business
How old is Darren Hardy?
Darren was born in 1971. So as of 2019, he’s 48 years old.
Darren Hardy Books
One of the things we love about Darren Hardy’s books is that he gives you action steps in each one. We usually just listen to books on Audible, but with these 3, we recommend having a paper copy you can write in!
As mentioned above, we started with The Compound Effect. This book is perfect for anyone – entrepreneur or not!
The Compound Effect focuses on small changes you can make each day to kickstart your income, healthy habits, and success.
These little changes completely changed our lives over the past 7 years.
