Why we created Talent Depot.

If you stay with your current game plan, the world will probably miss out on the best of what you have to offer.

The more research we did, the more we recognized that successful business leaders, top athletes, and innovative world-changers come from every walk of life and every type of circumstance. And yet, we saw countless people struggling—people who had the same skills and traits as those successful people.

We hated knowing that the misunderstood, overlooked, excluded, and rejected are most likely going to be doomed to a life half-lived. Even though they may have what it takes to succeed, they simply continue to knock on the wrong doors and trust the wrong guides, causing them to stay too long in unproductive academic pursuits, unsatisfying occupations and/or unhealthy relationships.

Imagine a world where you are discovered, seen, heard, included, respected, and valued for the best that is within you by the people and organizations that really matter most to your future success.

That’s a world that we didn’t want to exist just in our imagination—we wanted to make it a reality. Talent Depot is a place where it’s okay and safe to just be you. A place that helps you recognize and harness the strengths that you already have, and then use them to start achieving the hopes and dreams you have for yourself and your family.

And you won’t be doing it alone. Imagine if Jobs hadn’t met Woz, or Gates hadn’t met Ballmer, or Zuckerberg hadn’t met Sandberg. Talent Depot goes a step further, connecting you to great role models, guides, mentors, and organizations that help you grab the opportunities you deserve.

Now is the time to join and start your journey.
