In 1994, Darryl Turner left his corporate position to start The Darryl Turner Corporation. Passionate about training and helping people become their best selves, Darryl knew he could develop a larger footprint, a successful sales force beyond the sector he currently served. Within his first year of operation, Darryl found success in the title industry and continued to develop his presence through the results and testimonies of some of the most influential within the industry.
After decades of unprecedented sales success in insurance, broadcasting, and advertising, on July 23, 2006 Will Bowen’s life changed forever…and so did the lives of tens of millions of people (so far).
On that day, Will invited 250 people to try and break the negative habit of complaining by going 21 consecutive days without uttering a single gripe. Will gave each person a purple bracelet to be used as a mindfulness tool.
His idea: switch the bracelet from wrist-to-wrist with each spoken complaint and keep switching until you go 21 consecutive days without complaining. Will’s idea EXPLODED around the world until now, some 15 year later, the worldwide Complaint Free bracelet total is over 13 Million and climbing.
Will Bowen’s 21-Day Complaint Free challenge has been recommended by Oprah, Maya Angelou, Dr. Oz, Tim Ferris, Joe Vitale, Gary Zukov, The Wall Street Journal, NBC’s Today Show, the ABC Evening News, NPR, and too many additional celebrities and media outlets to include here.
