About Me

Dreams Inspire Reality Podcast is a podcast for creatives looking to turn their dreams into reality with practical strategic steps from everyday people and entrepreneurs who are living their best lives possible.

Success is not a one size fit all and I wanted to highlight people like you, who are simply just living their best life and being the best version of themselves and more importantly defining their own success. I started this podcast for those who are still finding their way in this ever learning maze called life.

This podcast will provide the necessary steps to execute your ideas, highlight mistakes to avoid and more than anything provide inspiration for other creatives. We can learn from the stories of our fellow creatives/business owners and this podcast will help us and all of our listeners take practical steps to accomplish our goals, thus turning our Dreams into Reality!

“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” -Harriet Tubman, I have always been a dreamer.

My dreams were always tangible goals and aspirations I had for myself and even so much more for the ones I love. One of my favorite scripture and something I live by is; So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.-
James 2:17

My name is Tara Darnley and I am a wife, mom, daughter, sister, and friend. Each day through my many roles and titles, I try to incorporate this attitude and mindset. Necessity is the mother of invention is an old proverb and very much true for me. Our daughter forced us into entrepreneurship; we saw a need for a teether at the time that she would not need to hold and that birth the idea of our first invention, the Yummy Mitt® teething mitten.

Together my husband and I are Co-Founders of Darlyng & Co., an award-winning Eco-Friendly baby brand. National attention has come our way via features on the Steve Harvey Talk Show, Marie Claire, Black Enterprise, What to Expect & Newborn and Pregnancy Magazine to name a few. Sold and distributed worldwide. Nominated Black Enterprise Small Family of the Year Award 2018.

Like many, I worked in a toxic work environment and definitely did not want to return to that atmosphere after our first child. I did not want us to miss any important milestones in our daughter’s life and this motivated me more than any other thing to make sure we had a successful and profitable company to enable both of us to do so. With little capital, I was persistent in pushing forward, even if that meant filing and securing our own patent and trademarks through extensive research. Our kids inspire us daily. 

Dreams Inspire Reality is an extension of us, we believe in helping others succeed. Whatever success may look like to them. I wanted to launch a podcast that would highlight everyday creatives and entrepreneurs living their best lives possible. Sharing practical and strategic tips. Are you ready to turn your dreams into reality?
