“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; I can do all things through Christ, which strengthened me- Philippines 4:13.

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.

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?
