Please allow me to introduce myself

Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Derrick Barber and I am an inspired entrepreneur and business minded individual. I operate an affordable web design company called London Ontario Web Design. I worked on growing this business for about a year while also working at a bar in the back office, helping out the owner with whatever she needed help with. After watching a year quickly pass me by, I realized I wasn’t going to reach my goals in this situation (ie: I was going broke). I needed to take my business to the next level. 

In order to bring the business to the next level, I planned to launch a new business simply called LOWD Media. LOWD Media is a full service advertising and design firm which specializes in offering everything a business startup needs when it comes to advertising and design in one spot. Along with Dave P. who is somebody I met while searching for a new sales manager, we dusted off my old business plan and made it something I could show to the small business center when looking for funding. They said it was a great start, but the length should be about double what I had. We revised the plan and I was introduced to the Canadian Youth Business Foundation. Other volunteer business minded individuals in the community gave me feedback on the business plan, I went through a friendlier version of The Dragons Den, and was able to obtain funds to launch my new venture. CYBF set me up with a mentor and here I am.

The reason I am creating a blog is because I want to share my experience of being an entrepreneur with people. I want to grow with other business minded individuals in the community. I want to help entrepreneurs when I can and I want other entrepreneurs to help me when they can help me. I want to share stories of success and lessons learned from failures. I encourage everybody who wants to share to do the same. I am by no means a Guru – yet… but as I touched on before, I have a lot of knowledge that can help entrepreneurs and am always willing to learn from other entrepreneurs as well.

Please join me on my journey to success and supporting the entrepreneurial spirit in Canada
