How I can help you
Hi I am Darryl, and I am the creative force behind the Chrysalis4wealth, Inc enterprise. The C4W enterprise consists of Chrysalis LTS, LLC d/b/a Liberty Tax Service and Chrysalis Protection and Wealth Solutions, LLC (CPAWS) d/b/a CPAWS Insurance and Financial Services. As an entrepreneur, I bring to SCORE a strong leadership, mentoring, consensus building, and a "let's get it done" mindset which I gained through years of service as government servant. I am a (retired) veteran of the United States Air Force (USAF), with an additional 10 years as a Department of Defense and private industry civilian.
My true passion however has always been in helping others pursue financial, personal, and professional success, so in 2014 I resigned from government service to pursue my passion as an entrepreneur. My passion is fueled by the recognition that the successes I have achieved in life have been through the support and mentorship of family, friends and close associates. Although I am “just a common, hardworking ordinary guy” who like most has experienced life’s “ups” and “downs,” I attribute whatever measure of success I have had to the advice and guidance of those who have poured into me financially, personally, and professionally.
I am also a John Maxwell Certified Coach, Teacher and Speaker, offering workshops, seminars, keynote speaking, and coaching. I am fortunate to have worked in a profession which has made me well acquainted with the Maxwell leadership philosophy. I spent the better part of my career informally teaching people the principles of self-leadership in order to effectively lead others to accomplish the mission or achieve desired results.
Throughout my nearly 30-year career as a military, Department of Defense civilian, and private industry intelligence professional, John Maxwell’s leadership principles were instrumental in my professional development, career advancement, and ability to influence subordinates, peers and superiors. I had the great pleasure of leading, developing and/or mentoring young airmen, civilians, and occasionally officers appointed over me, not because of my title or position, but because of my commitment to the USAF core values.
The USAF core values of “integrity of action, service before self, and excellence in all we do” exemplify the Maxwell philosophy. I strive to live by them. I am committed to developing the same in others. Now as a SCORE mentor, I do professionally what has been a career-long informal endeavor and passion. If your goal is to find, cultivate, and develop the leader within you to start and/or grow a business, I’ll share what I know, but ultimately you will have to put in the work.
