Encouraged, with Derrick Miles


In this episode of Money Tales, our guest is Derrick Miles. Like many of us, Derrick has experienced the highs and the lows during his pursuit of happiness and purpose. Starting from humble beginnings, Derrick’s mom always encouraged him to dream big. He believed that becoming a CEO and making a lot of money would bring him happiness, and while he achieved that dream and made millions, Derrick felt like he was living paycheck-to-paycheck. He couldn’t figure out why he wasn’t happy. In a brave move to find himself, Derrick decided to try his hand at entrepreneurship, hoping to create a legacy for himself and his family. Things didn’t go smoothly. Just when life seemed darkest, his friends stepped in to support him. Their help and encouragement pulled Derrick out of his lowest point and gave him the strength to keep going.
