Close Up Radio Spotlights Motivational Speaker Darci Lang

Regina, SK – Darci Lang has been a motivational speaker since she was 24 years old.

Born in Biggar, Saskatchewan, a town of 2,600 people, Darci’s mother was only 16, so until she was eight years old, she lived with her father, her first mentor.

“I get my entrepreneurial blood from my dad. He ran a Volkswagen repair shop in the backyard of our home,” recalls Darci. “I grew up working in my dad's garage.”

When Darci was 18, she packed up her Volkswagen Beetle and moved two provinces away to interview for a tuxedo rental company. From the first day she was hired, she sought mentors.

“Every day I had a leadership team of 125 years combined experience. They would all ask me the same question every day: what can I teach you today?” recalls Darci.

Pretty soon, Darci was running the store. At 24, she convinced the eleventh bank she walked into to give her a loan to buy her own store.

She got to know the bank manager really well. In his last year of retirement, he became another mentor for Darci.

Darci has had a 100% referral-based motivational speaking business for 28 years.

Now 52, Darci says her duty is to be a mentor to others, to pay it forward.

It's very hard to see what's good, the 90%s when you don't feel good, says Darci. ”You need to keep asking the person in the mirror - the only person you can control - “What do you need?” What do you need mentally, physically or spiritually to take care of yourself, so you can focus on what is good? Once you do the difficult job of making yourself happy then you can carry the 90% magnifying glass to work and see your job through a 90% lens.”
