"Do something different
to get something different, even when you are your biggest believer!"
Daniel Destine, born and raised in Silver Spring, MD, has gone through some very trying times at a young age, coming from times where he can remember "being overweight and being counted out in many things as a kid" and "even being depressed at some points" in his adolescent life, experiencing many different responsibilities from being a son of a family who comes from Haiti and Trinidad & Tobago, an older brother, an entrepreneur, an artist, and a producer all while trying to be a light to his loved ones all while he is still learning himself how to maneuver through this game they called life. He overcame the emotions felt within because he said he stopped taking advice from people that had a lifestyle he did not want for himself. Daniel graduated from Towson University with his degree in Business Administration - Project Management and Business Analysis. Before graduating, he co-founded the movement Struggle Before Success with Tyrell Brown. Their initial vision was to show millennials how to get rich the legal way, but then it became so much more than that. Since graduation, Daniel decided not to search for employment but to self-employ himself with the education, resources, and skills he has learned and acquired. He has been helping businesses with their social media and digital marketing, creating music and beats independently from the beat to the lyrics to the mastering of the track, and teaching people how to create generational wealth through our platform with SBS. Learn how you can get involved with SBS and create generational wealth for you and your family because if Daniel can do it at such a young age then so can you! "It's not about the money, its about what the money can do for you and those you love."

NICHOLAS & NATHAN BURNS
"The person who follows the crowd, will usually go no further than the crowd."
Nicholas and Nathan both grew up in Southern Maryland living in a single family household, with their Mother and Father. The parents both worked diligently in their fields and had success in what they were doing collectively. Prior to the twins starting high school, their parents separated; which led to many financial hardships during school. The challenges faced at home were used by the twins as fuel to push hard for a successful future. They both played basketball at Oxon Hill High School, and were apart of the Science and Tech Program. After graduating, Nick and Nate went to school to pursue a career in Information Technology. While working full time in their respective field, they went into business part time to start working on building a family legacy together as twins. Currently with their work within SBS Global, their goal is to impact many lives positively for the future and to make a difference globally.
