Everyone has to go through problems. But can it be more problematic than undergoing two heart surgeries, living in financially difficult conditions, but still making it to the top? Dantré Taylor has gone through all that and still managed to come on top!
Famous as “Kid Kash,” he was born in Manchester, New Hampshire. His marketing interest has earned him the title of “Global Marketing Icon” when he is only 19. Even more, he is a candidate for the 2025 NFL Draft. His passion of helping others around him and becoming the best version of himself have made him reach this spot.
He still remembers his humble beginnings of living in a financially struggling household and surviving that life. His right life choices have guided his path to victory. His interest in becoming a student-athlete encouraged him to play football and various other sports. But he focused on sharpening his football skills, which helped him earn fame and made his way to the competitive world of marketing.
He gained popularity for being a good footballer in his middle school. He got admission to Holderness School for playing football nationwide and having a great interest in studies. Even the colleges were willing to include him in their football team in the future.
But things took a wild turn when Doctors told him that he’d undergo a 2nd heart surgery. He couldn’t play football for one year. After returning to his school, he got to know that their 11-man football team will no longer. He took the difficult decision of returning to his old school, where life was difficult for him. But he survived and led the football team of his school to win their first state-level championship and the Bishop Bowl. Playing alongside the winning team of New Hampshire’s Catholic School Championship is also one of his greatest achievements.
But this is not all. At 14, Dantré invested his $800 gift from joining the middle school in reselling sneakers and clothes. He managed to make over six figures with this venture. He also entered the world of Forex and started learning traditional marketing techniques. He recognizes that playing football and sticking to it helped him develop the temperament to succeed in whatever he does in life.
COVID-19 made him focus on his life goals of becoming a professional footballer and taking his business to new heights. He made a quantum leap by setting up his new marketing agency in mere two months. Now, only 19, he is handling a business that earns more than seven figures! He owns Excel Enterprises – consisting of Excel Solutions, Excel Capital, and Excel Experiences. He and Garrett Mandigo are working on their talent management venture.
Dantré draws inspiration from people like Kanye West, Gary Vee, and Charlie Jabaley. He wants to build America’s largest indoor sports complex to help kids in the same condition as his childhood. He wants to get more focused on philanthropy as he brings more revenue.
His routine includes taking classes, giving consultancy and contacting new people, and spending jolly time with his girlfriend. And he wants everyone to pursue their dreams – no matter how difficult it gets to stick with them.
