Today we’d like to introduce you to David Burroughs II.
It’s an honor to speak with you today. Why don’t you give us some details about you and your story. How did you get to where you are today?
My name is David Burroughs II, an interdisciplinary creative, life coach, and a father of three amazing children - Davion, Nayari, and Amaris. My background is in graphic design, which has definitely helped keep my creativity alive over the years. It actually came in handy when life got crazy and I needed to be creative in the process of rebuilding and rebranding myself. Years ago, I was known by the artist name “DAVID 2.0”. Today, the brand has taken on an expanded context, in that there is a higher self that I aspire to be. Under the “2.0” banner came the launch of my creative coaching community, Dear Future Self. It was the product of a dream I had in 2015 in which I met my future self.
I’m sure your success has not come easily. What challenges have you had to overcome along the way?
One of the most impactful seasons of my life was when I realized that I had to start completely over. Within the time span of about five years, I experienced financial ruin, job loss, and the dissolution of a 14-year marriage. But instead of choosing despair as my destination, I chose to turn my mess into a Message and my failures into a new Future. I became a coach, shared my story, and became the possibility of resilience in Life and entrepreneurship. Some say that I’m too young to understand the things that I do. Others say that I’m an old soul or must be “from the Future”. Either way, I believe that this is my life’s work.
Let’s talk about the work you do. What do you specialize in and why should someone work with you over the competition?
I’ve worked with individuals from every walk of life entrepreneurs, coaches, musicians, and ministries. What makes me an ideal coach is a powerful listening and capacity for quantum thinking. Whatever your challenges, I am confident that we will uncover the keys to your personal Success together and in our sessions, we will dive deep to uncover what’s needed to create the “2.0” version of you for whatever challenges you face. My coaching is perfect for anyone looking to gain insight into persistent life challenges, exploring interpersonal relationships, rediscovering one’s Purpose, and personal brand strategy. From designing a business brand to designing a life, save yourself some time, energy, and money... Book that session!
What’s your best piece of advice for readers who desire to find success in their life?
The Future is yours, should you choose to create it! #CreateTheFuture
Speaking of success, what does the word mean to you?
Success is the progressive realization of a worthy goal. It is something that is created and realized by one’s self, which speaks to the necessity for self-awareness and transformation.
What’s next for you?
Besides a California Burrito? (Laughs) What’s next is the massive expansion of the DAVID 2.0 brand and Dear Future Self community! We are launching a brand-new podcast by the same name and have some incredible content lined up. We’re also working on a new coaching product, a mobile app, and my first book due out sometime in 2021.
