About Founder - Darin C. Wright
Before launching TWG, I had a diverse career that included being a corporate consultant, college instructor,
corporate trainer, and parallel entrepreneur. Since launching TWG, I have expanded my skills by becoming
a certified coach in multiple areas including Life, Health & Wellness, Nutrition, and Spirituality. I also
become a Climate Reality Leader (environmental activist).
Over my career as a corporate consultant, I worked in various roles that included: business and technology,
strategist, project manager, software developer, system architect, and data strategist.
I worked with diverse clients that included startups to well known enterprises such as AT&T, JP Morgan,
Johnson & Johnson, Horizon Blue Cross & Blue Shield, NJ Sports Exposition Authority of NJ, New York Botanical
Garden, and Hackensack Meridian to name a few. I have worked with muncipalities, legal firms, and many start-ups.
I have served as a member of corporate merger, outsourcing, and market expansion teams.
I taught for two New Jersey colleges, one for over 15 years where I created and served as a program chair and
instructor for the following multi-course programs:
- Data Science Professional Program (formerly the SQL, Database & Development Program)
- Project Management Program (Based on PMI Standards)
- Marketing Program
- E-Commerce Program
In these roles, I designed and developed the programs and curriculum, and taught all of the courses.
In addition, I have taught a variety of professional development courses including but not limited to strategy,
innovation, web development, and 3 levels of Microsoft Office Productivity Software including Microsoft Project.
I was highly regarded as an instructor and resource by the college adminstrations and students, and often
requested by the college administration to teach courses.
The majority of my students were professionals seeking to enhance their skill set. I have also taught
senior citizens, advanced teenagers, at-risk teenagers, and returning citizens (formerly incarcerated).
I created ancillary programs to enhance the professional development and employment opportunities for my students
including the Bridge
internship, Integrated Learning
and APEX Capstone
As a corporate trainer, I provided training to employees at organizations throughout the NJ/NY/PA area. I served
as an instructor for the business relations & development departments for the two colleges where I taught
on-campus. I currently teach courses delivered by TWG entities in the areas of entrepreneurship development,
ideation, business strategy & transformation, personal and professional development, and health and wellness.
I work with organizational teams with clarifying their purpose and role within the organization to
elevate their performance and value and with individuals on their personal and professional vision and goals.
I have worked with teams in highly-stressed occupations on how to practice self-care
to reduce their stress levels.
Prior to building the TWG portfolio, I have launched multiple businesses over the years, which included retail
stores, women's full salon, personal computer sales, vending machines, etc. Right before TWG, I was in the process of
a yacht chartering business,
Relation Ships Yacht Charters (RSYC)
with my passion of being on/near the water. I planned on RSYC being my
final venture that would sail
me into retirement. After signing the contract for the initial yacht things
shifted causing me to delay the launch and ultimately dock the venture. It was during this period that two things
- I became aware of the environmental issues plaguing our oceans and more awarae of climate issues which led me
to become a Climate Reality Leader (environmental activist) and
- I was inspired to pursue the I M Possible Mall (I M) venture. Like RSYC, I M is aligned with a
passion of mine but it was also aligned with my purpose.
These two events led to the creation and evolution of the I M family of brands.
The I M concept came to me around 2004 but my path was diverted to pursue other ventures. I M is
the core of the TWG portfolio which includes RSYC. I M has positively impacted more lives than RSYC would have
accomplished as a standalone venture.
Background & Education
My diverse background and working with diverse clients have been invaluable in building TWG. Recognizing the
connection between my careers has provided the ability to detect the relationship between our brands. In addition,
I have directly been involved in the development of each brand. The process of consistently learning new skills
has kept me humble.
In a rapidly changing and transforming environment, having the ability to synethesize
opportunities, etc. is a critical. Serving in multiple roles and careers has made me better
in the others. Being an instructor, consultant, and entrepreneur makes me a better instructor, consultant, and
entrepreneur and ultimately an excellent coach. Everything is interconnected!
I make it a habit of tapping into my creativity as I found it enhances my strategic capabilities. Having the
ability to look at a blank sheet of paper and see a poem, story, or musical score is the same as
seeing new opportunities for products, services, and solutions. Everything is created twice, once in our
IMagination and again in our reality.
For my education, I completed the Executive Masters of Technology Management Master's program at Stevens
Institute of Technology and my undergraduate studies at the
U.S. Naval Academy. I also studied at Wharton, University of PA. I have taken a multitude of online business,
entrepreneurship, technology, healthcare, health, wellness, and
nutrition courses at institutions across the globe.
During the COVID-19 pandemic I was inspired to become a Global Climate Reality Leader (environmental activist), a certified life coach,
certified diet & nutrition coach, and certified holistic wellness coach; to complete the Diversity, Equity, &
Inclusion (DEI) in the Workplace certificate program at University of South Florida - Muma School of Business as
well as completing related DEI courses offered at other institutions. I also completed the New York State Citizen
Public Health Leader eertificate program at Cornell University as well as additional coaching certification
The Citizen Public Health Leader education will assist me in executing several community-based initiatives
that will be launched through the I M non-profit, I M University (I M U)
This additional education aligns with the I M overall vision which is to
uplift individuals, organizations, communities, and the environment.
Feel free to review my
I M Portfolio
The TWG portfolio is marketed under the parent brand I M
and is currently comprised of 4 rmajor entities:
The I M portfolio has over 100 brands at various stages of development consisting of independent businesses,
products, services, community development, and environmental initiatives. This portfolio reflects my personal
values and vision for improving, changing and transforming lives and the world.
If this seems like a lot, well that's not all of it. I am not a great spectator which works well for me because
life is not a spectator sport. Life lived on the playing field is a continuous experience of improving, changing,
and transforming, all fueled by continuous learning. You win, you lose, you learn, you continue on.
Pursue your passion and stay in a constant mode of creation. There is something majestic about creating something
new or different especially things that will outlast you.
So create something every day. A poem, a song, a joke, a meal, a solution. It does not have to perfect. Just
create with the intent to make the moment or life better! Live your life with intention, passion and purpose.
