Dr. Terrance Bell is a veteran with a doctorate in behavioral psychology and a successful entrepreneur from Memphis, Tennessee. He is also an example of vision and perseverance.
Dr. Bell grew up in his grandmother’s house because his mother was ill for most of his childhood and eventually passed away due to breast cancer. As the oldest of six, Dr. Bell had to take some of the burden of responsibility.
When he was 17, Dr. Bell joined the Marines as a way to escape his situation. This started a new phase of his life, which was tough but it helped him grow. With the Marine Corps, Dr. Bell had to learn how to make decisions fast, learn fast and move fast.
After his time in the Marine Corps, he entered the corporate world for a while where he worked for different companies, and he earned his doctorate in behavioral psychology. Soon after, he started his own businesses.
Today, Dr. Bell runs an entrepreneurial conglomerate which comprises motivational tools and products, consulting, big data intelligence, augmented reality (AR), and financial technology. He is also a coach for multiple enterprises and companies, as well as a public speaker.
Along with vision, mindset was also key in Dr. Bell’s entrepreneurial ventures. He believes that mindset is everything and that clichés like “you gotta see it before you can achieve it” are true.
But there are still challenges to starting a business. Besides having or acquiring the funding necessary to build a business from the ground up, which is commonly a huge challenge, there are other challenges in the way.
Furthermore, Dr. Bell also argues that common obstacles such as fear are nothing to him. For him, fear is just false evidence appearing real, and so it means nothing to him. He does not think about it or focus on it.
Understanding that some days are good and some days are not so good, along with the other pieces of advice shared by Dr. Bell, will lead anyone to success. For Dr. Bell success is precisely what you achieve everytime you overcome a trial or tribulation.
This is also what differentiates Dr. Bell from his competition: he takes everything seriously and is always trying to be the best that he can be. He loves what to do and loves to deliver products and services that help people. He also takes the time to keep learning and growing.
At the moment, Dr. Bell is focusing on growing his financial services and fintech business, as well as helping people thrive in the new gig economy. He also has other plans in the long term.
