Darin Zaruba is an award-winning, disruptive, visionary entrepreneur, marketer, author, speaker, and business development executive. Darin has been described as a ‘renaissance’ businessman with a vast knowledge and in-depth personal experience in multiple businesses and industries.

In Darin’s business ventures, he was always frustrated with other marketing firms, their focus, prices, eye to detail, and actual results. He founded a marketing company with two partners in 2001, primarily to gain control of the entire process for himself, his partners, and clients. This company grew for a couple years and was sold to a public entity looking for the same results. After a brief non-compete period, he developed WordUp! Marketing, LLC, with 9 Core Principals of business, and continues to offer services to select clientele.

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
