Our Mission

Hey there!

My name is Derrick and I'm the founder here at Struggle HQ. I want to share with you why I built Struggle HQ and our story on how we came to be.

Hey there!

How it all started..

As an entrepreneur, I traveled to many many different cities around the world for work. During these travels, I knew I had to do one thing before I left each city.. and that was to hold a cool meetup with my audience & supporters from social media! So I would announce where I'd be at a specific time and location, and to my surprise, people actually showed up!

How it all started..
How it all started..

I began to notice..

As I continued to hold these awesome meetups in different cities, I started to notice something very profoundly. And that was everyone who came didn't just show up because of me, no. They showed up because they believed something within themselves. They believed that in someway there was more to life. That there was something more for them out there. Otherwise.. they would have never bothered to even show up.

I began to notice..

When I knew something special was going on..

After doing these meetups that would last for only a couple of hours, taking cool photos and drinking some nice hot coffee, there was one feedback that every single person would tell me. And it was this..

"Derrick, the energy and vibes with everyone here is amazing. I feel empowered and I feel like I'm actually not crazy!"

And this struck me because I felt the exact same way even though I was the one hosting the meetup!

So I decided..

I told myself, you know what.. I love the energy everyone feels in these meetups, why not just host my own event?! That way, we don't have to be stuck outside in a random park or loitering outside a cafe shop!

And so I did! I held my very first event, (yes we had coffee for everyone) called Struggle & Coffee, in a small gym studio and let's just say.. I was not prepared for how many people would actually come!

We had so much people, over 150 to be exact, I had to make everyone sit on the floor! (So sorry if you came to this event and felt uncomfortable!)

This energy continued on where people would have the ability to meet other like-minded individuals and share their stories with them. Some even became life long friends and business partners. But more importantly, people felt capable..

So I decided..
So I decided..

It was only right I held a second one..

After the first event, people would message me every single day asking when I'd host another one. And so I did a couple months later! This time in a more organized setting (not sitting on the floor) and had food, drinks, and even had my mentor come and speak!

It was only right I held a second one..

I asked myself this very important question..

After all this traveling holding meetups around the world, and hosting events that empowered people to grow and become more..

I started to notice a problem. The problem was these meetups and events were only temporary and would only last for a couple of hours.

So I began to think and I asked myself this very important question..

"How can I create an environment and atmosphere for people where this energy and empowerment stays permanent?

And that right there.. is when Struggle HQ was born.

I asked myself this very important question..

I made a commitment to the cause..

Struggle HQ was built upon the idea and understanding that we are all capable of achieving the greatest version of ourselves through work and camaraderie.

Our mission is to create a dynamic atmosphere and culture that promotes collaboration, productivity, personal growth, and more importantly, winning.

We understand how important achieving your goals and dreams are.

We understand how important being surrounded by like-minded individuals can influence you to move in a more positive direction.

We understand how important an empowered environment can help drive you to perform at your highest level.

Allow us to be that space for you.

If you are a person who strives to become better every single day, you will always have a place with us.

We believe in possibility. We believe in winning. We believe in being the best. We believe in greatness. We believe in people.

But more importantly, we believe in you.

This is Struggle HQ.
