Justin J. Allen: The Ability to Find Business Opportunity in Everything




Recently, we had the unexpected pleasure of sitting down with one of our favorite entrepreneurs on the scene today, Justin J. Allen. For those of you just now hearing about Justin, he founded his first LLC back in 2013, in the world of executive security services, and has since managed to build it into an uber-impressive multi-million-dollar company. Not only that, but Allen also now helms a successful sports agency, in the form of DA Method Sports Agency, a related fitness clothing brand, DA Method Apparel (along with his business partners Darryl Wilson & James “AJ” Mason), and is preparing to launch his own barbershop, Premier Cutz, and adjacent bar, the Premier Lounge.

And in our little sit-down, when we asked him what his secret skill was, Justin correctly pointed at the ability to “find business opportunities in everything”. And judging from his impressive catalogue of successful business ventures, we can safely say he wasn’t kidding. While it’s true that the very concept of entrepreneurship speaks of versatility and adaptability, it’s still rare to find an entrepreneur with so many successful businesses in so many different areas of work. So, it’s fair to assume Allen does indeed possess a sixth sense for sensing business possibilities, one that he’s keen on sharing with young entrepreneurs in need of guidance.

According to Allen, he’s always been an entrepreneur at heart, though naturally, he too went through his fair share of disappointment, bad jobs, professional conflicts, and so on. And during that time, as well as in the first years of his career as an entrepreneur, he learned the importance of having a role-model. Someone there to guide you and steer you in the right direction. Not tell you where to go, because at the end of the day, being an entrepreneur isn’t about that, but rather, about finding your own values and your own path.

That’s what Allen is now looking to do for young entrepreneurs in need of a mentor – provide a helping hand, a word of advice, or even some guidance. And while a sixth sense for business opportunities can’t really be grown, it can be nurtured and developed, under the careful, watchful eye of an experienced mentor like Allen. It’s one thing to realize what businesses have potential and which don’t, and it’s nothing short of remarkable. Still, that’s not all a young entrepreneur will need to succeed in this world. They will also need help identifying what matters to them and finding their true entrepreneurial path.

Now, having established multiple successful businesses of his own, Justin J. Allen is in a place from which he can focus on giving. Naturally, he confided in us, he’s still got his eye on his own development and journey as an entrepreneur, but he has also reached a place in his career where he can help other individuals start their own business, and why not multiple businesses, like him. To show them, perhaps, that yes, entrepreneurship is a hard road, but that’s one of the things Allen loves best about it.

“Your level of success depends on you and how much work you put in. You can create your own schedule. You can decide what business you want to create; you have the ability to provide opportunities for people, The challenge is to stay current with the times.”

Wisdom and Youthful Energy Combined: Tax Attorney Lance R. Drury




Research done by The American Psychological Association indicates that the average person starts feeling old at the age of 47. This was the most cited age in a survey of 2,000 Americans over 40, with respondents also noting that they begin to worry about age-related bodily changes around the age of 50. Concerns about mental decline and memory loss are prevalent, with a significant percentage of participants expressing fears about their cognitive health deteriorating as they age. Interestingly, fewer people are concerned about losing their youthful looks compared to worries about mental sharpness and staying socially connected.

But at the young age of 70, Tax Attorney at Law Lance R. Drury embodies the belief that age is just a number — not a measure of one’s capabilities. With a career spanning several decades, the spunky lawyer continues to defy societal expectations, showcasing that one can maintain both wisdom and youthful energy well into their later years. Drury’s happy-go-lucky, quick-witted personality offers a refreshing perspective in a world where age often dictates one’s pursuits and achievements.

With over 35 years of legal experience, his practice specializes in tax planning, litigation of tax disputes, and negotiation of settlements with tax authorities.

We sat down with Drury to discuss his perspective on age and how it influences his dynamic approach to life and work.

All In Your Head

Drury’s response to the question of retirement was profound.

“People often suggest I should retire,” he shared. “But staying active keeps my mind sharp and my spirit youthful.”

His days are filled with interactions that span generations, which he believes keep his mind young and engaged.

“Age is just a sequence of numbers that has no bearing on what you can achieve. The only limits are the ones you set for yourself,” Drury emphasized.

Maintaining Purpose and Connection

Drury highlighted the importance of maintaining a sense of purpose. While retirement for some means relaxation and leisure, for Drury, it’s about continual engagement and growth.

“You don’t retire from life; you move towards new opportunities,” Drury pointed out. “It’s essential to keep forging connections and pursuing goals that keep you connected to the world around you.”

He actively engages with people daily, from colleagues to younger individuals, enriching his social life and broadening his perspectives. This engagement, he noted, is key to feeling connected and vibrant.

The Psychological and Social Benefits of Staying Active

Staying engaged in work and social activities has profound effects on mental health. Drury observed that his professional engagements keep his mind sharp and give him a sense of purpose every day. This routine, he suggested, can benefit everyone, regardless of age. The social interactions that come with staying active help prevent the loneliness and isolation often associated with aging.

“Staying active is crucial for keeping your mind sharp and your spirit engaged,” Drury noted.

A Rebellious Stance on Aging

Drury’s approach is rebellious. Especially in the field of law, defying societal expectations that dictate slowing down with age is unexpected. He finds liberation in continuing his work and enjoying life on his terms. This rebellious stance is about acknowledging the aging process while embracing it with vigor and a clear sense of purpose.

“Rejecting the typical narrative of aging doesn’t mean denying the process of growing older. It means embracing it with enthusiasm and a resolve to live fully every day,” Drury passionately shared. “I encourage others to live joyfully and defiantly, irrespective of age.”

Drury’s narrative is a powerful reminder that age should not limit our dreams or capabilities. Whether it’s continuing a career, engaging with diverse social groups, or simply finding new reasons to enjoy each day, his life exemplifies the power of living without age boundaries. Drury’s advice encourages us to look beyond societal expectations and craft a life filled with engagement, purpose, and connection, no matter how many years we have lived.

In a world that often equates aging with decline, Lance R. Drury stands out as a beacon of enduring vitality and purpose, inspiring all of us to rethink what it means to grow older!
