We had the good fortune of connecting with Dhardra Blake and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Dhardra, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
To create a niche in the Luxury yachting industry that did not exist.. Great Yachts & Trustworthy crew providing a DAY (or longer now actually! ) out on the Water enjoying all that is to be experienced.. without the hassle of Ownership~
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I like to say that one job has primarily led to the next in some regards.. through various networking etc. It has been a fun ride in a plethora of different industries.. from working for Mark Messier, to selling Beer, to coordinating events for ESPN, to working in Politics & then finding my way to the Yachting industry, I have definitely met some amazing people along the way & furthermore gained valuable insight into a diverse set of industries! I’ve always been a positive person as well as seeing/capitalizing on opportunities as they arise.. I would not say all has come “easy” but has flowed quite nicely, creating opportunities that fit me & my personality has been fulfilling! A few lessons learned are always try & do the right thing.. We only live once so make it count! 😉 I’d like to share that one can do anything they put their mind to.. Just take the leap & go for it if you might be hesitating.. I did when I created LuxuryDayCharters.com, which will CELEBRATE 10 YEARS in 2021! Whoo Hoo!
