We’ve always been deeply impressed with young people who followed their heart and their passions, in the face of all adversity, and managed to turn them into a lucrative career. Such is the case of entrepreneur and business-owner Justin J. Allen.
Over the past few years, Allen has been one of the most exciting figures on the entrepreneurial scene, and we’ve loved watching him grow, and develop his business… es. Businesses. Because that’s right, Allen isn’t the successful leader of one enterprise, but several. And each time, he’s gone ahead into his new venture with gusto and self-confidence and has managed to turn it into a roaring success.
His first business, which he started back in 2013, dealt in executive security service, and rapidly turned into a multi-million-dollar enterprise along with his partners. And although that continues to be a lucrative and successful business to this day, Allen has also ventured towards different, and exciting new horizons in recent years.
A big sports fan ever since he was a small boy, Allen always dreamed of having his very own sports agency. And watching ESS (Executive Security Services) take flight and develop, that dream became more of a real, tangible possibility. Having encountered roaring success with his first business, Allen also took a shot at the sporting industry with DA Method.
What we love about DA Method (the mother company of DA Method Apparel and DA Method Agency) is that it most closely reflects Allen’s own approach to life and business. According to the entrepreneur, DA Method is about honor and integrity, and following your dreams and desires relentlessly, until you can cement them into a reality. This, as we’ve already seen, is what Allen managed to do with his security service business, as well as his sporting ventures, and is also what he encourages young athletes and entrepreneurs to try and apply in their careers, also.
“Honor, pride, respect, and loyalty,” are Allen’s guiding values, ones that he applies to each and every one of his incredibly successful businesses. These are also the characteristics he projects out into the business world, which has also made him a favorite mentor figure for young entrepreneurs, particularly young Black men, who are looking to build a brand for themselves.
Allen has managed to act not just as a success figure, but also as an inspiration, as hundreds of young entrepreneurs have watched every business idea Allen started turn to gold.
Most recently, Allen focused his attention on an exclusive, high-end lounge idea, the Premier Lounge, which he opened this year in the Washington, DC area. He is also hard at work, applying the finishing touches to his Premier Cutz barbershop, which will open just above the lounge itself, offering a fabulous duality to the entire business. Designed to host and highlight creators and artists in the DC area, Premier Lounge promises to be the latest in a long stream of successful business ventures for Justin J. Allen, ones that will cement his position in entrepreneurial history.
