Meet Jarrett ‘Stacxx’ Dargan: The Founder of ‘AAGNG’, Accomplishing All Goals Never Guessing, The Company That Doesn’t Need A Plan B

Jarrett Dargan, better known as Stacxx, is unique in his passion in business, life, and work ethic. Motivated by the music he associates with his cultural upbringing and the friends that are important to him, he has been successful in three separate industries.

“I’ve always been surrounded around music, recording studios and attending various events around Philadelphia. I believe that daily influence encouraged me to try it for myself,” Stacxx says. 

He owns and operates multiple businesses, the first of which is ‘AAGNG’ (Accomplishing All Goals Never Guessing) which is a start up record label involving some of Stacxx’s closest and long term friends. In addition, he also runs ‘Above All Child Care’ which is a daycare center located in his hometown of Philadelphia, PA, and is planning to open two more schools in 2021 in the Montgomery County area nearby. 

AAGNG is a brand without a Plan B. They don’t need one, as everything on Plan A is thought-out and well planned. They operate incredibly organically, helping open doors for folks that need it. There are many people, aspiring musicians and businesspeople, who need better assistance, especially when it comes to promotions. 

With his business, Stacxx also works to set a better standard for contracts, an area in the music industry he sees as extremely lacking, and where he can help advocate for better treatment of musicians and talent.

“I still feel a lot of people are still in slave contracts. I do believe over the past few years as more artists are taking the independent route, it has gotten better. However, major labels and investors still have a heavy control factor which affects the success route of the talent,” Stacxx explains. 

Having been successful three times over, Stacxx understands the hardships that come whenever you start your own business. Above all else, Stacxx found that capital and overall funding are the trickiest spots, as well as promotion and advertising to get your name out there. He acknowledged that social media has made advertising more accessible, creating new ways to share important information. However, he also noted that social media can often become oversaturated with advertising, diminishing the effectiveness of promoting your company. 

“I am always thinking of ways to stand out from other businesses and looking for innovative ways to bring in new clientele,” Stacxx says. 

Stacxx believes that having a healthy and focused mindset allowed him to find the high level of success he has achieved in starting his own businesses, 3 times over.

“Having a strong mindset assists with better leadership skills which is much needed when running a business when others depend on your decision making,” Stacxx says. 

This strong mindset allows Stacxx to operate fearlessly in business and in life. To him, he says fear is meaningless. He does his best to live to the fullest, eliminating all possibilities and encounters of fear, truly believing that fear is another distraction that can deter one from their dreams. 

On the other hand, success is also incredibly powerful for him, but in a positive light. 

“Success means happiness. It means tackling every obstacle thrown my way and watching the smiles on my kids faces after being able to provide not only the necessities for them, but also rewarding them with memorable life experiences,” Stacxx says. 

His views of failure and leadership have allowed Stacxx to overcome some great challenges, namely his upbringing in the inner city of Philadelphia. Moving to the outskirts of the city allowed Stacxx to meet a plethora of different people from different cultures, exposing him to new ways of life and thinking. His love for meeting new people and understanding their cultures has allowed Stacxx to develop a wide and realistic perspective of the world, adding to his success in business. 

“At my live shows, audiences can expect to leave the show with a headache and their ears ringing because of how loud the speakers will be knockin’. In my past shows, I have had fans waving their hands, jumping up and down, screaming to the top of their lungs. I even bring them on stage,” Stacxx says.
