Status Labs is becoming an increasingly important part of the digital landscape and you might not even be aware that they exist. Status Labs is what we call an online reputation management firm where their focus is to help companies craft a public image while maintaining said image in the face of potential crisis. Darius Fisher, the President and CEO of Status Labs, is the brains behind the operation and one of the major reasons that the company is experiencing such explosive an successful growth.
Darius Fisher sat down with Reiva Lesonski, CEO of GrowBiz Media, in order to talk about what makes him tick and why his company has found so much success. If you want to know one thing about Fisher, thanks to this interview, you need to know that he is hyper focused and constantly prepared. Fisher says that his favorite quote is, “Chance favors the prepared mind” and that his focus in business is to find the “quickest line to the money”. Fisher’s focus on successful business building has become something to be admired as the company continues to expand outward.
There was a point in time where Status Labs didn’t have an assured future. In 2011 Status Labs was under public scrutiny thanks to the behavior of a former company president. Fisher was tasked with stepping in and taking charge. From 2012 to today we have seen Status Labs grow and expand by over 1,000% — getting named to the Inc. 500 Fastest Growing Companies list in the process. What this says is that both Fisher and the digital PR world are expanding at the same time, proving that there is something here to pick up on.
As an entrepreneur Fisher says that he chased the profession for the most common reasons: to become his own boss and to have freedom to travel. It wasn’t until he quit his copywriting job to focus on business that he really began to feel success. Now Fisher is a stalwart piece of the digital PR puzzle and we expect to see his hands all over the expansion of Status Labs into the future.
