However, Mr. McFarland reached his greatest height of success with the creation of Magnises, a social networking and business discount app. The business is exclusively geared to millennials who are looking to broaden their business horizons by offering members only perks like, marked discounts on restaurants, bars and upscale clubs.
In addition, Magnises members can also reserve exclusive, VIP access to a wide array of social events like concerts, holiday specials, galas and vacation getaways as well as the opportunity to rub shoulders with the likes of A-listers like Ja Rule and Rick Ross.
