While it’s impossible to turn off your reactions to what others think of you, you don’t have to hold up your accomplishments to anyone else’s, and you can always take people’s opinions with a grain of salt. That way, no matter what other people are thinking or doing, your self-worth comes from within.”

He has grown his personal brand through the cultivation of his skills and expertise, allowing him to succeed in the TV/film industry and more.
“If you do a great job with one artist, it is likely they will tell their friends, family, and even colleagues when asked. People will typically choose a brand/person that has been recommended by someone they trust, over a brand/person without that personal connection,” he shared.
Marcus hopes to inspire individuals with his massive success. Through his passion, hard work and commitment to his craft, he hopes to motivate other individuals to pursue success. In the near future, he envisions himself getting more awards and inspiring the world through business and music.
