As we go through life, we will encounter many peaks and valleys. At times it can be easy to give up on a goal, or a dream you have, but you must persevere to achieve greatness. We invite Marques Ogden to today’s show and he will talk about the importance of being resilient and finding a purpose.

About Marques Ogden:

Before Marques was a speaker, he was in the NFL for 5 years. He played for 5 years as an offensive lineman with the Titans, Bills, Ravens and Jaguars. He went on to launch a construction business that ultimately failed. In order to provide for his family, Marques took a job as a janitor. He knew that he couldn’t stay complacent in this position forever, so he started pursuing public speaking. Fast forward to now, Marques is an executive coach, keynote speaker, and corporate trainer.
