Have you ever felt like . . .

There is more.

More that you are supposed to be doing.

More that you are designed to manifest in your life.

More people that you are supposed to reach…right now.

If you feel that way, then you’re right.  You see, I believe that you are created on purpose, with purpose, for purpose. As a result, your presence here on earth is an indication of a very significant, yet specific assignment . . . one designed just for you and you alone.


There is a message that only you have. No one else has your unique ability.  Your unique experience, talent, perspective, and approach to impacting their lives of others.  (I’m talking to you.)  As a result, there is an audience and massive community of individuals waiting (and needing) to hear the message that you have in your heart.


Whether you are a seasoned business owner, an aspiring entrepreneur, or just someone who is ready to stop sitting on your dreams…you’re in the right place!  You have a voice.  A very important one.  It is time that you learned how to give your voice the vision and victory plan it needs to thrive.


Too many think that they need to build an audience before they decide to truly own their voice.  I disagree.  That’s NOT how it works.  The key is to step forward first.  To give your voice permission to reverberate. It is only then that your audience can appear. For now, extend an invitation for them to find you and join you.


  • You knew how to clearly articulate your passion and purpose.
  • You had a compelling brand message that made you irresistible in the marketplace.
  • You knew exactly where your target audience is located.
  • Your target audience knew exactly where to find you.
  • You had a proven profitability plan for your passion – so that you can truly live your dream (not just dream about your life).
  • You were no longer the best kept secret in your industry or space.
  • Opportunities were coming your way in droves (and you could hand-pick the ones you wanted).


  • You had the support of a caring mentor who was dedicated to walk with you step-by-step in building your dream, expanding your brand, launching your influence.



Now, you’re probably thinking, “sure, Marshawn, that sounds great, but is that really possible for me and in my life?” You know what, I asked myself the same thing 6 years ago.  As a new attorney, fresh out of law school, I was sitting in my office on the 21st floor of one of the most prestigious law firms in the country.  I had an amazing view from window, yet I still could not see myself living this life.


I was paid very well, but I wasn’t doing what I loved.  I would get up at the crack of dawn, work into the evening, and then go to bed only to do it all over again.  There had to be more.  And, I was right.  There was more in store for me.  I learned a lot at that law firm and I will always be grateful for the privilege of that first “real” job.  However, I am more grateful for what I learned when I made the leap into my destiny.

The moment I made up my mind that I was going to live a full life, one marked by me positioning myself to pour into the lives of others – things started to happen.


It was not easy.  I decided to start a sports agency and days after I resigned from my law firm (I remember because my office supplies and “stuff” were still in the back of my car), I got word that my one BIG client lost all of their funding.  By funding, I mean they lost a $50 Million Dollar (yes, I said million) credit line, which meant that they had to cancel my contract as well.


I was terrified…but I could not stay in fear for long.  It was the best thing that happened to me.  It forced me to get serious about my dream and making it happen no matter what.  I didn’t have a plan B, so I was solely committed to plan A.


Here is what happened…


Within a week, after I made up mind that I was going to build my brand and launch my dream, I signed my first paying NFL client.  At the time, he was the highest paid defensive end in the NFL. From there, I went on to build one of the fastest growing woman-owned sports management and branding agencies in the country.

Not only was I getting endorsement deals for my clients, and national media exposure in outlets like Sports Illustrated and Fox Sports, I started doing commentary on ESPN.  But, it grew much bigger than sports.  I started doing regular commentary for other networks like CNN, Fox News, Fox Business Channel, and a variety of morning shows in cities across the country.


Now, I write as a paid contributor for several magazines like ESSENCE, PINK, UPSCALE, and Black Enterprise to name a few.

Just one year after I left my law firm job, I was able to snag a big time literary agent and within months released my best-selling book, SKIRTS in the Boardroom. It was published by the largest business book publisher in the world (John Wiley & Sons).  Hey, I was blown (and humbled) away by this.  I was barely 27 years old.  It was the first time Wiley had ever published a business book with an African-American female under the age of 30.  So, here I am, a first time author, with a life-long dream to write a book, and not only did it get published…it ended up being named “Best Book of the Year” by EEW Magazine, and it landed #1 on Amazon.com in the Women & Business category multiple times.  (Oh, and I received a nice cash advance, too!)


From there, I’ve toured all around the world promoting my book, speaking at corporations, and presenting at conferences around the globe. I’ve been able to speak in Africa (three times in the last two years), Mexico, Ireland and Austria. I no longer run my sports agency because I decided to focus solely on helping people launch their lives.  That is an even bigger dream that I’ve had.  Because I have been blessed with the resources and tools to build a platform, those dreams become a bigger and bigger reality every single day.


I love being an international speaker, TV personality, and an author.  I love having a thriving corporate consulting practice where I get to work (every day) with companies like HP, Delta Air Lines, Office Depot, Home Depot, Ernst & Young, Rolls Royce Motor Cars, Nike, Boeing, Tiffany & Company, and Gatorade (just to name a FEW).  Each of these companies hired me to help them elevate their brand and influence to another dimension.


Now…it’s YOUR turn.


What I love most is being a mind-shifter.  A motivator.  A mover.  And, a mentor.  I recognize that none of these things just happen.  I made a lot of mistakes, wasted a lot of time, and trusted many of the wrong people.  But because of all of that, I know exactly what it takes to build a dynamic, multi-faceted platform….one that is full of purpose, passion and profit.

If you’re not currently where YOU want to be, please know that I’ve been where you are.


It can be lonely, discouraging and frustrating, but it does NOT have to be that way.  First you have to make up your mind (just like I did).  Decide today that your dreams are valuable and worth living to the fullest….most importantly that it is time that you do something about it!
