You might know Marques Ogden as the football player who enjoyed a five-year NFL career, but he’s completely re-wired himself since leaving the league. Today, you’ll find Marques leaving his footprint all across the business world as an inspirational keynote speaker, podcast host, business coach and consultant, and best-selling author.
We were able to catch up with him recently to pick his brain on some of the areas where he’s really excelled and hopefully glean a little wisdom along the way. Once you hear his journey and all of the lows he had to experience before reaching the highs, you’ll have a better appreciation for all he’s accomplished.
Here are a few of the things you’ll learn on this show:
- His journey from a football player to successful businessman, which included a struggle with drugs and alcohol, a successful business taken down by his ego, and even a job as a custodian making $8.25/hour. [2:45]
- How self-absorption and putting too much energy into external factors leads to self-destruction. [10:09]
- Why he places such an emphasis on true collaboration and teamwork in his business and how he’s made diversity a priority. [15:39]
- What does being authentic mean to him and why is that so important in sales and marketing. [23:39]
