Quote from Marcus:
“I have learned that you can be bold and be yourself. Boldness for me has come from not walking the scripted path. My approach happens to be deeply rooted in my sense of logic. I use my observations of the world to determine what factors are better suited to capture my boldness and then I take the fork out of the road to pick a direction. Sometimes I am lead to gold and other times it’s strongly suggested that I try again.”
