About this title
Marquis' road to success has been to say the least nothing short of an action-packed film. His determination and
relentless effort to be the change in which he wishes to see in the world has become
contagious to everyone that has come in contact with him. A young man who
in such a short span of life has faced down some of lifes most tragic experiences.
Homelessness, abandonment, depression, foster-care along with being accused,
charged and convicted of a crime connecting to a death that he didn't commit,
landing him in the State Prison system. Now, all across the state of Illinois he
mentors, coaches and consults with schools directly for over 120 kids while
expanding his public and motivational speaking career en route to his debut
memoir “Thinking Out Loud To Myself” which has been in the making for quite
some time of his life now. His memoir is a collection of dialogs that he has shred
with himself, others, his philosophy and purpose for living as well as failures and
successes. Packed with so much humbling truth and comedy all at once you are sure
to make his story, your story! When Marquis walks into a room people begin to
believe again, not only in themselves but, a common goal of all, which is to live life
to its fullest moment.
He believes that by using this energy, our resources and time that we can collectively
as a people bring about longstanding change all around the world starting with
each rural , city and suburban community. Marquis service speaks for itself in any
community that he has been in and he is grateful to be a part of the efforts of so
many that have come before him seeking change of this magnitude. A quote from
Frederick Douglass would best suite his calling “If there is no struggle there is no
progress. Those who profess to favor , freedom and yet, depreciate agitation, are
men who want crops without plowing up the ground. They want rain without
thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many
waters. This struggle may be a moral one; or it may be a physical one; or it may be
both moral and physical; but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without
demand. It never did and it never will”.
Marquis is a Motivational speaker, youth behavior consultant for 3 school districts in the Central Illinois Area as well as a community activist. He runs a youth mentoring program No Fear No Pressure and a re-entry program for felons and parolees seeking education and employment.
