In today’s atmosphere, bad news and harmful social content often reign supreme. Studies on digital media show that content with a pessimistic tone is more likely to get attention than those with a positive one. But what the world truly needs, most notably in these trying times, are people who look to spread positivity, encouragement, and motivation. What the world needs are more people like Marcus Roberts-DeLoach.
At only twenty-three years old, Marcus is making a positive impact on a multitude of people’s lives. He’s a serial encourager with a knack for business and life. The motivational speaker, author, consultant, and entrepreneur admits that he is addicted to helping people get past their painful tests and into a path of purpose and success. “At a young age, I was always the friend who wanted to make you smile by any means necessary or uplift you if you were having a bad day.” Marcus shares. “I never realized that I had a gift of being able to empower others with the way I speak until I got older and began to get in touch with my purpose.”
Marcus has established himself as a success in many critical areas of his life. He’s a well-rounded entrepreneur who has built successful ventures, an up-and-coming non-profit initiative, and a slate of self-published titles.
Marcus owns four entities. The first corporation is his portfolio’s holding company, LionHearted Revolution, Inc. Under the umbrella are two branches. The first branch is LionHearted Publications, which manages all of Marcus’ published and upcoming books. The second branch is a social media marketing consultancy called 1 Percenters Marketing Agency.
On top of Marcus’ for-profit ventures, he’s also co-founded Purpose 2 Prosper, a non-profit online community for teenagers and adults. The goal of the organization is to build a support group that helps today’s youth discover their purpose and the meaning of their lives as early as possible. There are two programs under the non-profit: Leaders of Tomorrow Academy, a community for students 13 to 17 years of age, and My Life University, a group for 18-year-olds plus.
The first time Marcus ventured into business, he was only twenty years old. At that time, he was also a full-time student and a college athlete. At twenty-two years old, Marcus published his first book, Bigger Than You: What is Your Purpose? The book’s objective is to help readers to discover their true potential, which will ultimately lead to a vision of our life’s purpose.
Today, Marcus is setting himself up to launch two more books. His sophomore work is called Plan A: No Other Option, which gives people a blueprint on how to build a vision for their lives and to help them achieve their dreams and ambitions. The third book, which is currently in the works, is entitled Be Here Now: Faith Over Fear.
In all of his successes, the young enthusiast is humble amid his confidence. He believes that all he has accomplished is made possible only through the help of God. He is always finding ways to push himself to his limits and build strategies to grow his ventures and missional work.
