For many kids, becoming a professional athlete is the dream. For Marcus Peterson, it became a reality. Marcus’s journey to the NFL was unconventional. He didn’t receive any D1 offers and he wasn’t drafted. Through his work ethic and the power of networking, he was able to get in front of scouts and land on a spot on a roster. In addition to catching passes, Marcus is also an avid businessman. He’s earned his MBA and founded “MP” Motivational Apparel. In this episode we dive into his story of husting his way into the NFL as well as what his company has been up to.

The Travel Wins
My guest on today’s The Travel Wins podcast is Marcus Peterson. Marcus is an NFL wide receiver, model and entrepreneur. His upbringing in Inglewood California at a very small school made him realize his need to work hard and appreciate everything that happens to him is for a reason. He went on to play football in college at Seton Hill and then traveled to England where he received his MBA. While living overseas he realized how big the world is and that it doesn’t revolve around the US. We also discuss his apparel business, MP Motivational Brand, and what his future holds for him after his football career is done. I love the fact that he is using motivational phrases for his apparel. Anyone that is sharing positive vibes to the world needs to be recognized. What The "MP" Brand Represents "MP" Motivational Brand Apparel, represents for anyone who has ever been over looked, told they couldn’t achieve something, they aren't good enough, or underestimated. Understanding that there are and will be times in our lives where we will be overlooked and counted out but we can never lose faith or site of our goals. No matter what industry we are in, we all have a story of challenges we endure to achieving success. This notion provides the opportunity to wear our struggles through apparel to ignite our dreams in overcoming the "No’s" in life to becoming living proof of YES! “MP” apparel is a great concept to remind others and ourselves that when we recognize our “Why” & "Purpose" in life having control of the ending result and can NEVER give up on our dreams. Understanding, that whatever happens, a human being does not have the last word for on our destiny, God does.
