Getting Authentic with Marques Ogden

In this episode, Julie has her first special guest on The People Priority Podcast: Marques Ogden. Marques is the host of a popular podcast called Get Authentic. The heart of the podcast is to allow people to be authentic as they share their stories and wisdom. Marques came up with the title Get Authentic while going through a very life-changing situation. He realized that when he was being authentic with people, they were more open to sharing their stories with him. Marques believes that by creating an environment of authenticity, people can feel more connected to one another and can learn from each other. Marques is an inspirational keynote speaker, executive coach, bestselling author, and marketing leader. He was drafted into the NFL in 2003 but left after five years to pursue a career in construction and contracting. He founded his own construction company, Kaden Premier Enterprises, which went bankrupt in 2010. With only $400 to his name, Markus got a job as a custodian and worked hard to turn his life around. He took full accountability for his mistakes and stopped blaming others. This was the start of a new framework for him, and he now encourages others to create something great out of opportunity. He identified his strengths and built a value framework for others, eventually leading to his first paid speaking job in April 2016. Since then, he has been working with 51 Fortune 500 companies and provides coaching, consulting, and a podcast to support and help others. It was highlighted that when starting a business, if one starts with the value system of helping others and not worrying about money, great things will come. His story is a great example of how dedication to service can lead to success.
