He tells of how glass lids of low expectation and achievement were lifted off his life and how, through positive encouragement, intuitive goal setting as well as having the courage to break out of comfort zones, led him to a life of excitement, adventure and purpose.

Marcus motivates and inspires people to hit higher levels of performance and they leave his presentations with a fresh perspective on life.
