“If I were to quit now, I would miss my purpose for living and blessing others.” – Adrian Marcus 


Q: How do you lead a productive lifestyle?

FOCUS is key because I know what I want and where I want to be, I let nothing get in the way of my dreams. I work more than I sleep and play. I try to work 18hrs/day.

Q: Do you have a favorite productivity app or any life hacks?

I’ve got 3 I try to keep true to:

  1. I limit my social media time as much as possible.
  2. I put EVERYTHING on my calendar.
  3. If [something] doesn’t align with my daily,monthly,yearly or life goals, I remove it.

Q: How do you spend the first hour of your day?

I try my best to head to the gym by 4:45am every morning. There is no better way to start the day. It clears my mind and energizes me to attack my day.


Q: Why do you do, what you do?

My family drives me, I want to show them things they haven’t seen before. A few people have reached out to me and told me that what I do makes them want to do more and be better. That means the world to me. There is no way I can not strive to improve with people like that behind me.

Q:Did you ever think about quitting any of your ventures, when things got rough?

Quitting would often cross my mind constantly because despite what you see in the movies, being an entrepreneur is hard! There are bills, employees, taxes, and a thousand unforeseen things that have to be shouldered on a daily basis.

Q: So what kept you going?

I believe that God put me on this earth for a reason and this is only the beginning. If I were to quit now, I would miss my purpose for living and blessing others.

Some Fun

Q: What do you do when you’re not working?

Well before I graduated I was a Mississippi State football player so that’s all I did besides hanging out with friends. Now, in my free time I enjoy going to bars with my friends.

Q: What’s your dream travel destination?

There is no one destination for me. My goal is to visit the major city in every country in the world.
