Interview with Marques Spraggs (@marquesspraggs
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
I am an entrepreneur/content creator. The biggest thing that led me to this career is my ability to want to make people laugh and have something to look forward to. Someone they can possibly look up to and serve as an inspiration to others.
Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this?
The first time I was thing about starting a channel and how supportive my parents were as I had a lot of anxiety a out how they would feel once I put myself on the internet.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them thrive and not “burn out”?
Make content about whatever you’re passionate about as it is truly a grind and it’s hard to stick it out when the money isn’t coning in at first..
None of us can succeed without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
JP Movaghar is one of the people I give credit to the most as they were willing to be a mentor for my beginning struggles and successes and continues to this day. He was one of the first people that helped to tackle business and personal growth issues with our zoom meetings.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
Yes. Donating to charity and fundraiser events to bring awareness to issues.
Do you have a favourite “written Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
“Consistency is key.” I was a serial procrastinator when it came to most areas of life and knew that if I wanted to be successful and live the life I wanted go live, then I would have to go and work hard. So for the next 6 months, I put my head down and worked on scripts and other pieces of content until I got where I am today.
