I'm Marcus Sanders. I'm a husband, a father, an educator, a pastor, and a mentor, born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska.
Growing up, I was told in school that I'd never amount to anything - that all I'd ever become was a worker at a fast food restaurant. Hearing that as a kid can really break you, but I refused to let that message discourage me.
They said I would never graduate from high school, but I did. They said I would never get my degree, but I did. They said I would never work anywhere other than a fast food restaurant. Today, I’m a full-time motivational speaker, mentor, and military chaplain.
You don’t have to be defined by what others say you can and cannot do. With hard work, focus, and discipline, you can live a life that makes a difference in our world..
Let’s make our world a better place. Be positive, stay humble, and work hard.
