An Interview with Marcus Patrick

Barbara's Flower Shop

By Taroue Brooks

What inspired you to become an entrepreneur?
Honestly I’ve always found it hard to fit in to the cookie cutter ideas that culture lays out for us so I pursuit what feels true to me and it always ends up generating attraction and business as a result.  I never truly looked at it from the Entrepreneur word. 

How did you begin your acting career?
I saw Bruce Lee movies as a kid and wanted to some day make action films like that.  After I became the British champion in Tae Keon Do and defeated a world champ in Kung Fu, I wanted to get on to the screen and make movies like Jean Claud Van Damm was doing.   One day I still feel I’ll make an action hero movie and people will enjoy it. 

What has been the most difficult thing you had to overcome?
Truthfully I’ve been through so many life or death situations that I’m almost like a wild animal.  Its hard to pin point one difficulty.  The biggest internal battle is wrestling with the definition of God on a daily basis,  the man made religions and scriptures verses the true reality we deal with daily. 

Tell us about your book.
My book is a collection of the best scriptures, philosophy and scientific reports that support one another, with an inspirational theme towards living longer and stronger. 

What do you want people to experience when reading your book?
I want people to feel uplifted, supported and informed by years of research and experiences condensed into a good read.  I also put some humorous and horrifying experiences in the book for sheer entertainment.  We know I work in the wild club world and spent time in the Hollywood scene. 

How is your experience in fatherhood been for you?
Fatherhood is a daily challenge that is both beautiful and character testing.  More is required of my soul every day to be of support to my 3 boys and wife.  It’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever been a part of and yet some days it’s so exhausting I think I’m going to drop dead.   Somehow I keep strengthening and I feel that is the blessing that a father is given. 

What advice do you have for someone who seeks to be an entrepreneur?
Follow your true dream and passion.  It may seem far off to begin with but it will get you out of bed each day with a plan of action and fuel you all the way through improving yourself daily. 

Where would you like to see your career in the next five years?
I’d enjoy motivation speaking, making a few films, writing another book and investing wisely.   Given the current coronavirus pandemic, we must simply be grateful to get though each month at this stage of the game.  Life on earth is drastically being redefined.
