Marcus Peterson is a young man that resides from Inglewood, California. While growing up, some peers and his teachers told him that he'd probably never graduate middle, high school nor leave Los Angeles. Peterson continues to prove them wrong by growing up to becoming a world traveler and professional NFL player. He even received his MBA degree in global business finance, in England.
Despite all the limitations that were placed on him in life, Peterson prospers as a successful international model, NFL football player, and entrepreneur. He believes in defying limitations and going beyond the limit to achieving your dreams. Once he stopped listening to the naysayers in his life, he realized that anything was possible through hard work and faith.
Peterson is only in his mid-20s, and he's accomplished so much already. While attending undergrad in both Kansas and Pennsylvania , Peterson worked for Abercrombie and Fitch. Where it was the first modeling job he had ever gotten. He then years later signed a contract with LA Models which catapulted his popularity further. Peterson was also an aspiring football player who competed for the NFL.
In 2016, he failed to get invited or drafted into the NFL. But this would only be a temporary setback. It took two years of praying to God and hustling like crazy for Peterson to finally establish his brand. He took his brand from local Los Angeles to leveling up to the worldwide brand level. After he signed a contract with the world- renowned LA Models modeling agency, Peterson found himself doing walks in Paris, London, New York, and Los Angeles.
Within those two short years, Peterson did more than most people do in a lifetime. He signed his first NFL contract summer of 2018 with the Los Angeles Chargers, finished his MBA degree in England after one year, attended the Cannes Film Festival, participated in the Grand Prix in Monaco, and developed his own apparel brand called "MP" Motivational Apparel to motivate people globally.
Peterson has even been a guest speaker at several universities throughout the world and has established connections with various professional athletes and top entrepreneurs like Jared Goff, Gary Vaynerchuk and David Meltzer.
Peterson has surely created a prestigious lifestyle for himself. No one could have predicted how successful he would start becoming. Now everyone has got their eyes on Peterson. However, Peterson is more interested in helping other people now by getting involved in humanitarian work. His passion project has started by helping feed, cloth, and educate the homeless throughout Spain, Los Angeles, Miami, United Kingdom , France, and the Middle East.
Peterson was able to escalate the popularity of his brand by using social media platforms. By partnering with various individuals, companies, and brands on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Instagram, he was able to monetize his brand, quite well.
The power of paying your dues is the belief which drives Peterson's hustle. By staying the course and knowing his purpose. Peterson achieved so much in such a short timeframe. Next, making it on the Forbes 30 under 30 list is certainly a top goal for his life. Who knows what else he'll achieve in the next 30 years of his life?
