Interviewed By Jason Kraus and Yev Ioffe.

About the Event:
A little background about Marques: in 2003, he was drafted into the NFL as an offensive lineman. After 5 years of playing in the league, he decided to retire and pursue a career in construction and contracting. At the age of 27, Marques founded a construction company, Kayden Premier Enterprises. The company had fast growth and in 2010 Marques won The African American Subcontractor of the Year Award in the state of Maryland. Yet, in the end, his business went bankrupt, losing almost 2 million dollars on one project in a matter of 90 days.

During his darkest hours, Marques pulled himself together, got a part-time job as a custodian and with hard work and determination became an inspirational keynote speaker, executive coach, best-selling author, and marketing leader, helping to build the success of others.
