There is more to Marcus Roberts-DeLoach than meets the eye. Though he’s only twenty-three years old, he’s established himself in many aspects of his life. A well-rounded and young entrepreneur, he has built successful businesses, started a non-profit, and authored successful books.
Marcus first ventured into business pretty early on. He started his first enterprise at the age of twenty. At that time, Roberts-DeLoach was also a full-time student and student-athlete. By the time he turned twenty-two, Robert had published his first book, Bigger Than You: What is Your Purpose? which aims to allow its readers to rediscover themselves and determine what their highest purpose in life is. The book helps people experience the transformation that leads to the greatness that Robert believes we all possess.
Marcus is also currently working on his second and third books. One is entitled Plan A: No Other Option, and it brings people through the process of building a vision of their dreams and giving them a roadmap to accomplishing what they set out to do with zeal. The next book in the pipeline is Be Here Now: Faith Over Fear, which Robert is currently working on.
The young entrepreneur is the proud owner of four companies. The leading corporation is Marcus’ holding company called LionHearted Revolution, Inc. Under the mother organization are LionHearted Publications, Marcus’ publishing company, and 1 Percenters Marketing Agency, which provides social media marketing services to various clients. Marcus also birthed a non-profit organization, Purpose 2 Prosper, an online community built for teenagers and adults, which seeks to help them find purpose and meaning to their lives as early as their youth. The charity organization has two branches: Leaders of Tomorrow Academy, which caters to youth ages 13 to 17 years of age, and My Life University, which is more suited to 18-year-olds and beyond.
At the core, Marcus Roberts-DeLoach believes that a realization of one’s real value, giftings, and skills is what helps people discover their purpose in life. He is of the worldview that our situations do not determine our final destination. His business and work are reflective of those beliefs and are committed to helping people come to terms with these life truths.
Marcus considers himself a serial encourager, always looking for means and ways to motivate people to tap into their true potential. “At a young age, I was always the friend who wanted to make you smile by any means necessary or uplift you if you were having a bad day.” shares Marcus. “I never realized that I had a gift of being able to empower others with the way I speak until I got older and began to get in touch with my purpose.”
Marcus separates himself from the rest in that he is confident yet humble, ascribing to the principle that all he has accomplished is made possible only through God. At a young age, he has pushed himself to accomplish and establish himself as a practitioner of his message. Marcus is always working to find ways to overcome, even amid great adversity. His goal is always to outwork yesterday’s version of himself and to become better at the things he is most passionate about.
