Marques Ogden Talks Fatherhood, His New Book And How He Overcame Challenges In His Life

Marques Ogden sat down with me to chat about his new book, The Success Cycle, fatherhood and his time in the NFL. Marques talks with me about how he looks to teach his kids accountability and the other values he looks to instill in them as they grow up. He also shares what he learned about being a parent from his dad. 

We then talk about his time in the NFL and what he misses the most about his playing days. We finish the interview with Fatherhood Quick Five.

But even in the face of crushing defeat, he identified and put into action the traits required to rise from the ashes and find success again. Now this inspiring, candidly written, and time-tested method of success is available to you!
