Strive to thrive - not just survive!

Marques Ogden grew up in a single parent home with his father & older brother, Jonathan (NFL Hall of Famer) in Washington D.C. After graduating from Howard University, Ogden was drafted in to the NFL. Throughout his career he played for the Jaguars, Ravens, Titans and Bills. After football, Marques experienced the ups & downs of business, life and leadership. Personal and professional triumph over the wrath of hard times has made Ogden the man he is today.

“If someone is going to coach you or mentor you or work with you, you would hope that person has been through some type of adversity because if they haven’t and then you go through adversity, how are you going to ask them for help?”
