When it comes to dedication, passion, and hard work, DeShawn Marks exemplifies the crux of these traits. The position he is in now and all the businesses that he owns didn’t happen overnight. It took an extremely hard drive and the utmost sincerity to work towards building a standardized lifestyle that has made him a successful entrepreneur.

His journey as an entrepreneur was worth going through the ups and downs, the impediments, and intricacies that life put before him, and how splendidly he dealt with them, isn’t something that you get to see every day.
