Marcus Allen CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters Talks about Resilience and Leadership

This is sixth episode of the competitive advantage podcast. In this episode I speak with Marcus Allen, President/ CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters Independence Region.

Marcus shares his personal story of humble beginnings from living in the projects while being raised by his mother a single parent to leading one of the most prominent non-profit organizations in the Greater Philadelphia region.

One of the most inspiring things I learned during our conversation is out of adversity and athletics Marcus cultivated a relentless optimistic attitude which is at his core of being a great leader.

His perspective on resilience and leadership will inspire you to dare greatly and be extraordinary — no matter the challenge.

Listen to this inspirational episode and let me know your thoughts.
