Believing Bigger and Thriving Through Disruption with Marshawn Evans Daniels
On today’s show, I have with me Marshawn Evans Daniels. She’s a former Miss America finalist, a Georgetown graduated attorney, high-powered entrepreneur, TV commentator, and was also a contestant on “The Apprentice”.
Marshawn is the author of the book, “Believe Bigger: Discover the Path to Your Life Purpose”.
Simply speaking, she does a lot of amazing, amazing, things.
“If you allow yourself to settle for less, nobody is obligated to stop you.” – Marshawn Evans Daniels
One of the themes that she writes about in her book and we discuss in this show is disruption.
If you REALLY want your life to change, what you’re asking for is disruption … and disruption is very often not a pretty or a comfortable thing. It tears down your current vision of your future and replaces it with something you cannot even imagine.
For Marshawn, the unasked for disruption that blew her own internal story to smithereens came in the form of discovering her fiance had been unfaithful to her 6 days before her wedding and directly AFTER she had dismantled a multi-million dollar talent management company she had built from the ground up.
That disruption put Marshawn on the path of inspiring and empowering millions of people and finding THE person she was destined to spend the rest of her life with.
We talk about how she persevered and much, much more in our wide-ranging conversation on life.
