“I learned to get over what other people think, but it took me a while to overcome this challenge,” said Marcus “Churchboi” Askew. “When your sense of pleasure and satisfaction are derived from comparing yourself to others, you are no longer the master of your own destiny. While it’s impossible to turn off your reactions to what others think of you, you don’t have to hold up your accomplishments to anyone else’s, and you can always take people’s opinions with a grain of salt. That way, no matter what other people are thinking or doing, your self-worth comes from within.”

By cultivating both his expertise and skills, he has developed his own personal brand, which has allowed him to succeed in both the film and television industries.
“If you do a great job with one artist, it is likely they will tell their friends, family, and even colleagues when asked. People will typically choose a brand/person that has been recommended by someone they trust, over a brand/person without that personal connection,” he shared.
