Marcus Ginyard: I knew that there was gonna be a chapter of my life after basketball. And I think that I’ve done a great job over the last   several years of really trying to think about some of those things, what do I take from basketball that can help me be successful off the court? 

Dana Kadwell: Welcome to Hustle and Gather, a podcast about inspiring the everyday entrepreneur to take the leap. I’m Dana

Courtney Hopper: and I’m Courtney. 

Dana: And we are two sisters who have started multiple businesses together. And yes, it is as messy as you think. Because we know that starting a business, isn’t easy. 

Courtney: I mean, we’ve done it four times. And on this show, we talk about the ups and downs of the hustle and the reward at the end of the journey. 

Dana: And we love helping small businesses succeed, whether that is through our venue consulting, speaking, or team training, we love to motivate others to take that big leap. 

Courtney: You could just use our misadventures to normalize the crazy that is being an entrepreneur, because every entrepreneur makes mistakes, 

Dana: but we like to call those unsuccessful attempts around here.

Courtney: And we know it’s just part of the process. And today we’re learning from Marcus Ginyard. Marcus is a highly motivated, ambitious, charismatic professional, determined to build a lasting legacy of success service.
