Pro Media Mag : First of all please introduce yourself to our readers?
Marcus : Well I am Marcus The Motivator, author of the upcoming book “The Pinnacle of Motivation” and I have spent the past few years touring the world, all over Europe, South America, North America, the UK and Australia. I’ve honestly lost count of how many cities I’ve been to. Whether it be exploring the Galápagos Islands, driving a Tuk Tuk in India or visiting the London Olympics, I’ve been very fortunate to experience a lot of amazing adventures and touch so many lives, I am also currently being followed by a documentary crew for the launch of my book.

Pro Media Mag : Who or what inspired you to become a Motivator?
Marcus : Life. For a while I wasn’t sure what to do, I graduated university, went to work and quickly realised that wasn’t for me, I wanted to do something different, I wanted to explore and I wanted to try new things. Then I fell into motivating and found it really clicked with me, long story short my friend was experiencing tough times and I helped him overcome that and as I was doing that it made me feel really good and he suggested it should be something I consider and from there I started, it took a while to get comfortable and find my rhythm in talking but I found I did have a natural ability with it and when it started to click it all came together in a way I have never experienced before.

Pro Media Mag : You are the author of “The Pinnacle of Motivation” tell us more about the book and its contents.
Marcus : This book is everything I know about motivation. I wanted to put together a book that would touch people and put motivation into their lives. A book that would leave the reader a better person after they read it. I just really want to touch as many people as I can. Within the book there are chapters dedicated to different stages of life, whether it be that you need motivation at work or in personal relationships, you might be at a cross roads, there are various different chapters which are great to refer back to at a later stage that can help you with your current situation. The book works reading from start to finish but I also wanted it to be able to be referenced easily when the reader needs it.

Pro Media Mag : If anyone wants to buy your Book, where will it be available?
Marcus : It will be available at my website www.marcusthemotivator.com, Amazon, we are working on some of the major book stores at the moment as well, but the best place is one of my live events where there is always an opportunity to win one for free.

Pro Media Mag : Have you finalized your plans of book promotional tour?
Marcus : Stage 1 yes we have. I wanted to do something big and giveback to the people, so April 28th at SM North EDSA Skydome in Manila Philippines I am doing a completely free event for the initial launch with plenty of prizes and books to be given away as well. Stage 2 will involve release of the documentary and live events in many different countries which will involve screening of the documentary along with a talk and other aspects.

Pro Media Mag : You are able to motivate people around the world through motivational seminars. Is it your natural ability or you have developed it over the course of time?
Marcus : I think its a mixture of both, I think this is my calling, this is who I am and its a part of me, but at the same time when I started I absolutely sucked at it haha I could barely get a sentence out without second guessing myself or stumbling over my words, so it is something I have worked on and I am always working to improve. I tried many things in life that didn’t suit me, but when I am on that stage I love the power of touching people’s lives, the power of helping, the power of making there life better, there truly is no better feeling. I also love doing that one on one but unfortunately there I can’t reach the same amount of people with a 1 on 1 session as I can with an event full of people.

Pro Media Mag : What is your favorite part about being a motivator?
Marcus : By far it is the feeling of helping someone improve their life, whether it be lessening their pain, inspiring them or even as simple as getting them to smile.

Pro Media Mag : Do you have some future goals you want to achieve?
Marcus : I want to do large scale events in developing countries, I want to help those who need it the most. I want to have events in the largest stadiums in developing countries, I am talking sports stadiums that hold 50,000+ but do it for free.

Pro Media Mag : You have travalled around the world. What’s the best tour so far?
Marcus : I am a big golf fan so attending the open at St Andrews in Scotland, the home of golf and being able to try on a green jacket.

Pro Media Mag : What’s the best way to follow you for updates?
Marcus : The best way to follow me is on my Facebook account www.facebook.com/marcusthemotivator and if you are going through tough times please feel welcome to reach out and we will see how I can help.
