Brother Luck

Celebrity Chef, Mental Health Advocate, Author of No Lucks Given

In this week’s Team Never Quit Podcast, Marcus brings Chef Brother Luck (his real name) to the table. Working in professional kitchens since the age of 14, and learning the rewards of hard work, passion, and determination, Brother Luck has earned celebrity status. However, his focus isn’t on fame as much as it is on mentoring the next generation. He sees it as his responsibility – his give back.

In this episode you will hear:
  • Perseverance is everything.
  • I was a student of the streets. I had no parental supervision to tell me no.
  • I surrounded myself with drug dealers, gang bangers, and pimps because I idolized what they had: Money, Power, and Respect.
  • Great leaders are good with people, they’re good with their product, and they’re good with money
  • The word Chef means “Chief” and I’ve taken that to heart as a leader.
  • I’m still a corner kid, I just have a corner office.
  • Don’t lead through fear.
  • I discovered the world through food.
  • My success is based on the success of other people.
  • No one can validate you but you.
  • I broke mentally which led to a suicide attempt because I didn’t believe in myself.
  • We create a perception wall. Here’s the image I want you to see of me.
  • I’m grateful to be an American.
  • Your story isn’t meant for you. It’s meant to be heard by somebody else.
  • What are you doing on a daily basis to take care of your mental state? Pressure is either gonna make a diamond or burst your pipe.
  • We’re blessed to live in this country and have the rights and freedoms that we have.
  • I’m always gonna be genuine and I’m always gonna be present.
  • Don’t give up. You get one shot at this life.
  • You can persevere beyond your situation.
