Malcolm “Mr. Just 2 Nice” Marable talks to your host Erik Smith about thinking about your goals long-term.
- The more you do in life, the more you figure out what you like, until you find your purpose.
- He used his popularity as a college athlete and money he got from financial aid to fund the first version of his business.
- Because his marketing options were limited as an NCAA athlete, he had to rely on word-of-mouth to grow his business.
- When he was moved from running back to corner on his college football team, he had to learn how to approach that with a positive attitude and make the decision to see his goal of graduating through.
- He has always managed to think about how a choice will affect his life in a few hours, a few days, a few weeks, months, years, which has given him a long view and great perspective on how to achieve his goals.
- He noticed that personal trainers he was seeing work didn‘t have the knowledge to back their work up, so he decided to read a lot about teaching and fitness to become a personal trainer himself with the goal of teaching people to use their bodies healthily.
- He grew up skinny and has always had a fast metabolism, but you still have to pay attention to what you eat.
- Investing is useful to help build generational wealth.
- Whatever is going on in your life, it is temporary.
3 KEY POINTS:

Learning to invest to build wealth is important, especially when you come from a background without a lot of money.
- Think long-term.
“I knew that this is my life, and I can BS because I‘m mad at the coach, but at the end of the day this is my life… So once he said give yourself a chance, that‘s exactly what I did. I started going hard at corner, and things ended up a lot better for me.” –Mr. Just 2 Nice
