We had the good fortune of connecting with Marquavis Fant and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Marquavis, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
Entrepreneurship isn’t an easy road, my personal belief is that risk taking plays a major role in being self employed. There was times where I’ve doubted myself in the past because I was scared to fail. I believe once you understand the concept that everything has a 50% chance of you winning the mission, your road gets a little bit easier. In business even the most successful people have times where they take a risk and fail. When I started to bet on myself is when I started to win big, I trained my mind to think that if I believe I will win then that’s exactly what would happen. I honestly gets the best results when taking the bigger risks.

What should our readers know about your business?
I happen to be a business owner of 3, Fantastic Eats Catering where I’m the owner and Head Chef of, Entrepreneurs Don’t Sleep which is a clothing company of mine and Fantastic Eats Spices is my food seasoning company. I’m very proud of how far along my Catering company has come. The passion for business started around 10-11 years ago selling lunch and dinner plates to my local peers. Cooking has always been something Ive done on the side to earn extra income while working other jobs. It grew to be a strong passion of mine at a very early age. There had been many ups and downs while pursuing my endeavors but has been extremely worth it as I’ve learned so much on my Journey. The lifetime lesson that will always stick with me is to never give up. There are so many emotions that you will go through while on your journey to success and the best advice is to never forget the end goal. Entrepreneurs Don’t Sleep is a brand that was created from hash tagging the phrase on social media platforms. The brand started to receive a lot of attention as people who were striving to be entrepreneurs could easily relate to the saying. My purpose for creating the brand came from wanting business like people and entrepreneurs to get together and collaborate on how we could all help one another in some type of way. March is sold locally in Dallas or on my website www.edsthemovement.com. Fantastic Eats Spices is my food seasoning line that can also be purchased at the same website, currently there are 3 different seasonings “Put that on Everything all purpose seasoning, Cajun lemon pepper & a taco seasoning.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Dallas is a city where if you wanted to do something entertaining everyday you could. Theres an huge variety of restaurants and bars to visit as well as many tourist attractions to visit.
