Marcus' first book, Create and Orchestrate, offers his story, philosophy and wisdom on capturing one's creative power through entrepreneurship. Once a college dropout who waited tables to take care of his family of four, Marcus taught himself how to code, then start businesses, then create things no one thought possible: from becoming an owner in a professional soccer team to being a founding venture capitalist of the most active healthcare venture fund in the United States.
