Life & Work with Marquieta Luckey

Today we’d like to introduce you to Marquieta Luckey. 

Hi Marquieta, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstories with our readers?

My story starts with me being a single Mom of two children. My daughter is 21 and my son is 15 years old. I have been working since I was 16 years old. I remember being unhappy at my job working as a correctional officer so I decided to write my first book to create opportunities for myself. My book is called Did Me And Paid For It which is a single mother recipe to achieving success.

I share my experience as a single mother and how I was able to speak my life into existence if I was unhappy. I told myself that I would create my happiness by writing my book and setting up speaking engagements to share my story with other people that were not happy with their life. I have always wanted to be an entrepreneur and own a business one day.

I remember writing in my journal December 2019 that I wanted to meet a man that I can run a business with and we are on the same frequency and vibration running a smoothie business together. One day a friend of mine happen to introduce me to this guy that was a manager of a gym and he was a personal trainer. He was fit and in shape and we would enjoy each other company together talking about health and wellness.

He happened to introduce me to Sea Moss for the first time. He let me try one of his smoothies that he was purchasing from someone else. I was so hooked on the sea moss and impressed with the energy it was giving me and the glow it was giving my skin. So, I decided to sell the Sea Moss.

The guy we were buying it from could not keep up with the demand we needed so we decided to start our own Sea Moss business. We have been running our Sea Moss business for the last 3 years. Without him, I would not have stepped out there on faith spending my last $100 to invest in purchasing 50 pounds of Sea Moss. 

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It has not been a smooth road. My business partner and I would go back and forth and have disagreements when it came to the business. I would compare myself to other people on social media and had doubt that I would not be successful if I didn’t have expensive clothes and jewelry. 

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
I have a Sea Moss business that I have been running for 3 years. My business has helped me with taking charge of my health and taking my sea moss daily. Before I started the sea moss, I would have problems with my thyroid. Since I have been consuming the sea moss my health has been great. Even during the year of Covid business picked up and the Sea moss was helping people with inflammation, joint, muscle pain, and weight loss. What sets me apart from others is I want to educate and keep my community healthy. I am proud of myself for not giving up and getting out of my comfort zone and willing to try something different. 

What were you like growing up?
It was tough growing up as a child because I did not have my father there and I wanted to be loved by a man. I was looking for love in all the wrong places. I had to learn before I can love anyone else, I have to love myself.
