The big difference in the work that Marvin did within Corporate America and what he currently does with ARCpoint is that his touches people in very personal ways and provide information that impact peoples’ lives.
Marvin basic philosophy has been – “The will to win means nothing without the will to prepare.” This philosophy carries over to the services that ARCpoint Labs provides, and the ways in which they go about performing those services. His inspirations are without a doubt his wife & father. Entrepreneurship certainly can have its challenges. His wife, Candace, has been the biggest supporter for him in following his entrepreneurial dreams, while his father who was a veteran of Vietnam War veteran, demonstrated perseverance. Most of Marvin’s philosophies & business views on the importance of great customer service are based on what his father shared with him.
