“Talent is all around. People have to not be scared to do it.”
Originally from from Sylacauga, Alabama, Marvin Harvey aka The Talented Guy Enterprises has had quite the journey to finding himself an author in Indianapolis, Indiana. At 38 years old, he’s quite the entrepreneur being both an inventor (with several patents under his belt) and a writer (The Pray’n Mantis from Tate Publishing).
He drove from his home in Alabama to stay with his friend’s aunt and uncle in Indianapolis. This provided the stability needed for him to find work. He worked a series of temp jobs until he found his place with a steel plant near 42nd and Post Road. In 2000, he got laid off from that job and he cried out to God. He grew up watching cartoons and wanted to create himself as a superhero. He wanted to do something different: rather than getting his powers from the world, he had God give him the powers. So he began to write.
When he was growing up, he dreamed of being an entrepreneur. When he was 16 years old, he started working for other people but wanted to eventually do and create his own thing. Like everyone else, he has his struggles, but as he often says, “I’m not a quitter.” He would love to teach and mentor young artists and entrepreneurs.
