Ep. 12 Out The Mud & Self-Made with Actor, Recording Artist , & Entrepreneur, Mario Canon
Star Power The Elites, along with Mario’s own music, has the newer generations squarely in mind. He believes that it is important for the youth to have role models, and so he makes it a point to avoid profanity in his music. Truly dedicated to paying it forward, he is involved with a number of local initiatives outside of his art, including fundraisers and toy drives.
Mario grew up living a “double life” and, as a teenager, he had no aspirations besides accumulating money and earning respect on the street. It was only when his son was born later on when Mario realized that he needed to live for people other than himself.
While working at AT&T one day, he was offered an opportunity to work for free at a local gym. Motivated by opportunity, he made the jump and eventually bought that same gym. He began networking and enjoying a new lease on life defined by service to others.
All that time, Mario was still sleeping on an air mattress in an empty home, squeezing in whatever time he had left over to continue building his career as a rapper and actor.
Mario goes on to share how he finally found that momentum that allowed him to share the stage with industry legends (Twista and Bow Wow among them), while building a number of successful businesses all the while. He preaches gratitude, honesty, and being unashamed about wanting more out of life while never forgetting to thank God for the gifts one is currently enjoying.
