Peter Jean-Marie is our youngest guest to join us on from Execution to Excellence and we are proud to have on the show!

He shares with us how he was told by his now former manager he could never and would never become a designer in front of customers and colleagues. But took it in stride decided to dream big and not go home! He also talks about his challenges of being a young black man in a city that is predominantly white making a name for him self in fashion industry.

Peter Jean-Marie started modeling at the age 16 landing his first gig with Gap. From there moved on to designing a range of blazers and marketing via social media. In 2016, he won a competition at the Miami International Mall by designing a dress made out of chocolate . 

In 2018 he launched a "Dream Big" campaign to manage his own business. His Dream Big campaign launched on November 2018 at Coastland Center with a pop-up store selling luxury, hand-made neckties from imported fabrics. After the weekend, Jean-Marie commented "**In the first two days, I autographed and gave away 100 signed boxes to my first 100 customers, made over $2,000 in sales, and completely sold out of one collection. This is a great beginning. His future plans include fashion ranges for men and women.
