  1. Alignment: Aligning your thoughts, feelings and behaviors

  2. Trust: Trusting yourself, Others, Your Higher Power and Lyf Itself 

  3. Letting Go: Letting Go of Self-Limiting Beliefs, Fears and Emotions that no longer serve you

…starting with the most important relationship of all - the one with yourself.

Marc Longwith

Managing Partner / Beyond Success Coach / Lyfer

As far back as Marc can remember he wanted to be a warrior. You could find him running around the house in a karate uniform, or all decked out in camouflage pretending to be a soldier. Funny enough, when the time came, and he was old enough (5 yrs. old) to train martial arts he quickly shied away. He remembers being scared and extremely intimidated. Navigating this part of himself at such a young age was nearly impossible. Marc faced many challenges as a child and had quite the unstable home environment. This played a crucial role in Marc becoming independent at an early age and learning to be responsible for himself. Marc's urge to train never went away, and by the time he was 12 he made the jump. Marc started boxing at a local boxing gym in his hometown of Las Vegas. Marc took two buses and walked 1.5 miles to the gym every day, which was about 20 miles from his home. Drive and tenacity were always his strong points, it was his ability to stick to the course that he struggled with. Martial Arts was the key factor in him developing that discipline.

After a year and a half of boxing he became bored and wanted more from his training. Marc browsed the phone book and took a bus or caught a ride to every single studio he found interesting. Marc looked at a dozen or so schools until he found the right one for him. Marc remember vividly the intrigue he felt shortly after walking in the door. He was 14 years old and watching these guys was like watching magic. The name of the school and the art was Kung Fu San Soo.

The school was real, practical, and extremely violent. This appealed to him because not only were they keeping it real, but they were practicing every piece of a fight situation. Striking, ground-work, mauling techniques, leverages, throws, knife-stick-gun, etc. Mind you this was 1993 and the first UFC didn’t happen till later that year. There was no Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in Las Vegas, and MMA was not even coined yet. San Soo in his opinion was the first real example of MMA. Marc trained diligently over the next decade and earned his black belt when he was 24 years old (1 of only 5 black belts to ever come out of the school in 15 years and 1000’s of students). By this point Marc was training Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and had decided to compete professionally in MMA. Marc's MMA career was short lived although he did compete against two very notable opponents, Jared “J-Roc” Rollins and Jason “Mayhem” Miller.

Throughout Marc's 20’s he continued to teach San Soo and train BJJ under the instruction of amazing coaches such as Rigan Machado, Sergio Penha, Fredson Paixao, Marc Laimon, and Cameron Diffley. He also trained Muay Thai under the instruction of phenomenal coaches such as Dewey Cooper, Shawn Yarborough, Kathy Long, and Sao Hin.

Marc was working his way up through the F&B industry in Las Vegas and found a new passion in service, and eventually wine. Marc's career lead him from glass polisher, to busboy, to food runner, to server, and eventually to Sommelier. Marc opened Bellagio in 1998 under world renown chef Todd English and Wynn in 2005 under Stephen Cult. Marc also worked for celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse. Marc eventually wound up at STK at the Cosmopolitan as a sommelier, managing a $12 million/year beverage program that did $5million in wine and $26 million combined revenue between F&B. Being a sommelier is a prestigious position on its own, combining that with the success of such a monster restaurant speaks volumes. Marc knew that there were only two places to go from here. Either climb the corporate ladder or do his own thing. Marc's spirit and drive kept him from the former.


Marc partnered with a few of his buddies from the Bellagio days and decided to open a brewpub in downtown Las Vegas. Beer was up double digits in a down economy and downtown Las Vegas was booming, it was also missing a fresh local brewpub. Marc's partners and he knew nothing about beer or business for that matter. They made a $5000 investment in a home brewery and brought on a buddy who home brewed as a hobby. They brewed out of Marc's garage for 4 years and saved $250K. Developed a PPM (Private Placement Memorandum) and partnered with Tony Hsieh (Zappos CEO and founder) and Andy Masi (Former founder and owner of Light Group) raising an additional $1/2 million dollars. Marc and team opened in the heart of downtown Las Vegas on the corner of Las Vegas Blvd. and Fremont Street. They doubled their revenue from year 1 to year 3 going from $500,000 to almost a $million dollars in sales.

As time passed their expertise allowed them the opportunity to consult on multiple F&B products, from brewpubs to bars to restaurants. Their largest consulting client currently is Station Casinos. The 3nd largest Casino operator in Nevada behind MGM and Caesars corporation, and the largest local gaming conglomerate in the state. As Marc begin to consult professionally he found multiple friends and clients not only asking for help with their businesses, but with their lives. The way he was living his own life was drawing attention and he didn’t even realize it.

By this point Marc had discovered that his true happiness came from helping people, he just wasn’t sure in which capacity to focus on. After some major soul searching and traveling he decided to employ a coach of his own. Marc had been advising people his whole life, whether it be teaching martial arts, helping a friend get in shape, consulting on a project, or just helping a buddy file a Trademark or start an LLC and open a business checking account. Marc figured it was his turn to seek some wisdom. While working with his coach he remembered one major conversation that stood out about his future. He said to Marc, if your main goal is to grow your wealth to the point that you can help others in the world than why don’t you just grow your wealth while helping others. Marc said ok, great idea, but how do I do that. He told Marc you’re already doing it every day, you just haven’t made a business out of it. This piece of information was worth every penny Marc spent on him.

That was the moment of inception for Business Jiu Jitsu. The first greatest insight from my coach was that Marc really was doing what he wanted to be doing he just hadn’t developed it into a business yet. The second greatest insight was to add his unique style and swag to his business. This is where the Jiu Jitsu came in. Martial arts are a part of Marc. He has been training for over 25 years. The principles and discipline he has attained through his training has been the key factor in his success in life and in business. It is Marc's dream to help as many people as he can achieve their dreams and transform their lives. We all have our own brilliance within us, it is Marc's job to cultivate that brilliance within his clients and teach them the discipline needed to execute their dreams.
