Marshall Mend thought he should attend high school just when he felt like it. The principal thought he should attend Monday through Friday, so they parted ways. Marshall dropped out of high school to join his father in the butcher business and then start his own meat delivery company. How he ended up the steak and seafood salesman to television stars and police alike is a tribute to Marshall’s quick wit and ability to follow through. To hear Marshall recount the steps on his way to success is a lesson in knowing when opportunity is knocking at the door and then opening that door very wide to walk fearlessly through it. It is as much fun to listen to him tell the story as it was for him to have lived it. His love letter? One he requested from Loni Anderson while on the set selling her steaks.
