About Marian Evans
Marian Evans rose to unwanted fame when the secret got out about her buying her childhood dream property Llansteffan Castle and Plas Farm. This was later featured on a TV documentary that followed her and her family’s life on S4C called Teulu’r Castell. Marian is unique in the way that she captures the hearts and minds of her audience humbly sharing her story from being a welsh farmer’s daughter to a multi-millionaire self made business person and property investor.
Work ethic and winning was drummed into Marian at such a young age with her rushing home excited to tell her beloved father she had run a race at school and come in second.
To which he responded : “Second place is the first loser.”
This fired up something in Marian that would never be extinguished making her determined to always win whatever race there was with herself. Target driven and working with circles of focus, to use everything to her advantage meant there was no space for second place.
The success that could have made her lofty was kept grounded by her farm working roots and her imposter syndrome which she continues to rally against by being brave.
