About Mark:

I am a speaker, author and business growth expert who works with business leaders to help them implement a proven, easy-to-use framework to run and grow the firm faster and more profitably, while expending less effort and less time.

Our clients are CEOs with $50-400 million in revenue who are stuck in the “Growth Trap” (more on the Growth Trap: http://tinyurl.com/25mtvx4). Already successful, they are obsessed with creating growth, but cannot predictably generate the growth, financial, or quality of life results they want through their organization.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could implement a proven, sustainable, straightforward framework to run and grow the business faster, more profitably, expending less effort and less time?

That’s exactly what we help our clients do! Here are a few reasons our clients choose us:

1. We have a comprehensive, proven, straightforward approach to permanently overcome the root causes (http://tinyurl.com/25mtvx4) of the “Growth Trap.”

2. We implement crisp accountability and organizational alignment – fast.

3. The results are measurable.

4. We have a satisfaction guarantee and a “short pay” guarantee to lower risk and ensure a return on investment.

We seek referrals to business leaders who are:

1. Open to new ideas that drive profitable growth, or

2. Frustrated that they are in the “Growth Trap,” or

3. Tired of hiring great people who, over time, fail to deliver, or

4 Seeking real, sustainable behavioral change and improved performance

We are a Certified Coaching Partner with Gravitas Impact Premium Coaches (formerly Gazelles International). I am a member of the Global Core Advisory Team for Gravitas Impact Premium Coaches, the Master Trainer for practice development and a Coach / Mentor for other coaches worldwide.

Specialties:

+ Strategic & business planning

Had an extremely deep and inspiring talk on episode 53 with Derrius Quarles and we called this “Part 1” as we just scratched the surface of his journey. We went deep into his upbringing and early years around foster care and how we got out of that situation to get over a Million Dollars in scholarship money to go to college. Ultimately, that drive helped propel him to start Million Dollar Scholar and kick-start his entrepreneur career.

About Derrius

Born and bred on the South Side of Chicago, I marched through 13 years of foster care after losing my father to violence and being separated from my mother to become a first-generation Ivy League graduate.

Experiencing poverty first-hand provided all the motivation I needed to hustle. Selling snacks at Kenwood Academy High School freshman year would spark my passion for building businesses. Since then I have leveraged technology to grow multiple companies that are currently improving the lives of various marginalized groups . My first book, Million Dollar Scholar: Winning The Scholarship Race has helped thousands of students across the globe increase their knowledge of how to make higher education more affordable through scholarships and grants and my business ventures have collectively impacted the lives of over 15,000 marginalized youth in America.

As the Co-Founder and CEO of the financial services company BREAUX Capital, I assist the 70% of Black millennials who would not be able to afford a $1,000 financial emergency enhance their financial health through a powerful combination of software that automates savings behavior and education through a peer community. As the Founder and CEO of Million Dollar Scholar, an education technology social enterprise, I help low-income high school students acquire scholarships to pursue higher education. As the Founder and Brand Architect at DQ and Partners, a web design agency, I partner with emerging business and influencer brands that are improving communities in the fields of education, technology, health, art, and equity.  

A driving force behind my inspiration is a humbling honor I received from Harry Belafonte at the 2012 Common Ground Gala hosted by musician and actor, Common. Mr. Belafonte said to the audience that “Derrius is the dream Dr. King and I, as well as so many others, fought for…”. Since that evening, I have decided to carry the metaphoric torch that he handed to me.

In 2015, I was honored by Barack Obama at the White House for his activism in expanding educational access and named to Black Enterprise’s 100 Modern Men in 2017.  Beyond these awards, my work has been highlighted by Time Magazine, The New York Times, Associated Press, CNN, HuffPost, MTV, and BET amongst others. Most recently, I was an Entrepreneur in Residence at TED where I delivered a dope TED Talk discussing the role large banks have played in economically marginalizing Black Americans and the innovation BREAUX Capital represents in the marketplace for Black millennials.

Episode 52 features newly minted Author, Rita Serra! Had an incredible conversation with Rita that takes us all over the world and explores her journey traveling and writing her book of poetry.

I am always fascinated by people who can just go out on their own and travel to exotic and interesting places without thinking twice about it and Rita is certainly one of those people. Her stories about traveling to Europe and southeast Asia are incredible and excited for everyone to listen through this episode and get to know Rita a little more.

About Rita:

Heyyo! I’m Rita, a funky, free-spirited, often forget… Full of life, writer. This blog focuses on my escapades as a solo, female, budget traveler who lives an alternative lifestyle constantly in transit.

When I first set out into the world, I had a simple eight month trip split between Europe and Asia in mind. After about 48 hours of being in Asia I knew normalcy was forever adversary and I was destined to be a renegade revolving on the backside of reality. I decided perma-vagabond was the life for me.

If you DREAM of traveling the world but don’t think you have what it takes, think again! You don’t have to be an epic hero to travel the globe. I’m much closer to being Clark Griswold than Odysseus. Don’t believe me? Once I managed to walk 40 minutes down the street before realizing my backpack was unzipped, and when I finally did I no longer owned a raincoat. Later that same day, I left my Firkenstocks ($5 “Birkenstocks”)  behind in a different city. This brought my lost ‘n wandering soul count to five pairs of sandals in five months. Yeah…

Now that I’ve put my (probably bare) foot in my mouth, I hope I conveyed: if I can do this, anybody can.

Despite never ceasing to put the blonde in that blonde vagabond, I’ve been surviving and thriving alone, and on the road for over two years. I am chock-full of travel tips and have self-deprecating stories galore. That’s right, the laughs on me and I won’t even charge you my two cents… Oh I should probably mention, I like to pepper in puns to spice things up. So call me Hootie, because if you hold my hand, I’ll take you to the promise land.

Episode 50 was a blast to be speaking with Certified Executive Coach, Jackie Serviss. Jackie has had quite an interesting journey throughout her life from coming up through the ranks of competitive swimming, to scaling up the corporate ladder, to having her life turned upside down by a medical diagnosis. It’s all come full circle and now she is helping other individuals see their potential and perform at their best.

About Jackie:

HEY! I’m Jackie. A former Corporate Executive turned Coach with a passion to optimize human potential. In today’s rapid paced environment, our ability to have real & authentic conversations is limited. In fact, as humans we often move through our days on autopilot thinking the same thoughts, creating the same experiences and having the same results.

The majority of our conditioned behaviours and thought patterns leave us determined to gain success, happiness and recognition outside of ourselves. Believing that the new car, job title or relationship will create our fulfillment and happiness. We seek recognition and approval from society, communities, parents, friends and loved ones – yet we live a life with internal chaos, high levels of stress, often feeling overwhelmed and anxious. That’s where I come in.

Bringing conscious awareness to the limiting belief systems and conditioned behaviours will allow you to shift your perspective and make empowered choices. As a coach, I use a hybrid approach leveraging my background in Corporate Human Resource, Executive Coaching, Neuroscience and Spirituality to create forward momentum for those that are feeling stuck. Each program is designed to meet you in your current reality and is focused on quieting the mind, simplifying life, creating realistic boundaries and clear action plans.

On Episode 48 I sit down with a great guy and someone I’ve gotten to know well over the past year, Joshua Peach. Peach is a Corporate Evangelist at Dude Solutions and shares the great message of the company across the country with many events and speaking engagements. Additionally, Peach started a movement called Be Au Sm that is swiffering the nation and bringing a positive message that is much needed in our world today.

About Peach:

Twenty-seven years ago on my 16th birthday, my mother dropped me off at the local Shaw’s supermarket to apply for a job. I landed the job of bagger/carriage wrangler and quickly learned how important customer service is to an individual’s shopping experience. The smiles and services provided by the employees were just as, if not more, important than the items on the shelf or competitive pricing the store offered. At 17 years old I was named the Employee of the Month for three months in a row. Although there have been the expected bumps in the road that two plus decades of working brings, for the most part I have carried the idea that a positive attitude can change an entire day. 

For the last fifteen years I have been a part of a dream team at Dude Solutions, Inc. I spent the first twelve years in sales, starting out as a client representative and eventually becoming a National Strategic Sales Leader. Three years ago my role transitioned and I became the first Corporate Evangelist at Dude Solutions. I have the pleasure of speaking to tens of thousands of people and the ability to attempt to make a positive impact on as many of those people as possible. Along with my speaking engagements for Dude Solutions, I am in the process of releasing a weekly podcast as well as a book titled “Be Au Sm: The Essential Elements to Kicking Ass”.

I had a wonderful time speaking with the Founder & CEO of the up and coming Podcasting platform called Pippa. I’ve been thrilled with the platform and ease-of-use and wanted to pry deeper into Simon’s journey and background and why he decided to start this company. Very intriguing episode and really showcases the fact that as long as you keep working hard in life and being curious that doors and opportunities can open.

About Simon:

Originally from South Africa, Simon is persistently curious: he came to NYC to attend NYU for grad school in philosophy, then completed studies in math and finance, before leaving the classroom to pursue his passion for media and technology. Simon is an analytically driven leader with experience at TED, the Clinton Global Initiative, and K2 Intelligence.

Simon was the Founder and CEO of Pippa.io before they were acquired by Acast in 2019. Currently, Simon is the VP of Experience for Acast, the world’s most impressive and exciting podcast company.

I met Christina through a recommendation of a prior guest, Tisha Abrea (Ep. 16), and was so fortunate to get a chance to hear her story and learn through some of the lessons she had to go through in her career.  I love that she refers to periods of her life as “seasons” and although she is in a busy season I was appreciative she was able to take time out of her day and share her story.

We get into some of her struggles on the golf course during LPGA Tour Qualifying School and how she broke out of the mold that everyone else thought she she be in and ultimately flourished by following a different path with her golf hosting, mindset coaching, and motivational speaking.

About Christina:

Unlike most professional golfers, Christina was a late-comer to the sport. Born in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada Christina did not play any golf before the age of 18. However, this wasn’t due to a lack of exposure to the game. Christina’s father, Tony Lecuyer, has long been one of Alberta’s biggest names in golf. Her two younger brothers, Ryan and Steven, were also two of Canada’s best amateurs winning the 2003 Canadian Junior Boys’ Championship and 2010 Alberta Amateur Championship, respectively. Christina certainly picked up the game quickly. Christina won the first golf tournament she ever entered, the 2002 Edmonton Ladies Amateur Championship, and attracted the attention of numerous college recruiters finally landing on the University of Central Arkansas in 2003. Christina had an outstanding collegiate career, both on the golf course and in the classroom. She won five collegiate tournaments, had 24 Top Ten finishes, and was a 2-time All-American honorable mention. Christina was an even better performer in the classroom, graduating Magna Cum Laude in 2007 in Business Administration. After wrapping up her collegiate career in 2007, Christina focused her attention on the professional circuit. She played various mini-tours from 2007-2010 qualifying for LPGA final stage three consecutive years. She was featured on the Golf Channel’s Big Break Series twice, coming out on the winning end on Big Break Reunion: Dominican Republic. She has also been sought after for many on-camera opportunities and most recently co-hosted Swing Clinic on Fox Sports Regional Networks. Now Christina’s focus is her love of entertaining clients at corporate and charity golf events, mentoring others, and publicly speaking. She’s sought out by world-renowned corporations and has raised millions of dollars for charity.

In Episode 19 I get a chance to talk sales with one of the most well sought out after Sales Trainers out there, John Barrows.

John has provided sales training and consulting services to some of the world’s fastest growing companies like Salesforce.com, Google,  LinkedIn, DropBox, and many others. His previous experience spans all aspects of Sales at every level from making 400 cold calls a week as an inside sales rep to a VP of Sales at his first start up that was sold to Staples.   

He’s an active sales professional who has learned a lot about what works and doesn’t work in Sales and loves sharing the tips and techniques he has found to have had an impact along the way. His main goal is to improve the overall education and quality of Sales by sharing ideas and techniques that work.

In this episode I get to talk with John about his upbringing and how he came about to become a sales trainer, insight for sales professionals and how they should look at their careers, and one of the biggest differences between top performing sales professionals and the rest.

In Episode 18, We speak with Stu Heinecke about his career in marketing, how he broke into being a cartoonist, and ways people can think about bringing value and setting themselves apart from the pack.  Stu has done some neat things throughout his career and figuring out a way to combine his passion for marketing along with his creative chops of being a Cartoonist led him to forging ahead with his own business and seeing success early on.  

About Stu Heinecke

If ever there was someone born to write a book like How To Get A Meeting with Anyone, Stu Heinecke is that person.  A Wall Street Journal cartoonist, Hall of Fame-nominated marketer and author, Heinecke discovered the magic of “Contact Marketing” early in his career, when he launched a Contact Campaign to just two dozen Vice Presidents and Directors of Circulation at the big Manhattan-based magazine publishers.  That tiny $100 investment resulted in a 100% response rate, launched his enterprise and brought in millions of dollars worth of business.

The ability to connect with the people most important to realizing one’s goals ultimately became an obsession.  While Heinecke regularly employs his own cartoon-based contact methods, he became intensely interested in how others have solved this unique challenge.  As a result, he has uncovered a highly unique form of marketing that until now has had no name, yet it produces response rates as high as 100% and ROI figures in the tens, even hundreds of thousands of percent.  In How To Get A Meeting with Anyone, he not only gives Contact Marketing its name, but provides us with a definitive guide to what it is, how it works and has cataloged twenty categories of Contact Campaign types.

Heinecke is the host of Contact Marketing Radio, Founder and President of “Contact,” a Contact Marketing agency, and co-Founder of Cartoonists.org, a coalition of famed cartoonists dedicated to raising funds for charity, while raising the profile of the cartooning art form.  He lives on an island in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with his wife, Charlotte, and their dog, Bo.

Episode 17 features Professional Golfer and Social Media Influencer Tisha Abrea.  I came across Tisha last year and was impressed with her personality and style to help promote her uniqueness and grow her brand online.  Besides her own brand (which she gives props to Paige Spiranac @_paige.renee for the push), she is working hard to bring the @womenwithdrive movement to light with her friend @nikkibgolf and promote the game to women of all ages.

As you’ll gather from our interview, Tisha has a tremendous personality and sense of humor and shares many stories of how she got into the game of golf, competing under pressure, advice to the younger athletes, and dancing…of course we discuss her dancing 🙂

I hope you all enjoy this wide ranging conversation with Tisha Abrea.

In Episode 16 I get a chance to speak with a talented musician and America’s Got Talent Golden Buzzer recipient, Michael Ketterer.  I saw Michael’s performance on AGT and was extremely inspired by his story as well as his great voice. I reached out to him and he graciously accepted the invite.  Michael is a Pediatric Mental Health Nurse by trade and has been involved in music since his father exposed him to it when he was very young.

Michael and I speak about his childhood and how his father got him into music, his family as a great support system, getting a chance to be interviewed by Mario Lopez and of course we get some of his insight surrounding his life changing performance on America’s Got Talent.  Here is the link to that performance if you haven’t seen it – Michael Ketterer on America’s Got Talent

Humbled to have the chance to speak with this guy given that he has been on every major show over the past couple of weeks.

I hope you all enjoy our conversation

Episode 15 features Michael Bosstick, CEO of Dear Media, a Podcast network primarily focused around female hosts and talent, and he is the Co-Host of the Skinny Confidential Him and Her Podcast.  I was fortunate to interview his wife, Lauryn Evarts (@theskinnyconfidential) back in Episode 11 and really enjoyed getting a chance to speak with Michael in this episode and learning about his unique story.

Michael learned early on from his father that you have to work for what you want and after some early childhood jobs he figured out that he wanted to pave his own path and create opportunities for himself.  Early after college Michael ventured out to fill a gap he found in corporate aircrafts with a business called JetBeds and has now grown that over the last 10 years to be the most successful company in the space.

Michael is now extremely involved in digital media and finding new and creative ways to build an online brand.  We converse about many topics including business, the power of voice as a platform of the future, and many other intriguing insights.  

I enjoyed one of Michael’s quotes where he says, “I spend 90% of my time focusing on solutions and 10% of the time looking at the problem”, and it’s no surprise he’s been successful with his optimistic mindset on business and how to scale effectively.

Episode 14 features Carolynn Lemke, the Founder of Noble Friends Shop.  Was excited to get the chance to speak with Carolynn not only because of the great work she is doing to grow her business but because we go way back to the same small town as her and I graduated high school together.  I’m so proud to see the success of many of my classmates and after learning more of Carolynn’s story I am cheering her on even more as her journey continues.

Carolynn has a tremendous personality and a gift for illustration and I think anyone seeking to find their own creativity, looking to start their own business, or just needing some inspiration to get started will pull a lot from this interview.
