    cannot keep to gain what
    he cannot lose.

  • As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.


  • You weren't made to fit in,
    you were made to stand out.

Like Neo, in The Matrix, are you facing a choice? Take the risk and move forward into the unknown, or stay within the borders of familiar?

Life presents red pill moments all the time. The key is to notice and be willing to act. Those that do create a life that is alive, adventurous, fulfilling.

  • Mark takes you through a journey of self discovery. His gentle prompts towards determining your own path and setting your own goals aligns your life towards actionable items. Highly recommended to anyone who is looking to find a balance of just living life and finding peace with yourself.

  • I've been working with Mark since March 2017. No regrets. What I've experienced is a coach who listens to more than your words. He feels with you, dances with you, and if you want, prays with you. I always leave the session with something new, useful, and actionable. This relationship will go on a while.”

  • Over the last year, as I’ve made the transition from my 30 year corporate career to starting my own business, I’ve found Mark’s coaching to be quite invaluable. He brings together his great coaching instinct coupled with tons of relevant business / life experience to challenge me to gain new perspectives and go further.

  • I’ve known for a few years that some changes needed to happen in my life in order to see the outcomes God wanted for me. When I contacted Mark, I was already in process toward some of these changes but had gotten stuck. Mark did a great job facilitating the necessary internal dialogue needed for drawing out the conclusions and now I am a huge step closer to where I’m going.
