2020 has incited a flight or fight response for many entrepreneurs including myself. This can be helpful in times of acute stress, but Infinite Journey helps reground to the bigger picture and provides a framework of how to approach such dynamic times.
The focus on a few clear but powerful principles and how they interact prompts powerful introspection. The concepts are easy to conceptualize but hard to implement; I'm excited to use the techniques outlined here and apply them to my own life challenges!Harrison Hunter, CTO MaestroQA, Forbes 30 Under 30 (2020)
Mark is one of the most inspiring and genuinely caring people I've ever met - and to say his energy is contagious is a vast understatement. Upbeat, animated, and devoutly committed to connecting with others in an authentic, meaningful way, he is a brilliant communicator and a voice truly worth being heard. Both extraordinarily compassionate and engaging, Mark embodies nothing short of radical acceptance of others and infuses positivity and purpose into his conversations through a rare combination of passion, sincerity, and playfulness. Mark is a relentless advocate illuminating the essential focus most of us unintentionally lose sight of: that we all have the choice to make the most of life, regardless of our circumstances or struggles. His presence and message have the power to influence anyone's life for the better. Mean every word!

Mark is extraordinarily compassionate. He immediately showed me unconditional acceptance of what I shared with him and guided me directly to mindful self-compassion. His energy is upbeat, engaging, and lovingly honest - committed to connecting 'my stories/experiences as data/reflection points', in purposeful and meaningful ways. Mark weaves positivity and purpose into our time together through a unique combination of curiosity, sincerity, and playfulness.

Mark is an awesome coach. He has great intuition. He works without judgment. What I like the best is his ability to connect with you, making you feel comfortable all the way. He is trustworthy and easy to talk to. He is definitely interested in what you want to accomplish and will invest himself to help you achieve what your heart desires.
Mearl from Eaton, OH
Thank you Mark! You have tapped into something that has truly transformed my way of thinking and being. You have given me tools that I only ever read about but never was able to figure out how to put them into daily practice. Your unwavering care and empathy for me, allowed me to feel safe and comfortable, to open up and be vulnerable like I never have been with another person before. You have shown me by example on how non-judgment and being vulnerable is a great strength.
Carl from Los Angeles, CA
Mark is an amazingly talented coach. He truly has a great way of seeing the blocks within, that keep me from accessing my true potential. He asks key questions to find my answers within. It’s powerful to see them for myself. With this new awareness I can choose to create the life of my choosing. He creates a safe space, so I feel empowered to explore everything (even the stuff I had no clue was even there) that is affecting my life. I can see how all areas of my life are effected by coaching, and it emboldens me on the journey to become the amazing human I was created to be. Thank you Mark for walking this journey with me.
Shannon from Cedar Rapids, IA
Mark is truly a nurturing life coach for adults and children. After my personal coaching sessions with Mark, I contacted him regarding my twelve year old daughter, who was dealing with bullying at school. She is a quiet and cautious child, but was able to open up quickly with Mark. He gently guided her to find solutions within herself to be able to effectively respond to the other girl involved as well as gain personal strength while being true to herself. She gained understanding and compassion for her former friend and chose to deal with the situation with love and kindness. She looks forward to her coaching sessions and always ends her sessions with such joy and confidence. To coincide with her sessions, Mark coaches me on how to guide my daughter on this journey as well as other growing pains this stage of life can present. He has recommended numerous resources for information for my husband and I to learn more about conscious parenting. His guidance is transforming. Our coaching sessions are enlightening and invaluable.
Laura from Ann Arbor, MI
Mark is an adept listener, highly compassionate, always positive and motivating and extremely focused with support. He asks questions....the hard questions.... that makes you realize the path you need to take to uncover your true self. He is a dynamite person and you will be grateful for choosing him as your coach.
Mary Lynn from Sault Ste. Marie, ON, Canada
Mark has such amazing positive energy! He is able to see the whole picture and allows a client to move beyond the pieces of the puzzle to real synthesis. Intuition is his strong gift along with his ability to move into new territory enables one to develop amazing "aha" moments. Mark's philosophy is that there are only great connections and continual growth. Each session is an exciting adventure and I have clearly gained insights into my life that have brought about genuine joy and completion. I highly recommend Mark as a coach.
Ann from Champaign, IL
Mark is an amazing coach! He provides a safe place to speak openly with the utmost compassion, respect, and honesty.

Mark is an excellent active listener who helped me uncover new perspectives on a few key aspects of my life using very incisive questions. Mark also provided me valuable feedback on a few personal characteristics that I was not aware of – a very rewarding experience. I would highly recommend Mark as a leadership coach.
