CW Hall and Coach Mark Speaks (Mark Todd)
Coach Mark Speaks
This week I sat down with entrepreneur, coach, and mentor, Mark Todd of Coach Mark Speaks. He shared his story of how he longed to be an entrepreneur as a young kid, tried as a college student and failed, then found a talent he possessed and leveraged it into a successful business.
We talked about how he and a friend decided to start a night club while they were college students, with hopes of building on their love of DJ’ing. Unfortunately, with no experience, no mentors, and limited capital, the partners could not support the business to keep it open during the early start-up phase. While trying to keep the business open, Mark lost his car, used his student loan funds, and was doing anything he could to make his rent.
While trying to save money promoting his business, Mark began creating the graphic design pieces he would distribute about his club. It was then he realized he had a knack for it and once the club shut down, he pivoted and started working to build his graphic design business. 15 years later he came by to talk about what it was that made him achieve success and have the life he always wanted.
He is now spending much of his time authoring (and reading) books on how to succeed and overcome challenges and giving away his time to coach and mentor entrepreneurs and individuals looking to improve their lives.
Coach Mark isn’t an athletic coach although he can help you win the biggest race of your life. He isn’t a life coach, but he can help you live the best life you could ever possibly imagine. Coach Mark is a believability coach. He helps others to increase what they believe is possible for them. That self-belief will help determine how far anyone can go in life.
As a successful entrepreneur over the last 15 years, Coach Mark has built 2 exceedingly successful million-dollar businesses. Driven by his desire to acquire and share knowledge, Coach Mark retired from the day to day operations of his businesses before the age of 40 and decided to spend the rest of his life serving others by sharing his philosophy of continual self improvement. It’s Coach Mark’s belief that life gets better when you get better, and his goal is for each and everyone he encounters to continually get better.
