A former executive at Showtime Networks Inc., Mark Shapiro left the safety of his 12 year career and 6 figure income to live a more fulfilling life and be a positive interruption to the status quo. Through his acclaimed authenticity themed podcast – The One & Only, provocative website – AreYouBeingReal.com, innovative leadership community – Winning Weeks, and TEDx Talk – Want More Love? The Art of Authentic Connection in a Digital World, Mark lovingly challenges people to be real with themselves & others and is re-inventing the way we support & connect with each other – igniting people to stand for what they believe in to live happier, healthier & more connected lives.
In just over 2 years, Mark’s work has touched the lives of over 150,000 people; he has interviewed hundreds of thought leaders, entrepreneurs & artists on The One & Only Podcast (#7 on iTunes in Spirituality; April ’17), grown the Winning Weeks leadership community to hundreds of members, and has conducted cutting-edge social experiments that have earned him the opportunity to speak internationally & share his message with the world. Mark is leading the way with authenticity, integrity & vulnerability, and when he isn’t working, he spends his time playing, dancing, crying & being a vocal Alzheimer’s advocate.
