    Based on what I saw afterwards from the audience, Mark's talk was the most influential. I saw so many people buzzing about it.  There's a lot of gold in giving people useful advice that they can take away.

    Marc Stoiber (TEDx Event Producer)

    I love the sincerity Mark brought to the stage. The smile, the energy, and talking about something he truly cares about: helping people deepen their relationships. Mark was open, authentic, caring, and shows that you can serve people and have fun doing it.

    Taylor Conroy (President, The Idea Collective)

    Mark inspired me to start using video messenger/video on my phone to connect on a more personal level with friends, family, and Acquaintances; breaking free from my ego and sending birthday messages, thank you's, and simple hellos/wishing you well. If you get a video message from me, I show up to your art show and you haven’t seen me in 15 years...well, you will know where the inspiration came from.

    Morgan M. (Director of Publicity, Focus Pictures)

    There are still real people behind social media and we all want to be connected in authentic ways. It is not easy though! The world needs more Mark Shapiro to inspire them and teach them how to be real.

    Linda S. (Sales Leadership Coach)

    Mark Shapiro really nails it with the personal touch of sending someone a video message! This is inspiring me soo much to reach out with all the members of my community in the same way.

    Love & Praise on Facebook

    With all of the drama and negativity that circulates, it is so refreshing to uplift others through positivity!!

    Amy M (Workshop Attendee)

    I believe a smile goes a long way. I use it as my daily practice and reminder that no matter what is happening in my life there are always things to be grateful for. I use a smile to share it with others; have you experienced stranger smiling at you and you couldn't help but smile back? And how did you feel after? Were you kinder and more appreciative to whatever followed next? Well, I trust you did. Mark Shapiro takes it a step further and helps you integrate great practices into your life.

    "Mark's relatable, so people can say 'That guys is just like me, he had a great job, was married, and had the courage to make these changes.” Thus, People are more inclined to take the same leap and challenge the status quo.'"

    Light Watkins. Author & Meditation Practitioner (Los Angeles, CA)

    “It’s awesome to see how he’s rippled out the impact and carried the torch. He’s an inspirational guy, so it's no surprise to see people gravitate toward him. He impacts people in such a way where they would come out to anything, no matter what it is he’s involved with, people will show up."

    Quddus. TV Host (Los Angeles, CA)

    Mark creates a place and space for tears, fears, and cheers to flow with no judgement. Real is really the only thing you get from Mark in his coaching, speaking & workshops.

    James Kinney. CEO, 30k FT (Los Angeles, CA)

    I love what Mark's up to and how he shows up, open-hearted.  I think if more men truly stepped up to the plate and really stood in their authenticity, this world would be an even more incredible place. I’m thankful for what Mark is doing. I really acknowledge him for what he is so committed to creating. He’s connecting people.

    Quddus Phillipe. Be You Authenticity Workshop Attendee

    "Overall I felt very recharged and energized afterwards. I loved how good it feels to be vulnerable and open and have people truly give their best to listen in a non-judgmental way. Talking about deep stuff with complete strangers can be freeing. I also love the exercises, they were super fun."
