KindFluence: Utilizing kindness & authenticity to make positive lasting impressions.



On a Global Level

It’s getting increasingly more difficult to garner attention, connect authentically, and make a positive impact. With the presence of social media, the polarizing political environment, and ever-increasing workplace demands, people are DISTRACTED, DISTRUSTING, DISCONNECTED, and DISSATISFIED.

On a Professional Level

According to a Gallup Poll of American workers, 65% of people report feeling a lack of appreciation at work, and 70% of employees don’t feel motivated & engaged. In other words, poor relationships in the workplace lead to negativity, low morale, decreased productivity, and employee churn.

On a Personal Level

According to the acclaimed LifeBoat study, 63% of Americans are not confident in their friendships and the average American only has 2 real friends. The struggle to build and maintain healthy social bonds is real, and it’s also why we have a loneliness epidemic.

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)

"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.

"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."

"Best Speed Dating Ever! Friendly environment and people. Everyone was very organic and opened to meeting others. Not typical speed dating event at all. Everyone that is single must try this at least once. I got out of my comfort zone and I'm glad I did. Met a great group of beautiful people."
