"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.

JuVan Langford. Men’s Empowerment Coach (Los Angeles, CA)
