​Getting in the Zone Buddy Biancalana

In 1978 Buddy Biancalana was a 1st round draft choice of the Kansas City Royals. He made it to the major leagues for the first time in 1982 and became somewhat of a household name thanks to his stellar play in the 1985 World Seriies for the Kansas City Royals. But it didn’t last and within a few years he was out of baseball. After much inner reflection he discovered that it was possible to experience this state more often.

Being in the "zone" is often described as a mystical experience for an athlete and musicain. A tremendous sense of freedom happens by chance that allows them to perform at a very high level. It is what Buddy experienced in the 1985 World Series.  

 He now teaches athletes and musicians how to get in the "zone" through teaching subtle yet powerful processes in the brain. He has consulted with the Chicago Bulls, Portland Trailblazers, Atlanta Braves and St Louis Cardinals, along with training athletes in nine professional and 22 amateur sports.

He is the co-author of The 7 Secrets of World Class Athletes.

I am naturally curious—curious about how i can make my experience of life more fulfilling and more interesting which has led me down many roads. New destinations, new realities, some amazing people—masters of their game—all preparing me for this moment.

We’ve heard the adage that we teach what we want to learn. I wondered if there were possibilities in my life that I wasn’t yet exploring. With that in mind at the turn of the new millennium I made a leap of faith…from successful trial lawyer to life coach and strategist and was created. That was 19 years ago.

The Inspire Possibility Show was the next step. Each week I have conversations with various cutting-edge thought leaders who inspire, enlighten and entertain us. They inspire us to get out of our comfort zones and to explore possibilities that are out there waiting for us. I invite you to join in.

A Few More Things More About Me.

Being a musician has been and still is a lifelong exploration. Being the author of Dancing on the River: Navigating Life’s Changes and the Soul of Uncertainty, A Fable for our Times, has inspired me to look deeper. Playing sports, since I’ve been a kid has been a mainstay of my life. Through it all being a dad has been most fulfilling.

"Mark's coaching, presence and spirit, helps him give others a gentle nudge (and sometimes hard push) toward whatever their future path may hold. As a friend, mentor and spiritual guide, Mark has helped me, quite simply, start to do something that resonates with my soul and spirit."

Warren J. Strudwick, Jr. M.D., - Team Physician, Oakland Raiders

"Intuitive and insightful, Mark worked with me to discover sustainable strategies in overcoming self-limiting behaviors that had become a norm in both my business and personal life."

Danika Davis, PHR, - CEO - Northern California HR Association

"Success doesn't have to be a struggle. Mark knows how to bring out superior performance in his clients. He is masterful."

Raz Ingrasci, - President of the Hoffman Institute

"Mark's recent presentation to the Commonwealth Club inspired our members to see the changes in their lives as opportunities and possibilities rather than as something to avoid."

George Hammond, Chair — Humanities Forum, Commonwealth Club of California

"Mark's recent communication program to our Peernet Organization of all CEO’s taught us the power of communication and how it can positively transform the dynamics of our organizations."

Jay Nathanson, Chairman, Peernet Group
