Part 1…

Winning the Fear Game

We all have fears. They are debilitating, limiting and self-destructive. Fear is normal, AND it is also imaginary. We make stuff up to justify how we feel about something. To deal with the uncertainty and anxiety that we feel whenever there is something new, some challenge, or simply an old habit. Our  fears are what keep us playing small, and you can overcome them.

How does your limited beliefs hold you back, where do you play small to avoid being seen, heard or otherwise present to the fullness of who you are? Discover the tricks and tools you need to combat these limiting behaviors and shape your life with confidence. 

Jacqueline Wales is the founder of Innerfluence, a leading expert on transformational change, and Chief Opportunity Officer at The Liautaud Institute. She is also the author of several books including The Fearless Factor, and a novel, When The Crow Sings.

Her programs are renowned for her global experience breaking through barriers, and unleashing human potential to exalt, instruct and inspire people in business, government and philanthropy to achieve well beyond their expectations. For those who hunger to become engaged and satisfied as top performers - at work and in their lives,  Jacqueline Wales is the short cut!

Part 2.

Happy Brain: 

Loretta Graziano Breuning, PhD is the author of Habits of a Happy Brain: Retrain Your Brain to Boost Your Serotonin, Dopamine, Oxytocin and Endorphin Levels. She founded the Inner Mammal Institute to help people build new neural pathways to manage their mammal brain in new ways. ( As Professor of Management at California State University, and a mom, she was not convinced by prevailing theories of human motivation. While researching alternatives, she uncovered the brain chemistry we share with animals. Then everything made sense, and she began creating resources to spread this knowledge: books, videos, podcasts, infographics, slide shows, social media and blogs. Dr. Breuning has helped thousands of people "make peace with the animal inside." And she still she marvels every day at the overlap between a wildlife documentary and the lyrics to a love song.

Your happy chemicals are meant to do a job, not to be on all the time.

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
