Seven Summits of Inspiration

Most of us are in search of something greater — to find an elevated purpose in our work and in our lives. But, we may also lack the discipline or practical knowledge for how to set a course to achieve it.

Find out how Mark pulled himself out of his personal struggles 10 years ago by setting a big goal. To climb the Seven Summits (which are the highest mountains on each continent), how on Everest summit day, overcame being snow blind, face burned, missed a cyclone, an outbreak of Covid & ran out of oxygen descending, yet still persevered to summit Mt Everest.

Mark’s pyramid of success strategies help business leaders and their teams get off the sidelines, re-engage in life, and win by applying a proven set of principles, process, and tools which Mark has applied to thrive in the NFL, mountains and now helping Maven, the parent company to Sports Illustrated up-list to NASDAQ in 2021.

The Pyramid of Success was created by John Wooden & then adapted by Mark’s Hall of Fame coach Don James. Now Mark has created his own version called the Seven Summits of Success. In his speeches, Mark teaches audiences to achieve at their highest level using this framework.
