In Iraq, Mark noticed that it was not only his military training, but that the power of mental toughness, emotional resilience, intuitive leadership and a healthy spirit were responsible for his breakthrough performance. These skills weren’t solely for combat, they were essential for success in business, relationships, virtually all aspects of life. And anyone could benefit from integrating them. Through Mark’s teaching, entrepreneurial endeavors and travel to foreign countries, he watched people's transformations as they adopted the principles he espoused in his first book and at-home study program, Unbeatable Mind.

Mark's many and varied experiences have shaped his direction, but there is nothing that has had a bigger impact on his life than his time in the military.

He has seen veterans give everything they have to protect their country, however on their return to civilian life, they often deal with physical, mental and emotional trauma - and it goes untreated. The Courage Foundation was founded to holistically help veterans heal themselves holistically and restore a sense of purpose, hope and connection.

Today, Mark continues to lead, teach, innovate and ideate.
