I hesitated to release it since the world has changed so much since then. But then again, I realised that this episode was a celebration of all that you helped me achieve in 2019-2020. That's right, in this special bonus episode I share with you the the ups and downs of what has turned out to be quite the year thanks to your incredible help and support. Thank you, Mark x

Mark will change your life!

I discovered the episodes(back in Season 03) of ‘the Minimalists’ & ‘Sarah Knight’ and have have been an avid fan ever since. Mark takes the time to provide a FREE podcast with interesting and diverse people. People that I would never meet or would never have known if not for Mark. The format of the podcast plays to Marks strengths. He is a gifted speaker but an even better a listener, allowing each guest to tell their story. Each episode is an intimate and honest conversation that is insightful and entertaining. Well worth a listen.

Awesome Podcast!

Mark has such a lovely interviewing style which keeps you engaged. Incredible content and next level guests who always teach me something surprising. Would 100% recommend to anyone with a curious mind!

fashhhh ,

Always gives me value!!

It baffles me that I haven’t left a review of this show. Mark is an incredibly genuine person, always focused on getting you the most value every time he records. Even when I think “idk if this guest is someone I’d relate to” I always learn something new, and find a new person to follow / be inspired by that I never expected! His guests always go on to do amazing things so this podcast is a great way to stay ahead of the curve too 🙌🏻.
