Inspiring and So Interesting

I love this pod! The variety of Mark’s guests and hearing the amazing stories keeps me coming back for more.
I’ve followed Mark because I’m originally from Seattle and attended RHS. I tuned in at first because I knew Mark would be influential in his career no matter what he did. The conversations and life stories are SO good and far beyond my expectations.
