If you’re looking to connect with Mark or simply ‘pick his brain,’ you’ll find what you’re looking for here.

I get asked a lot by many people if they can ‘pick my brain.’

Grab a coffee, do lunch, connect on a phone or Zoom call, etc. Twenty minutes here, 30 minutes there. You know the drill.

Every fibre of my being wants to say “YES” – after all, I’m in the business of helping people connect. And I am deeply aware of and grateful for the many powerful connections I have formed in a career that spans 30+ years.

In practice though, I simply do not have the time to satisfy all of these requests. Evidently, I am not superhuman.

In an effort to respect my commitment to playmeo members and a busy calendar, I often have to say no. It’s never personal, I simply can not manage it all.

Here’s the good news…

I’ve developed a number of resources that respect and leverage your time and mine. Scroll down this page to browse all of the ways I can help you.

Thanks for reaching out.
