I'm Mark, the guy behind the Mental Marketer.
Thank you for stopping by today.
I began this business several months ago.
I was once in Corporate America for 20 years, working hard at a career that I loved and hated at the same time.
I worked for a very well-respected Fortune 100 company that was consistently rewarded for being in the Top 10 Best Workplaces (Forbes) in the United States.
It was a lifelong dream of mine to work for a company like this.
Ever since I was a young boy growing up in the sometimes violent streets of a suburb in Los Angeles, California.
In the neighborhood where I was raised, there was not much prosperity to see as an example.
Most people lived at or below the poverty line and the hopes of having a better life wasn't something that I could envision.
I was given a slim chance to succeed and was told that my life would probably end either by a tragic death or lifetime incarceration.
I didn't want that life for myself and felt that in order for me to break the cycle I needed to get out of the environment that I found myself in.
So, after graduating High School I immediately joined the military.
Long story short, I went on to the military, then college, and after college I proceeded on the path to "happiness" in Corporate America.
You know, the dream that everyone is sold and usually buys.
My entire dream came crashing down when I was let go from this company abruptly recently...
As you can imagine I was filled with fear and doubt.
What was I going to do? I had bills to pay and a family to support.
Being in the Business world and Corporate America was all I knew.
Would I go back to Corporate America that I was familiar with, or would I pursue something that I'm more passionate about.
