Episode #12 – Mark Bowness

This episode is about building communities online, and overcoming obstacles to become a better you.

Most of you have heard of Calvin Wayman who was my first coach who I hired when I was in debt and on the verge of going bankrupt. But what you might not know is that I actually have 4 coaches/mentors at the moment. Each one in charge of a different aspect of my business.
Our guest today is my coach for building THIS tribe of Mindful & Ruthless, and for building and launching my own coaching program for creative entrepreneurs.

He is a coach and community master, and he’s on a mission to influence a BILLION lives.?

And he has ONE HELL of a story. A story of a situation I would not wish for anyone to have to go through. A situation that made him try to take his own life. And ofcourse the happy ending of a huge realization and taking action that came after.
In this episode we talk about hard times, how to think and act to overcome any obstacle,
and in general how to think and act in order to be the person we want to be in this world.

We also discuss building audience and influence, and our guest did indeed fire away some super practical tactics for starting a tribe of your own and growing it, specifically on Facebook groups as a community platform.

Hope you enjoy this as much as I did!

Ladies and gents, it’s my pleasure to present to you my coach and mentor… Mark Bowness.
