143: Mark Minard: Elevating Beyond

We are all put on this earth for a reason, and that is to be the best YOU! Mark Minard is an Innovator and Elevator with a 2 word mission statement: Change Lives. Being in jail at age 17, Mark learned to elevate above the circumstances, becoming a CEO at age 26. Mark brings 10 years + of real, raw, in the trenches experience of winning in business, leadership, and finances, challenging you in all areas of life to go to the next level and beyond!

In today’s interview, Mark shares the story behind the story; how a Stephen King novel changed his life, and how he was able to beat the odds and start Dreamshine – a year-round Adult Day Support and Vocational Program in Ohio for people with special needs.  We also explore the lessons Mark has learned in business, leadership, and in overcoming both his inner battles and the external goliaths who tried to stop him from achieving his dream.
