Mark makes it very easy for all current and retired athletes to follow his guidance to transition into business. In fact, I’ve been using his strategies now to boost my current speaking business. You will see that Mark’s tips will benefit you not just now but for years to come.
— Theo Fleury, NHL All-Star - Olympian
“Mark asked me to join a panel discussion surrounding the transition from student-athlete to next steps, as I was a Division 1 women’s hockey player at Colgate University, and we played in the NCAA Championship Game in 2018. Over the course of a few calls he had transformed my LinkedIn profile to present my athletic mindset in a business-like manner, given me a much higher level of confidence when growing my network, and best of all, offered it in a way that made me feel at ease with his approach, all while sharing several laughs along the way. The advice that stood out was how the traits that I have developed as an athlete can be used to great advantage in any non-athletic setting. He was able to help me develop a more professional mindset in regards to my career path, and he was able to offer insightful suggestions on how to reach my current career goals. I strongly encourage all athletes, both current and retired, to reach out to Mark!”

“After over a decade of training and competing, I retired from sport in 2004 as an Olympian in rowing. Like many athletes, I found the transition into the working world to be quite challenging. Mark’s insightful methodology demystifies the process and makes it easy for any athlete to approach what is typically the very difficult transition from sport to career. Mark provides an easy to follow roadmap for helping athletes translate the characteristics that made them successful on the field to those that will make them successful in business. .”

“Mark has an impressive ability to connect with athletes from all backgrounds and he’s clearly passionate about helping others. I was fortunate to meet Mark at a time when I was unsure how to bridge the gap between my playing career and the next chapter in my life. Thanks to Mark’s continued coaching and guidance, I found my way. I’ve learned how to present my strengths and use my athletic background as a tool for succeeding in the job market.”

I recently decided to transition out of a senior executive position I held for 15 years without a job to move to...I originally thought ‘coaches’ were for someone else. After speaking with Mark, I began to recognize that his service was invaluable... I recently accepted an offer that originated from one of Mark’s strategies.

Mark’s experience as a career coach as well as working with current and former athletes helps him to highlight key emotions players face when leaving the game. The reality of all sports careers is that no matter how much money you make you’ll want to have a second career. Mark lays out in detail how to market yourself in a modern age, how to build a network, and how to turn your secondary passions and interests into jobs. I recently retired after an 11-year career as a professional hockey player and Mark’s advice couldn’t have come at a better time.

As a professional athlete, it isn’t an easy transition moving from something that you love and have done your whole life to starting all over and finding a new career in your mid 30’s. It is a challenge in so many ways. This is why I strongly recommend that every athlete, whether active or retired, take advantage of Mark’s immense knowledge and experience and go through his Career Coaching Program. His coaching is personalized, thorough, and gives you a plan on how to network in a smart and professional way.

What I value most is Mark’s ability to provide practical advice for mid-career job hunters and career changers.
