“Mark delivered more insight and value in one hour than anyone I’ve ever met with or hired. I’ve done these drills many times with marketing folks who make big promises but give you stuff you already know. What makes Mark different is the amount of homework and analysis he did. He found details that I wasn’t even aware of. He was respectfully blunt and gave me positive steps forward. I was both motivated and equipped to begin taking control of my brand.”
