Hello.
I'm Mark Sylvester.


My favorite day is one spent working on interesting problems and finding creative ways to solve them visually.

Feeling overwhelmed by the scope of a great challenge?

No problem. I’ve developed a 5-step recipe that allows you to own the outcome. I call it “See what you Think.” I debuted this recipe at TEDxFargo.

HOW WE'LL WORK TOGETHER


 

Years ago I abandoned the idea of putting values up for all to see. Instead, I call them Observable Behaviors and reflect each week to see if I can find an example of how they'd been put into practice. Do you have values that you can see in action? These are mine:


Solve problems visually.


Cultivate emotional intelligence.


Stay curious. Forever.


Show up. Be present. Listen loudly.


Make every moment memorable.

 
  • Before working with Mark my business wasn’t a business, it was a disorganized mess. I’d wake up, decide what was easiest to do on my immediate list and do that. My business was going nowhere without the road map Mark helped me create, I actually didn’t even know where to begin and was completely overwhelmed by the process. Last month I brought in over $20,000 as a solo coach. This time last year I was averaging $600 a month. I don’t have a lot more to say other than the proof is in the paycheck.

  • Mark has been a trusted mentor, advisor and partner for many years. Recently, we decided to launch a podcast series, Mark was instrumental in architecting the design and execution of the entire production. Marc also created our podcast roadmap, which candidly was the hardest thing for us to do – knowing where to start.

These days everyone wants a one-click solution to life. We want someone else to solve our problems. Guess what? When you decide to own the problem, you will reach your goals. I can help.

Recipes

Because of my background as a chef, I think about problems as recipes. They have steps, a beginning, middle and end, and a list of ingredients. Recipes are predictable, repeatable and a wonderfully creative playground.
