  • check-circleStrategies to have bigger, more lasting results from the work you do
  • check-circleGreater clarity and confidence about the life and work you were put on earth to do
  • check-circleHelp to live and work with a deep sense of calm, even in the midst of stressful situations

Stress and Anxiety are the Epidemic of our time,

and the problem is multi-faceted…

If it were easy, you’d have figured it out by now. The problems of stress and anxiety are complex and run deep: If only they could be fixed with massages or pills! As much as self-nurture and neuro-chemical interventions can help, the relief they offer is often temporary, and simply masks the symptoms of deeper issues …

Something is not working about how we’re living our lives. 

In our jobs, we feel the pressure of ever-increasing demands. Our personal and family lives are busier than ever. The task of parenting seems to get more complicated and stressful with every generation. If you’re involved in church activities, community service, or activism, you also know the challenge of balancing work and family responsibilities with your desire to make a difference in this added role.

And so we  get overwhelmed. We feel stressed out. We struggle with anxiety. 

But that’s not all. In the midst of the stress and anxiety, many of us also feel a nagging sense of discontent. We are too busy, but not fulfilled enough.

“If we are not doing what we are best equipped to do,

or doing well what we have undertaken

as our personal contribution to the world’s work,

at least by way of an earnestly followed avocation, 

there will be a core of unhappiness in our lives which will be

more and more difficult to ignore as the years pass.– Dorothea Brande

Part of our anxiety and frustration comes from the sense that what we’re investing our lives into doesn’t really matter that much. We get frustrated with ourselves, because we spend so much energy and time in our work — and get so stressed out by it — but also feel like it’s not all that important in the ultimate scheme of things.

What can we do about this?

The Thriving Leader Blueprint will help you

in  the following ways:

Reduce Your Anxiety

Stop worrying about what might or might not happen, and what other people might be thinking. Overcome your anxiety about problems that you’re facing.

Get More Clarity

Get clear about what matters most to you, and what you’re here to do. Put an end to worrying about whether you’re doing the right things.

Find a Deeper Spiritual Connection

Feel confident about the direction your life is going. Learn to discern guidance from God as it manifests in an internal “knowing” (as opposed to trying to hear an external voice).

“Over the years, the stress had accumulated …

“Over the years in my life, the stress of an intense (but rewarding) work role, being a wife, and trying to raise young kids has accumulated, so much so that it’s affected my health. I’ve seen cardiologists about heart palpitations and had numerous procedures to investigate the problem, but the tests weren’t conclusive in a way that led to much change.In spite of always feeling like there isn’t any time, it’s been really important to make the time and space for this program, and the practices it helps you build. This program has been a game changer for me! I learned new ways of living with the tension between “multiple missions” in life. I got help implementing new spiritual practices — not doing them because I’m “supposed to,” but seeing them as means to help me stay calm and strong in the midst of a busy life.

It’s been a number of months since I finished the Thriving Leader Blueprint program, and I just had my annual check-up. The doctor asked me what I’ve been doing differently, because the symptoms I had been dealing with are now largely gone! The combination of insights and practices gained from the Thriving Leader Blueprint have brought about a huge — and important — change in my life, even bringing about a profound physical healing”

“I was feeling burnt out I needed to find some balance and focus in life”

“When I joined Thriving Leader Blueprint, I was feeling pretty burnt out in my work, and had just come out of a leadership position in a church that was really challenging. In the midst of this, I got moved into a new leadership position at the hospital. When I heard the idea of “leaving your mark without losing your mind” as part of the promise of this program … I was thinking “I’m not really sure I know how to do that!” I was really wanting to find some kind of balance in my life.I really liked the flexibility of the program … being able to do the modules on my own time, and doing the coaching in conference calls meant that I could do them from home, or some other place if I was traveling. For me the most helpful thing was getting clear on my vision and mission for my life. I hadn’t really thought too much about this, and the program really helped me focus on my sense of “calling” in life, which was really helpful.”

– Rebecca D (Physician)

The Thriving Leader Blueprint is a

personal growth program to equip you

to get clarity about your purpose in life,

and to live that out with more success

and less stress.

“It’s not just for people who hold formal positions of leadership”

The coaching calls with Mark will be on a conference call bridge line.


The teaching, group support, and coaching work together to stretch your thinking and

Building Your Life on a Solid Foundation


If you order the Thriving Leader Blueprint program now, you’ll also get …

Building Your Life on a Solid Foundation

Building your life on a Solid Foundation is an invitation to connect more deeply to God. It helps you establish — or build on — practices that grow your spiritual life. In the program you’ll get:

  • A journal to write in that will guide you in a daily practice of connecting with God
  • Six messages to guide you in thinking differently about how to connect with God
  • Practical exercises that will help you tune in to sense God’s guidance
  • Teaching about how to discern the promptings from the Holy Spirit from the ideas and desires of our own ego / false self

This program will offer a way to develop a spiritual connection, if you struggle in that area … and if you already have an established spiritual practice, it will give you new ideas and encouragement in how to strengthen it.

“My life felt outrageously demanding and out of control …”

“When I joined the program, so many things were going on in my life : a very demanding career, busy family life, a side business that involves lots of travel, and supporting my wife with a business of her own.  My life felt dangerously demanding and out of control. I was looking for help to know how to focus my time and energy, and not get taken away by the stress of it all.”The program really helped me see things in a new light. It helped me get more a more simple focus to how I approach my life, and this really helped me work through the chaos that has come up with trying to juggle all these things. It’s evident that Mark has read and studied widely, and I really appreciated how he brought in wisdom from a variety of sources, be they from the Bible, other religious traditions, business, or science. It expanded my thinking and helped me see things in different ways.”

– Paul K (Bioenergy Consultant and Engineer)

“After 20 years in my career, I needed help redefining what my mission is, and why I’m doing it

“I joined Thriving Leader Blueprint because I was feeling a lot of stress at work. After 20 years doing social work, I felt like I needed some help in redefining what my mission is — what my purpose is — and how to keep going with it. There were a lot of things I took away from the program that were really practical, that I’ve been able to apply in situations when I was feeling stressed. It’s given me a focus and a vision for moving forward in the work I do.”

– Sheri D (Public School Social Worker)

“I was stressed and unfocused and struggling with a multitude of roles…”

“I joined the program because I was stressed and unfocused and struggling with a multitude of roles — working, being a wife, being a mom, and being involved in my daughter’s school. She’s now at an age where it’s time for me to figure out my next steps in life — what my purpose (or purposes) are moving forward. It’s probably not in my current job.”I took a lot from the module that focused on setting up strategies for self-care. I got reminders — and also some new ideas — about boundaries I need to work on both at work and with my family. Also, the teaching about living in tension, rather than trying to find the perfect balance, has been very helpful and freeing for me!”
