The Best Answer To: “Is This What I’m Supposed To Be Doing?”

The Best Answer To: “Is This What I’m Supposed To Be Doing?”


Here’s the hardest question Mark and I get asked:

“Is this what I’m SUPPOSED to be doing?”

After all – God knows how many amazing things you COULD be doing. You’re filled with so much talent, you have so many ideas and you know you have SO much to give to the world.

So is what you’re doing right now, really what you’re supposed to be doing? Shannon here with the best answer to that haunting question.

Before I give you the juicy answer, you have to first understand this deep truth about asking yourself questions in general.

Whenever you ask yourself a question – you’ll answer it. No matter if it’s a dis-empowering question or an empowering question – your mind will start looking for answers.

Which is why you’re having such a hard time answering “Is this what I’m supposed to be doing?” – do you know why? Because this is exactly what your mind does the second you ask it:


“Is this what I’m SUPPOSED to be doing?”

“Well, let’s look at all the things you COULD be doing and then see if it is.”


Right? As soon as you ask the question, you start to look at all the things you could be doing!

Now – let me give you the best answer to this question (so you don’t suffer from overwhelm anymore).

The next time your mind asks you, “Is this what I’m SUPPOSED to be doing?” – change this to a MORE Empowering Question:

How could I serve more people with what I’m doing?

How could I leverage my time more?

How could I make a BIGGER difference?


By asking yourself BETTER Questions… you’ll actually get BETTER ANSWERS!


By using this, you turn ‘uncertainty’ into ‘absolute certainty’ through the frame of purposeful GIVING.  It allows your mind to get RESOURCEFUL and focus on what’s working instead of searching for evidence of what’s NOT working.


So let me know – what’s a MORE Empowering question YOU could ask yourself?

Why you’re too hard on yourself

Why you’re too hard on yourself


The frustration in not having enough clients…

Or getting the kind of speaking gigs you dream of…

Or enough money at the end of the month…

Has nothing to do with clients, speaking or your income.

But that feeling of frustration is preventing you from enrolling more clients, getting more speaking gigs and enjoying the abundance you deserve.

Mark here – with a deep truth that can change the course of your life.

And I mean it. If you land with me for a moment and tune into the truth I’m about to share with you – you’ll see how it can transform you.

1000% here? Alright – here’s the backstory my friend.




Shannon and I started Big Impact 3 months after we met.  It started when I saw this incredible light in Shannon – and I knew not enough people even knew about her! Shannon felt the same about me – and we knew we had BIG things to do in this world.

You KNOW that feeling, right? Like a volcano of divine greatness burning with a fiery love, just waiting to erupt and explode. You’re probably feeling a lot of that kind of burning in you recently, right?

Well – Shannon and I felt exactly like you are. And with the most awesome fire, we started. We held a meetup.

In the marketing, scheduling and planning of the meetup – do you know what we were envisioning? We were envisioning thousands of people there. We envisioned how it went on for days. We envisioned how people would be crying their eyes out, laughing their heads off, paying us an enormous amount of money and Buddha himself giving us a standing ovation.

At our first meetup – there weren’t thousands, it didn’t go on for days, no one cried – but yes, we did get a few laughs. There were only a few people there.

Shannon said to me how she envisioned having way more people there. And how we didn’t make nearly enough money. And is this really what we should be doing?

I heard her – because I felt the same. But I decided that I wouldn’t run that pattern again. I wouldn’t do it. Because I knew it was that pattern that would prevent more people from coming.

I told Shannon, “Babe – this was hot. Let’s enjoy what we did do – and hold that vision of more. But let’s promise each other that we’ll never beat ourselves up. No matter what – we cannot be hard on ourselves. Because if we are – we won’t attract what we want.”

Shannon didn’t say a word. She let out a deep sigh, stared deep into my eyes – and said with pure alignment, “Okay babe, you’re right.  We’ll celebrate every little success we have.”




If there’s anything keeping your clients from enrolling – it’s the conversation you have with yourself after someone says NO. If there’s anything from promoters not booking you – it’s how you beat yourself up after they say they already have enough speakers.

And my friend – money can’t come to you if you’re busy beating yourself up.  So here’s the truth I want you to hear, feel and inject into your veins:

Never Beat Yourself Up Ever Again. Look At Yourself How God Sees You – Perfect, Whole & Complete

The entire Tribe would gain a TON from you if you’d share this with us below:


In What Way Are You Hard On Yourself?


We’re all in this together my friend and this is a safe place to be a bit vulnerable. Trust me – it takes quite a bit of vulnerability to share that story with you. And it’s true. So share with me, Shannon and the Tribe how are YOU being hard on yourself?  The more we share – the more we can learn, grow and give our greatest impact to the world.

Meet 3 Messengers Who Became (6 Figure) Rock Stars

Meet 3 Messengers Who Became (6 Figure) Rock Stars


After the response we got last week from sharing with you just 3 of our new
Big Impact Rock Stars – we decided to share with you 3 more!

Together, we’re making a real ripple effect. Because we’re not only turning messengers into Rock Stars – but these Change Agent Rock Stars are saving people’s lives… their health, their relationships and oh yes, their sex life too!

So please listen to the 3 stories below. Like you, they had a burning message – and were facing a ton of obstacles trying to share it. Financial blocks, inner game blocks and all obstacles standing in front of their dreams. Read their stories, how they used the System we teach at Big Impact Live to turn their life, message and mission around, fast. HOT!

Meet Linell, who used our System to quit his J.O.B and earn $84,000.

Before Big Impact Live I was so frustrated. I had spent over $200K in coaching and I still didn’t have a system. I was doubting whether or not I was going to ever be able to leave medicine. I was waking up with anxiety every morning.


I had a lot of inner work training with Tony Robbins and Christian Michaelson, but Mark & Shannon allowed me to accomplish the inner work with financial results. Which made it a whole lot easier!


I was able to quit my J.O.B to focus full time on my mission. The hidden blessing is that I was able to take off as much time as I needed to help my mom who had recently taken ill. I’ve made $84,000!”

Elisa was handling a lot of stress, debt and all that money sh**t. She said how Big Impact changed her life – and in under a month made $19,000 sharing her message:


“Before Big Impact Live I was broke, extremely stressed about money, feeling like a loser because I couldn’t figure out how to make enough money with my skills.


I spent the last 20 years doing inner game work to learn all about my life’s work. I’d finally gotten ready, and still, I didn’t know how to turn on the ‘engine’. Until Big Impact. Mark and Shannon, thank you for creating an outer game for conscious business owners that talks to my inner game.


Big Impact has changed my life. I finally have a way to make money consistently and quickly so that I can do my volunteer work as well as practices. I am so grateful. Thank you Mark and Shannon! In just 3 weeks I’ve already made $19,000!”

Dr. Robert & Dr. Patti are amazing ‘Sexperts’ – but their business was in chaos, overwhelm and barely profitable. See how they used our System to generate $200,000, travel the world and have hired an amazing staff to support their message:


Before Big Impact Live our business was in chaos, overwhelm, and doing all the minutia by ourselves with little profitability.


Thanks to you, we now ask for help, we’ve learned to surrender and create a work/life balance. We know when to say no instead of yes and to say yes instead of waffling. We’re feeling the vision and power to GO BIG!


Now we travel more to lead our international events, we’ve hired an amazing staff, feel more empowered, are better speakers, are doing business by the numbers and having fun!

We’ve made $200,000!


– Dr. Robert & Dr. Patti,

Meet Big Impact’s Newest Rock Stars

Meet Big Impact’s Newest Rock Stars


WOW, Big Impact Live was HOTTER than ever. People have been calling it a mix between a Rock Concert, a Tony Robbins event and a delicious retreat that deeply feeds the soul.  But the most IMPORTANT part is how the Tribe who attends – goes home with serious results.

Shannon here and today I’m going to introduce you to 3 Big Impact Rock Stars. Amazing beautiful people who turned their life and business around – in a matter of a few months of Big Impact University- our 6 month mentorship program.  So get ready to be amazed my friend.

And these Rock Stars are not just making an impact for their message – together, we’re all making a bigger impact with the combined ‘ripple effect’ in the Tribe.

In fact, in the last 3 Big Impact Live events alone, we’ve given over $15,000 to one of our favorite causes in the world: Optimum Health Institute. OHI helps people overcome all kinds of illnesses and debilitating diseases through holistic healing.  It’s where I first learned about detox, holistic health and nutrition over 15 years ago.

As a Tribe, we are literally changing and saving lives. Just look how our Rock Stars are making their Big Impact with their message:


Meet Sarah Reilly who went from real debt to earning $33,090 in one month teaching her Tribe how to get their bodies more nourished. Here’s her story:

“I sat in the audience of Big Impact Live with $19 in my business bank account, stressed, struggling and overwhelmed in business and in life. I hadn’t slept more than 3-4 hours in 7 months.

And for the first time in 17 years, I can take a breath and breathe around my finances without the stress and worry of how I will ever pay my rent, monthly bills and pay off credit card debt from past medical bills… I took a leap and joined Big Impact University.

Since beginning, I have grossed $33,090, I can’t believe it!

– Sarah Reilly,



Meet Howard Sambol, who after spending decades just getting by – is now able to generate strategy sessions wherever he goes. Thanks to Big Impact University, he has earned over $75,959 helping Professional Women who want to launch or start their own business.

I spent decades just getting by, never realizing my true potential, always in struggle mode for new clients and never feeling secure and on solid ground.

Because of Big Impact University, the shifts I made are manyfold: Clarified optimum market niche, crafted a truly amazing package generating strong lean in, raised fees considerably thus creating a truly leveraged business model and transformed my public speaking profoundly so I can now attract clients and generate Strategy Sessions wherever I go.

I’ve also further refined my enrollment process to get an even higher conversion rate than ever before. I’ve made $75,959!”

– Howard Sambol,



Meet Antje who used Big Impact University to start earning $79,000 helping women to find their soulmate.

“Before Big Impact University, I was making 0 income with coaching because I didn’t know HOW.  I also wasn’t able to stand in my value. I was so busy pleasing people and being agreeable that I gave all my power away which was directly reflected in my bank account.

You taught me how to let go of being liked and instead to make it a priority to be respected. Which is now reflected in my bank account!

I had to overcome resistance to be successful and step into the knowing that I DESERVE to be successful and be an authority from which my clients learn from and listen to. By being an authority and respecting myself, I am now able to empower my women to do the exact same. It feels so amazing to know that my transformation is causing a ripple effect in my tribe.”

– Antje Boyd, Founder, CEO Attract Your Soulmate
