How your ESSENCE is your MARKETING

How your ESSENCE is your MARKETING


“But no one knows who I am…so why would they ever hire me?”

Mark here and that is one of the most painful questions you’re telling yourself. I know because Shannon and I said that to ourselves when we first started out too.

In fact, one time when we talking about how much to charge for our high-end program, I said to Shannon, “But no one knows who we are or our credibility, why would they ever hire us?”

And then, with quite possibly the best answer to any question I’ve ever asked, Shannon looked at me straight in the eye and warmly said:

“But now they do”

Do you know WHY that answer is so powerful and so true? Because the hallucination of “no one knows who I am” is not a question your Tribe is asking themselves. That’s only a question we ask ourselves in a state of fear (and not love).

The only question your Tribe is asking is, “Can you help me?” And they don’t need a ‘wikipedia transformation’ – they need a personal guide to facilitate their transformation – someone they trust, relate to and believe can provide the transformation. Someone who is YOU.

Your Tribe wants YOU. They’re attracted to your essence – not if they’ve heard of you or not. Show your essence – and let them know you CAN provide the transformation. That’s what your Tribe craves the most.


So let us know – what’s YOUR essence you need to share more of with your Tribe?


Let us know in the comments below my friend. We’re here for you!

Isolated? Then Get In Bed With THIS

Isolated? Then Get In Bed With THIS


Shannon here with the most inspiring thing you can do to light your butt on fire with massive action.

And it’s not what you think – because it’s not at all about you.

You see, we’re always getting asked how our Big Impact University students get such ridiculously amazing results, so quickly.

Many going from painful debt to $20,000 months – and some even 6 Figures in less than 6 months.

While we give our clients the most kick ass and practical strategies and systems – there’s a secret weapon we’ve never spoken about before.

And the reason I want to share this with you today is because I want you to share your message in a much bigger way.

It’s time you got paid what you deserve and what you dream about. It’s time you landed client and after client….who love and adore you and pay you in full. It’s time you spoke on more stages and took more vacations. It’s time you made a BIGGER impact with YOUR message – and here’s your secret light-switch:


Get in a Mastermind.


We encourage our Big Impact University students to create small masterminds- groups of 4-5. Where everyone is safe to be vulnerable, honest, direct and celebrate small wins with each other. So if you’re feeling isolated – you HAVE to get in a Mastermind. There’s a collective power in a small group of like minded souls that is priceless.

Here’s a taste how our high end clients celebrate their wins together:

Is that something you’d like to get started in? We’re happy to let you know how you can create your own Mastermind and see if Big Impact University is right for you.

Email and ask for a Complimentary Speaker Breakthrough Session (valued at $495) to light YOUR butt on fire with life changing results like Kim & Sarah!

Overwhelmed? Use this ‘G-Spot’ trick

Overwhelmed? Use this ‘G-Spot’ trick



She was overwhelmed staring at the pile of painful bills waiting to be opened on her kitchen table.


She was exhausted, had enough and needed a change. Her debt, overdue bills and desire for abundance was starting to feel like a constant heart burn.


Which is why my ‘G-Spot’ strategy was the perfect solution when she joined Big Impact University.  She used it – and within a few weeks landed enough clients to practically light her pile of bills on fire.


Here’s My Secret G-Spot Strategy


The ‘G-Spot’ means ‘Goal-Spot’. It’s something you already know – that wherever you focus your mind, your energy follows. The stronger the focus, the stronger the energy.


So guess what you start to feel when you’re staring at a pile of bills? The energy of debt – and that is NOT serving you. Which means, all you need to do is to change your focus to something that WILL serve you.


A small, specific but wonderfully exciting goal. For her – it was being able to hire a personal assistant to do her shopping, clean her home and do her dry cleaning. (And by the way – it’s not something reserved just for Tony Robbins – hiring a personal assistant is way more affordable than you think).


Guess what energy showed up for her when she just MENTIONED that G-Spot? She was so excited, she couldn’t help it. And that’s the energy that fueled her ability to land clients into her 6 month high end program. HOT!


I need to emphasize how the G-Spot is not a huge goal out in the distance. Like buying an island in the pacific or speaking in front of 3,000 people or flying private – because that cannot happen in just a few weeks. But being able to hire a personal assistant? Using our system – absolutely, that is totally doable within a few weeks.


So let us know:


What Is Your G-Spot To Fuel You Into Empowered Action?


The more the Tribe shares in the comments below, the more people will shift their overwhelm into HOT G-Spot action. So share your G-Spot below and rock someone’s world.

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!”


– Linell King,

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!

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

How to overcome SELF DOUBT & FEAR

How to overcome SELF DOUBT & FEAR


It seems as if the programming that we’ve received as children, young adults and even as older adults can keep us stuck in a certain way of being. It’s our programming that keeps us from speaking on more stages. And it’s that same programming that runs our blood pressure sky high when we hear ourselves say, “Yes, my program is only $10,000 a month” (did you feel that rush too?)

It can be extremely painful and even agonizing when you see who you need to become to run a thriving business. You’re challenged with stepping into these new sets of beliefs, behaviors and changing the patterns that run you. You WANT to feel liberated and free around money, enrollments and making offers – but you’re just not sure HOW.

Mark here, and it’s time we change your programming. It’s time we change the programming that keeps you and your message stuck. So take a deep breathe with me, right now….good. Feel a little more relaxed? Fantastic – because this 4 step process will finally turn your problem based mindset to belief based thinking. Let’s go…


1. Let Go of ‘Planning’


 The healed mind does not plan. Yes, we still have to make reservations and accomplish our ‘to-do lists’ – but we cannot focus on them to the extent of limiting greater opportunity from manifesting. We cannot prevent a miracle from showing up. The way to do that is to embrace the space of letting go. Even when you’re in ‘focus mode’ and ‘getting things done’ – embrace an inner space of letting go and allowing any kind of miracle to come your way.

This is the space when you’re suddenly invited to speak on someone’s stage. Or a client who said now is asking you if there’s still room in your program? Or if an all expense paid trip shows up out of nowhere.

These are examples of miracles arriving when we get out of our mind.


2. Notice Where a Pattern Begins & Ends


Most people don’t notice when a pattern begins, and they usually see it from the wrong vantage point. For example – let’s say you have a pattern of beating yourself up. In truth, the pattern isn’t beating yourself up – because that’s only one aspect of a pattern. Let’s say that first you get anxious feelings that lead to sabotaging behaviors which then lead to beating up behaviors. So really the pattern is not the beating-yourself-up part – that’s only where the pattern ends. This pattern begins with getting the anxious feelings. Which bring us to the next step.


3. Choose Empowering Beliefs


We all know this, but that doesn’t mean all practice it. As soon as you notice the beginning of a negative pattern (like feeling anxious) – pause it for a moment. Because the only reason it continues on a downward spiral (leading to beating yourself up) is because of the meaning you give it. So now, press pause when you feel anxious, notice it, lean into it and choose to give it an empowering meaning.

So if two potential clients just said no to your offer and you start to feel anxious how you’re going to pay this month’s pile of bills – choose the following empowering beliefs:

  • The more I hear ‘no’, the more I’m learning what I need to improve on to get ‘yesses’
  • I wasn’t meant to serve these clients and will focus on attracting even more ideal clients
  • Every great story starts with a challenge, so this is making my story even greater
  • God loves me, and this is a tailor made gift to help me manifest my Big Impact

Feel into how different you’re feeling NOW, just moments after feeling anxious. Notice that? Now it’s time to turn it into high gear:


4. Take 1 Empowered Action With This New Empowered Belief



Now it’s time to FEEL that new empowered belief, in your cells and in your veins – and take 1 action with it. Who is someone you can call? Maybe ask for a referral from a current client? Hire a new coach to help you craft a better message? Whatever it is – take 1 empowered action.

This way, you take a belief and turn it into an action. You take your desire and start to manifest it’s potential.

You can change your belief sets. When you foster the belief that you can change your beliefs with the love of God. By shifting from a problem based mindset to a miracle based thinking.

Choose your higher self to be consistent in this practice. Soon enough, you’ll turn every single one of your problems into their own unique miracle. Isn’t that HOT?!

why enrollment is sacred -




Have you ever wondered why you’re having an enrollment conversation with a potential client, and you thought, “Why aren’t they saying YES??!?” Mark here, and today I’m going to reveal to you the ‘inner game truth’ why sometimes your Tribe says YES and sometimes, painfully they say NO to your offer. And it boils down to a deep secret from a Course in Miracles:




A Course in Miracles shows us that we are both student and teacher in the relationships in our lives. So at any point in time when someone comes into our lives, we have a lot to learn from them, and we can serve them by teaching them.

This is no more evident and powerful than in the enrollment conversation. The enrollment conversation is an opportunity for you to determine the wants, needs and desires of your ideal client.

To find out what’s holding them back and to give them an opportunity to say yes. To step into something new and change their lives. In essence, to create a miracle with them. Notice I say, “with them” not “for them”. This is the essence of a holy relationship. Where we have this beautiful dance of teacher and student.

What often happens in the enrollment conversation is so much of what needs to be healed within us comes up. So much of our money sh**t comes up – even when we thought we ‘had it under control’.

The secret is that these enrollment conversations are sent as angels to us, showing what we need to heal. Teaching us what healing we need around money, business and influence. The more ‘no’s we get, the more painful that feels – the more we’re taught what skills we need to strengthen inside of ourselves.

Because we’re also angels to them. They’ve come to us with some challenge that we ARE able to help them transcend and transform. So the more we learn from our angels, the more we’ll turn into angels of incredible healing capacities. Where through these enrollment conversations, our ultimate purpose is beginning to manifest.

So let me know my friend:


What’s 1 ACTION STEP You Can Take To Hold Your Enrollment As SACRED?


Because when you do, you’ll see powerful transformations in your clients – and inside of you. Embody this truth, that relationships are assignments, and empower yourself to get more of them this week.

In your corner and by your side,

Mark and Shannon

What To SAY When SPEAKING On Stage

What To SAY When SPEAKING On Stage


Speaking is the new marketing. Meaning, the only way to increase the impact your message has is by speaking. So what do you say once you’re on stage? How do you get ready? How do you align your message with your Tribe in a way where they are energetically drawn to you?

Shannon here with a DEEP truth on how to rock your talk.  Take a moment, connect to Source and breathe this in with me:


You must attach your ESSENCE to your MESSAGE


Your essence is your unique expression of the divine that’s within you. And the only way to attach your essence with your message is by shifting your perception.

A Course in Miracles tells us that a shift in perception IS a miracle. So our work is to consistently change our perception (or at least be open to the Universe doing it for you!)

That starts by not being so hard on ourselves. We need to start seeing ourselves as The Divine sees us. As perfect without flaw, a precious child who God loves.

Life works to the degree that we live in alignment with the laws of the Universe. And the Universe is invested in growth and abundance. So everytime we beat ourselves up, we step out of our essence and go against the laws of the Universe.

But when we begin to see ourselves how God sees us, how Source see us – we begin to say something on stage that touches the hearts of our audience.  We begin to speak to THEIR essence. And nothing is more powerful on this earth than speaking to someone’s essence. And it begins by attaching YOUR essence to YOUR message. And then, miracles occur.

My friend, let us know:


What is Divinely UNIQUE About YOU?
