The Future of Entrepreneurial/Enlightened Leadership
Visionary Leadership Beyond the Top

Mark Victor Hansen looks at leadership as having the unwavering ability to not look at the world as it is, but as it can be. Leadership is about discovering what is inevitable, transformative, and in alignment with all the resources; and using them to prosper greatly now.

The wisest man of all time, Solomon said: “Without vision people perish,” Mark says: “With vision people, companies, and associations flourish, grow, expand and vastly improve immediately!” Mark enlightens his audience about achieving the qualities of limitless vision to achieve their ultimate potential, creating practical, measurable progress by elevating everyone’s successes.

Mark understands from leading his own empires, that the gold standard of leadership is leaders that consistently and effectively re-invent themselves and their organizations. He inspires everyone to fulfill their destiny and fully utilize their potential, starting by overcoming all obstacles, challenges, and resistance. One must master the fine art of self-leadership, so they can lead all others. Mark discusses the principles that work and are time tested and those that don’t work in business and in life. Attendees quickly take ownership and mastery of the four great principles of leadership. He will show that all great leaders are focused. They are insistent, consistent, and persistently passionate and purposeful. Mark has proven to audiences worldwide, that every person can foster and embrace a magnificent obsession to achieve beyond their limitations, no matter what.

Bringing America Back
Rekindling Her Greatness Through Personal Greatness

America’s success depends on your success. A successful country starts with independent, successful individuals who are groomed and inspired to lead. Success is organizing, prioritizing, and orchestrating macro to micro-goals and accomplishments. We must recognize our role individually and collectively to serve greatly the total world population of seven billion.

The business of America is business. With massive innovation and marketing we can, again, create a super strong economy. Mark delivers seven principles to get America going and keep it going. As Mark has traveled around the world, he has found everyone, everywhere wants to sell into our market, yet American’s are here are under-served and can easily and profitably sold to. Mark will make what is invisible—visible—that which is hidden in plain sight. He brings to audiences the ultimate roadmap to the riches and potential that can be had achieved by focusing on the proper principles. He shows how to do that right here and right now; in the most affluent country in the world, America.

Selling Yourself Rich
The Art of Creating Lifelong Clients and Sustainable Profits

Mark teaches that selling in today’s world requires a completely new understanding if you’re going to do it successfully. Raving buyers are the lifeblood of sales. Sales are the lifeblood of business and the lifeblood of America. Every relationship depends on a successful “sale” of ideas/information, values, services, benefits, or products.

Mark discusses how to create a gush of abundance through mastering the art of the sale, including the complete effective sales process:

  • Mastering the comprehensive awareness of leading edge thinking.
  • Growing your fanbase through niche marketing.
  • Becoming super connected.
  • Delivering two minute irresistible presentations.
  • Creating and keeping raving prestigious customer.

He shows you how to have clients that become lifelong friends/ supporters that only recommend and refer you and your company.

Mark teaches the techniques for turning problems into profitable solutions, and transforming objections into testimonials.

Selling isn’t about hawking your products, but instead about creating relationship equity with people who will joyfully be a dedicated fan and user of your products for a lifetime. This experience with Mark will elevate your thinking and techniques in sales to levels you couldn’t have imagined were possible.

Social Entrepreneurship
Building Enterprises that Expand Humanity’s Potential and Your Businesses’ Global Footprint.

Mark teaches that Social Entrepreneurship starts with the idea of doing business, which creates more than enough for everyone by building enterprises, dedicated to doing just that. Nobel Prize Winner, Dr. Yunus invented Social Enterprise and Entrepreneurship with Micro-Credit and Micro-Finance. Mark has expanded it to be useful to every business, company, and association to vastly multiply its respective effectiveness and imprint on the world.

With Mark’s vast experience working with audiences and people around the world, he believes that everyone has a soul level need to contribute and give back; thus, creating legacy wealth and a heritage worthy of remembering. Whatever is given comes back multiplied, magnified, and magnetized. He teaches that social entrepreneurship signals the imperative to drive social change, and it is that potential payoff, with its lasting, transformational benefit to society, that sets the field and its practitioners apart, opening gateways to a much bigger global presence for every business.

Like most entrepreneurial endeavors, social enterprises start with an innovative idea that has the potential to solve a community or societal problem. Mark teaches that as we create more abundance, more individuals will be willing to take on the risk and effort to create positive changes in society through their initiatives.

Social Enterprise is the gift that truly keeps giving.
