Mark knows a thing or two about sales and mindset, after enduring nearly 20 years of physical and mental abuse Mark dropped out of school with no qualifications and got a job in a local supermarket packing customers shopping, five years later he was the store manager!
Wanting more of a challenge he got into the world of selling, he started with 19 other recruits as a commission only life insurance salesman and by month 11 he was the only one left, after a few years of mediocre performance Mark made a decision, if he was going to remain in the business then he was going to be one of the best, he traveled all over the world and devoured every book there was on selling but nothing improved until he made a startling discovery, everything that he had read or listened to sounded good but didn’t work! Why? Because the people speaking and teaching for the most part either had never sold or hadn’t sold anything for years.

Mark then embarked on a mission to learn how the real successes did it and spent considerable time tracking down the worlds top salespeople and asking them to be his mentors, whether it was his youthful expectation or his determination that got them to agree we will never know but the rest as they say is history.

Marks mentors were THE two top salespeople in the world at the time, Joe Gandolfo who personally sold more life insurance in a year than 1500 of the 1800 insurance companies in America, and Ben Feldman, the quietly spoken Million Dollar Round Table member who was recognised as the top life insurance salesman in the world.

Within 17 months Mark had qualified in the top 1% of salespeople in the world.
With his success in sales Mark was getting asked to speak more and more to share his story of sales success, but something emerged that made the audience realise that sales skills were only at best, half of the story, it was mindset that was the key to long term success in any field, and Marks extreme early life challenges had prepared him well for a life in selling.

Now Mark travels the world teaching individuals and groups including Fortune 500 and FTSE 100 companies how to succeed with not only his world class infield sales skills but also how to create a winning mindset for success in life and business.

The power of Marks mindset was never put to the test in a more powerful way than when he faced the challenge nobody wants to face, the challenge of beating cancer!
Mark endured 6 months of the strongest chemotherapy including the dreaded intrathecal chemotherapy which had to be injected into his spine to prevent the cancer spreading to his brain as he had blood cancer, a treatment so strong that three nurses have to accompany the treatment to the room and are not permitted to put it down until it has to be administered and nothing can be made in the laboratory at the same time! And if you move within two hours of this spinally administered chemotherapy two weeks of blinding headaches follow which no medication can fix.

The hospital was so amazed at how Mark handled the treatment that they would send patients to him to help them feel better, sometimes there would be several patients sitting around Mark while he was receiving his chemotherapy and he would teach them how to perceive what was happening to them and how to mentally prepare for the fight.

One time while a group of several people were sitting around Marks chemo chair and the nurse who was administering one of the very large chemotherapy syringes which was filled with red liquid, casually mentioned, “This is the one that can damage your heart!”
The patients around Marks chair looked at him in horror, Mark looked at the nurse and simply replied “But not this heart” and smiled at the other patients!

So if you want a speaker or personal mentor that has actually achieved massive success in sales and has had one of the biggest challenges ever placed on his mindset and physical well being, make Mark Baker your next choice, we guarantee you wont be any less than delighted that you did.
