With more than 25 years of experience as an online entrepreneur, Mark has founded Real Entrepreneur, Blockenomics, BitBanx and the Music is Life Group .
Mark’s journey has been a series of twists and turns and a source of inspiration for others travelling on their own tumultuous journey. Mark’s life has consisted of both highs and lows. On one end, he saw his rise as a millionaire and on the other end, he saw his fall into bankruptcy.
When he was flying high, he operated more than 32,000 websites and lived a lavish life in the Bahamas with his then wife and son. As an entrepreneur, risk was in its title. His risk: increase his business in 2002. Unfortunately for him, the risk didn’t pay out.
They say not to kick a man when he is down, but for Mark, it was the complete opposite. It started with him going bankrupt, moving back to the UK, marital break-up, and prison sentence. When he got out of prison, depression sunk its ugly claws into him.
He sought help for his mental illness, but he really credits music as his saviour in the darkest hours of his life. Music helped him get back out there and snap out of depression. He now wants to help others now. He launched Music Is Life, a non-profit organisation, to help people break the cycle of mental illness.
Today, Mark is a successful entrepreneur who took the initiative to get better, reinvent himself and rebuild his internet business. He is an acclaimed publisher, marketer and public speaker. He has travelled around the world, sharing his experience with audiences in the United Kingdom, Japan, Hong Kong, St. Maarten, and Spain.
He is a published author, having written two books, Rebel Entrepreneur: Porn, Paradise, Pot, and Prison in 2013 and The Crypto Starter Manual in 2018. He has two books being released in 2019: Blockenomics and Real Entrepreneur.
