Published by Random House Publishing, he has co-authored this book with Robert G. Allen (best-selling author of Multiple Streams of Income series and Creating Wealth).
Mark's energy and exuberance travels still further through mediums such as television (Oprah, CNN and The Today Show), print (TIME, US News & World Report, USA Today, The New York Times and Entrepreneur) and countless radio and newspaper interviews as he assures our planet's people that "you can easily create the life you deserve."
