Mark Silverman Rebelling FOR Reclaiming our Freedom

Powered by RedCircle

Mark Silverman – executive coach, speaker, and best-selling author of Only 10s 2.0: Confront Your To-Do List and Transform Your Life – is a true soul brother. When he was working for the fastest-growing startups in the corporate world, Mark was able to sell $90 million worth of products and led teams through multi-million dollar complex sales. After doing some deep, inner work and self-exploration, Mark found new freedom that he shares with others by creating Only 10s, a system of tools CEOs and business leaders use to overcome overwhelm and make the business and life they want.

Mark joins me today to reveal the keys that can help us get out of the prisons we have created for ourselves and reclaim our freedom in life. He shares his story of going from homelessness to sobriety and encountering the “cosmic bricks” that awakened him to his freedom. He describes the role of contemplation and self-exploration in determining the 10s in our lives and explains how we can distinguish the things that pretend to be 10s from the real ones. He also shares some exercises to help us reconnect with our inner self and highlights the impact of seizing our 10s.

“Midlife is the time where we can be the most free; it’s the time when we’re too tired to keep up the charades. It has its own consequences, but those consequences can land us to a better place.” – Mark Silverman
