Mark Silverman is a speaker, leadership coach, and the Amazon #1 best selling author of Only 10s: Using Distraction to Get the Right Things Done and the upcoming book, Mastering Midlife: How to Thrive When the World Asks the Most of You. He is also the host of the Mastering Midlife podcast, where he speaks with high-performance leaders of all walks of life and discuss their secrets for mastering the stress, burnout, and hardships they have faced throughout their life and career. Prior to becoming the resiliency expert that he is today, Mark built a successful 15-year career at fast-moving, fast-growing companies in the tech world where he generated over 90 million dollars in sales and garnered numerous awards.
Mark joins me today to share his journey from using drugs at the age of 13 and being homeless to getting sober and building a successful career. He defines what Only 10 means and discusses what inspired him to write his book. He shares his morning routine and describes how meditating consistently over the years has benefitted him. He shares his writing process, how accountability partners help him get things done, and his advice for creatives and artists. He also explores how he was able to figure out who he is, his soul’s purpose, and what he wants to achieve in the world.
“That’s where midlife comes in: it’s unsustainable to be successful from fear. Success needs to come from something authentic and organic.” – Mark J. Silverman
