From painting houses as a college student, to competing in 12 Ironman triathlons, to earning well over $1 billion in business, founding partner of CEO Coaching International and author of Make Big Happen, Mark Moses, takes us through his career as a serial entrepreneur.
[00:18:20] Mark Moses: Entrepreneur, Triathlete, Dad
Joining us in the bottom of the hour is founding partner of CEO Coaching International and author of Make Big Happen, Mark Moses. Moses takes us back to his early entrepreneurial days at Student Painters, a company he grew to 250 locations before selling at the age of 26. From there, Moses found success professionally in the mortgage industry, and personally as a prolific Ironman triathlete. No amount of boardroom victories could prepare Moses for harrowing times ahead: At the age of three, Moses’s son was diagnosed with a brain tumor and suffered surgery complications. Moses shares the highs and lows of his journey during these tumultuous years.
[00:27:19] Making Big Things Happen with Mark Moses
Inspired by the strength of his son during a battle with a brain tumor, Moses signed up for the Ironman triathlon with a mission to raise $100,000 for the Children’s Hospital of Orange County. Surpassing that initial goal, Moses and his network have raised well over a $500,000 for the hospital. Shifting focus to Moses’s current endeavor, we learn how the premier business coaches and serial entrepreneurs at CEO Coaching International are training more than 150 CEOs and entrepreneurs in 14 countries.
[00:33:21] A Marching Band and an Elephant Walk Into a Meeting . . .
Moses embodies the phrase “go big or go home.” On a mission to inspire his team to earn over $1 billion, Moses once rode into a company meeting on an elephant while a marching band blared. Soon, the elephant became a symbol for thinking big and even makes an appearance on Moses’s book, Make Big Happen: How To Live, Work, and Give Big. From motivational leadership strategies to identifying measurable activities and essential objectives, Moses boils down his strategy for running a successful business. Listen to learn more.
