"Glow in the Dark is a transformative guide to becoming--and broadcasting--your authentic self in order to connect with your audience, build your business, and actually enjoy the process. With wit, warmth, and the benefit of his own considerable experience and success, Mark will convince you why

your personal story is important, and show you how to tell it. He is a gem, and this book is gold."

- Sarah Knight, New York Times bestselling author of the No F**ks Given Guides

When you talk about yourself and the work you do, what message do you convey? Do you tell your best story and show your most authentic self, or do you undersell your talents and fail to sell your strengths? Too many of us feel like imposters, playing down our achievements, failing to do our brilliant ideas justice. Many of us are simply too afraid of what people might think or say if we showed up as our authentic selves in public and shared our true stories.

Countless brilliant ideas will never see the light of day because people are too timid to truly be themselves.

It doesn't have to be this way. This book will help you get comfortable with being yourself in public, accept who you are, and celebrate every part of you and your story - even the scary bits.

No matter where you are on life's journey, no matter what your experience or background, you can learn a simple framework to turn your myriad of experiences into a powerful, engaging, and clear origin story that people will connect with, remember, and want to share with others on your behalf.

From hiding your talents to glowing in the dark, this book will help you tell your story with confidence.
