Mark discusses his career journey in financial planning and wealth management, emphasizing the importance of serving others and creating value. He stresses the significance of focusing on passion, expertise, and serving a purpose.

Mark advocates for a "who not how" approach, prioritizing collaboration and surrounding oneself with smart, honest individuals.
