About Mark Andersen
As a successful entrepreneur who has co-founded and led rapidly growing organizations

I've spent the past thirteen years working in Internet marketing in San Francisco,
most recently as the VP of Marketing at Internet and mobile companies that are the
leaders in their space. That was also very rewarding work, but for years I've had
the desire to return to my roots and help people realize their full potential through

who work with a great career coach have an advantage as others are quickly discovering
and that's why career coaching has taken off in recent years. Many top CEOs work
with coaches, but for many professions coaching has been too expensive or too difficult
to figure out: "how do I find a great coach?", "what if I don't want to make a long-term
