Economic & Market Outlook

Help in Navigating Life’s Most Important Transitions

What our clients say
Strategic Architect, Guide and Advisor … this is the language that I would use to describe the relationship that my wife and I have had with Mark over the past 12 years. He has challenged us to deeply analyze our ambition for our lives including our marriage, our family, our friends and our careers. Once we were grounded in that narrative, he has helped us navigate the journey through anticipating breakdowns and continual reflection during key inflection points in our lives (e.g., our child’s education, caring for our parents, preparing for aging physically, mentally and financially, etc.). He has helped us build a foundation of communication, listening and understanding that prepares you for the unknowns that life often throws at you. We are now living the life that we have designed as opposed to just letting life happen to us. I can honestly say that Mark has changed the course of our lives and we are deeply grateful.

The Brain That Changes Itselfby Norman Doidge
An astonishing new science called “neuroplasticity” is overthrowing the centuries-old notion that the human brain is immutable. In this revolutionary look at the brain, psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Norman Doidge, M.D., provides an introduction to both the brilliant scientists championing neuroplasticity and the people whose lives they’ve transformed. From stroke patients learning to speak again to the remarkable case of a woman born with half a brain that rewired itself to work as a whole, The Brain That Changes Itself will permanently alter the way we look at our brains, human nature, and human potential.
