This was a very interesting speech because Mark has had a very diverse back round. He’s worked with Stephan King and he had interviewed a massive amount of very influential people. Mark seems like he really understands what it takes to succeed in our society. His ideas toward integrity and honesty struck a cord because I understood that he was being totally truthful. I respect that he was honestly admitting what he thought would be most effective to succeed. He seemed like he was a little bit behind the times because he was raised with analog, he prefers it but that did not really bother me. I think his most important message was that with determination, anyone can succeed.
