Mark Struczewski (stru – chess – key) is a productivity trainer and joins Kim to share with you how to be more productive both personally and professionally.

Hey there! I’m Mark Struczewski ~ Mister Productivity.

Born and raised in North Chili, New York (a western suburb of Rochester), I moved to Houston, Texas, in July 1997 (no more snow, YAY!).

My obsession is to help YOU become a more productive version of yourself.

It all started when I was fired!

Back in July 2005, I was fired from my job at a local hospital. To be honest, I didn’t like what I was doing. It was a drag.

So, when I was terminated, I became an entrepreneur.

My first step into this new world was as a professional wedding and portrait photographer.

While that endeavor didn’t end well, one good thing came out of it: my love for public speaking (which is odd as I never liked giving oral presentations in school or college).

I left photography behind and began to create topics to speak about.

I’m embarrassed to admit that the first one was titled From Hopeless to Hopeful (please don’t ask!). Result? Fail!

Then I came up with How to Overcome Roadblocks on Your Path to Success. (Note to self: if you’re not successful, don’t create a talk about how to be successful!) Result? Fail!

At this point, I was at my wit’s end. I knew I wanted to speak, to teach…but in what?

And then it happened…!

I was on the phone with my coach and was not having a good day.

They asked what was going on, and I told them I couldn’t figure out what I want to speak on.

That’s when they said, “why don’t you talk about productivity?”

I remember saying, “I don’t know where that came from…but why would you say that?”

“You are one of the most productive people I know. You need to share that with the world.”

And that’s how I got here.
