What good is having a business if it doesn’t provide you with a great lifestyle to enjoy the things you love?

Seeking out new experiences, helping others, travel, enjoying time with friends and family…whatever it is, let’s get you there!

I love life and I want you to enjoy yours to the fullest as well…

I’m dedicated to my family and after raising 3 wonderful kids mostly on my own there isn’t much out there in business that rattles my cage anymore!

I’ve built myself a reputation for thinking outside the box and approaching business challenges in new and innovative ways just comes naturally to me. I see the big picture clients say I’m “laser sharp” at picking up on small nuances that have created extraordinary results.

What this means for business owners is I that I help provide clarity, focus and direction.

I’ve had the honour of being an award-winning, global top-10 business coach and mentor. While this sounds great, the real achievement is how, over the past 12 years, my clients have been able to use my hands-on business experience and accelerated success strategies to create the business they got into business for in the first place!

That is why I do what I do.

I’m relentless in doing whatever it takes because I care. And I want the best for my clients. I help clients have big realisations and breakthroughs and will always encourage my clients to keep growing and be the best they can be.

I love that, it’s my passion and constant quest to facilitate that success, on every level. Every time.

Testimonials

“ A nice bonus of working with Mark is that I’m really developing as a business person in leadership and management as well as improving and growing our business. So I can see both the self-improvement in myself along with the positive changes in our business. With Mark’s help, we now have very clear goals for our business and we know exactly what we want to get out of the business. He makes me accountable for doing things which is fantastic. Mark’s always asking us ‘have you done this, have you done that and so on. This forces me to take action and get important things done. Our business was going well without Mark. However by being our coach we have massively increased productivity and profitability at the same time. I’m now working less hours, I have less stress and we are making more money! If you own a business and want someone to help you get into action and make your business a lot more profitable and successful (without working harder) then Mark is worth talking to. I can’t recommend Mark highly enough. ”

“ Mark helped us see that our current business model was not scalable and he worked with us to develop a new business model which is now starting to perform very well. Best of all, this new business model allows us to automate a lot of what we used to do manually yet still allows us to provide great service to a large number of clients at the same time. If you want to build a business that works really well without you having to be actively involved every moment of the day, then Mark is the person to talk to. He provides the outside expertise and accountability that is very difficult to gain by yourself. His business coaching services have been an excellent investment for our business and I have no hesitation in highly recommending his services to other business owners. We’ve used Mark as our business coach since August 2016. One of the most valuable things that we’ve gained by working with Mark was learning how to set the strategy for building a great business. My business partner and I both come from technical backgrounds so we didn’t have the experience in important areas like leadership, building high performing teams of people and more. ”

Tobin Page – Publift
Coach Mark Vischschoonmaker

“ I have a fairly new business designing and building restaurants. And being new in business I wanted guidance on how to grow my business and make it successful without having to go through the trial and error approach of doing things the wrong way. With Mark’s help, we went back to basics and very quickly had some amazingly effective systems and processes working in the business. I get a lot more of the important business stuff done and I’ve noticed that my team are also far more productive as well. I like the way that Mark doesn’t just give you good business advice and guidance. He also helps you come to good business decisions yourself as well. This means you are learning to become a more effective and successful business owner at the same time. He provides external inspiration and advice whenever you need it. Best of all, the majority of the things he recommends are very simple to do and put into action. ”

“ One of the things I like about working with Mark is how flexible this service is. For the first year, Mark helped us put in place all the processes to make our business run well and create a great culture. Now Mark gives us advice and feedback on our business challenges and goals and I really enjoy having input from someone who is an expert on business and takes a genuine interest in what we are doing. What I like about working with Mark as a business coach is that he makes us accountable so we get things done in our business. He makes sure that no matter how busy you get, you always remember your ‘big picture’ focus for your business and keep your end goals and direction in mind with everything that you do. A great benefit of using Mark is that he is the perfect person to use as a sounding board when you have any questions about what you should do in a particular business situation. Mark is great to use when you want to improve your business because he makes sure that you will do the work so you can enjoy the results that you are looking for. ”

“ I’ve owned a security business for 7 years and I never had enough time to get everything done. I’ve been working with Mark for 9 months now and he’s transformed our business in this tiny amount of time. We now have procedures and systems in place that run like clockwork, our turnover is already up over 60% and we’ve taken on two new staff members to handle the extra work. Best of all I now have free time! One of the things I like about working with Mark is that he has some good advice and ideas on any topic you ask him. He clearly explains everything in plain English. He also uses easy to understand analogies that make it simple to remember and apply whatever he recommends. When I look back over the last 9 months I’m delighted at how easy it has been to improve both our profits and productivity doing some very simple things. We’ve made small changes in some key areas and these have produced remarkable results. The good news is that I have only put into action some of the things that Mark has recommended. So I still have even better results to enjoy as we begin using more of his ideas and advice in the future. ”

Peter Spratt – Tesnik Security
Coach Mark Vischschoonmaker

“ In the past, there were a lot of things that we wanted to get done in our business. However, we never got most of these done. By using Mark they not only got done, but they also improved our results dramatically. What I like about working with Mark is that he looks at the whole business and then shows us how to do a lot of things much more effectively. In fact, in just 18 months the results are just incredible…Turnover has gone up, margins have gone up, staff are clearer in their job descriptions, advertising results are better and we are now spending less money on advertising. I treat using the services of Mark as like having another Managing Director for our business who has great ideas to improve and make our business a lot better. If you want to grow and expand your business, use Mark. You will be able to use all of his expertise and experience to improve your business. Using the services of Mark is exactly what we needed to take our business to the next level. He has my highest recommendation. ”

John Batori – Have a Seat

“ I’ve been using the services of Mark Vischschoonmaker as a business coach since 2014. When I first met Mark I didn’t’ think I needed a business coach however within 15 minutes of meeting him, I knew that Mark was exactly the person I was after. When I first started working with Mark our business was turning over around $800,000 a year. This year our turnover will be close to three million dollars. So that’s already a 300% improvement in our results thanks to his help. We’ve made a huge number of changes in our business over the last three years and Mark has been helpful for all of these changes. It’s so useful to have an impartial person who I can bounce ideas off whenever I want. It can be very lonely in business and you don’t normally have people to talk to who can give you useful advice and guidance on what to do. One of the nice benefits of working with Mark is that my business now runs so much smoother than it used to. Mark has introduced, and helped us implement, a number of “big business tools” which made a huge difference to the business. Thanks to Mark we now have processes in place for every part of our business. Every role is documented so people know exactly what to do and because of this the new people we recruit are brought up to speed faster and are now so much more productive than they used to be. ”

“ Since 2008 Mark has been counsel to our business and team members. The longevity of the relationship is a testament to his coaching methodology and his solid, unflappable character. During our time together, our business has expanded dramatically in every sense, especially getting the best out of myself and our people. While decisions and the direction of our company is ultimately my responsibility, Mark provides invaluable, constructive feedback and is an excellent sounding board. If I were to describe Mark, I would say, he’s clinically perceptive, thoughtful, considerate and honest. His business acumen is incomparable. He gets the best out of me personally and professionally and has my (and my teams’) utmost respect. ”
