Jacob: Hello everybody, this is Jacob Sapochnick with enchantinglawyer.com. Welcome to our podcast. Today, I have Mark Lack as our special guest.
Mark is the founder and CEO of The Peak Performance Club. It’s the world’s number one source for empowering great results in young adults. He’s an entrepreneur, he’s a coach. He’s a young guy and he’s doing great things. Mark is also a former professional paintball player. He’s actually won the highest financial reward in paintball history.
Mark, welcome to our show.
Mark: Great to be here. I appreciate you having me on your show.
Jacob: Definitely. Mark, tell me a bit about your journey.
Mark: Awesome. I’d be happy to.
It’s sort of a long story because it’s about ten years but I’ll speed it up here for the audience.
It really started back when I wanted to get into paintball, oddly enough. I was around 14 years old and trying to convince my loving and supportive parents to get me into this super expensive hobby called paintball. So, I painted in the picture of where I wanted to be.
No, I’m not going to just take all your money for this expensive hobby. I actually want to do something with it. I want to become one of the best in the world and play on this crazy, professional team, the best team in the world called Dynasty with these older guys that are awesome. They win everything. Parents were like, “Okay, alright, Mark. You’re going to be the best in the world and do this.”
Speeding a long story up, my parents supported me in this decision. Within about three to four years, I was on the best team in the world, being one of the best professional players in the world, traveling the world, doing everything and more that I talked about doing at age 14. Towards the end of my career in paintball, I really got into personal development.
One of the people that really started me on that journey was Tony Robbins. I did a lot of things in paintball that normal people, even the professionals, weren’t doing. One of those things was I trained at a facility where Olympians were trained and where college athletes that want to be professional athletes were trained. I did things … You know the old saying “Successful people do what unsuccessful people are not willing to do.”
And so my dad, being a successful entrepreneur himself, was able to instill great parts of wisdom into me and one of those was “Learn from the best if you want to be the best.” I did that in paintball. It worked out great. In three to four years I became one of the best in the world. Now I’m really taking a lot of those principles and the mindset that it took for me to be the best in the world in that specific area and now I’m carrying that over into the entrepreneurial world which is where I’m at today.
