Conversation about What Matters

Coaching in Life and Business

Feeling stuck? At a crossroads in your career or emotional life? Even the strongest among us can feel lost, unsure, ambivalent, or unhappy at times. Mark's career as a radio host across the US, and depth of personal ministry, has brought him to a unique position of life coaching and business "chaplain" if you will. Let his communication skills work for you.

It All Happened ...

You may have never considered reinventing the wheel, but have you ever needed to reinvent yourself? After decades in radio broadcasting and marketing, Mark found himself in a new chapter in life, ready for a reinvigorated challenge. Retirement was not in his vocabulary. He decided to bank on his creativity and communication skills, desiring to share his years of experience with the next generation. The Elfstrand Group was born.

Need help to achieve your goals in life? I use an array of communication skills to provide coaching services that give you the tools for success. In addition to 1-on-1 consultations and group sessions, I regularly host workshops and seminars for people who are interested in developing their own coaching techniques.


Life Coaching Session

Many people in life struggle with the “why” questions. Why do I work so hard and not find it fulfilling? Why are my personal relationships not working out? Why are deeper level friendships missing from my life? And, of course, the big one: why am I here on this earth? Let Mark help you process these demanding life questions. Call now to schedule a session.
