Oh, hey there, friends. I have a new guest for you this week — meet Mark Messick, the 16-year-old bestselling author of more than eleven books.

“The reason I’m successful is because I was naive.”

Mark decided that he wanted to become an author at age 10, and found his chance as his family transitioned to a new home. During that time, he also transitioned to being home-schooled, which gave him the unique opportunity to focus and hone his writing and marketing skills.

“Whenever I write a new book, I learn new things about myself… Sometimes I think that I learn more writing books than reading them.”

Mark has a great attitude and tons of positivity and optimism about the future, even though he admits that he has no idea what it may hold.

“I think it’s important to have something to strive for, even if it’s not necessarily super-attainable.”

You can listen to today’s episode using the controls above or on iTunes, and while you’re at it, be sure to get your own copy of Mark’s books, visit his website, take his Kindle course*, or follow him on Twitter.

“I think if you’re determined enough to do something, you can find a way to do it. “
*Disclaimer: Please note that this podcast episode is not an endorsement of Mark’s video course, as I have not taken the course myself. 🙂
