Space and environment helps us have awesome ideas. Mark bought a cabin to be able to get away to slow down and innovate.

Often times, when you take time off, your company does better than it does when you are there because your team performs at their best.

It is imperative for entrepreneurs and business owners to recharge. The more you relax to avoid burnout, the more money you will stand to make.

SparkSpace is a very fun, relaxing, inspiring environment. Similar to a New York loft with interesting artwork on the walls and various colors. There is also movable furniture that you can arrange for various meetings etc. The more comfortable people feel in an environment, the more creative they will be. They will also be more effective because they feel they are able to be themselves.

Lessons Mark learnt from collaborating with Story Brand:

  • Include Call To Actions on pages
  • Include less info / pages on site
  • Hired a Marketing Manager that is able to run with the marketing side of things
