Mark Levy – Levy Innovation

I read Mark’s book Accidental Genius: Using Writing to Generate Your Best Ideas, Insight, and Content, a couple years ago and loved it, but never reached out to him. I ended up meeting him at a small dinner with some friends at an author marketing workshop in San Francisco. He is larger than life and I enjoyed every minute talking to him and hearing his speech the next day. Mark is a genius that I can only hope to afford someday; but I hope our friendship will deepen, and last for a long time.

Randomness from Mark Levy:

  • Mission/purpose: It’s what I do for a living. I have ideaphoria. That is, consultants and other thought leaders hire me to help then come up with their big sexy idea; their signature idea; the thing that they’re going to be known for in the world. Then I help them talk about that idea loudly and clearly in everything they do, like on their website, and in their books, speeches, and shows. That way, they become the flag-bearers for their idea, and anyone who loves that idea has to seek my client out.
  • Favorite Quote: “Make the most of yourself, for that is all there is of you.” ~ Emerson
