Have you ever wondered why Mark works in the financial planning business? What drove him to start Howard Financial Group? In this episode, Mark opens up and shares his influences, dreams, and goals to help you get to know why he’s so passionate about what he does every day.


Hopefully that passion has come across in this podcast over many episodes, but we wanted to take a little time on the personal side of the business. It’s not a question we get every day but knowing who we are and what’s important to us will help us serve you better.


Here’s some of what you’ll learn in this episode: 

  • The impact his father had on his life and why his passing changed the trajectory of Mark’s career.
  • Why Mark sold his ownership in a health club to move into the financial industry.
  • What professional influences has he had since starting the business?
  • What he considers to be the most gratifying and most frustrating parts of the job.


Thanks for listening! We’ll be back for another show every other Thursday.
