Transformational Coaching
For Ambitious Creatives

Headshot of Mark

It takes one to know one, right? Being a creative doesn't mean we have to work in a creative field. It's really about how we see our relationship with the world and what we might bring into it. Creatives feel compelled; we feel called, driven, and at our best, we are inspired.

This requires a certain approach to life - one that comes with a unique set of internal and external challenges. Sometimes these can leave us feeling:



out of alignment,




out of flow,

or something else.

For creatives, these can feel like a slow death. But staying in that space isn't mandatory; remember, humans were never built to go it alone. Key moments like these can be catalysts for incredible growth if we leverage a partner to help us step outside our own box. Together we can create a space to finally think about our thinking, before we spin our wheels with more endless doing.

Working with Mark Poiesz is an enlightening experience! Through our coaching sessions, I re-discovered myself and found confidence, focus, and gratitude— the tools I need to deal with life and work challenges. I walked away with a sense of connection to the world surrounding me. Better yet, he guided me to find success within myself.
