Start something you can be proud of

Launch your creative project from a place of confidence

Anyone can start a blog, a newsletter, a podcast. There are so many tools that make it so easy… but with so little investment needed, it can be just so easy to quit. You’re here because you don’t want to do that. You want to create something of value – something deeper.

Over 130 million books have been published in the world, and millions more self-published titles. Your message doesn’t have to reach millions, or even thousands. If you have something important to say to 10 people, that is enough.

However many minds or hearts you touch, every one is an opportunity to build a long-lasting relationship.

From the ear to the brain to the heart

Your work delivers a message to your audiences’s ears and eyes, at a time and in an environment that suits them. Your knowledge and expertise helps that message find a space in the mind of your reader, viewer, or listener. By showing up with consistency and speaking authentically, your passion and their trust in you combine to drive that message home to your audience’s heart. That’s where trust lives.

Mark Steadman, creative coach

Meet your guide

I’m Mark. I’ve been creating music, fiction, radio plays, videos, live events, and digital products since the late 20th century. Podcasting has long been my speciality, but it turns out there’s not a lot you need to know about podcasting that doesn’t apply to any other kind of audience-centric work.

I founded a podcast media hosting company in 2016, which I sold in the spring of 2021. I now channel what’s been called my “infectious enthusiasm” into helping creative people clear a path for themselves.

As well as being a squishy human, I’m also details-focused and come with 20+ years of deep technical knowledge about how to lift heavy objects up to the Cloud.

Here’s what past partners have said

Such a rich and great partnership – always supportive, awesomely talented and with you on the journey.
—Pia Lee, Co-founder & CEO, Squadify
I love Mark's ability to support me and create a safe space, to be practical yet empowering, and to help me eat the elephant one bite at a time.
—Serena Savini, Host, I'm Back!
Mark allowed Shamash and I to basically play for the whole time and not worry about anything. Honestly if this is what work is meant to feel like, then we're on to a winner.

Here are some projects I’ve worked on

Mindset, Mood & Movement

Sal and I spent a number of weeks together, helping him craft and position his podcast so that it spoke to exactly the listeners he hopes will become customers. Using my Podcast Canvas – a process that’s over a decade in the making – Sal is able to create content he knows will resonate with his audience, because it solves problems and answers questions they wrestle with every day.

The Heroine's Journey

I worked with Christine Raine and her team to develop a fortnightly bilingual podcast, with episodes alternating in English and Spanish, discussing various aspects of the Heroine’s Journey.

The Naked Art of Living

Anna Kolak presents a collection of beautifully-crafted guides to help you in all aspects of life, from overcoming the fear of starting something new, to using hypnosis to change aspects of yourself you wish were different.
