We had the good fortune of connecting with Marc Hildebrand and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Marc, what do you attribute your success to?
The biggest factor behind my success has to do with mastering my mindset. What’s funny, is how I used to always be able to talk myself out of doing anything. Most of the time I would make it appear like I was doing myself and others a favor by NOT doing something I know I needed to. I realized I could take charge of those thoughts which would in turn get me to show up and take action instead. So instead of thinking I didn’t have the time, I would ask myself, “How could I make the time?” Instead of thinking of fear of failure as a bad thing, I’d remind myself “This is an important part of the process. The people who have the most success are the ones who feel fear but do it anyway.” And “There are only two outcomes that could happen if I do this. One is I succeed the first time. Two I will learn from it.” Most of the times I’ve found failure is a better teacher, and is more often than not the reason why people pay me so I can teach them how to do that themselves!

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I run online mastermind teams for leaders in both their careers and businesses. What separates what I do from other teams out there, is the focus on being an amazing leader at work and in business, while also creating a legendary marriage and epic connection with your kids, and dominating your physical and mental health. You can 100% rock all of those areas of your life, and you don’t need to choose just one or two areas, which is what I Initially did that really limited myself.

When I came to the realization that I could own all of those areas, it really opened up the door for me. My brain was now searching for the answers to HOW. What I found, is a system that helps us focus on the most important activities in each area, while continuing to grow and up-level our mindset and actions so we can reach our full potential in all areas of life.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Let me start off by saying I’m a complete introvert, I’m definitely not the “going out type” but I will work with you here! Most likely I’d head to Disneyland, and I’d ask you to bring your family along as well, as that’s where a majority of our family trips take us. Spending time with the family, getting to unplug from everyone’s devices, and creating memories that you’d remember for a lifetime is what it’s all about. 6 months after you’re no longer here on this planet your work and business won’t necessarily remember you, but your family will remember you forever. That’s why it’s called LEGACY. Being my best friend, I’d help you create that for yourself by spending time with your family, fully disconnected!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
It’s so hard to chose just one person or group to shout out, because every single one of them was such an important part of where I am today. When I think about the success I’ve had in losing 100 pounds, creating amazing relationships with my wife and kids, developing my leadership skills for my career, and creating a successful life coaching business, it was always due to the people I surrounded myself with. They were always better than me, and as a result, lifted me up to their level. Whether it was my life and business coach Josh Coats, my Dad Edge Accelerator Mastermind instructors Jeff, Jason and Larry, or even the current mastermind that I run for my own team, they have all been instrumental in my growth and I owe them so much!
