Hi, I’m Mark Barron. Here’s the deal. Over the years, I’ve accumulated the words that have helped me communicate in the business world. And now I want to share them with you, so that you can succeed. I want to inspire people to “pay it forward.” Because, hopefully, these words will make a difference in your life, and you will be inspired to make a difference in the lives of others. You could look these words up in the dictionary, or you could go to school, but you wouldn’t learn these words, and I have a hunch you don’t have the time, energy or money for that. So let me explain why I’m doing this.


I’ve been really driven to succeed for as long as I can remember. When I was 7, I started my first business venture, selling baby chicks in front of a grocery store. But I had a hard time with school. I’m dyslexic. Words don’t come easy to me. And because I had such difficulty with school, I stopped going. They sent me to reform school. By 14, I was a dropout.


But my drive never went away. So I joined the carpenter’s union when I was 18. I started selling perfume and other merchandise out of my trunk, and pretty soon I was making more money doing that than I was with construction. I realized that my abstract thinking was unconventional, and that I’d be better off doing my own thing. I could see that there were only two paths in life to choose from: a life of financial hardship, or relentless hard work and sacrifice toward success.

So first I invented the Chemo Cap, which prevents alopecia in chemotherapy patients. Then I started a long-distance phone company. I invented the S-1 Gard, which is a life-saving device that you’ll find on major bus fleets all over the country. I’m working on a next-generation personal assistance-on-demand and delivery system, which you’ll be hearing more about in the future. I even opened a coffee bar chain. Not everything I did was successful, but I always worked hard.

And during all this, despite my relentless drive to succeed, I kept running into the one thing that had held me back since I was a kid: my lack of education. I still had a hard time communicating all my big ideas effectively. And it hit me that if I simply taught myself to use intelligent words, then I would have the edge. I had the ideas and I had the drive – all I was lacking was the right words.


So I started paying attention to the words that my business idols used. I accumulated a list of them. I’d notice certain words stick out in conversations, words that I’d hear frequently. Then I taught myself what they meant and started using them in conversation. I started feeling comfortable communicating and less insecure about my lack of education.


So now my goal is to share these words with other hard-working entrepreneurs and visionary underdogs so that they will have the sophisticated vocabulary needed to compete in this global economy. I hope these words make as much of a difference for you as they did for me.


And again, please donate.  Thank you.
