Mark Albion
Mark is a conflicted achiever who climbed the ladder of success wrong by wrong. After nearly 20 years at Harvard (slow student), he left his b-school professorship to answer his life question: "How can I be a Marxist and still own my own Jacuzzi?" A serial entrepreneur, he became the faculty founder of Net Impact and the so-called "savior of b-school souls" (Business Week :), spending his middlessence speaking about purpose and social innovation at over 600 universities. To share what he learned, he wrote three books on leaving what you know to find what you love ( Making a Life, Making a Living), imbedding what you love into your career (More Than Money; e-learning platform @ More Than Money Careers, Benefit LLC), and developing the skills needed to scale your passion (True to Yourself). Recipient of a 2010 National Entrepreneur of the Year award, Mark has learned that money doesn't buy happiness, but cable TV does.
