My mission

To consistently create content, media, tutorials and guidance to help you succeed as an early stage entrepreneur or founder.

I openly, honestly and clearly break through all of the entrepreneurial "noise" to give you clear, concise opinions, actions, strategies and tactics that will help you to achieve your own version of excellence.

The more you expect from yourself,
the more you WILL excel.

I'm Mark, nice to meet you


In 2005 I decided that I no longer wanted to work the 9 to 5 for people with whom I had little in common. So I quit.

Since then I've developed from freelancer to multiple business owner, having worked with the UK’s Ministry of Defence, the NHS and some of the UK’s biggest corporations and financial institutions.

I created my first business, HACKSAW™ and ran myself into a burn out shortly after. That experience opened my eyes and made me realise that with a few simple changes, concise guidance and transparent straight talking, the first years in business don't have to lead to that.

And so, I created Excellence Expected to help other people through those arduous first years in business. And I love doing it.

I'm here to help. The more you expect from yourself, the more you will excel.

To succeed in business, you have to live, too.
It's really simple.

Do you want to:

  • Spend less time "working"?
  • Generate more revenue per hour spent on your business?
  • Stop feeling guilty about taking time off?
  • Enjoy time with your family & friends without your phone "pinging" all of the time?
  • Work to live, not live to work?

I was just like you: over worked, under-productive and not as profitable as I could be, by a long shot.

After a destructive burn-out I taught myself how to become better and how to create a work / life harmony that works for everyone in my life.

And I wrote it down.

I send select, high quality content exclusively to people like you who invest time in developing themselves.

The issue is not giving me the best email address to contact you on, the issue is whether you are serious about being the best you can be.
