While earning a degree in mass communications at St. Cloud State University in Minnesota, Mark wrote, directed and performed in a comedy troupe called Mom's Apple Pie. The group performed together throughout the Midwest in the '70s, and when it disbanded, Mark went solo and combined his comedy training with motivational speaking.
Soon after, Mark was employed by Jostens—the leading manufacturer of class rings, yearbooks and graduation products—to speak to their customers throughout North America. In 1981 Mark was featured in a film called "The Greatest Days of Your Life … (So Far)," which was seen by millions of viewers worldwide. It earned him the Golden Apple and Silver Screen film awards.
