The first Leadership is Listening episode is with a respected leader, Mark Spurlock. Mark started as a direct Xerox sales rep 40 years ago. He started Innovative Business Systems in 1992 and sold his company to Benchmark in 2013.

His success as an Agent owner is a true testament to his leadership style and ability.

Mark has a passion for cycling.


Mark also believes in giving back.  On May 18th, 2016 Mark’s cycling club hosted a 10-mile bike ride called Ride of Silence that promotes bicycle safety and to honor those in Abilene and West Texas who have been killed in a cycling accident.

One of my goals in starting Leadership is Listening is to create a vessel for helping people and I believe it can serve a higher purpose by giving back.

I set a goal for downloads and charged $1.99 for each one. We didn’t reach our goal this time, but I’m hoping to do better next time.

I want to Thank you for your support in this project and encourage you to give more in my next one.

“If you want more happy than your heart can hold, if you want to stand taller… the truth be told, take whatever you have and give it away.”
