He Followed It Up with a Trip to Laos to Ride Another Elephant–And Check It Off His Bucket List


NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., April 18, 2017 — CEO Coaching International’s founder and CEO Mark Moses, once wanted his company to “Make BIG Happen,” so he rode into the annual meeting atop an 8,000-pound African elephant. The elephant became an instant mascot and “thinking big” became a permanent part of the corporate culture.  His firm then went from the brink of bankruptcy to achieving their “HOT” or Huge Outrageous Target of doing over a billion dollars in business.

Moses, a successful CEO coach, has spent the last decade teaching his best practices methodology to his clients who are in turn achieving their HOTs.  Some of these include Grasshopper, which sold to Citrix for $172 million. A Wireless sold to a Private Equity firm for a nine-figure number. Carson Wealth recently sold a 29% stake at a value of $135 million, and several others clients have raised meaningful growth capital.  His recent, best-selling book Make BIG Happen teaches CEOs how to ask better questions, to get better results. The questions outlined in the book are the foundation of every fast-growing profitable business and answering them in the right way can lead to exceptional results.

Every year Moses is inspired to try new challenges, see new things, and aim for new achievements.  He then adds these goals to a continuously growing dream list and shares them,  to be held accountable.

Moses and his wife recently rode elephants in Laos as part of a dream cycling trip to Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand.

“I have always believed that life is to be lived,” commented Moses.
