Welcome to episode 10 of Ask Mark, where I answer your questions about personal development to help you become the best version of yourself.

From interviewing people from all walks of life on the What I Know Now podcast, I want to share with you what I have learned from my guests by answering any questions you have about personal development, networking and building meaningful relationships. The aim of Ask Mark is to help you achieve your goals sooner, so you stand on the shoulders of giants.

I love hearing from my listeners. If you would like to get involved and have your question feature on the show, please leave your question in the comments box or drop me a message on social media in the links below.

Now sit back, plug in those headphones and enjoy because it is time to learn together about personal development, networking, building meaningful relationships and so much more.



In this episode, I answer a listener’s question on how to deal with negative people. There will be negative people no matter where you go, but you have to be careful not to let them bring you down.

It would be easier to work with positive people who inspire and motivate us, but it is not always as easy as that. Even the closest people to you, such as family and friends can be negative.

There are three tips I have learned to help you deal with negative people. Firstly, Use their negative feelings to gve you energy and reinforce your decision to live a positive lifestyle. Rise above the negativity.

The second piece of advice is to empathise with them. They could be dealing with things you don’t know about so try to see it from their view. The final tip is to give them feedback and try to help them.
