We Do Hard Things

with Mark Drager


As an entrepreneur and strategist, I’ve built a multi-million dollar marketing agency, I’ve helped launch startups and transformed international brands... and yet despite all the success, I still wake up every morning with the feeling that I’m not good enough.  That I’ve not come close to hitting my potential.  And I may never achieve the high-hopes I have for myself. 


I believe we all have something to prove - to the doubters, the haters, the voices in our own heads...

So, each week I will share real, tactical advice and the most interesting and inspiring interviews.  Because my goal is to help those of us who have something to prove show the world, and ourselves, that we have what it takes to make it happen.


This is the We Do Hard Things Podcast.

About the We Do Hard Things Podcast

Hosted by Mark Drager, each week the We Do Hard Things Podcast focuses on next-level conversations, tactical advice, and inspirational stories.  Because the basics are fine for those who are just getting started.  But for those who are looking for the next level, it doesn't come from doing the comfortable or easy things.

But most people are afraid to go there because they think it's reserved for the superhuman amongst us.  Those who have special gifts, special skills, or an ungodly amount of drive and ambition.


But as you and I both know that's simply not true.

We all face hard times; whether we chose them or they chose us.

And what we learn through those moments are lessons that shape the very fabric of who we are called to be.

So let's show ourselves and the world that we have what it takes to make it happen.
