Hi, I’m Mark.

I’m a Human Connection Specialist and founder of Create The Love.

In other words…I’m a speaker, writer, motivator, creator and collaborator.

I’m a bridge between the academic and the human, inviting people to explore the good, bad, downright ugly, and beautiful sides of connection. All. The. Things. I’m an emotional translator, empowering people to give words to their feelings, step into courage, and create a life + love they’ll look back on with a resounding “f*ck yes.”

Most of all, I’m a human being. I just happen to say most of the things that people tend to keep to themselves.

Wanna find out how to
love yourself?

Kind, generous and caring words I have received along the way.

“Mark is a passionate and powerful speaker. He is kind, warm, compassionate, and a hell of a lot of fun to be around. He is authentic, charismatic, and a leader in the industry. The Mark Groves on stage is the same Mark Groves you would run into in a coffee shop.”
– Erin Skye Kelly, Best-Selling Author

“Mark is a powerful guide for the relational experience. Not just romantic – the relationship to all things; to self.”

“Mark has an electrifying presence and a kind heart, and when we part ways he always leaves me with a smile. Mark lives his truth every day and is incredibly genuine in his practice. Mark just gets it. That’s his magic.”

“Mark holds the light for people and helps them to relight it.”

“To know Mark is to love him. I have found myself on numerous occasions quoting passages from his blog to my friends. If anyone is looking for relationship or life advice, I would recommend him first.”
– Stacie

“The greatest gift that Mark gave me was the understanding that I am in control of my life.”

My Story

I’ve been the awkward kid, the pretty boy, the brokenhearted guy, the womanizer, the corporate ladder climber, the white picket fence chaser, the partier, the intellectual, the poet, and now…I am me.

Sparked by a pivotal heartbreak, I have learned with time to let go of the life that I was taught to want. Through curious vulnerability, I’ve unmasked my inner truths as a communicator, partner and human. The journey hasn’t come easily, freely or simply, but it’s been one hell of a beautiful ride.

Today, I’m sharing the journey of finding my own truths and helping others uncover theirs – on stage, online and on the air. I bring 20+ years of experience in sales, teamwork and leadership, brand launches and positive psychology to my work (and the occasional dirty joke).
