From Chicken Soup for the College Soul

Who Is Mark Victor Hansen?

Mark Victor Hansen wants to “Change the World, One Story at a Time” through the Chicken Soup for the Soul series.

As a professional speaker he wants to talk to people who care about things that matter and make a difference in listeners’ lives now and forever. He has spoken live to over 2 million people in forty countries at over 2,500 speaking engagements.

As a businessman/entrepreneur he wants to save lives, fortunes and futures. He’s actively involved in many business interests—dedicated to feeding the hungry, housing the homeless and reforesting our planet with 18 billion trees.

In 1962, Mark created a rock and roll group called “The Messengers” and “played” his way through high school earning $17 per hour—six nights a week.

Mark attended Southern Illinois University (SIU) and was a research assistant to the “Leonardo da Vinci of our time” Dr. R. Buckminster Fuller. Dr. Fuller finished Einstein’s “Unified Field Theory”, called Synergetic Mathematics. Dr. Fuller patented two thousand inventions, including Geodesic Domes, wrote forty books and created World Games. World Games is a simulated model to “Make the World Work for 100 percent of Humanity.” Mark loved working with Dr. Fuller and his fellow research assistants on World Games.

While at SIU, Mark was a student leader and student ambassador to India, Thailand, Vietnam and Japan. Mark wanted to stay in school forever—except that when Kent State University blew up, rebellious students did the same at SIU and the school was temporarily closed.

Mark has honorary doctorates from Life Chiropractic College, Cleveland College, Southern Illinois University and Golden State University (closed before it finished its accreditation process).

Mark has coauthored twenty-six Chicken Soup for the Soul books, Dare to Win, and The Aladdin Factor. Additionally, Mark Victor Hansen has authored Future Diary, Miracle of Tithing, How to Achieve Total Prosperity, and is busy at work on several new titles.

An autobiographical video called The Real Me has been created and highlights Mark’s lifetime of achievements.

Mark’s audio programs include Sell Yourself Rich; Visualizing Is Realizing; How to Build Your Speaking and Writing Empire and Living Your Dreams.

Mark has worked tirelessly to help the Chicken Soup for the Soul series be the first series to sell one billion copies.
