Mark Drager – Founder of Phanta Media          

Most of us are more awesome, more extraordinary, more capable
than our personas put out. Because we are a little bit bashful, we
don’t realize how awesome we really are. It’s a gap between how
we are perceived and how amazing we really are.
My job is to close that gap.
