/About Marcos


My Purpose

Hi! I’m Marcos. I’m a social entrepreneur, career + life coach, consultant, speaker, and community builder. I work with professionals, entrepreneurs, and creatives to help them pursue work they are passionate about, build authentic personal brands, become financially successful, and create lives that make the world a better place. I do this through 1-on-1 coaching, nonprofit and businesses consulting, and on a larger scale as Co-founder + Executive Director of Be Social Change where I’ve built the largest social impact community and professional development hub in New York City.


My Work

Over the past 10 years I’ve been fortunate enough to have educated, coached, and mentored thousands of professionals and entrepreneurs from every background and industry. One key lesson I’ve learned is when you grow your career and business, you create a greater capacity to make a positive impact in the world. As a result, my work focuses on creating programs, communities, and resources to help people and organizations connect with their purpose, unlock passions and talents, increase financial freedom, and grow their social impact.

/Speaking

I love sharing my knowledge and expertise in social innovation, professional development, entrepreneurship, and personal branding to teach audiences how to build purpose-driven careers, business, and lives.

I’m passionate about expanding people’s view of themselves and the world by helping them dream big, fearlessly follow their passions, create financial freedom, and discover ways to make a difference in the lives of others. I not only focus on inspiring people to act, but also on leaving audiences with actionable ideas and proven strategies to have a powerful impact on their work and lives.

My keynotes and workshops focus on purpose-driven career building, entrepreneurship and social innovation, personal banding, community-building, and Millennial engagement. I also give trainings on Lean Startup for Social Innovation, focused on integrating a culture of entrepreneurship and innovation into nonprofits and social enterprises.
