Mark's New Year Revolution

A former Radio Clatterbridge volunteer has described how he's helping people turn their lives around - just like he did.

Mark Bowness has published a guide to help people around the world achieve success.

Mark, who grew up in Hoylake, was a volunteer at the station during the 1990s.

But it was a dark period in his later life which was to test him to his limits.

He's revealed how he attempted suicide when his marriage broke down eight years ago.

It was while sitting in a hospital bed during his recovery that he says he realised he had been alive for 26 years, and yet, he had never truly lived.

As the New Year approached, Mark began to contemplate what his New Year's resolution would be and realised what his life needed was a complete overhaul – a revolution.

“We try to change one aspect of our lives and as other aspects remain the same, our old habits are too overwhelming and we quit.” - Mark Bowness

Now 34, Mark has transformed his life.

He leased a 200-acre desert island in Fiji, and created a business that inspired people to build an eco-community which they could then visit.

Tribewanted was featured in media around the world and even turned into a five-part prime time BBC Two series.

Mark, who was later helped by Dragon's Den star Peter Jones on an entrepreneurial idea to help disadvantaged youngsters, is now sharing his experiences and helping others effect change in their own lives.

Mark now lives in Melbourne and has published a free eBook New Year's Revolution which, together with webinars and help from a team of experts, he hopes will ensure that 2014 is the beginning of a similar revolution in thousands of lives across the world.
