Mark A. Dare

Mark D

You might say that Mark Dare has programming bred into him. His father was one of the very first people trained by IBM in the Cincinnati area back in 1960. So mark was raised in a house where computers and programming were spoken of commonly long before it became commonplace. Mark has written complete systems for companies like Mosler Safe and Globe Furniture Rentals. Mark has managed million dollar projects and worked on all sizes of computers from PC networks all the way up to big water cooled mainframes. He has specialized in custom software written in nearly 35 different computer languages creating systems as diverse as user-friendly Point of Sale systems, integrated inventory systems, complex billing systems and manufacturing tracking systems along with many state of the art web applications and even IQ testing and grading software. As a result of this Mark has wide ranging experience in all aspects of technology that most any business would need along with a level of business knowledge that is needed to make projects successful.

In 1989 Mark became a consultant for a small system 3 consulting firm in the Cincinnati area. Eight years later Mark struck out on his own and formed a company called ICG. As a consultant and with ICG he has had over 300 different consulting engagements. Many have turned into long term support and help positions for customers. Mark actually serves as the main support person for more than 5 different companies.

In 2002 ICG morphed into a company that concentrated solely on the Internet and developing software for that arena. Shortly afterwards Mark discovered how to drive the proper demographically targeted traffic to a companies website. At that point ICG really took off in the arena of web development. Mark has become a Google Qualified Adwords Specialist and specializes in many forms of Internet Marketing, such as Facebook, Facebook PPC, LinkedIn, Twiter, and even email marketing. Mark has helped many companies not only survive but literally grow and thrive even when the economy has turned down.

Mark’s philosophy to serving his customers is a simple one where you find out where the customer is currently and where they would like to be in the future, then he simply takes his knowledge of internet marketing and designs a system using the proper internet properties to get the customer there within the customer’s budget.

Mark currently serves as the main technology contact or IT manager to more than 5 different businesses in the Cincinnati area. He has maintained many very long term relationships, over 10 years, with clients. It seems that the only way he stops serving a client is when competitors buy out the client. In some cases competitors have bought out clients in order to get access to the custom software that Mark has either designed or written.

Mark is a member of Tri-County Nazarene Church in West Chester Ohio. He and his wife Jackie live in South West Ohio and have 4 children. Adam is now 30 years old and works for ICG as a lead project manager. Bonnie who is 24 is a manager at a Kroger store. Bradley who is 23 is a Nuclear Engineer on the USS Enterprise Aircraft Carrier and Luke who is 12 and has multiple Black belts in Karate.

Charles & Liz Robinson


Many years ago I was fortunate enough to be mentored by a World Master Chef who was at the pinnacle of his profession. Among the many things he taught me was this important lesson, which I never forgot. He said, “Neil, if you’re going to play the game, you might as well play with a full deck.” He was right of course. And, he practiced what he preached. The wisdom that he was imparting to me some 30 years ago was this: To “play with a full deck” in any profession requires endless attention to a vast array of professional skills, daily details, and opportunities for personal growth and advancement. Over the years I have been clever enough to take his advice and apply it to my own career. The result thus far is that I have enjoyed success in my various career paths and I am enjoying work and life more than I ever have. But the great passion that has emerged in me over the years is to assist others as they work toward achieving their greatest fulfillment in their lives and careers.

People everywhere have so much to offer the world, their families, and the business communities of which they are a part. But, at the same time, these same gifted persons struggle to get beyond obstacles that hinder their performance. So, in order to bring my passion into the real world, I work with individuals as a Personal Coach. What that means is that I can bring a tailored professional coaching experience to almost any situation wherein an individual would like to move forward into a more desirable future state. Some of the areas I focus in are executive leadership development, personal branding, image consulting, interpersonal relationship coaching, and internet marketing coaching. In addition I also serve as a professional writing coach and spiritual mentor.

My educational experience has been somewhat unique. I have a Bachelor of Science in Business Management with an emphasis in the Food Service Industry. I also have a Master of Divinity and an earned Doctor of Ministry. My doctoral work focused on the application of professional coaching to the formation and leadership development of ministry leaders. I am a Certified Trained Coach having completed the coursework through the Adler School of Coaching. I also have been certified as a Team Coach through the LivingSystems Approach TM developed by Adria Trowhill, MCC.

In the game of life we are all dealt a different hand. But with some skilled professional help we can all learn how to play the high-stakes games of life and career with a “full deck.”
