Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 11, 2012
Inc.com’s Trep Life Original Video Series premiered its fifth episode of the series featuring Mark Achler, senior vice president of strategy, innovation and new business at Redbox. In the online docu-series, Trep Life provides viewers with a unique look into Mark’s day-to-day life as an intra-preneur at Redbox.
"Mark is truly a great visionary in the world of entrepreneurs given his experience and achievements with leading innovators such as Apple and Redbox," states Scotty Cadenhead, creator of the Trep Life Original Series. “I think entrepreneurs can learn a lot from his experiences, dedication and tremendous desire to connect people.”
Redbox, a fully automated movie and video game rental kiosk that occupies about 12 square feet of retail space, is America’s destination for entertainment. The company has grown from 200 locations to more than 30,000 in just 10 short years. Today, 68 percent of the U.S. population lives within a five-minute drive of a Redbox® kiosk. In March 2012, Redbox rented its two billionth disc.
The important themes Mark stresses in his episode include:
•Be Determined: The majority of Mark’s innovations have succeeded giving him the drive and ability to do so again while his knowledge from things not going as planned fuel his burning desire to succeed.
•Commit to Innovation: As an entrepreneur and Redbox intra-preneur, Mark views innovation as the cornerstone to success.
•Create Balance: The life of a serial intra-preneur craves balance. Creating equilibrium between productivity and quality of life allows Mark to achieve both professional and personal successes. Dedicated to passing it forward, he is also very involved in industry networking and mentorship.
“As entrepreneurs, we are constantly thinking about our customers and how to make their lives better,” said Mark Achler, senior vice president of strategy, innovation and new business at Redbox. “The hunt for creating something new is like nirvana for a trep. It is our job to stay ahead of the curve and brainstorm big ideas that can make a difference in people’s lives.”
