About Mario Porreca
THE MINDSET CHEF
MARIO PORRECA IS A MINDSET PERFORMANCE STRATEGIST, INTERNATIONAL SPEAKER, CHEF, ENTREPRENEUR, AND AUTHOR.
Mario started his story as a performer. As soon as he was able to walk he was sneaking into the waiting room of his fathers chiropractic clinic and putting on shows for the patients who were waiting. Everyone loved his shows…except for the staff who grew tired of seeing the same renditions of Dumbo, Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory, and The Wizard of Oz over and over again.
Little did Mario know at that time that performing and teaching are brothers. As he got older his love of performing matured into personal growth and development with the intense desire and intent to take what he learned and teach others.
Loving people and helping them to genuinely smile from inner joy has always been the heart of my mission.
After high school, Mario pursued his second love in life with the goal to change people’s lives using it as a medium—food. He was a very successful chef for nearly six years before the intense calling of working more closely with others was too loud to ignore.
Food as an experience has always been and will always be a major part of my life. From cooking with my grandfather at a young age to devoting the early part of my life to it—food will always play a major role in what I do and how I communicate.
He left the kitchen and started his own business, ironically out of his fathers chiropractic clinic, coaching people to reach their health, wellness, weight, and mindset goals.
As Mario operated this business he was also spending every available second studying mindset, psychology, personal growth, spiritual development, and more to apply what he learned to his own life and to more importantly be able to serve others at a deeper more profound level.
Mario has authored two cookbooks geared toward healthy living and has also authored a third book centered around achieving personal and business success.
Mario has appeared on TV over 50 times promoting his books and business and has been a featured speaker for numerous groups, events, schools, and corporations.
Mario’s main focus is sharing ideas through food in a unique way to help busy achievers think better and do better so that they live better.
Mario resides in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, with his girlfriend Erica and their puppy Waldo.
