About Mario Porreca



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.

He also hosted his own live radio show for about three years which was also recorded and turned into a podcast with its own exclusive spin-off podcast.

In March of 2018 Mario launched 10 Minute Mindset and it became a massive success. It was not only receiving numerous downloads much faster than he expected, but he was receiving messages from listeners and creating impactful relationships with them.

His love for podcasting and the relationships and conversations created around it inspired the idea for LaunchingaPodcast.com.

Mario’s main focus is helping busy achievers use podcasting to expand their reach, grow their following, and serve more people at a more profound level.

Mario resides in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, with his girlfriend Erica and their puppy Waldo.

“Sharing ideas and creating unique experiences is my passion and purpose. It’s about making a few small strategic shifts in the way people think to create big changes.”

My Skills

After nearly 6 years of cooking professionally, authoring three books, speaking/cooking around the world, and 10 years of coaching personal clients I learned that our life and our results are created by our mindset.

I use food and cooking as a medium to speak all over the world and create a unique experience for any audience interested in aligning and creating the mindset and identity that will attract what they desire into their lives—they’ll also learn how to prepare some delicious food too.
