Mark Crandall, LMSW, LCDC, is a transformational life and business coach, workshop facilitator, keynote speaker, author of Eulogy of Childhood Memories, and the host of Purpose Chasers Podcast.

Mark went from a lost boy with countless traumatic experiences to drug addiction, prison, and an undying self-hatred to a highly sought after motivational speaker, transformational life and business coach, founder of the Purpose Chasers Academy, and he leads life-changing workshops where he empowers others to break free from their limiting beliefs towards creating the lives of their dreams.

In Part One of Embrace Your Past, Win Your Future, Mark shares his story of enduring childhood abuse, trauma, drug addiction, homelessness, and years of incarceration, Mark learned to turn his victimhood into victory. He studied his and other mindset masters’ means of harnessing the now. Mark has grown out of pain through a continual process of awareness, dialogue shifts, and transformation. This is the process that Mark teaches audiences through authentic storytelling and engaging group work, so that they can integrate hope, resiliency, and a mindset of abundance into their daily lives.

This is an extremely powerful story of Mark’s hardships and tragedies of childhood and early adulthood! He was close to death 3-4 times and lucky to be alive to tell his story. I admire his honesty and authenticity! It’s a perfect book...you get his story followed by the lessons learned and actually shows you how to change your mindset along with using your past as fuel your success! A MUST READ if you want to embrace your past and win your future.

Engaging, insightful, heartfelt

There are books that we read and then stack on the shelf in tribute. They are books we read and just throw away afterwards. Passing them on to the next reader. “Embrace your past win your future“ is not one of those books. This isa book that I will read agin- it goes into my annual library because of its ability to cut through all of the BS, reframe the stories I have created about my life.

Truly Transparent, Transformative and Authentic

To hear his authentic story from the beginning, the circumstances that led him to play the victim. How he turned his obstacles into the fuel he needed to overcome his past and help so many people! Who is better to understand and help than someone who has been through the trenches. The bonus is the 2nd part of the book where he teaches you step by step how to overcome being the victim. Amazing book

Ready to be fully engaged and see yourself in the mirror?

Mark's story had me on the edge of my seat wondering "Holy crap when is this guy going to get to the transformation part, this can't get worse!" I feel like I have a completely different understanding of what it means to be an addicted person. I get to appreciate what my partner has survived a lot more than I did prior. Part 2 gave me a kick in the ass to realize I'm playing small due to a lot of fear. Excited to fully step out of victim mode and play way bigger. Thanks Mark!

Incredible story of overcoming overwhelming odds

I've known addicts in my life but have never understood their circumstances. Probably because none of them understand it with the introspection, intelligence or clarity that Mark has. Walking you through his life you are right there in his torment and agony, as well as the child like joy when meeting his wife. He then walks you through the very specific steps and exercises he himself used to overcome his very powerful self hatred and self loathing to become an incredibly powerful force for change in society. Anyone wanting to live themselves or forgive themselves and step off the ledge needs to read this! It will change your life!
