Welcome to the Purpose Chasers ® Podcast I’m your host Mark Crandall. In 2015 I left my career as a therapist to use my drug-addicted criminal past coupled with a traumatic childhood to help 1000s of individuals just like you reinvent themselves.

I was tired of dreading my day-to-day life. I was working unfulfilling jobs, wasting time playing video games, binging on tv, just trying to get my mind off of the fact that I had a calling to do more, to be more. For years I wanted to write a book, to become a speaker, and to empower others to achieve their dreams. In 2016 I took a stand. I invite you to do the same.

Purpose Chasers ® it is time to take a stand. As Purpose Chasers ® we refuse to settle for average, we chase our dreams, accomplish our goals and support, encourage and challenge our community to create the lives we want to live.

Why have we Purpose Chasers ® taken this stand? “Because life is too short to not live fulfilled”

I want to thank you for being a part of the Purpose Chasers ® community and invite you to seek the support that allowed me to take my stand towards creating the life of my dreams. I invite you to join our Purpose Chasers ® community on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/thePurposechasers

    Hustle is a phenomenal tool to use when working towards our goals and chasing after our purpose. But, hustle isn’t the only tool that we should have readily available. In some seasons of life, hustle isn’t sustainable for our transformative growth. In fact, hustle can’t actually stunt our potential growth if we aren’t careful. Our guest this week shares his incredible insight on how we can utilize other strengths to find a deeper meaning.

    In today’s episode, I am talking with a third-time-returning guest, Rick Alexander. Rick is an author, speaker, and educator who specializes in helping individuals and organizations understand themselves better so that they can; increase performance, find meaning in their work and build a life that is in alignment with their ultimate goals. As a former member of the Naval special operations community as well as ultra-endurance athlete, Rick crafts content to help lead people through adversity and into a life of meaning. 
     
    Join us this week as we dive into what it means to truly slow down, go deeper within, and to discover yourself along the way.


    Topics Discussed:


    Overcoming imposter syndrome  Pivoting and finding a new way in the world from a new perspective  Understanding spirituality and how it helps us see past our biases Making sense of the transformative process Why “less is more” and how to get the most out of life Understanding Hustle as a season Why we need to slow down and be more methodical  Understanding the beauty in simplicity  Different aspects of growth and how to keep growing How to play the hero of your own life Why we need to know ourselves on a deeper level

    Ep. 87: Danielle McGinnis - Human Healing and Optimization

    Have you ever wondered how masculinity and femininity play a role in our lives? Have you ever wondered how self-awareness, discipline, and self-discovery impact how we show up in our lives? The truth is, in order to have a massive transformation, we need to learn how to go within and truly evaluate ourselves. Our guest this week walks us through how to achieve self-awareness through introspection and contemplation. 
    In today’s episode, I am talking with Danielle McGinnis, owner, and founder of AlphaFemme. Danielle is a Doctor of Physical Therapy who focuses on strength and conditioning as well as personal development through holistic health and wellness. Danielle shares with us that she believes each and every person is capable of reaching their personal goals if he or she is appropriately aligned with their vision and purpose. As she walks us through her own transformation, we learn the importance of objectivity, shadow work, and spirituality and how they play a role in how we show up in the world.
    Join us this week as we tap into the different roles of masculinity & femininity and how to lead from the heart. 
     
    Topics Discussed:

    The beauty of the masculinity and femininity roles in relationships Building a bridge between masculine and feminine energy Gaining massive objectivity and unaltered perspective How to strip away old realities to gain a new objective Why we need to create authentic content  The power of inner focus and shadow work The number ONE thing influencers in transformation space are missing How ego deaths create alignment with who we’re called to be Truly discovering yourself and connecting with God Connect with Mark Crandall

    Ep. 86:Sense of Accomplishment -The Greatest Coaching Session I've Been on the Receiving End of

    Sometimes trials can lead to our greatest triumphs. What may seem like a holding pattern may just be the road to your success. After weeks of feeling stressed out and pulled into different directions, I have finally found an inner peace that has led to making some powerful decisions in my business. If you feel a huge shift coming to your business and your personal life, then you are not alone.


    In today’s episode, I am sharing the best piece of advice that my mentor recently spoke into me that shifted my focus for Purpose Chasers. As I’ve realized the different stipulations I was putting on myself, I had been really stressed and felt stretched thin. COVID-19 has taught us a lot of things but one thing that I’ve really pressed into lately is that this has been a huge blessing for me to go inward and do the necessary groundwork. And I can’t wait to share this new season with you. 
     
    Purpose Chasers, are you ready to level? Because the time is NOW to step into our greatest callings.


    Topics Discussed:


    Why I feel more distressed & accomplished than I ever have Using COVID-19 as an opportunity to for introspective focus The new season & direction of Purpose Chasers

I love how Mark is not afraid to say what he really thinks! This makes every episode so much more valuable because he drops REAL knowledge. This is for people who are ready to take action and learn from someone who has actually succeeded and built an enormous business. Mark you are so inspiring thank you for sharing your story!
