    Discovering the Power of Purpose-Driven Living

    Embark on an inspiring journey of self-discovery as host Mark A. Turnipseed gives you a raw and in-depth look into his transformative experiences through the lens of purpose - from the spark ignited by Rick Warren’s ‘Purpose Driven Life’ to his own evolvement and transition into a person fueled by purpose.

    He then underscores the importance of proper nutrition, not by counting calories or macros, but through a concept he refers to as ”Purposeful Eating” - a diet based on purpose rather than measurements. This approach to diet and nutrition is drawn from his self-discovery journey during his fitness routines and Ayurvedic studies.

    Mark believes that the solution lies in knowing, understanding and loving ourselves better. When we prioritize self-love, only then can we manifest the greatness we aim for. With anecdotes from his own life, Mark encourages us to take up challenges, to step out of our comfort zone, to discover who we truly are and what our body and soul need for nourishment.
