Mark Crandall

Long before Mark Crandall became a member of the Quantum Leap Mastermind program that I recently told you about, he was a lost young man with countless traumatic experiences. He spent time in jail, was a drug addict, and carried an underlying self-hatred. 

He’s since transcended his adversity and become keynote speaker, licensed master social worker, chemical dependency counselor, clinical interventionist, the author of Embrace Your Past, Win Your Future, host of two podcasts, and a highly sought after clinical interventionist. 

At our last Quantum Leap Mastermind (QLM) retreat, I saw Mark do powerful, transformative work in real time, and it’s truly an honor to introduce you to him.

Today, he joins the podcast to share how he uses his life to hold a mirror up to those who need it the most. He also shares the belief system he uses to find opportunities to do more, and what you can do to leverage your trauma to live a life in service.


  • How Mark’s traumatic childhood led him to addiction, prison, and homelessness – and the ONE book that began to transform his life. 
  • What Mark believes holds people back from achieving their goals, why no one truly lacks motivation, and why most people lack the belief in themselves to finish things. 
  • The power of using others’ words as a springboard for deep, introspective work.
  • Why Mark still takes value from a particular “daily practice” and why he isn’t militant about it.

The power of personal development work. The power of going within and doing introspective work, to overcome limiting beliefs so that you can achieve what it is that you want to achieve. In that moment my life changed.” – Mark Crandall[/ctt]
