The cards of life were stacked against him but Mark preserved against all odds.
Mark Crandall began his personal journey of introspection in 2004. At age 3, Mark was taken from his biological mother by the Department of Youth and Families and placed in the foster care system. The cards of life were stacked against him; around age 12 he began contemplating whether or not to just give up. His biological parents were in and out of his life with no consistency and this caused Mark to create many stories and shattered what was left of his self-worth.
In early childhood, Mark’s behavior stood out in the eyes of others as not being “normal”. He began to engage in criminal activity and act out his aggression at the expense of others, and society. Years of counseling and various combinations of medications could not correct the feelings of inadequacy and separation within. Mark began to self-medicate and thus began his substance abuse. It was a long painful road for Mark and those that surrounded him. Mark was in and out of youth detention centers and other correctional facilities. Even in his lowest moments, Mark found himself surrounded by individuals who saw greatness in him.
In 2007, Mark found a spiritual program of action in which he began overcoming the many traumatic moments of his childhood. He also began the process of repairing the damage that he had caused others through his efforts to navigate life. Through introspection, Mark found freedom in a process that he uses within his Transformational Life and Business Coaching, and drug and alcohol Interventions. Mark has trained in some of the most powerful transformation practices which he uses in his work with others.
With truth as a foundation, greatness can become the future for anyone.
Mark has re-written the story of his life and has dedicated his life to empowering others to accomplish the same. Mark has obtained a Masters Degree in Social Work (MSW) and became a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor (LCDC) and Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW). Mark spent 7 years working with disadvantaged youth and providing individual and family counseling. He has conducted many successful Interventions for families in his work and mastered the art of Transformational Life and Business Coaching. Mark is a master of conducting interventions and empowering the client being intervened on and the family of the loved one to heal from drug addiction.
Mark’s success as an entrepreneur has made him a highly sought after Transformational Life and Business Coach. He and his elite staff of Transformational Life and Business Coaches do not believe that anyone lacks motivation. What they lack is vision. With a vision and the proper mindset anything is attainable. Mark has proven this by building a 6-figure company within 5 months of its start, writing his memoir Eulogy of Childhood Memories, leading corporate workshops, and doing paid motivational speaking events. All of these were once a dream for Mark, now a reality. Mark’s greatest accomplishment is his natural ability to bring out the greatness within all of his clients and guide them as they achieve their dreams.
