Hello Tracy and mark!
My dad was a pastor and cheated on my mom.
She committed suicide.
He died of cancer.
We all face challenges. What we do with them determines who we become.
The story of your life is being written every day whether you know it or not. The question is, who’s in control of it? There’s a good chance your story has been written without you having much say in the matter! However, what’s happened in the past doesn’t have to define the future. You can determine how the rest of your story reads!
Life rarely gives us what we hope for; however, I believe we have two choices. The first is to let circumstances define us, the second is to do exactly the opposite. I believe you can take control of your life no matter what your “everyday” looks like.
Chris Capehart is the author of Step: Pursuing Your Dreams in the Midst of Everyday Life, Life Story: A Step-by-Step Guide to Creating the Life You’ve Always Wanted, The “Blank” Leader: An In-Depth Guide to Becoming a Thriving Leader, The Intentional Year: A Year Dedicated to Making You Unstoppable, Shaping Belief and #Goals.
While writing Step, Chris served as CMO at Oven Bits where he drove over 100% growth adding millions in revenue and helping to produce 20+ features in the Apple and Google app stores. This was done in partnership with brands such as L’Oréal, Lush Cosmetics, Hilton, and Vogue.
Chris' childhood was anything but typical. Instead of the usual after school activities Chris spent his free time working in the family “startup” business. That startup went on to gross over 200 million dollars. Chris got the education of lifetime before he had even started high school.

Through the exhilarating heights of hard-earned success to the lows of disappointing failures, Chris has learned a handful of key principles that have helped him defeat the odds. He’s now on a mission to teach people of all walks of life how they can do the same and defeat the odds no matter what their “everyday life” looks like.

“Is that Possible?”

A person and their dreams...
A business and its objectives...
An organization and its mission...
Chris shatters the illusion the mile projects in our heads by practical advice on how to look at the mile in a different way. Audiences walk away from this talk ready to take immediate action in their lives, businesses, and organizations.
