Purpose, Wellness, and Growth with Mark A. Turnipseed
Becoming a Coach

Fueled by the transformation I had achieved, I chose to diverge from the mental health realm and embarked on a new path encompassing several years of personal training and health and wellness coaching. I skillfully merged my mental health insights with newfound concepts from fitness and yoga, resulting in the creation of a unique and innovative program.


Coach turned CEO

My journey then led me to establish a thriving public speaking and coaching platform. Tim Quinn, a client, who had experienced substantial personal growth under my guidance, invited me to serve as a CEO and collaborate on his skincare venture. The shared mission—akin to my fitness and wellness vision—focused on helping individuals discover purpose, health, and satisfaction through integrated mind, body, and spiritual practices within the scope of a beauty ritual. This has fascinated me for the past two years.

Embracing the ebb and flow of life, I made the decision to temporarily suspend my coaching and speaking career to nurture and cultivate this new business endeavor. As our joint effort yielded remarkable achievements, I seized the opportunity to broaden my impact through a podcast while concurrently revitalizing my coaching practice with a fresh perspective.

Current Emphasis

While I remain dedicated to working with individuals, my current emphasis extends to fostering growth within businesses and forging partnerships that align with the transformative power of integrated mind, body, and spiritual practices.


My Individual Coaching Program is a blend of psychological

Mark Turnipseed's Bio
Mental Health Professional

After dedicating five years to the mental health profession in Montana, I found myself facing overwhelming personal mental health challenges. These struggles prompted me to step away from the industry and embark on a transformative journey of self-discovery.

Becoming a Best-Selling Author & Speaker

My quest was driven by a desire to unearth purpose, well-being, and contentment—subjects that had remained foreign to me until then. In the midst of this journey to reclaim my own vitality, I documented my experiences through a blog that later evolved into a bestselling book, garnering widespread acclaim and even reaching the coveted #1 spot on Amazon's bestseller list.

The book intimately chronicles my early life, revealing how trauma significantly shaped my worldview and led to my eventual battles with suicide. Through resilience and self-discovery, I managed to redeem myself by uncovering purpose, health, and satisfaction via an array of holistic practices spanning mind, body, and spirit.
