Marcus Aurelius Anderson

Marcus is a prolific speaker and thought leader, bringing a new voice to a generation desperately seeking understanding, perspective, and wisdom. His keynotes have been forged by the fire of experience, giving Marcus the unique opportunity to translate life’s toughest problems into practical applications. His insight is universal, allowing him to reach across a multitude of demographics. A few of his key notes include The Gift of Adversity, Innovative Leadership, and Functional Philosophy.

Buckle up for a story a lifetime in the making. The Gift of Adversity is Marcus’ own personal journey through a life changing injury that left him paralyzed from the neck down. Suffering is a motif we can all relate to; but the timeless lessons learned and applied in realtime will leave you inspired to take advantage of the mindhacks Marcus discovered while in the midst of Adversity.

Experience the dialogue of modern stoicism, Zen, and other warrior mindsets and unlock the secret to applying them to everyday life and business.
