Marcus Jones: Kitchen Talker to Mountain Walker

Season 3, Episode 140,   Nov 20, 2023, 04:00 AM

This week we welcome Transformation Coach Marcus Jones onto the podcast, who shares his own sobriety story with us in the hope of helping other men who are currently in a similar situation to where he was pre-pandemic.

Following the breakdown of his marriage, Marcus found that he turned to alcohol and substance abuse to help him cope. Far from giving him comfort though, he found that in the longterm that the alcohol was in fact the problem.

Marcus provides yet more quotes for Ben's board, including this corker: "where attention goes, energy flows and results show" - plenty more where that came from in this episode so get stuck in. 

Follow Marcus on Instagram @marcusjonescoaching or join the 'Men And Their Emotions' (M.A.T.E) group on Facebook.
