Zephan Moses Blaxberg is the Founder and Host of the iTunes “New & Noteworthy” acclaimed Year Of Purpose Podcast, where he interviews motivators and inspirational individuals from all over the world who are living life on their own terms. He is one of the top authorities and mentors to those who are tired of living a mediocre life. Zephan has held every job in the book -- from pastry chef to working at an Apple Store Genius Bar. He even founded a highly successful video production company that landed him opportunities in the White House and on set of the Netflix Series “House of Cards”. His videos can be seen in football stadiums and on major TV stations across the United States. After realizing that there was more to life than settling for the script that had been handed down to him, he took a two-month hiatus from life to couch-surf and “travel hack” his way around America. When he got back, the Year Of Purpose was born. Since then he has dedicated his life to empowering others to discover what makes them tick and how they can lead a Life Re-Scripted. Zephan now mentors his peers to discover their purpose in less time so that they can live the dream life they’ve always wanted.
