Who is Zander Sprague?

Everyone has epic things they want to do in their life. For Zander Sprague, he wanted to be a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor. So he worked on that goal by getting his master’s in mental health and had to finish a whopping 3000 hours of internship.

After finally finishing his internship in February of 2020, he was all set to take his licensing exam. He was ready to go out and speak to the crowd on his thoughts and experiences. But then, the pandemic hit.

As we were all stuck indoors waiting for the pandemic to be over, Zander got an epiphany, and he decided to act on it.

“I had this epiphany that EPIC begins with one step forward. And as I looked into my own life, I said that is so true. I am so lucky to do so many epic things and each of those started with one step forward. And I am just so excited to help other people and businesses realize that they can have their Epic. They just need a plan to achieve it.”  – Zander Sprague

How to Take the First Step

When asked on how one can take that first step, Zander says that we can only do one thing at a time. So in order to go for that first step, we need to realize and focus on one thing at a time.

“The fact of the matter is, we can only really do one thing well at a time. I also really think that where we have structure, there’s comfort, in that we understand what we need to do.“ – Zander Sprague

Losing a Sibling

Zander talks about losing a sibling, how it has affected him, and how he still managed to live an epic life despite all that. Zander’s sister passed away 25 years ago, and it was something that devastated Zander and his family.

“It was devastating and not something that I expected to ever go through. However, I chose my own positive pathway through that in the last quarter century. And not only myself, but my family has done lots of things to celebrate Lucy’s – the rainbow that was her life, and do great things in her name.” – Zander Sprague

Zander shares that it was very gratifying to do things in her memory. He explains that he has written his books to help other sibling survivors, not only to cope with one’s loss, but to celebrate their sibling’s life and live their own life to the best they could.
