Meet Bruce Van Horn ~


Bruce Van Horn radiates passion and love for life and people! He is walking, talking proof that you can change your life by changing your thoughts. He loves sharing his story with the world because he knows that you can transform your mind and create the life you want, rather than just accepting the life you get. He brings his high-energy, yet calming, reassuring voice and physical presence to live audiences of all kinds and sizes. Through his “Life Is A Marathon” podcast, Bruce speaks to an audience of thousands of people every day, from over 178 countries across the globe, delivering a message of hope, encouragement, and inspiration by sharing practical, insightful wisdom to help you not just survive, but to thrive at this marathon called “Life!”


Bruce is a father, best-selling author, Life Coach, speaker, entrepreneur, business owner, marathon runner, and cancer survivor. Bruce’s life story is one of completely losing sight of his passion and purpose through his early adult life by pursing happiness and fulfillment through career success and material things. After many personal and professional setbacks, including filing Bankruptcy twice, and experiencing the death of his daughter, Bruce had given up on life and was just going through motions without purpose or direction. He says, “In my mid-40s, I came to a place where I need to decide what to do. I hated my life and couldn’t live like this any longer. I needed to either end my life or completely change it!” Bruce chose to change his life and his world is completely different because of those changes!


As others noticed the changes Bruce was making in his life, they asked him what he was doing and how they could make the same changes. Through this, Bruce began writing and speaking about his personal transformation. Taking his message to the world through social media, Bruce’s message has resonated with hundreds of thousands of people. He currently has over 340,000 Twitter followers, is ReTweeted thousands of times every day, and is followed by some of the biggest names in the business, leadership, family and parenting, sports, and entertainment industries.


While there are many topics about which Bruce is passionate, all of his presentations are customized to the needs and desires of his host and audience. You will never hear the same presentation from Bruce more than once!
