26 Jan DTD #56: Daniel Powell, an Ordinary Man Leading an Extraordinary Life
Daniel Powell is a San Diego local legend.
You might find him suited up as his alter-ego Captain Challenge while leading a flash mob dance party; spreading joy through his stand-up comedy; finishing a marathon in Antarctica with a sprained ankle and then doing an Iron Man a few days later (true story); or spending 10 days living on the most dangerous street corner in Chicago to contribute to the non-profit organization, Project H.O.O.D. which he’ll be doing a week from now.
Yes, Daniel Powell is an ordinary man leading an extraordinary life.
But if you asked him, he’d probably just tell you he’s having fun, cherishing another day on planet Earth.
As someone who beat cancer, he knows what it means to savor every second and to laugh his way through the darkest times. We could all benefit from this mentality right about now.
Daniel’s stories of adventure are wildly entertaining and his personal endeavors are beyond inspiring — this conversation will undoubtedly brighten your day and reignite your passion for life.
