“We cannot solve problems at the same level of thinking that we were at when we created those problems.”

Ten-Percenter

Let’s face it. If you’re on this page, then you’ve already part of a very small group of people. You're already doing multi-seven figures in revenue.

You’re looking for answers to six figure problems. You know that “scared money don't make money”. You’ve seen Chris in action, watched a video, listened to a podcast, or read something he’s written and implemented it—and seen the results firsthand, and thought 'This stuff works!'

Back to the future

How many times have you said to yourself, “If the Futur existed when you first started years ago, you’d be in a whole different place today”? What you decide to do today, shapes what will happen tomorrow. Are there challenges in your business where once solved, would lead to radically different outcomes?

You don’t need to wonder anymore. This is your opportunity. But don’t delay, because there will only be 100 slots available. After which, it’s a $10k deposit to be placed on the waitlist.

You have questions. We have answers.

Each week, Chris will host a 90 min “open agenda” call. One at a time, he will work through your specific challenges and give you contextually relevant answers. No getting lost in the shuffle. No generic, cookie-cutter answers. Straight, practical advice, built on years of first hand experience.

You’re just 7 days away from getting on a Zoom call and getting the answers you need.

Ring ring. Your future is calling. What will you do?

“Time is our most valuable non-renewable resource.”

—Albert-László Barabási

What’s the real cost of: doing nothing, going down the wrong path, figuring it out on you own, or worst yet, not making a decision?

How much money are you leaving on the table because of the unknown unknowns?

If a silver bullet could instantly solve one of your most complex problems, how would you and your business be transformed?

How would this make your other goals easier or unnecessary?

There are 3 constants in life: “Pain, Uncertainty and Constant Work.” —Dr. Stutz

First we were winning… then we hit a ceiling

Four years out of school, I had blown past every creative and financial goal I had set.

Then, something unexpected happened. We hit a financial ceiling. Whereas it was relatively easy to close jobs south of $200k, our close rate dropped precipitously once jobs edged north of $200k.

No matter what we tried, the results were the same. It was demoralizing to myself and the team. We tried doubling our efforts, created twice as many ideas, and spent even more money on new business pitches. Nothing.

My confidence waned. Was this it? Had we hit our peak? What were we missing?

The power of one small change

We expect that seismic, paradigm-shifting concepts create the most change, but it’s actually the small tweaks that takes someone from being pro to world-class.

It’s a lesson I learned from my late business coach— Keir McLaren. It took two coaching sessions before I learned that my sales approach was all wrong. It seems obvious, but Keir taught me how to say what I think and ask better questions. He challenged my assumptions of what I thought I was “allowed” to ask during a new business call.

When I applied what Keir taught me, my close ratio for $300k+ jobs more than tripled: from 20% to over 70%. As a result, our company grew from $2.2m to $3.9m in revenue in the first year. Two coaching sessions led to almost $2m in new revenue! What I learned was teachable and repeatable. This was in 2000 and the last time we ever earned that little again.

I continued working with Keir for the next 13+ years, during which I reinvented myself and my business many times over. Keir taught me so much about: leadership, communication, management, and sales. When I applied what he taught, I smashed even more barriers and grew in confidence.

Think big. Be brave. Take action.

Theory is lonely. It loves practice. Don’t keep them apart.
“Calm seas never made a good sailor.”—Franklin D. Roosevelt. The magic happens in the doing, not the hopeful thinking.

Since my days with Keir, I have gone on to run two eight-figure businesses, win an Emmy™, deliver keynote talks at international events, grow a massive social following, write a book, run workshops and give talks to Fortune 500 companies (Adobe, State Farm, Hulu), and mentor hundreds of entrepreneurs.

Now, I’m ready to help you unlock your true potential, do work that is meaningful, make an impact, be a sought after expert and no longer compete on price. Join me and the 99 other Master/Mind cohort.

Compound Effect

Massive change begins with making small, smart decisions, followed by action, applied consistently over time—a snowflake turns into an avalanche. If one smart decision led me here, imagine what it could do for you.

That’s why I’ve opened my Master/Mind to the first 100, qualified entrepreneurs. Are you ready to level up your business?

Proof

I’ve worked with hundreds of entrepreneurs just like you, who have been able to exponentially grow their businesses, scale their team, and learn how to deal with difficult clients. But you don’t have to take my word for it. Here are the receipts…

Testimonials

02
“Chris’ coaching and expertise is easily worth $10,000/hour.”
In the two years we have worked together, I've:
  • Made over $500,000 a year from my design business while working 15 hours a week.
  • Grown my following from ZERO to over 100,000.
  • Launched a six-figure online course from scratch.
Chris is an incredible mentor, a powerful coach, and a generous friend. I can't recommend him enough.
“$1m in revenue. 50% profit margin”

It's been 4 years already since I came for consulting…

  • Business is going great
  • Working with big companies like Starbucks and Kimberly-Clark
  • Close to $1M in revenue
  • More than 50% in profit

So, we've been improving slowly but constantly year by year. Can't thank you enough for all the help and content.

“You will see a difference and it will have an impactful change on your business outlook.”

In December of 2021, I had my first 1:1 coaching session with Chris. Chris reframed:

  • How we think about our ideal client
  • Value proposition
  • Processes
  • Marketing strategies
  • Price structure.

By carefully following Chris’s instructions and executing his advice our company has grown by 61% YOY. Chris helps open the doors of discovery and allows you to uncover the roadblocks. His uncanny ability to ask insightful questions and pull-out creative thoughts helps one to navigate a road map that is both productive and achievable.

“I won two new contracts since... and I believe more will come soon.”

Chris brought new perspectives I did not have:

  • Building a personal brand
  • Sowing a seed of doubt into the audience creates curiosity and potential leads.
  • Having confidence in my pricing and positioning of the services.
  • Doing market research to find the niches I want to pursue for a long time.

I won two new contracts since speaking to him and I believe more will come soon.

“My revenue increased by 50% without having to add any clients”

I was lost about how to get recognized in my new niche. Chris gave me the clarity and direction I needed - focus on content creation, raise my rate, and delegate. In less than a year:

  1. I reached 9.5K followers on LinkedIn (9X growth) and 19.6K followers on Instagram (19X growth);
  2. My revenue increased by 50% without having added any clients
  3. I hired a full-time designer — all because of his coaching!

“Even my family and friends have noticed a change, an evolution, in the way I think, solve, and communicate”

Chris said his job was to help us see the matrix code, and he did EXACTLY that. Everything has become so crystal clear that even my family and friends have noticed a change, an evolution, in the way I think, solve, and communicate.

Thank you again... 1000x over. Business has been great and I'm consistently pushing myself into uncomfortable territory.

“Everything is possible with Chris’ coaching and guidance”

Chris is more than a great business coach. He helps me see my true self, find my voice, and guide me on the road to self acceptance.

With Chris as my coach I've reached goals I never thought were possible. Like a six-figure course launch, getting 100K followers on Instagram, and starting my own community. I also managed to do $100K+ in profit my first year in my new business, all thanks to Chris.

“Are you keeping your goals so small to make them easier to accomplish on your own?”

—Dan Sullivan

When you’re stuck, don’t ask how. Ask, “Who can help me do this?”

Who can introduce me to a partner to expand my service offerings?

Who can guide me through a tough negotiation?

Who can show me how to break down my limiting beliefs?

Who can teach me how to become a natural born seller?

Who can help me build a strong personal brand and grow my authority?

Who. Not how.
Who. Not how.
Who. Not how.
Who. Not how.
Who. Not how.
Who. Not how.
Who. Not how.

More of the same will get you
more of the same.

You don’t know what you don’t know.

Looking at your business from inside the jar won’t allow you to see the small changes that need to be made to blast through your barriers and achieve maximum business momentum.

You need a group of like-minded entrepreneurs who will identify your cracks and offer tactics to fill them. You need to get out of your own head and let others help identify your business opportunities for you so you can take action. You need a wider group of “who can help do this?” in your corner.

Sometimes it takes a kick in the pants.

It’s easy to take the road often traveled. To Netflix-n-chill when the day gets rough. To keep going down the path of mediocre business results. It’s hard to find the internal drive to do the hard work that needs to be done to achieve your vision.

But if all this was easy, you wouldn’t be here.

So show up. Take action. And get the external kick in the pants you need to get going in your business with weekly coaching and group accountability.

Because in Master/Mind there are no excuses. There’s no not showing up. There’s only action. Even if it’s just small steps, week after week.

Ready. Set. Done. Won.

Small actions sound easy. But they still require continual action.

As Teddy Roosevelt would say, you’re either in the arena or you’re not. Join us.

With your enrollment in Master/Mind, and scheduled weekly calls, your business lifeline is just four business days away.

Are you ready to take action?

Are you the type of person with a bias towards taking action, leaping before you look, and prefer apologies over regrets? Or are you the cover-all-bases, devil’s-advocate, risk-averse type?

The latter need not apply. 100 slots are open. When it’s full, it’s full.
