Successful people see and do things differently. If you want to achieve big goals, you have to stop majoring in minor things, and elevate your vision to a higher level. Chris is on a mission to help entrepreneurs and high achievers do just this!

In this episode, Chris shares what he’s learned from working with billionaires, and what they do differently. We also discuss how to make your dream life your real life (hint: not by thinking small), and immediate steps you can implement to set yourself on a more direct path to get there! Chris and Hanna Hermanson even dive into some of the coaching and mentorship they have personally exchanged and benefited from.
