“Conquering Your Confidence”

Ten Distinctive Confidence Building Steps to a Successful Personal and Business life!


Step #1 Recognize what you’ve already accomplished

Self-Confidence is the foundation for everything that’s needed to enjoy a productive, successful personal and business life. Studies suggest Self-Confidence is more important romantically than physical attractiveness. Nothing is more necessary, yet so many of us struggle to find and nurture it.


Through storytelling about his twenty-five years as a speaker, independent filmmaker and video producer as well as his personal experiences battling cancer and the micro-premature birth of his baby Hannah, (weighing 1 Lb. 9 Oz’s) Chris shows your audience the value of recognizing what they’ve already accomplished in order to boost self-confidence NOW! When folks simply grasp what they’ve already achieved it builds character and confidence to realize they can accomplish more than they ever imagined. It’s the classic snowball affect. With every accomplishment we build a deeper foundation of self-confidence and that translates into a better performance in everything we do. With his messages Chris will leave you and your team encouraged, laughing and laser-focused!
