Confessions of a multi-passionate entrepreneur with Chris Warnes
Apr 20, 2020 Episode 18
Sasha Korobov

As the modern-day philosopher, Samuel L. Jackson, says in the cinematic treasure Jurassic Park – hold on to your butts.

Today, I get to speak with multi-passionate, seven-figure entrepreneur, Chris Warnes.  Chris started his journey right after his service in the U.S. Military, and runs businesses in health and fitness, timepieces, real estate, and business consulting.

  • Why he leads with service first
  • How he started as one of the original Instagram influencers
  • How he engages his customers to drive his every move
  • That time he hit his low, lost his fortune, and had fallen into a deep depression – only to get back on top
  • How he had to learn humility and empathy over and over again
  • Why most people can’t see past their egos
  • Why his time freedom is his most important asset as an entrepreneur
  • His paralyzing fear around telling his friends and family when he became wealthy, what he did to hide it, and the relationships that he had to let go of.

If you find yourself getting frustrated by setbacks in your business, you will want to save this episode and listen to it a few times.  Chris’ journey is amazing and I dare you to not be inspired by his generosity in sharing all of his lessons with you. There are so many truth bombs in this episode.  And also – many f-bombs.  If you have tiny humans running around, there is definitely a lot of salty language in this episode so you may want to throw on your headphones.  And then sit back and enjoy the wild ride that it this fascinating, thrilling conversation.
