This interview right here is right up there as one of my favorites. I like it so much because it’s not so much about money, success or business. It’s really just 2 guys talking about life.
Chris Winters in a digital nomad entrepreneur. Listening to Chris’s story you’ll find that it’s not really so much a story about him as it is about all of us. He lived a largely unsuccessful life and dealt with alcohol addiction until he was 41 years old. It was at the point he entered a contest that completely transformed his life.
If you look at the pictures below you can see how much Chris changed his habits and his thought process. He says that the picture to the right is really just a lower version of himself. At his lowest point his wife left him taking along with her his 3 children. He found himself 3 months behind on his mortgage and in over $40,000 worth of credit card debt.
As Chris tells the story, “I was sitting home alone, unemployed and in debt, and trying to figure out what I was going to do with my life and I came across…somehow…a contest. It was a contest being run by Bill Phillips. Some of you may know Bill Phillips, and some of you may not. He is better known for ESA and the Transformation Contest.”
Bill Phillips is a bestselling author and billionaire. One of his bestselling books is Transformation. To make a long story short Chris actually winded up winning the contest along with the $50,000 cash prize.
This gave Chris a platform as he started speaking around the world a Bill Phillip’s Transformation events. This opportunity gave Chris access to some very financially successful people that opened his eyes to new possibilities.
He said that up until that point his life was headed nowhere. Meeting Bill Phillips wasn’t enough to change his life overnight. But it was enough to bump his life just a few degrees in a new direction.
Seeing that it was possible to create success for himself he then took on the next challenge which was creating financial success (he still didn’t have that piece of the puzzle figured out yet).
One day Chris came across an email from internet marketer Mike Koenig. He got sucked into the launch of one of Mike’s products which to him was an opportunity that just made perfect sense.
The cost of Mike Koenig’s program was $2000, the only thing is at the time Chris didn’t have the money.
On the last day of the launch Mike made a payment plan available. It turned out that Chris had just enough on one of his credit cards to make the first payment so he bought it.
