Chris Yonker, Vision Alchemist and Executive Coach, on Creating a Vision that Fuels Your Purpose…

January 3, 2020

Ep #23 - Chris Yonker, a vision alchemist, executive coach, speaker, and author joins the show today to discuss how he helps entrepreneurs to create clear visions that align their businesses and lives.

 

Chris Yonker is a world-leading expert in Vision creation. He and his team work with companies (big and small) as well as high achievers like executives, entrepreneurs, athletes, and celebrities to get clarity on what they really want—and then make the strategy mindset and behavior shifts to create that.

 

Chris embraces a uniquely collaborative and experiential approach of being in the “zone,” developing clarity and composure under fire, and discovering unlimited potential.

 

As a seventh-degree black belt, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) Practitioner, and thought-leader on Personal Performance, Chris has built a refined strategy to create breakthrough results with clients who were unable to get a desired outcome with other consultants, coaches, and even therapists.

 

Chris combines this higher-power thinking with practical strategies that derive from his 21 years of experience of leading a sales team with a Fortune 500 company. As a seasoned veteran who has also worked with numerous mid-market business leaders from a variety of verticals, Chris has seen it all. His holistic approach aims to help improve the mindset, health, and communication of organizations from the top down.

 

Chris was the key driver behind a $6 million increase in revenue within one year for one business client, whose company’s year-over-year growth moved from 1.5% to 7%. The end result: an organization that is able to scale, retain valuable employees, and create a predictable client experience that is unparalleled.

 

As a highly sought-after speaker, Vision expert, and workshop facilitator, Chris’s programs are engineered to meet your demands and exceed your expectations. Chris is a regular contributor to the Coaches Council at Forbes.com and his book Soul Intention: An Executive’s Guide to Building a Life by Choice, Not by Chance is available on Amazon.

Ryan Tansom on Strategic Growth and Exit Plans for Businesses…

Ryan Tansom on Strategic Growth and Exit Plans for Businesses…

November 29, 2019

Ep #18 - My guest for this episode is Ryan Tansom, the podcast host of "Life After Business," a keynote speaker, investor, and the co-founder of Arkona and the GEXP Collaborative. After turning around his family's business, Ryan helped to sell it along with his father for over 8-figures in 2014. During this exit process, he learned a ton after making mistakes that left millions of dollars on the table.

 

Since that experience, Ryan has taken what he's learned and now helps other entrepreneurs to avoid these mistakes by guiding them to get clarity around what they want and control over how to get it. Ryan is dedicated to helping the business community and has devoted much of his life, since his company's sale, to figuring out ways to help owners understand the world of mergers and acquisitions. He wants business owners to realize what it means to grow and sell a company while enjoying the ride and being proud of how all the chips fall.

 

In today's interview, we dive into Ryan's story and touch on some of the exit strategies that he learned. If you'd like to go deep into creating a business growth and exit plan, I would suggest listening to Ryan's podcast called "Life After Business." Ryan created this podcast with the mission of leveling the playing field for entrepreneurs by bringing them all the information business buyers and top industry advisors already know. When you have this information at hand, you will be able to control your own exit.

Chris Davis, CEO of Automation Bridge on the Strategy and Execution of Multi-Million Dollar Sales Funnels

November 22, 2019

Ep #17 - My guest this week is Chris Davis, the CEO of Automation Bridge and an experienced builder of multi-million dollar online sales funnels. Chris' educational background is in Electrical Engineering which he credits as giving him a unique strength in his ability to systematize business processes. When he left his field of engineering to pursue online marketing, he noticed a perfect marriage between his systematization skill-set and existing automation software tools. 

 

Chris has worked with companies like LeadPages and Active Campaign to help them rapidly scale through marketing and education. In this interview, we discuss some of the strategies that Chris has employed with multi-million dollar sales funnel campaigns and how some of what worked before has already changed in the marketing space. Chris describes the process of automation as simply being leveraged technology. With leveraged technology, entrepreneurs can introduce consistency to their businesses and, with consistency, they are at the gateway to predictability.
