International Transformation and Empowerment Ambassador, Keynote Speaker and Best Selling Author
My mission is to empower you to transform your life and business so you can achieve all that you desire by teaching you to understand how you are wired.
Ask yourself the following questions…
- Does it seem like you are running uphill?
- Does it feel like you are running against the wind?
- Does it feel like nobody understands you?
- Does it feel like it takes you twice as long as it should to do something?
- Do you almost always feel tired at the end of each day?
- Do you dread waking up in the morning?
- Do you day dream about being somewhere else?
- Do you day dream about doing something else?
If you answered “YES” to any of the above questions, then I have a solution that will help you. Before we get to it, please keep reading and see if you fit into one of the three groups of people I work with.
Before I get into the three groups, let me answer the most common question I am asked, “Why don’t you focus on one group rather than working with three groups?”
The answer is simple – I am an entrepreneur (group #1) who has owned or managed multiple small to medium-sized businesses (group #2) and experienced two layoffs a few years back that led me to almost be a 99-weeker (group #3). So, you see, I am wired and passionate about helping these three groups because I am familiar with each and have enough experience with each group to make a difference in those people’s lives.
Here are more details on each of the three groups I work with.
Group #1: Entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs have a unique challenge. Most entrepreneurs need to be everything to their business, or at least they think they do. This leads to overwhelm, overload and being over stressed which in-turn leads to damaged personal and business relationships, loss of sleep, loss of revenue and potentially loss of the business and/or (in extreme cases) a failed marriage. What most entrepreneurs don’t realize is that, if they committed to focus on doing things they were wired to do and found a way to delegate everything else, they would be less stressed and see higher profit margins.
Group #2: Small to medium-sized Businesses. The challenge facing most small to medium-sized business is profit growth. Forget the top line it’s the bottom line that matters. What makes this difficult (and what many business owners don’t understand) is that, having the wrong person doing a job is worse than having nobody doing it. When I say wrong person, what I mean is someone who is doing a job they weren’t wired to do.
Group #3: Unemployed and underemployed individuals. What many people who are unemployed or underemployed don’t realize is that, being in the situation they are in may be a sign from God (the Grand Overall Designer) that they weren’t doing what they were wired to do in their last job. Sometimes, all people need is the proverbial 2×4 to the head (i.e. getting laid off) to realize that they aren’t doing what they are wired to do. I know it was this way for me and for countless others that I have coached and mentored.
After reading this far, most people ask me, “Chris, what are the options to work with you?” Here they are…
Keynote, lunch-and-learn and workshop speaking engagements: I bring my signature talk to your business, networking group, organization, meetup group or anywhere you can assemble a group of people. If you provide the audience, I’m there.
Online courses: I offer a number of virtual courses that are a combination of teaching, Q&A and group mentoring/coaching. These are great for people who want to get their feet wet and understand exactly what it’s like to learn from me.
Mastermind Groups: I run a limited number of more advanced mastermind groups where action-takers and people wanting to collaborate with top-tier individuals and companies get together (usually virtually) to share ideas, learn new things and turn things up to 11!
Mentoring and coaching: For those who are super-committed to their success, I have a limited number of spots I reserve for high-level coaching and mentoring clients. This is for those of you want direct access to me and who want to put a super-charger on your goals and make things happen now!
If you’re still reading, something above must have resonated with you. Wonderful! You’re next steps are as follows…
If you are the type who likes personal, direct attention, go to http://chrismsprague/fitandstrategysignup to reach out to me to setup a free, no obligation Fit and Strategy Session. The goal of this session is to take 30 minutes to get to know each other and determine if you fit into the model of someone who would benefit from what I have to offer and if I am a fit to help you.
If you are the type who is more comfortable in a group setting or listening in to a conference call, webcast, etc., go to http://chrismsprague.com/freesessionsignup to sign-up for an upcoming free teaching and Q&A call.
As one of my mentors Les Brown says, “Step into your greatness”. After studying people, how they act, how they behave, what drives them and many other things over the past 25+ years, I am convinced that the way to do this is to understand how you are wired.
Another one of my mentors John C. Maxwell says, “You have to give up to go up”. In this case, all you’re giving up is a small amount of time in exchange for some possibly life-changing information.
Thanks for taking your valuable time to read this and I look forward to hearing from you soon. All my best, Chris
P.S. While mine is the common spelling of Chris, some other spellings people have tried are Kris, Christian, Christopher, and because sometimes I can have a bit of a higher pitched voice, Kristin, Kristen, Christine. My last name isn’t so easy. It’s been spelled Sprayg, Sprauge, Sprage, Sparge and Sprag. No matter, however you spell it, I’m here to help
