Chris Connell

In this episode, I talk to Actor/Producer/Fitness Model Chris Connell. Chris has been one of my go-to people for when I need to push through fear and accomplish goals. He’s achieved financial freedom doing exactly what he loves and is, as he famously calls it, “Living his life by design.” In this episode, he’ll share with you how he does just that, what mentality he’s trained himself to have, and how he’s become resilient in tackling the next challenging wave life throws at him.

“I know I’m a prouder person of who I am right now in this day because of this journey that I chose. And it wasn’t the easy path. It was tough path and I knew that this wasn’t an accident. I was aware of this a very early age. I knew what I was going to be up against.“
