Chris’s Thoughts…

“The pursuit of wealth for wealth’s sake just becomes a compulsion and it’s not making us happier.”

“You can do good things for yourself and help people at the same time.”

“Helping others can help you help yourself.”

“Whatever success I have now is very closely related to those years of exploration and discovery and giving of myself.”

“I take complex concepts and turn them into a simple path.”

“You don’t have to live your life as others expect.”
