Chris Widener is a popular speaker and writer as well as the President of Made for Success and Extraordinary Leaders, two companies helping individuals and organizations turn their potential into performance, succeed in every area of their lives and achieve their dreams.
Chris is an example of how anyone can overcome any odds to achieve a successful life and help others achieve the same. Chris has overcome many obstacles...living through his father dying suddenly when he was four, being sent away from his family to live with relatives at age nine and becoming involved with drugs and alcohol by the age of twelve. Chris overcame those obstacles and has for the last ten years worked with some of the most financially successful families in America, helping them to achieve both personally and professionally. Now he can do the same for you!
On April 17, 2007 Random House Books re-launched Chris' book, The Angel Inside. It hit the #1 business book on Amazon, it ALSO hit the #3 overall spot (only behind Harry Potter and J.R.R. Tolkien--a HUGE accomplishment)! But that wasn't all...The Angel Inside also broke into the top 10 of the prestigious New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller lists.
In addition to The Angel Inside, Chris has written 7 other books, including Live the Life You've Always Dreamed Of!, The Image and Twelve Pillars, co-authored with Jim Rohn. He has written over 350 articles and produced close to 20 audio programs on the subjects of leadership and motivation. His articles appear monthly in nearly 100 publications. Chris is also a featured contributing editor to the Jim Rohn One-Year Success Program.
Chris' newsletter, The Chris Widener Ezine, has subscribers in 105 countries, making it one of the world's most widely distributed newsletters on success and leadership. Additionally, Chris was the host emcee and guest speaker for two 2007 and the 2004 Jim Rohn Weekend Events -- he received rave reviews from not only Jim Rohn, Denis Waitley, Brian Tracy but also our attendees as well! He demonstrates a style that is engaging and versatile while providing life-changing principles of leadership, motivation and success.
