Getting a business started is tough, getting it to have momentum is the hardest part of the entire process. It takes a lot of motivation to get past your fears and begin the career you were meant to get started in. In addition, you’ll stumble and crash into more obstacles than expected. This doesn’t mean that you should give up. This is why Chris Harder has dedicated his own career to helping people become the best versions of themselves they can possibly be.
Having to start over after the last Great Recession, Chris just started off 2021 by investing in his tenth startup. It feels like yesterday that he was selling all their personal goods on craigslist just to start over from below zero. It’s been a long journey full of lessons and breakthroughs making a comeback like that.
Being known for his generosity, and wanting to share many of these lessons, Chris created a new kind of course to help people manage the common pitfalls of navigating their finances. His experience of “losing it all and having to rebuild from scratch as an entrepreneur, helped him create the perfect curriculum to help others navigate through the same obstacles, so that they do not make the same mistakes themselves. The course also offers everything you were never quite taught in school, but should have been.
What separates Chris from the crowd of others offering advice on how to grow and manage a business is that he realizes that not everyone has the financial resources or luxury to invest in coaching and one on one guidance. He’s always made sure to offer affordable options to ensure that finances are not a barrier to entry when it comes to receiving help.
Chris is one of the best people to be leading these kinds of conversations because he too used to struggle as well. He struggled with being trapped in a career he didn’t love. He struggled with managing their finances, and it affected both he and his wife Lori’s life. He was able to turn it all around and now he wants to give back what he learned along the way.
Chris hopes that the way he was able to turn his life around will help other people just like you realize they can do the same!
