E431 - Chris Williams - How to generate leads, close high-ticket deals, and build strong, transformational groups.

Hacks & Hobbies

Today I'm honored to bring my really good friend Chris Williams to the podcast. He's the reason I've been consulting clients all over the world to build their Home Studios. Chris spends most of his time raising his five kids, exploring world communities, and trying his hand at adventures like shark diving, ice climbing, running ultra marathons, and riding electric skateboards :) In his spare time, he works with entrepreneurial and business experts, speakers, coaches, and leaders helping them market, monetize, and lead their own high-ticket mastermind (or group coaching) programs. As the world continues to shift, many experts are trying to build high-ticket groups for additional income, lead generation, or impact. Chris teaches experts how to generate leads, close high-ticket deals, and build strong, transformational groups. He has his own digital agency, leads two masterminds of his own, and has learned many of these lessons the hard way, so sharing his journey and offer strategies is why he is here.

Teaching someone else to do the things I hate doing saves so much time and energy. Delegate the things that take most of your time that you hate doing. If you put parameters on real life and force the business life back, it will get more efficient and it will get better. Build accountability around getting your life back.
