Be your own superhero with bestselling author Chris Brogan | EP160

Sometimes people in our life can act as an inspiration without us even realising. For me, one of these people, a huge inspiration, is Chris Brogan.

The ripple effect of impacting people’s lives without getting the opportunity to even ‘meet’ them is the reason why I work in the Direct Selling industry… and a big part of this podcast. Chris inspired me and other people across the world to take a step into the unknown, to do something that they don’t even know that they are capable of doing.  

Chris is the Chief of Staff to the CEO at Appfire. His position serves as a strategic advisor to the executive and senior leadership of the company, with a mandate to drive the company’s major initiatives across the organization.

On top of this, Chris is the New York Times bestselling author of 10 books and is currently working on his 11th! Chris is a professional public speaker with well over 1000 speeches delivered across 14 countries.
