What Chris does now

Chris focuses on 2 areas…

1. Having, in some years, sold million of dollars of his own and other people’s products, and mailed up to 1 million sales letters in a single year, for a small proportion of his time Chris coaches people on turning their knowledge into books, CDs, mp3 downloads, ebooks, seminars etc, with the aim to create a part-time or full-time income – even if they don’t know what their expertise is. Some of the people who approach Chris have already had considerable success with marketing products but simply want to move to the next level. More info here.

Chris-Payne-bookcases [Above is a Photoshopped image to show what Chris’s personal library would look like if all his bookcases were all in a row: there are more than 1,300 books and courses in 13 bookcases in his library, and nearly all of them are on personal change.

2. He also teaches people how to make money – or more money – as a life coach/facilitator – often if they’ve done professional training but have conducted no or few coaching sessions themselves so far. Some want a website building like this Triumph Over Challenges website you’re looking at now. More here.
