Tony talks with Chris Widener

Chris Widener is widely recognized as one of the top speakers in the world today. He has spoken all over the world in places like Germany, Spain, Russia, China, Egypt, Singapore, Australia, and of course, all over the United States and Canada.

Chris Widener began a small publishing company called the American Community Business Network in the 1990′s. Chris then changed the name to Made for Success and grew the company into a large business selling tens of thousands of personal development programs through large retailers like Costco, Sam’s Club, Wal-Mart, Target, and Barnes and Noble. He sold that business to his partner in 2009 to focus on his speaking, writing, and coaching exclusively.

Chris is the author of twenty books with three million copies in print in 13 languages and over 450 articles on success, leadership, sales, and motivation. His best-selling books include The Angel Inside (which has also been optioned as a movie), The Art of Influence, The Leadership Rules, Live the Life You Have Always Dreamed Of, Twelve Pillars, and the sequel to Twelve Pillars, Above All Else. Chris has also produced over 80 CDs and DVDs on a wide range of topics.

Chris has been a personal and professional development coach since 1988, helping people lead successful lives. Currently, because of his busy speaking schedule, Chris only takes ten coaching clients at a time.
