About Chris

Chris is a recent college graduate, entrepreneur, consultant, investor, an empowerment to young adults and most of all, a dreamer. His passion is to influence the way his generation seeks success. With a seemingly overwhelming amount of ideas in his head, he has become committed to changing the way the world works for the benefit of humanity.

As young as 12 Chris knew his path was not to work for someone for the rest of his life but to control his own destiny and sculpt his lifestyle. As an intelligent youngster he launched his first business in 1999, a web design company called Ankele Web Design. Like most first time business owners it didn’t go very far, but that was not something that could stop him. Tell Chris he cannot do something, and he will do it just to show that it can be done. He thrives on finding ways to do things that are outside of the “cookie cutter” mindset.

Though still in college, Chris has launched a few small businesses, one buying and selling scrap metals and the other a moving and storage business for students. However the clock is ticking and it is almost time to graduate. He realized that if was he going to be self employed after college, he had better get moving. Seeing the pieces of his life slowing falling into place Chris has been working towards developing a personal brand online. Offline he deals with social media marketing, small business consulting, affiliate marketing, and lifestyle coaching.

In addition, he has decided to focus some attention on a new venture. Being devoted to self-improvement and lifestyle development for 7 years, Chris decided to turn his life project into a new business called project: U – a self-help blog, training program, and soon to be book, designed to empower college students and young adults with the tools necessary to develop a desired lifestyle and an ongoing model for personal success!
