Choices you made and actions you took, or did not take, five years ago, put you where you are today. Choices you make and actions you take today will determine where you will be five years from now. We all have choices to make in our life, business and relationships. What choices you make is ultimately down to you. Once you make that simple realization, you will set yourself free. Chris Ducker, founder of Youpreneur.com, and I have that conversation today, right here on Men of Abundance.
Chris began his career in the sales and marketing industry, back in his hometown of London, UK.
In 2000 he up-rooted himself, and moved to the Philippines where he has resided since - currently overseeing the daily operations of his group of companies, the Live2Sell Group which houses three subsidiaries and almost 300 full-time employees.
As someone that has the uncanny ability to empathise extremely well with other like-minded entrepreneurs, Chris is also a highly sought after international keynote speaker, as well as a popular entrepreneurial blogger and podcaster.
Chris has been featured in Entrepreneur countless times, as well as in Forbes, Inc.com, Business Insider, the Huffington Post and has graced the covers of Empowered Entrepreneur and Foundr magazines. He recently made Entrepreneur Magazine's Top 50 Online Marketing Influencers of 2014 list.
His book, 'Virtual Freedom' is a 4-time, #1 Bestselling book on Amazon.com (with 300+ 5-Star reviews) and is available in bookstores worldwide.
