Chris has 20+ years of experience building hyper-profitable business models. After leaving his job in finance, Chris launched Senthold, a strategic consulting company that primarily partners with surgeons.

His clients got the results they wanted and Chris became wildly successful.
Now, Chris teaches others to build their own masterminds. During this powerful conversation, he will be sharing his expertise on how to find your niche, how to make more money, how to free up your time, and ultimately how to enjoy your life to the fullest.
It all began with a business book
Before Chris was the Founder and CEO of multiple successful companies, he was a burnt-out entrepreneur missing his kids. He realized that he needed to reclaim his time, rediscover what he loved and built systems that served his lifestyle.
Like many entrepreneurs, Chris Williams had heard of the book The 4-Hour Work Week by author Tim Ferriss. After briefly skimming it, he laughed it off.
Months later, Chris downloaded the audiobook and listened casually while he was raking leaves in his yard. After a few moments, he set his rake down – and opened up his notes app.
What happened next was a whirlwind journey. Chris created a mind map, essentially breaking down what he really needed to focus on. By cutting out distractions and building better business systems, he could free up more time. He ended up easily doing exactly that – and made more money in the process! In just four months, Chris was only working four hours a day – and quadrupled his income.
Chris’s advice to entrepreneurs: Follow the data
As busy entrepreneurs, we get overwhelmed with our workload, our visionary ideas and our commitments. It can be difficult to know what to focus on!
Chris’s advice for us is pretty simple – we need to start following the data. He recommends that we get clarity by writing down the ten most profitable projects we’ve worked on in the last year. Looking at these projects, take note of common threads. Moving forward, you can dramatically increase your income by doing more of the projects that make you more money – and developing systems to simplify and duplicate those projects.
What could you do to systematize your business? What could you delegate to free up your time? The answers to these questions will help you decide what you should be focusing on.
If you can teach it, they will come
After Chris built Senthorn, he had people offering to take him out to lunch and pick his brain. After all, he had built a wildly successful marketing company…in a field that was entirely new to him. How did he do it?
He realized that he could monetize this knowledge, making an income by selling this information to others. He encourages you to do the same.
What are you great at, that brings value to yourself and others? What do people talk to you about, and ask you questions about? You could create a profitable course on that subject in just 8-12 weeks, with the help of professionals at Group Coach Nation!
“Anything you can learn how to do, you can teach it to someone else and they’ll pay you for it.”
“Once we get time, all of the sudden opportunities become so obvious. We just need time and space to think.”
“If you’re really focused on what your prospect’s needs are and you truly think you can help them, then taking their money is okay. If you really don’t think you can help that client, taking their money is unethical.”
“Once I was free from the time constraints of work – which gave me opportunities to heal my heart in other ways – I didn’t want to go back. So I wanted to start an information-based business without filling up my calendar.”
“What is the highest profit value thing that takes the least amount of your time? Do that. Cut things out that don’t keep up with that initial project.”
“Niche or no niche? Everybody talks about that. The way to find your niche is to look back at the ten most profitable things you’ve done in the past year. Look at those ten and find the commonality. The next ten gigs you do need that common thread. You’ll get deeper down a path that is more profitable and takes less time.”
“My team and I are on a mission to help you take your knowledge and expertise and actually make a living off it. Ask yourself, how do I sell my information for the highest price?”
