Today’s guest is Chris Cromwell, a marketing nerd, and meetup organizer. Elizabeth and Chris talk about twists and turns in life and how Chris has used his base of optimism and resourcefulness to continue to do the work he loves.
👦 Chris was bullied as a kid, but it led him to learn how to show up in a big way. 2:27🚗 Chris made his first sale at 5 years old for the extra money he was looking for from his mother. 6:06🦎 Selling salamanders to classmates got him sent to the principal’s office. 9:18😟 When he was a teenager, Chris learned about market demand and developed a business falling in with the “wrong crowd”. 12:40💨 Watching people in his circle face the consequences of their choices made him choose a better path and get a ‘real’ job. 14:58🙃 The day when 5,000 people showed up to his first music event made him realize he’s great at gathering people. 19:52▶️ Chris’ advice: Don’t worry about the next step, just start with what you’ve got and lean into it! 24:43📲 Chris received a call that changed the course of his career and he moved home to take care of his mom. 26:02🥀 After caring for his Mom with lung cancer, Chris found out his Dad was sick and he chose to spend time taking care of him as well. Both parents passed within 6 months of each other. 29:54 🌟 Chris’ parents instilled in him that something good can always come from tough situations. His incredible optimism would have made his parents so proud. 34:04🎨 The decision to move to Calgary was ‘do or die’, and now Calgary is home. 36:14😍 The culmination of all the life lessons and experiences helped Chris figure out marketing is his “lane”. 40:10💻 Inner Circle Marketing Mastermind is a dynamic place online where people from different industries share their stories and empower each other. 41:27💫 Life is full of twists and turns and connections - from living on a couch a few years back to a 5000 square foot house. 43:46🌟 Contact Elizabeth to hear more about Chris’ mastermind Inner Circle Marketing group. 44:55
