Chris is a giving individual and author. He comes up from an entrepreneurial past and began blogging when most people thought it was journaling. Chris was part of a virtual community and his first blog took 8 years to become successful. He was writing about a lot of different things and always shared his opinions, but writing from the wrong place.
“In the old days I would give my opinion on a lot of things. There is one thing we humans have about as much as we inhale and exhale and that is we opinions.” - Chris Brogan
Chris was writing about personal productivity and was gaining a lot of traction. He believes it became popular because everyone was offering what type of softwares you should have so he thought he would start asking what are you trying to accomplish first. Chris has been able to ride this through a lot of different waves due to his style.
“I had a different way of saying things and it was a way I guess I connected with people and made them see themselves. One of the weird compliments I receive a lot is you make it look easy.” - Chris Brogan
Chris believes that there is more than one way to get to your end goal. He believes that he articulates things so they are actionable. Chris wants people to get in, get the information, go try it for themselves, prove if it works for them and then get out. He looks at things objective, pliable and flexible.
“One other thing that separates me from the rest is that I don’t try to stick to one approach; I like to take a lot of different paths to a goal.” - Chris Brogan
Chris tries to make as many paths as he can so he can be found. He just completed his 9th book Find Your Writing Voice. As part of this book you can join a Facebook group and has created a road to community to give his listeners a voice. Chris is very easy to get ahold of and is very engaging.
“I don’t really spend as much time on my complainers but I do what I can to love on the people who feel like I’m helping them.” - Chris Brogan
