Chris Michel

Chris Michel is a son, a brother, a father, and now a grandfather, who grew up outside of Chicago, IL.  He grew up in a single parent household, played 3 sports through high school, and played college football, as a walk-on, and lettered twice.  He began his spiritual journey while in college and continued to learn and grow over the years.  Like most, he has had his ups and downs during that journey.  His spiritual journey has led him to develop a desire to not only work on his own ethical, consultative sales and business path, but to also help others in their mindful, virtuous journey in sales and business. 

Chris has worked in sales for over 30 years.  Throughout his career, he has been in management, a sales and business consultant, and now has his own sales and business coaching firm.   He has developed training programs over the years and continues to work with companies and individuals contributing to their improvement and success.  When he is not working, he has developed a passion for giving back to his community, focusing his volunteer efforts with Habitat for Humanity, where he can be found most Saturdays. 

Chris’s 1st book The Red Chair Experience is coming soon. The Red Chair Experience is an inspirational resource meant to be a daily read. Its pages highlight the importance of living each day to the fullest, while learning from life’s challenges and setbacks.
