Chris Guthrie got had his interest in online business peaked by a pop-up ad on video game. From there, he started a journey into learning how to really make money online. Lucky for Chris, he started creating income before he actually needed it, and by the time he needed it, he had been let go from his job.

From there, Chris found it to be a better strategy to build software rather than to just affiliate mark. While affiliate marketing still remained a large tool in his tool box, he began focusing on software to make the lives of other marketers easy.

With the advent of Amazon private labeling, Chris very quickly saw success selling on Amazon. It wasn’t long before he saw the pain point of other sellers and created Salesbacker. Join us as we dig into his journey.

Positive Failure  enough weight to fail because its too heavy, but not because the muscle is tired but because it fails to have the power to lift a heavier weight. The is centered around an approach of at least 4 but no more than 6 reps.

Linear Progression: This is a complicated way of saying to make the weight just a bit heavier, each week. Over time, the muscle will grow.

Rest: workouts should only be about 3 days a week, and workouts need to be 30 minutes or less.

Food: eat clean all the time and you will grow. Eat like crap, look like crap.

Volume Sets: German volume training, instead of 10 sets of 10, its 5 sets of ten, or the last one may be 6-8 Combine that with linear progression and rest pauses. I had a client do this combo and gain 18lbs of muscle in a month.

After the loss of his mother when she was only 56 years old, Keith decided right then and there to live his life with no regrets.  With that “No Regrets” mantra he started the business he was always wanting to start but was too afraid, which was investing in Real Estate.

After building an 8 figure investing firm in the first two years he went on to teach thousands of other investors on the biggest stages in the country how to do the same. He then started an online education company teaching people how to raise money for their real estate deals.

With a huge learning curve to overcome as he was new to the online space he was able to figure the ins and outs and help thousands of investors with his tools. Seeing how freeing the internet was and how much impact and reach you could have online he created the Amplify Live Experience, which is a unique LIVE four day experience that teaches people how to find their mission, message, passion and purpose and how to make profits with that passion.

The top business thinkers, practitioners and executors continually speak on stage with Keith at the Amplify Live Experience a few times a year in Las Vegas. Keith prides himself on helping others learn from A to Z on how to make money online and have joy doing it!

Success without Joy is failure in Keith’s eyes, so with that end he shares and serves others to truly bring the joy in their personal and professional lives.

In This Episode:
  • Making it happen when it seems lost.
  • Finding your purpose.
  • What to consider when creating a product.
  • The biggest thing missing in success.
  • How your authenticity communicates.
  • Why its better to side hustle at first.
  • The importance in building rapport.
  • What living with “No Regrets,” really means.

Keith’s Favorite Quote:
“It’s not the critic who counts, not the man who points out where the strongman stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the area, who’s face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly, who errs, comes up short again and again, because there’s no effort without err and shortcoming, but who actually strives to do the deeds, who knows great enthusiasms and great devotions, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best in the end knows the triumph of high achievement  who at the worst if he fails while daring greatly, so that if he fails his place will never be with thos cold and timid souls, who neither knew victory or defeat.” — Theodore Roosevelt
