About Chris Winfield - Entrepreneur, writer and coach

Hi, I’m Chris Winfield…

…and I want to help you work less, accomplish more and live life on your terms. For years I struggled with working too much and never really enjoying my life. I constantly had thoughts like this:

Chris Winfield
  • I don’t feel like I am living the life that I thought I’d be living when I was young…
  • There’s never enough time. I can’t get it all done…
  • I can’t focus well enough to accomplish my goals. I get side tracked with things that aren’t as important as they seem…
  • I want to spend more time with my family but when I am with them, I feel guilty about not working…
  • I’m afraid that I’m too old or that it’s too late or that I won’t be successful at whatever I want to do…
  • I have to work crazy long hours or else I can’t truly succeed…

…and I was miserable. Until something changed…

Or to be more precise, until I changed. And that’s what I’m here to tell you about. You see, over the last few years, I took back my life…a terrible event blessing in disguise forced me to reevaluate my life and I realized I could no longer live the same way (more on that in a minute)…


I’ve been an entrepreneur for just about all of my adult life (I had one job right out of college and I pretty much learned everything not to do there). I’ve had a lot of success in my life. But I’ve also had a lot of failure. I’ve been fortunate enough to have learned from the failure.

A few years back, I had everything you could want. Everything that I thought was supposed to make me happy. The house, the cars, the perfect family, a successful company, friends. But I felt completely empty. I was always anxious. Always worried about something. If I could just get this or accomplish that, then I’d be happy.

It was ALL about the future. I was always waiting for that one elusive day when everything was perfect…and then I’d be happy. But it doesn’t work like that. Tomorrow isn’t ever promised.

Things changed drastically for me one day in March of 2013 when a company I had co-founded a few years earlier imploded. Everything that I had ever worried about happening…happened. And it forced me to take a hard look at my life…and I realized I was going to have to change everything if I was ever going to truly live one moment of it.

This website is the result of the journey that I embarked on when I made that decision. This is what I’ve learned from some of the greatest teachers that have ever lived. This is the result of what I’ve learned, not just by reading and listening, but by trying things for myself. By experimenting with my own life. By constantly refining and trying to get a little bit better each day.

I’ve learned that you can change your life. And that you can do it gradually. I’ve learned that anyone can live a happier, more fulfilling, more successful life. And that this can be done by implementing small changes. Small changes that can have a HUGE impact on your life.

You just have to be willing to start. You have to want to be a little bit better. To live just a little bit more of your life. It’s never too late.

On this website I share with you what I learned, the proven systems and tools I used and continue to use on my journey. I share with you exactly how I learned how to work less, earn more, and get more out of each day. I try to combine these three secret ingredients into everything I do – Structure, Spirituality, and Simplicity. This elixir is a powerful antidote to this insanity we call the modern life.
