My Journey from $0 to Millionaire: A Personal Account by Tanner Chidester, CEO of Elite CEOs

Introduction: Journey to be Millionaire

Hello, everyone. Most of you might know me as the CEO of Elite CEOs, but today, I want to share with you my personal journey from having just $2,000 to becoming a millionaire. It’s a story filled with challenges, pivotal decisions, and, most importantly, an unshakable determination to succeed. My hope is that my experiences will inspire and motivate you on your entrepreneurial path.

Early Challenges and Determination:

Growing up in a family of seven kids in Utah, I faced my share of challenges. Being a first-generation entrepreneur, I didn’t have a roadmap to follow. Bullying was a part of my life until the age of 12, and it was then that I decided to channel my frustration into something positive – fitness. Those early days of relentless training not only transformed my physique but also instilled in me the belief that hard work equaled results.

Pursuing Football and Adversity:

Football became my passion, and I dedicated myself to the sport. However, despite my hard work, I faced setbacks due to injuries and the realization that genetics played a significant role in sports success. This led me to make a pivotal decision to transition away from football and focus on education.

A Pivotal Decision: Dropping Out of School

One of the turning points in my life was a conversation with my mentor, David Fry. He asked me a simple question, “Do you want to make a lot of money?” That question changed everything. I decided to drop out of college and take a leap of faith into the world of online business. It was a decision met with skepticism, but it marked the beginning of my entrepreneurial journey.

Learning Internet Marketing:

I immersed myself in internet marketing, learning about email marketing, automations, building landing pages, and sales funnels. Over a year and a half, I acquired valuable knowledge that would later prove crucial to my success.

The $47 Program That Changed Everything:

My first program, the Rapid Muscle System, was priced at just $47. While it didn’t generate significant profits initially, it taught me a valuable lesson – the importance of the right business model. It was clear that I needed to find a new approach.

Transition to Door-to-Door Sales:

Facing financial constraints, I briefly entered the world of door-to-door sales. It was a grueling experience, testing my determination and expanding my knowledge of sales psychology. After eight months, I had gained valuable sales skills but knew I needed a better path.

Discovering High-Ticket Sales:

A turning point came when I invested in a high-ticket sales program. I learned to raise my prices significantly, reaching $1,500 per program. This shift led to rapid success, making $10,000 in just the first week.

Scaling and Achieving Recognition:

My journey continued as I founded Fitness CEOs, a company that reached $1 million in less than three months. Subsequently, Elite CEOs was born, achieving remarkable growth to $50 million in sales over four and a half years. My unique mechanisms and innovative approach set me apart in the internet marketing space.

As my businesses thrived, I recognized the limitations of the internet marketing coaching space. The need for constant innovation and the risk of becoming a copycat presented challenges. This led me to contemplate my next entrepreneurial move.
