Introduction: My Journey to Be Rich

Hey there, I’m Tanner Chidester, and I’m thrilled to share my personal journey to be rich, from being a high school athlete to becoming the CEO of several successful businesses. It’s a journey filled with twists and turns, challenges, and triumphs that have shaped me into the person I am today. So, let’s dive into my story.

“It’s a journey filled with twists and turns, challenges, and triumphs that have shaped me into the person I am today. “

The Early Years: A Passion for Sports

As a kid, I was a sports enthusiast through and through. Sports were not just a hobby; they were my life. From football to various other sports, I poured my heart and soul into them. Little did I know that these early experiences would lay the foundation for the work ethic and determination that would serve me well in my entrepreneurial journey.

The Curveball: Injuries and Uncertainty

In my early twenties, my athletic journey took an unexpected turn. Injuries began to accumulate, threatening to bring my football career to a premature end. It was a tough pill to swallow, facing the uncertainty of what my future held. I felt lost, but deep down, I knew I couldn’t settle for a life that didn’t align with my passion and purpose.

Taking the Leap of Faith: Venturing into Business, My Journey to Be Rich

A pivotal moment occurred during a life-changing conversation with my mentor, David Fry. He presented an offer that would redefine my future – to leave college, allowing him to impart his extensive knowledge of online business. Despite skepticism from family and friends, I harbored a fervent desire for a path beyond engineering and was compelled to seize this extraordinary opportunity

The Early Struggles: From Foot Shows to Entrepreneurship

The start of my entrepreneurial journey lacked glamour. Hustling became a necessity, leading me to seek unconventional means to make a living. At one point, I even turned to foot shows for additional income. Though unorthodox, it was an act of desperation. Amid this struggle, I fine-tuned my expertise in marketing, automation, and online business, setting the stage for my future triumphs

The Million-Dollar Breakthrough: Discovering High-Ticket Sales

The turning point arrived when I joined an online fitness coaching program. It was here that I discovered the immense potential of high-ticket fitness programs. In just one week, I made $10,000, a significant leap from my previous income. This success fueled my determination, and it marked the beginning of my journey as a successful entrepreneur.

The Birth of Elite CEOs: Building a Multi-Million-Dollar Empire

With newfound success, I founded Fitness CEOs, which quickly soared to $2 million in just three months. As more entrepreneurs sought my guidance, the inception of Elite CEOs was inevitable. Over time, it generated over $50 million in sales, and I expanded my business portfolio by creating divisions like Elite Closers, Elite 360, and Elite Ads to offer a range of services.

Through the ups and downs of my journey, several valuable lessons have emerged:

  • Hard Work Translates: The discipline I developed as an athlete seamlessly transitioned into my business endeavors, giving me the drive to succeed.
  • Persistence Pays Off: My willingness to persevere through tough times ultimately led to my success.
  • Learning Never Stops: I continued to learn, adapt, and master new skills, even without a formal education.
  • Risk Is Part of the Game: My leap of faith into entrepreneurship was risky but paid off in the long run.
  • Diversification Matters: Diversifying income streams and exploring new business avenues led to significant financial growth.

The Future Awaits: New Adventures

Now, as I step into my thirties, I’m ready to embrace new adventures. I plan to step back from my role as CEO of Elite CEOs to explore fresh opportunities with even greater growth potential. Additionally, I’m eager to focus on growing my personal brand through content creation and sharing my insights with a wider audience.
