These stunts are performed by a mobile enabled marketer on an open course without a net. Try this at home kids. Never run with scissors and always help old ladies across the street. May cause laughs escalating up to beverages ejecting through your nostrils. Additional side effects are side aches and general euphoria. Take 2 Captain Selfies and call me in the morning!

Sometimes this is training and coaching but it is often through being their outsourced marketing department.
His View on Social Media:
Social Media is a tool to help you stay in touch with an ever increasing circle of connections. Seth Godin called it your tribe. Chris meets new people for a living. He connects with them socially and tries his best to keep up with them. The word tries means he isn't always successful. What he is, is authentic, transparent and that means owning his mistakes and hoping you are laughing with him or at him either way he is bringing you joy! So connect with him and who knows where this connection might go!
