Christopher Gardner shares strategies for finding hope, success, and fulfillment while navigating the ups and downs of life with positivity, courage, tenacity, discipline, and common sense.

One of the most popular motivational speakers in America, Christopher is known for his empowering, rags-to-riches story of overcoming homelessness to become a multi-millionaire investor and owner and CEO of Gardner Rich LLC. He is the author of the autobiography, The Pursuit of Happyness, a New York Times and Washington Post #1 best-seller, and the inspiration for the acclaimed movie of the same name starring Will Smith. His newest book, Start Where You Are: Life Lessons in Getting From Where You Are to Where You Want to Be, reveals his hard-fought secrets to transformative success and fulfillment in life and business.

Always hardworking and tenacious, a series of adverse circumstances in the early 1980's left Christopher living on the streets on San Francisco and the sole guardian of his toddler son. Unwilling to give up Chris Jr. or his dreams of success, he persevered, ultimately reaching the heights of the financial industry. Now he’s revealing how he surmounted life’s obstacles, beat the odds, and found the ultimate success and happiness through his struggles – and how you can too.
