Become The Bruce Lee of Your Life! (w/ Chris Ducker)

“Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do.” – Bruce Lee

It’s a new chapter for The Commit First Podcast, and to pop off the 101st episode, I invited entrepreneur, business coach, author and father Chris Ducker to talk about his journey as an aspiring dad-entrepreneur. He’ll also talk about his various struggles earlier in the decade, and all of the important key values he picked up along the way. From starting his VA company based in the Philippines in 2004, to overcoming an extreme burnout that left him dehydrated, depressed, and malnourished to the point of hospitalisation, Chris smashed through these obstacles like a true warrior.

Currently the owner of three 7-figure businesses, Chris is definitely a gem in the coaching industry. It all started in 2009, when Chris had to go through a delicate spinal surgery because of a busted L5-S1 disc. Chris was working non-stop for 2 years, and after putting on the hats of what should have been for 8 different employees, Chris’s body took a toll on him. This served as a rough wake-up call for him, bringing with it acute exhaustion and dehydration. The moment he walked out of the hospital doors, he knew it was time for a change. Getting a grip on his lifestyle, Chris made sure to straighten things out for both his personal and professional life.

He learned the importance of delegation, realising that building your own team will help turn your life around and grow your business. With that in mind, Chris built up what would now be his three 7-figure companies, namely Live2Sell, Virtual Staff Finder, and Youpreneur. Live2Sell and Virtual Staff Finder are rooted at the heart of the Philippines’s major BPO industry. The former helps generate outbound leads as a B2B company, while the latter helps brands and companies in recruiting quality employees to help them grow. Youpreneur is a little different, being Chris’s newest endeavour founded in 2015.

Youpreneur helps educate and guide experienced professionals on how to lead their businesses to spearhead the industry, landing at the top of the list in their own game. It helps brands grow through the use of coaching programs, coaches, an annual conference, and its very own podcast. Now with over 7,000,000 downloads, the podcast grew to help thousands of entrepreneurs across the globe, which is still a growing number to this day.
