Starve Your Fears: The Andy Storch Show
Overcoming Fear and Building Confidence with Chris Niemeyer
If Chris Niemeyer isn’t traveling the world with his wife and 4 young kids or running his businesses from his phone, he’s committed to helping other entrepreneurs work ON their business instead of IN it.
Chris is a business owner, confidence coach, business productivity consultant and co-host of the Entrepreneurial Family Man podcast.
He’s also passionate about helping small business owners discover more time and financial freedom. Living a life of adventure, spending more time with loved ones and operating in your sweet spot can be a reality as Chris teaches you how to automate, delegate & outsource effectively.
Chris loves to travel, has been to 40+ countries and another 100 on his bucket list. For some strange reason, Chris’ interests start with the letter “f” – faith, family, friends, food, fitness, finance & far-off places.
Outside of work, he’s likely being tackled by and playing with his 4 young kids, coaching their sports activities & enjoying family time with his wife, Alicia.
