“It’s Gonna Be a Great Day”

Chris gets his day started and his children fired up about life everyday with one simple action; he claps his hands twice and says, “Today is gonna be a great day”!

It may sound simple but that one step sets the tone for his day which sets the foundation for each week, month and year. Chris’s great attitude is just one of the many reasons he is so successful but if you ask him, he’ll tell you it’s the most important!

I Allowed them to be good but I didn’t help them be great

Chris has a deep desire to be great in all he does and it shows. He is a great Dad, Husband, Friend, Community Member and Business Owner. That is because he expects the best from those around him but first he expects the best from himself. In my experience few people are “internally” motivated, most are “externally motivated”. For Chris his desire to change the Property & Casualty industry and to be the best he can be keeps him fired up and moving forward. Many need, a boss, a job title, some outside recognition to motivate them which is fine but to be internally motivated is far less limiting. Chris has that and I believe we can all tap into it if we find something to do, love, believe in and give back to that is greater than ourselves.

Give to Keep

Chris has a givers heart and he thrives and so does his business thanks to having a cause bigger than himself. His work with  the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center has a added another layer of meaning to Chris’s life and made him a better business owner and person. He doesn’t give to get but he certainly gets because he gives. He actually says he “He gives to keep” you’ll see what that means in the interview.
