For my first episode of LIVE with Heidi, I knew the perfect guest would be the one and only Chris Powell. Many people see Chris as he is today—a successful transformation specialist, businessman, popular speaker, and dreamer and doer extraordinaire. However, many people don’t know that Chris is who he is today partly because of what he’s had to overcome: addiction, depression, homelessness, and massive amounts of debt.

In this episode, Chris shares his story, including how we met, and some things he’s learned on this journey we embarked on to help people transform their lives. I have no doubt you’ll be inspired and motivated to tackle those things you’re struggling with and those dreams you’ve been keeping in the background until “someday” comes.

Meet Chris:

Just in case you don’t know who this amazing man is, for over the last 2 decades, he’s helped hundreds of thousands of people transform their lives. From our hit TV show, Extreme Weight Loss, to his New York Times Best Selling books, to the creation of Transform and The Transform App, he is relentlessly driven to empower others and create effective solutions for lifelong change. And I know he’s just getting started, my friends.

Chris’ mission, that he happily shares with anyone and everyone, is to eradicate obesity-related suffering from humanity. And I have no doubt he will complete this mission.

Chris is also my best friend, my business partner, Cash + Ruby’s baby daddy, Matix and Marely’s bonus dad, and one of the kindest, humblest, and most authentic people you’ll ever meet. With Chris, what you see is what you get, and what you get is one beyond amazing human being.
