“Chris Rugh’s insight into the importance of developing a healthy balance between work life and personal life is inspiring. I’ve always known a proper balance is healthy for relationships but Chris helped me realize it is also healthy for my business. Thanks Chris! ~ Daniel Worthington

“1-800-Awesome is exactly that – AWESOME! Chris made me realize that I can be myself and still be successful. I’m a free thinker and rebel at heart but I’ve always conformed to the status quo; work hard, wear a suit to look professional and work long hours to get ahead. I learned from 1-800-Awesome      : Tactics for Making $10,000 an Hour that those were the exact things that were holding me back. I have rekindled my rebellious spirit and leveraged it to take my business far beyond any of my previous expectations.” - Donald Klinger

“As a business owner, I’ve always worked harder than my employees because I believed I had to in order to ensure critical tasks were accomplished.  1-800-Awesome      : Tactics for Making $10,000 an Hour made me realize that my real job is to make myself ‘useless’.  When I followed Chris’ advice, productivity in my business skyrocketed.  Trust me, you need to read this book to really understand how great it is to be useless!” - Kevin Denny

“After reading the book i decided that Chris Rugh is DANGEROUS”-  Emily Zillig – Former Federal Department of Justice officer and analyst.

“Chris came to us as a suggestion from our Ignite-U video pro, Kerri Lee O’Farrell.  I went to Chris’ website and saw the title of his new book…

“1-800-AWESOME: Tactics for Making $10,000 an Hour”.  That’s all I needed to see.  I asked Kerri to connect us.

Soon thereafter Sherri and I headed North to Seattle to spend 2 hours with Chris in a cool coffee shop on Capitol Hill.  I picked his brain until he begged for mercy!  We spoke about his upbringing in the Detroit area.  How he came up with the idea that led to the largest vanity telephone number company in the country. And much more.

As Chris spoke all I could think was…”THIS IS A BIG IDEA GUY”.  You won’t even be able to be in the same room with Chris unless you are willing to think bigger. And yes…if that book title caught your attention you will be able to purchase one at Ignite-U!”: - Kieran Murry, Founder - ignite-u.com
