Few stories are as inspiring and moving as motivational speaker Christopher Gardner’s. Gardner rose from homelessness to become the owner and CEO of Gardner Rich LLC. Author of the autobiography, The Pursuit of Happyness, a New York Times and Washington Post #1 best-seller, he is also the inspiration for the acclaimed movie The Pursuit of Happyness, for which Will Smith, starring as Gardner, received Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild, and Academy Award nominations.
His newest book, Start Where You Are: Life Lessons in Getting From Where You Are to Where You Want to Be was released in 2009 and instantly hit the New York Times Best-Seller List.
Always hardworking and tenacious, a series of adverse circumstances in the early 1980’s left Christopher Gardner homeless in San Francisco and the sole guardian of his toddler son. Unwilling to give up Chris Jr. or his dreams of success, Gardner climbed from the very bottom to the top of the financial industry ladder.
Surmounting acute obstacles throughout his life, Christopher Gardner is an avid professional speaker, sharing with his audiences the keys to self-empowerment, and the message of beating the odds and breaking cycles. Gardner is also a passionate philanthropist committed to many charitable organizations.

Spiritual Genetics and the American Dream
The opportunity for prosperity, success, and gaining upward social mobility through hard work is the essence of the American Dream. Christopher Gardner has made this dream a reality and shares with audiences how to do the same with his concept of Spiritual Genetics — learning what you’re made of by tapping into your unknown potential. Gardner helps you identify the “P’s” in your life ? finding your passion, being practical, and having a plan. Then, he explores what he calls the C-5 Complex: being clear, concise, compelling, consistent and committed to the plan. All of these ingredients will leave audiences empowered, uplifted, and ready to make positive changes in their lives.
