About Chris

Hi, I’m Chris Sumner, and thanks for checking me out!

I’m a digital lifestyle entrepreneur  and personal growth practitioner, and whilst taking a break from my day job, I came across something that changed the direction of my life completely…

Before I explain what that was, let me tell you where my mindset was at that point.

After 13 years in an industry that I no longer had any passion for, I was looking for a way to make an honest living online. But I’m very picky.

I had looked at offline marketing many years ago. But I found that arena so full of sharks, scams and dodgy characters who offered no real value to their customers, that it switched me off pretty quickly. I was looking for mentorship and training from people with honesty and integrity, and I just was not finding it.

Consequently, I changed career path instead and then spent the next 13 years building my skills,  getting pay rises and finally securing a position where I could work from home on a permanent basis.

But it wasn’t enough. Even the foreign travel didn’t make me feel I was doing anything worthwhile (my company has sent me to Dubai and Swaziland in the past 2 years).

I wanted to do something that had real meaning. Something that gave me the ability to look after my family and spend more time with them.

So, during a short break from work, I came across an advert for something called SFM, by a guy called Stuart Ross. My cynical brain immediately thought, “Oh, its one of those things..”. But something in what Stuart was saying, and the way he said it, made me watch it all the way through. He had inspired me. So I clicked the link and signed up for the free videos on offer.

I recall I only watched 3 or 4 videos before I realised that this sounded like the real deal, so I paid for an application. Once I took a look at the back-office the SFM provided and realised how much training, support and technology was at my fingertips, I signed up for Elite+ membership. About 20 days later, I signed up for placement in the Digital Experts Academy too.

Now I am committed to this business and this journey. I have everything I need, in my head and my heart, and I’ve never felt more certain of anything in my entire life.

I will not go to my grave saying, “What if…?” or “If only…!”

I will not reach my twilight years knowing I could have had an impact for the better in the world, in people’s lives, in the environment, but not having done anything about it.

So, welcome to The Freedom Journey Hub, where I will help YOU navigate your own journey. If you decide to take the same route to freedom that I have by signing up via one of the links provided, I will help you every step of the way, at no charge to you.

I know what is ahead of you; I’ve already been there. I know the sorts of barriers and blocks that can present themselves.

If you are not on that journey, begin one NOW. Follow the path, or create one of your own.

But ultimately, make a decision and be your real self!

My Background

13 years in a soulless career, but that is not where I started...
I have spent the last 12 years in the IT industry (financial transaction services) and worked my way up to a senior position in a software company. I work from home, in a high-pressure industry with minimal managerial input.

My skill-set has had to become very broad in order to carry out my responsibilities.

Everything from building client relationships, to programming, design, configuration, support, mentorship, maintenance, documentation and training.

I’m your typical IT geek, it would seem – but my heart is not made of microchips or databases. And my background before breaking into this career could not have been more different.

At heart, I am still a country boy. My heart yearns for green spaces, trees and the sounds and smells of nature in the raw, and I have been seeking “the meaning of life” most of my life.

The story of my life is a direct reflection of that seeking, is yours? When you look back, are you able to identify distinct stages in your life directly related to the state of your mind at the time and your understanding of the world and your place in it?

I came to the realisation that to find my real purpose, I needed to check what my values actually were and having done so, check what value I could be to the world and to others.

So I took action and started an online business and in the process realised my journey of self-discovery, personal growth and self-actualisation, the path I had always been seeking, had just opened up before me.

I am on the road now and have no intention of looking back.

I want to help everyone willing to do the work to get their wheels on that road too, even as I learn about the next fork in the road.
I may only be a little further up the track, but I can help anyone travelling behind on which fork to take, and which pothole to avoid.

A very old story…

Many, many years ago, I was involved with a voluntary youth work group at a regional level. I was one of two representatives on a committee for the Cheshire and Wirral region of the UK.

One morning, during a relaxed and informal meeting, after a residential conference we had organised and contributed to, and nursing a terrible hangover, one of the youth work liaison officers asked a direct question that no-one responded to.

“Come on!” She said, “You’re all autonomous young people!”

I immediately responded. “I don’t want to be an autonomous young person. I want someone to tell me what to do!”
And I meant it.

I had no idea. No clue. No plan. No Direction.

I wanted someone to solve all of my problems for me. To have all my questions answered and to have a path laid out for me, before I was willing to take action on anything or make a decision.

All I knew for certain at that age was that I did not want anything to do with the rat-race of 9-5. I wanted to do something true, significant and outstanding.

It’s taken 25 years since that day for me to finally wake up for real, and grasp my own life by the horns and actually start driving it in the direction I really want.
