Christopher John did what was expected of him. He worked hard at school, went to a good university, graduated at the turn of the 21st century and got a job in the city. Over the course of a decade he had his car stolen twice, got mugged, fell victim to identity theft and had his house burnt down. Eventually he moved to Yorkshire for a better life. Hiking in the country, where he felt much safer, an innocuous looking cut led to septicaemia, immediate hospitalisation and the realisation life was too short to not do what he loved. CJ is an eternal optimist who believes life is a gift to be seized. Upon discharge from a long stay in hospital, CJ quit his full time job, started writing and founded his ground-breaking coaching company, with the aim of inspiring individuals and companies alike. In his spare time he can be found in coffee shops and tearooms across the north of England.
