About Chris Reich
Let’s get the big one out of the way. I pronounce Reich as RICH. Easy.
My first job at the age of 8 was on an egg ranch. I candled and packed eggs. That job was a lot of fun despite being rather messy. Note to potential egg packers: eggs break. By high school, I had 2 jobs. I worked for the Fresno School District and a very dumpy fast-food restaurant. I loved working with the kids where I created a cool science program for advanced kids and a ‘thinking’ program for kids with learning disabilities.
During and after college, I worked in retail as a manager. A real manager, not an assistant shift guy. I made my companies a lot of money but it never helped my income.
I started my own business (a medical consulting practice) at the ripe age of 27. I have been helping businesses of all kinds ever since.
In 1998, I sold my technology training business in the San Francisco area. I moved to the mountains of Northern California where I built my home and office on 130 acres of paradise. Today, I do much of my work from my offices in the country. When helpful, I travel to work face-to-face with clients all over the country. I’ve worked for very small and very large businesses in many different industries. Having worked with hundreds of companies, I’ve been able to learn from as well as contribute to my client’s businesses. That broad perspective will work for you.
For fun, I enjoy science, especially physics and solar astronomy. There are 22 telescopes in my 2 offices.
My dogs are my constant companions and the center of my universe. Don’t ever mess with them.
The one thing you must know about me is that I firmly believe every business can do better. That means YOURS can do better. Business can be overwhelmingly hard sometimes. Having a caring outside perspective helps executives focus on and achieve new goals. That’s what I would like to do for you.
