You don’t always need formal training or a solid plan to become a successful entrepreneur. Chris Badgett has always sought freedom and adventure over a conventional path. For him, making it is all about the freedom to be yourself and follow your passions.
Welcome to Making It! This weekly show explores the lives and stories of entrepreneurs as they share their unique perspectives on their success and the path to making it.
Chris Badgett is the co-founder and CEO of LifterLMS, a learning management system for WordPress. As a kid, he was often bored, preferring outdoor adventure to indoor education. But his passion for learning things that did interest him fueled one new interest after the other, eventually leading to his own success in online education.
In this episode of Making It, Chris talks about being voluntarily homeless, running sled dogs and turning his quest for freedom and interest into a successful business.
“It's less obvious than, you know, making money or making a difference or making an impact, but to truly get to be yourself; that's making it.”
