At the age of 14, Chris realised the value of wealth when he was handing out newspapers. It grew the passion in him to become one of the top successful and wealthy people. He also knew that he had to become a businessman to achieve these goals.
His tough first-ever job was as a waiter in a restaurant. By doing the waitressing, he understood how to satisfy the customers’ needs. At the age of 16, he launched his dropshipping watch company; ‘Featherandstone.’
Gradually, he learned and gathered knowledge about associate marketing, investments, and social media growth. He was always good at communication, so he contacted many successful personalities and learned from them, amongst them Laurence Graff, Tobi Ajala, Amber Atherton, Fraser Doherty MBE, Simon Lammersen, Karl Ess, Marco Wiebelt, Michael Ambros, and many more.

5 Bits of Advice Chris Mark shared for his Fellow Beginner Industrialists
CMF knows many other people had suffered like him, so he shared simple terms for such fellows. What could be more authentic than the words of a man who once lost and now won the time?
Ø Focus on your good points and do not just bother about your weaknesses. Instead of worrying about weaknesses, work on the strengths that can assist you in the goal. Believe it or not but whatever strength a person possesses can be an advantage in the goal.
Ø Improve your weaknesses from time to time. Face them and try to manage them.
Ø Be specific about everything. Many development plans fail due to generalisation. For example, if you want to address the weakness of communication, be specific about what is wrong, i.e., grammar.
Ø If you have a doubt or need help, do not hesitate to reach out. The condition is, reach out to someone reliable or experienced.
Ø Correct your attitude. Be humble, positive, enthusiastic, and passionate. Most importantly, I carry a professional personality. No matter what you face, be confident and try to stay calm. It will bring the most beautiful reward.
