Longer Bio

Chris Lema knows which words to use to get people to act — telling a story from stage, on a landing page, or in a blog post. It’s a skill he’s refined over the last thirty years, and one he’s been sharing with others for the last ten years.

Unlike gifted experts who can’t explain what they’re doing, Chris has helped countless entrepreneurs as a coach. He's co-founded and sold several startups, built several SaaS products, and written regularly on his own blog, with more than 7 million visitors over the last 9 years.

As the VP of Products at Nexcess, he manages the folks that created the first dedicated hosting solution for WooCommerce. You can also find him at conferences, one of the most requested speakers, sharing his insights and strategies with anyone willing to listen to his stories.
