Tanner Chidester, based in Miami, Florida, is the founder of Elite CEOS. Elite CEOS is a business-to-business company that has grossed over $21 million in revenue in just three years and helps individuals build online-based businesses while providing one-on-one coaching to help navigate all their business facets.
For some perspective: Tanner grew up in a large household in Texas. The family barely got by on his father’s salary, and he remembers the feeling of not being able to buy something because he could not afford it and wishing to never have to worry about money. This developed into a strong desire to be in a position to help the people he loved, and the understanding that to do so meant that he needed money – lots of it.
Tanner learned quickly in college that he didn’t want to work a 9-5 or scrape by financially. He wanted to be able to control his income and destiny. So, he decided to play to his strengths, which had always been sports and fitness and founded his first business – a health and fitness training firm. He struggled, made mistakes in his first two years, and lost money, but he refers to himself as “stubborn,” and eventually, he succeeded.
“At the end of the day, it’s a lot easier to make more money than to save more.” – Tanner Chidester.
As his success began to spread, other trainers reached out to learn his secrets. His passion for sharing his knowledge and expertise with other entrepreneurs led to the launching of Elite CEOS. His clientele expanded to include real estate experts, marketing experts, and nutritionists within a short period.
One of the unique approaches of Elite CEOS is in the way the company follows up on every single one of their leads via Facebook messenger to maximize conversion to sales; This, combined with spending a minimum of $400k a month on ads. This method has yielded certifiable success, and Tanner, through his company, teaches clients how to replicate the same system at scale.
Tanner’s program is detailed and practical, teaching relevant strategies and techniques that he applies in his own businesses. Elite CEOS can work with virtually any coach or expert with a product or service that can be sold online. The company’s ultimate objective is to help clients grow their business while carving out more time for their personal lives through a step-by-step process tailored to each business owner.
With the number of people moving online for their jobs and businesses, it has become clear that there is a shift in the status quo. The COVID-19 Pandemic has shown that online companies benefit more than firms without an online presence. Elite CEOS guides business owners to pivot and make the most of the new normal.
Besides coaching through Elite CEOS, Tanner is a big anti-bullying advocate, having been a victim of bullying at school back in the day. Through his success and platform, he has been able to help raise additional money to build schools in Africa through the Village Impact Foundation.
“I made the decision a long time ago to never settle and now it’s my mission to help other people achieve the same kind of success and freedom.”
On his choice of choosing Miami as a base of operations, he jokes, “It has great weather, no state income tax, good looking people, lots to do. What else could you want?” His target for the coming year is to grow his revenue from $15 million to $22 million-plus a year. He also hopes to create other ventures and businesses that he intends to work on simultaneously.
Tanner Chidester exemplifies what one can achieve with the combination of hard work and a proven system in a business or one’s personal life.
