About Chris Wallace
Advisor to Men and Mentor at Large,
author and entrepreneur, father, husband.
Essentially what I do is help men use their power in service of themselves and those around them to find meaning and freedom.
From my experience and research, I have solved the Riddle of Addiction, the Secret to Marital Bliss, Parenting for Success and show how good sleeping and napping are your God-given birthrights. Oh, and how to defeat anxiety.
I teach men to be KINGS.
And, I sometimes help women understand them.
I have a wide variety of experiences to draw upon in service of those I support. I am unable to judge others given where I have been. Guilt and shame and trauma follow many of us. Look, each of us make the best decisions for ourselves at the time; after all, if we knew better back whenever, we’d have acted differently.
From a family with uneven attachments and violence, my father broke down with job burn-out and tossed me out at age 15. Leaving 8 siblings behind, I slid for a decade and a half into street life before having an epiphany when my first boy was two. That’s where I began to turn things around.
From high school dropout, I returned to school and eventually college, and was fortunate to graduate first in class as a Behavioural Science Tech, graduating With Distinction and winning the Academic Council Award for highest marks in each program year.
During this time, I won special dispensation to attend the Toronto School for Addictions Studies, learning from Bill Miller and other greats in the addictions area (finally solving the riddle of addictions in 2015). Later, I attended several universities (sexology, social work, psychology) while working as a counselor. I hold membership in the National Guild of Hypnotists and studied as a Gallup Strengths Coach.
In 2003, I went to work for the largest subscriber-sales newspaper company in North America, rising to Canadian senior vice-president, mentoring up to 150 reps and managers in a half-dozen city-territories. Recently, I became a consultant to help a startup with business plan, exec summary, vc deck, elevator pitch, and a short to long term plan to gain traction while defining market fit and minimum viable product and fundraising capital.
To be near my ailing father, three years ago I moved with second missus and our two young children (boy 6, girl 8) onto 200 acres of bush just south of Ottawa. We raise chickens and rabbits and organic vegetables in summer.
As your Advisor to Men, I say problems with masculinity needs more masculinity, not less (just better men). Realizing 150,000 people die in the world each day, when I wake up in the morning I think: I’m back!
