Speaking and Workshops

Startup and Entrepreneurship

The whimsical image of starting a business and the actual day-to-day reality of startups are often quite different. With 30 years of experience in self-employment, business brokerage, and personal direct startups, Kris has acquired or sold 14 companies and has been an advisor to hundreds of others. Whether discussing the different mindsets of most Entrepreneurs or facilitating workshops on identifying, vetting, and executing new business ideas, Kris tailors the topic to your specific needs. His extensive local, regional, and national speaking experience on Entrepreneurial topics fit well for startups and entrepreneurs interested in driving business and achieving their goals.


As one of the fastest growing sectors in the Entrepreneurial world, Solopreneurship is also one of the most neglected. These wonderful, brave souls range from plumbers to accountants, dog-walkers to dentists, truck drivers to counselors. No matter the skill level, being a great technician, craftsman, or professional may have little impact on an individual’s business success. Understanding and mastering accounting, compliance, contracts, marketing, and a wide variety of areas is critical for growth. Kris has advised hundreds of Solopreneurs across the county and is happy to explore your speaking or workshop needs.

Individual Success and Development

As the co-authors of the book, Success Defined (2017), Kris and Reka Kluver are passionate about helping others discover and achieve their dreams. They argue that as individuals, many modern Americans have lost control of the narrative of what constitutes true happiness and success. Based on the book and the exercises provided within, both Kris and Reka provide workshops on how to take control of what success is – and on your terms.
