Chris Gardner

What do you do once you’ve written your autobiography and it’s turned into a major movie starring Will Smith?

I have always said that I’m lucky to have some of the coolest, most influential people in the world as clients.  Known to millions through his books, movie, philanthropy and message, Gardner often sleeps in Chicago, but calls the world home.

Sure he’s been on Oprah, and CNN camps on his door, but few (except me) know how passionate he is about cars, and I jumped at the chance to interview a man just as enthusiastic about horsepower as he is about changing lives through inspiration,  perspiration and motivation.

Thanks for your time, Chris, and thanks for your message!


See you on down the road,

    Thanks for sending-on the latest issue of “Drive with Dave.” I often stay-up late into the warm summer evenings, sleep eluding me, wondering..just where in the world IS Dave…
