Hi everyone, Chris Carm here. I'm a Canadian born entrepreneur and Snapchat influencer. I started telling stories on Snapchat right after they launched the story feed. I tell comedic, motivational and inspirational stories. I live for adventure and take my audience along for the ride. My aim is to inspire them to take life by the horns, live in the now, and never look back. Ask away :)
Hi Chris, I have been a really big fan of yours ever since you made your first trip here to Iceland. Keep up the [entrepreneuring?] And I really enjoy your stories. Here is my question. What was been the toughest challenge that you have ever had to overcome? With Best Regards from Iceland. Brynjar

Chris! As you know, I've been following your stories for a while but I never heard the details of how you got into Snapchat and where you think the platform (or more broadly, independent entertainment/storytelling) is going in the next few years.

Hi Chris, Are you working with a lot of brands as an influencer ? How do you manage all these requests ? Do you have an agent taking charge of the "business" side ? Thanks

How old are you, and what did you do before snapchat? Did you just drop everything and say "Hey, I'm going to make money off of this random thing."?
Hi Chris you're great. Can you bring some of your humor to Holland? That would be amazing. And when did you actually start thinking about doing the funny snapchat storie thing? (srry for my bad English langueges aren't my thing)
