Chet Holmes – We Say Goodbye to A Friend

Chet HolmesChet Holmes Passes Away After Fighting Leukemia

I just saw a post by Chet Holmes partner Tony Robbins saying goodbye to his good friend and business partner Tony Robbins Tribute to Chet Holmes – Tony shares a letter that Chet got for fathers day from his son.


Business Development Guru, Chet Holmes, 55, Has Succumbed to Leukemia

From www.BusinessBreakthroughs.com:

(Los Angeles, CA) After a valiantly fought 17-month battle with Leukemia Chet Holmes peacefully passed on, surrounded by his family, at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.

Chet leaves behind a beautiful family: his adoring wife, Vickey, and his loving children (daughter Amanda and son Jordan).

He also enriched the world with a broad and deep creative legacy. Chet is best known for his breakthrough business best seller: The Ultimate Sales Machine which he authored in 2006 and has remained on Business Best Seller book lists ever since. [Full Story]

Chet Holmes is best known, by the general public, for his AM radio spots. You have probably heard them countless times. He was also the author of The Ultimate Sales Machine. You can check out his extensive Bio at www.onpurposemagazine.com/master-marketing-strategist-chet-holmes

The last time I spoke with Chet was a couple of months ago. I know that he was finished with his drug treatments for Leukemia and he said he was feeling better and the tests seemed positive, so it is with great surprise that I hear about Chet passing.

Chet was such a proud dad and he really was looking forward to entering a new phase of his life. He wanted more than ever, as Tony says, to touch lives, transform and turn around businesses.

Recently Chet wrote a special bio on CaringBridge. You can find at: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/cyranocyrano/mystory

“Three months ago I Was diagnosed with Leukemia.

I have gone through an intensive period of detox, holistic health, massive prayer and sound therapies that are designed to stabilize the body to it’s most healthy self.

I  am surrendered to God’ wisdom on this journey, which is the most powerful place to come from. Nothing can hurt you if you are surrendered to God’s wisdom.

The 3-months-ago- me would’ve never surrendered to anything.” –  Chet Holmes Unknown Date


I invite you to listen to my interview with Chet that took place in April of this year. It is our audio interview and Chets Bio. http://onpurposemagazine.com/2012/04/27/master-marketing-strategist-chet-holmes-is-on-the-way-back/

The last tweet Chet made on June 27th was to repeat one of my posts. He was always so giving and supportive of me and my efforts.

@ChetHOlmes; MT @jwnajarian: 5 years from now, will you remember what you did yesterday? What about the day B4 that? And the day B4 that?

My warmest and most sincere condolences go out to Chet’s family and friends for their terrible loss.

I am grateful for getting to know you Chet, if only for a short time.  I will miss seeing your retweets – JW

Chet Holmes Master of Marketing is on the Mend and Coming Back Strong

Chet Holmes talks to me about his battle with leukemia, his newest project and gives us Two Ways to Double Sales!

Chet and I have been chatting over Twitter while Chet has been undergoing chemotherapy treatments after his bone marrow transplant.

It has been a tough one, I am sure, for his family and friends, but Chet is a fighter and he is not only coming back, but he is coming back better. Chet told me that he tried every natural, mystical and spiritual cure you can think of or name and more. Chet has learned a lot about himself and his body and has become really serious about his nutrition. We talked privately before the interview and I found out that he discovered what I have about sugar and starches….. Bad, bad, bad.

At the time of this interview Chet had 15 more days of chemo to go through, but his white cell counts and other tests were all extremely positive.

Chet is only working about 3 hours a day right now so I thank him so much for giving me one hour to just talk about stuff, but Chet is not good at just shooting the breeze and insisted on giving you two ways to double your sales.

Chet also giving a very valuable freebee away.. His 90 minute training in how to grow your sales leads x 10 without increasing your marketing budget. Tony Robbins, Chet’s business partner, hosts the call with over 13,000 participants. Chet takes 4 people on the line and breaks down for their business, how they can increase their lead base. This one webinar is massively valuable if you are trying to increase your customer base.

Doubly cool is that Chet and I have some fun as he plays, never before heard, radio spots of he and Tony that will be coming out soon. Be the first to hear them!

Chet let me thank you for taking your time to talk with me and my listeners. We wish you God’s Speed on your recovery and know that we will be watching you and Tony killing it out there with your new business plan program…. – JW
