Meet Chris Waters of Constructed Adventures in Ocean Beach

Today we’d like to introduce you to Chris Waters.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Chris. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
My business started as a gift for someone. It blew up on the internet and I founded my side hustle! From January 2015 until October 2017 I worked full time and then built and ran adventures on evenings and weekends. I finally got to a point where I was turning down adventures in other states and my day job as an Account Manager was getting pretty soul crushing. One day I decided that I would rather try to run this business full time. I took the leap. It worked!

A week before I quit the day job, I was featured at the end of a podcast called “How I Built This.” My website traffic, calls, and inbound emails went through the roof. Like that, I was booked out in Spring 2018! In February, I did an AMA on Reddit which booked me out further. Since then, I’ve traveled to 19 different states and one different country for my work!

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
This has been a crazy life. I travel so much that I ended up putting all my things in storage. It keeps my personal costs down but it’s rough not having a home to go to. Luckily, my girlfriend is kind enough to let me stay with her in-between adventures!

I’m constantly on the move, living out of a suitcase, learning new cities and new people for the adventures, and at the same time, I’m working to make sure it all fits together! That being said, I wouldn’t trade it for the world.

Please tell us about Constructed Adventures.
Constructed Adventures is a personalized event company. I often tell people that I build “seemingly serendipitous days for the people who deserve them.”

I am known for pulling off the spectacular. I like to push the limit on what I can get away with. I love creating those movie-esque moments for people. To date, I have built 39 unique adventures. Each one different from the others.

I’ve flown people in chartered helicopters, I’ve pulled off wild marriage proposals, I’ve even had an otter hand off a clue!

If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
If I had to start over, I would have started sooner. My life has been much busier and more stressful since venturing off on my own, but it is a million times better than sitting in an office getting yelled at on the phone.
