Show Notes by Production Assistant – Anna Nygren



  • Ryan’s favorite part of his career are the live events – focused on leadership development and sales performance
  • Every day is a sales day


The Blend of Humility and Hustle

  • In any entrepreneurial journey, you start with nothing
  • Create balance and perspective for yourself to avoid burnout
  • You start at the bottom and you don’t know what good is
    • There’s only one way to go… Up.
  • Our brains are hardwired to keep us safe, which is why we’re afraid of failure
  • Don’t get comfortable. Stay in the learning lane.
  • The world is changing so fast that you’ve got to continue to reinvent yourself
  • Go all in on YOU
    • No plan fuckin’ B
