19-Year-Old University Dropout Turns a $5000 Failure Into an Online Business

Ryan runs multiple e-commerce stores and a support group for aspiring online business owners. He is a person who is an expert in his field and who truly cares about his student’s growth and upbringing. Ryan says, “Start from scratch. My decision to stop what I was doing and go back to the core basics was the one thing that helped me get to where I am today. Sometimes you need to take a step back to take 5 steps forward. Deciding to go back to the fundamentals of marketing is what helped me scale my e-commerce stores.”

Ryan’s key to success

The reason Ryan is here today is because of his perseverance. He says, learn to accept challenges, welcome them even, and you will become unstoppable. Even when you’re at your lowest point remember you have nowhere to go now but up.

How has Ryan learnt from his mistakes

The major mistake Ryan made was not having patience. Everybody wants quick money these days because that’s how it is advertised to us, but in reality, it’s not the case. Success takes time and dedication, it takes overcoming failures again and again and again. To succeed you got to pass tests, tests where you prove how bad you want what you claim you want, and with enough relentless tenacity, you will see yourself achieving exactly what you set out to achieve.” I learned to be patient, I learned to look at each challenge in the eye and casually say to myself, Ah yeah, another one, I got this.”

The inspiration behind Ryan’s success

The simple concept of freedom has led Ryan this far. “I see nothing wrong with ordinary life, but I knew for a fact that I wasn’t for me. I knew that if I had extraordinary goals then I had to be willing to put in what the average person does not. I had to put in EXTRA. Little did I know, I’d learn to love the process. “

Ryan’s upcoming goals

Ryan looks forward to having 1000 active members in his mentorship program.” I want to teach 1000 people how to build a lifestyle of freedom, I want to inspire 1000 people to go out and chase their passion no matter what society expects of them, I want to show 1000 people what’s possible when you take a chance and go after what you love.”

He wants to create the world’s No. 1 education platform for young aspiring entrepreneurs that creates hardworking champions better than traditional schools create 9-5 robots. “The entrepreneur gene is sadly ignored by all education systems, well not for long. I want my platform and service to be the #1 go-to place for people who want to be extraordinary.”
