#159: Conscious Business with Ryan Blair

Have you ever wanted to start a business, but felt like you lacked the proper resources? Good news: you already have all that you need!  This week on YAP we’re chatting with Ryan Blair, a massively successful entrepreneur, author, and spiritualist.  While Ryan’s accomplishments are incredibly impressive on their own, they’re even more shocking when you learn about his backstory. He grew up in an abusive household that drove him to criminal activity from a very early age, dropping out of high school after his freshman year.  Ryan’s story is all about LEARNING how to become profitable, even when life deals you the worst hands possible. In this episode, you’ll learn how he built his most successful businesses and the mistakes he made in the process. Tunein to find out how to grow your financial capital from ground zero through investing, saving, and building a successful company!
