I saw an opportunity to join a team of highly successful coaches and proven leaders!March 14, 2019
Meet Ryan! He is a dedicated father, husband and a successful entrepreneur with Six Figure Profession. Like many of us, Ryan was searching for a career that allows financial and time freedom. Read on to learn why Six Figure Profession was a fit, along with his top three pieces of advice for entrepreneurs.
What is your business background?
At a young age, and after graduating from high school, I started my own business. Two years later, I found myself believing in those around me, chasing unreachable goals and ultimately preparing to file bankruptcy at the age of 20. What was it you ask? I had joined a Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) company, which like most others went out of business after five years. While I still believe I learned a lot from those two years, I can honestly say I primarily learned what not to do when owning a business. I moved on and decided to join the military and nearly 20 years later, I have experience with leading teams ranging from five to one hundred personnel. I enjoy tackling problems together and overcoming obstacles. While serving, I completed a degree in Business Management (BBM) and was selected for a commissioning program. I am now working hard each and every day with a real business that is producing true residual income for my family.
How did you get introduced to Six Figure Profession?
When I first saw what Six Figure Profession had to offer it just made sense to me. I saw an opportunity where someone like myself could get started and achieve real goals. I saw an opportunity to join a team of highly successful coaches and proven leaders. I saw a chance to learn from others and to truly follow in their footsteps. I did not have any reservations but rather challenges with working full-time in the military. I have since learned to balance my schedule. While naturally very busy at times, Six Figure Profession has provided me with the flexibility of building my business at my own pace.

What are your long-term goals in partnering with SFP?
To achieve financial independence and help others by doing so. I want to create an environment for my family where we can take weekend trips, or long vacations, and actually enjoy the time away. Whether it’s education, sporting activities or just having free time without the stress of life, I want the very best for my family. Personally, I look to expand upon my knowledge in the industry by learning from those around me.

What are your top three pieces of advice for entrepreneurs?
First, to never give up on your dreams. I feel that we often believe things will happen overnight. There are so many analogies to think about that help put things into perspective for me; a tree does not grow 10 feet overnight, a house is not constructed in just one week and a World Series is certainly not won without years of training and hard work.
Secondly, to remain consistent. Life will continuously present us with obstacles, some minor and others major, but we must stay focused on the road ahead. A temporary divert could be detrimental to your business.
And lastly, to have fun! If you’re not having fun, staying energized and waking up excited to start your day, then I believe you are in the wrong line of work. Or perhaps you just need to reconsider what you are chasing…
