- Why we need to take our education into our own hands

- Why Ryan reads a book a week
Ryan describes himself as a curious person who has spent the last few years self educating and teaching himself practical skills he didn’t learn in school, including sales, personal branding, investing in the stock market, repairing credit, and even applied psychology.
He says he’s a living example of how having a bit of curiosity can take someone from clueless in life to achieving their goals.
For Ryan those achievements include becoming #1 overall salesperson in 2017 for Vodafone out of 1000+ employees, being awarded for having Best Marketing Strategy as part of work he did for Unilever, as well as building a stock portfolio that has outperformed the market for the past 6 years.
Ryan says he’s still on his journey to mastery in all these areas but he wants to share what he’s learning and help people on the way. He has recently started building his personal brand online focusing particularly on teaching principles of financial literacy to young people through his social media presence, online course and 1 on 1 mentorship program.
