Then his mother fell in love with a successful entrepreneur who took Ryan under his wing. With his mentor's help, Blair turned himself into a wildly successful businessman. He started his first company, 24/7 Tech, at the age of 21, and since then has created and sold several companies for hundreds of millions of dollars.
Now Blair teaches listeners how to start and grow their own profitable businesses by following his often contrarian philosophies. For instance:
In juvenile detention, In juvenile detention, if you let someone take your milk the first day, they'll start taking it every day. The same is true in business
When you're dealing with an investor's money, you have to act as if God himself wrote you the check.
Most business plans aren't worth the paper they're written on.
Efforts don't pay the rent. Have no sympathy for employees who talk about how hard they're trying.
Entrepreneurship is great because you can set your own hours - any 17 hours of the day, 7 days a week. But if you're doing what you love, it doesn't drain you as much as the 9 to 5 death cycle.

Great life story filled with valuable lessons. I really enjoyed it. This was the kick in the butt I needed. Perfect timing! Seriously there are NO excuses for not living up to our potential.

I came across Ryan's documentary on YouTube two years and was led to this book. I didn't buy it at the time I just added it to my wish list. As circumstances would have it. I wanted to hear something uplifting, something hardcore I could relate to. And this audio book was a great purchase. Straightforward and down to earth. Definitely something to lift you a little higher if you take the lessons learned seriously of course.
