“How do I make the next sale?”
“What fire should I put out next?”
“I’m burned out, overwhelmed, and can’t seem to grow past the $1 million mark.”
We start businesses because we want to create something life-changing and exciting. But so many entrepreneurs end up instead feeling stuck in the worst job they’ve ever had.
That’s where three business owners were before the Capitalism Fund came in and set them back on track to quadruple or even quintuple their revenues. Not only did we make a financial investment in these businesses - we also helped connect the owners to resources that free them up to stay in product-creation mode.
Listen in to see if any of the fixes we did on these businesses might help your business, too.

Failure. The angst, the anxiety, the shame and fear it carries with it… no entrepreneur escapes the experience of failing. But what comes next after we fail can mean the difference between shrinking into the shadows or emerging victorious with a helluva great story to boot.
In this episode, I share a thought experiment you can use to process even your worst failure and completely reframe it in a way that sets you free. Spoiler alert: it worked wonders on a friend of mine who was willing to play along. She says it completely transformed her from feeling shackled to fear and shame to finally feeling free.
If this episode speaks to you, I’d love to hear about the mindset shift it sparks in you.

“Ryan, I just wanted you to know you’re my hero.”
Those were the first words I heard from Andri Sadlak. At the time, I didn’t know much about his story. I didn’t know he’d taken his first sale at one of our events, that he’d lost everything and started from scratch, and certainly not that just a couple of years later, he’d have a nice exit.
But all of this is part of Andri’s story. Andri followed my book, 12 Months to $1 Million, like a blueprint. He built a little audience, focused on delighting them, and built a business he could sell.
I’m excited to share this conversation with you, especially if you’re at the early stages of your journey. Andri is living proof that you can build a meaningful business with just a couple of products and a small group of followers.

One day, Jared Springer was on the verge of filing bankruptcy. Fast-forward just a little bit, and he sells his business for millions of dollars. Staring at his phone, watching millions of dollars hit his bank account, you’d think Jared would have been the happiest man alive.
But he wasn’t.
That is, until he discovered the secret anyone, anywhere, in any financial situation can use to finally be happy. As Jared discovered, with money, all of your tendencies just get louder and bigger… because now you have the time and money to amplify them.
On this episode, I’m sharing the conversation Jared and I had on a recent Wine with Wyan. Jared tells a harrowing tale of workaholism, physical paralysis, near financial ruin, massive success, and finally… happiness.
Jared’s the author of I’ll Be Happy When. Entrepreneur, my hope is that you will take what he says to heart now, while you’re building, so you’re not waiting for someday.
I would very much like to hear your thoughts on this episode.
