with Ryan Daniel Moran

Know how some discussions are important to have? You know you need to start wrapping your head around them, but it just seems more confusing the deeper you go. So you get with an expert because you know you’ll get thoughtful, knowledgeable answers to your questions. But sometimes, the expert is so familiar with the topic that you find yourself feeling even more confused the longer you talk.

That’s how it is a lot of the time for those of us who haven’t mastered the world of cryptocurrency. The vocabulary is unfamiliar. The concepts are complex. You could easily get lost in the weeds and decide it’s just too complicated to understand. No wonder so many entrepreneurs, despite knowing crypto is important to get to know, have thrown up their hands and said, “Nevermind.”

In today’s episode, you’re going to hear a conversation with Ryan and his friend Matthew Tremolada. Frankly, Matthew is so well-versed and deeply immersed in the world of crypto that it would be easy to get a little lost.

However, Ryan serves as your translator. You’ll take deep dives into some pretty heady concepts, but he won’t leave you there, flailing. Instead, you’ll come away with a greater understanding of this blockchain world, how it impacts your future as a business owner, and what you need to know as an investor.

“Hey Ryan, what do you think about Bitcoin?”

Most of the people who follow his work know how he’d answer that question. He’d say something like, “C’mon, be serious. It’s a fad. It’s not backed by anything. You’re WAY better off just building a business, which you can control. Then invest the profits in some nice dividend-paying stocks.”

Oh, but we’d be wrong. Now, anyway.

Ryan’s thoughts on Bitcoin have changed pretty dramatically. In this episode, you’ll hear his reasons for taking a serious look at cryptocurrencies. Plus, now that he’s digging in to learn more, he brings up some good questions any crypto investor should ask regarding how crypto might shape the future of the financial world and how we do business.

More than anything, you’ll hear what Ryan plans to DO about what he’s learned so far. This marks the start of a whole new discussion, and we’d love to hear your thoughts and questions about crypto as well.

Ryan Daniel Moran was recently at an investor meet up when he met a man with the most fascinating life story he had ever heard.

Having done 100s of interviews over the years this became an immediate top 5.

This man, Adel Sayegh, had everything you could ever want in life. He had everything entrepreneurs chase after and he lost it all.

In this interview he shares everything he learned through that painful process and what he now believes about life on the other side.

This is one you won't want to miss.

A nudge to make some long-overdue changes - like ending the self-inflicted pressure that says we have to do it all ourselves or watch our businesses crumble.

Rather than gunning the engine non-stop, maybe it would actually be more effective to just stop for a moment.

And maybe… just maybe, time spent resting might turn out to be the most profitable, productive time of all. One upside of getting knocked on your ass is that you finally gain supreme clarity about what really matters.

In this episode, Ryan shares how his experience with Covid brought him back to some wisdom he lived by and preached way back when he first started this podcast… and now he’s finally getting his own lesson. 

What braingasms will you take away from this podcast? We’d love to hear from you.

You want to build wealth? 

“Save your pennies.” 

“Work hard.”
“Live way below your means.”

“No matter what, protect your money.”

That’s the advice so many of us have heard about how to become wealthy. It might work… but it’ll take a long, long time that way because it means playing not to lose rather than playing to win.

What if we turned that around and played to win, instead?

This question prompted a thought experiment for Ryan that came back with surprising results. What if you took $1 million and invested it well enough to get a 20% annual return for 30 years? You’d cross the quarter-billion mark.

But what if you don’t have a million dollars to invest yet? And how could you get a 20% return per year? This episode answers those questions. But it’ll do something even more valuable for you. As you listen, you’ll find your brain moving beyond the shock of large numbers to reach a point of logical certainty that this is doable. What’s more, instead of advice that sends you into a frantic, hustling mode, you’ll discover how to reach this financial goal - or any you set - in a peaceful, freedom-filled frame of mind… and you’d be shocked by how quickly it can all happen.
