This podcast will help you set your own big goals and get past the resistance that comes up and keeps us thinking small.

He started the company with $600 and Ryan and his business partner Matthew had dreams of scaling it to 100 sales per day and and building a million dollar brand.



The company went on to do far more than 100 sales per day and was acquired for an 8-figures by a private equity company.

3 years ago Gabe Klingman was making $18k per year working at Starbucks, trying to support himself and his girlfriend.

Now he has had 2 successful exits, one for a 7-figure brand where he was the operator, and one of those businesses was drowning in half a million dollars in debt before he came on and helped turn the company around.

Gabe focuses on two things - getting really great product reviews, and doing profitable product launches.

This is a very tactical conversation about strategies that just work. Strategies that work well now and will work for every niche, no matter what you are selling!

Right now audiences are being built on TikTok faster than we have EVER seen before.

Ryan brought on 3 entrepreneurs to this podcast who have built successful followings and launched products to them using the platform.

Most importantly, they discussed how to do this in a way that feels effortless, in a way that doesn't feel like a constant grind.

None of these guys felt like they had to dance or strain themselves to come up with content and yet they all built profitable audiences that allowed them to create full-time businesses - and 1 of them built their audience in only 3 months.

This stuff works.

Most entrepreneurs don't want to hear this.

And most listeners will not take this advice.

Because most business owners are operating from a position of trying to make money because they don't have enough, rather than creating something they know will impact somebody else.

In this podcast I share the mindset that will lead to the actions and tactics to create a $10k launch from day one with a new product.

In this episode, JP and Ryan talk Decentralized Autonomous Organizations and how they might alter the business landscape.

A DAO is a new way to structure business through collaboration and tokenization.

It differs from traditional corporate structure by not having traditional heirarchies, executives, or leadership. Instead, the entire community comes together and votes on the actions taken by the organization.

How will this work in a traditionally capitalistic society? That's what JP and Ryan explore in today's episode.

When you start focusing on building towards a vision, instead of just making short-term money, you end up making a lot more money.

Shannon Klingman grew Lume Deodorant into a 9-figure brand in under 5 years and she did it without raising capital, without any prior experience as an entrepreneur, and she did it starting in her late 40s.

Which should crush all of your excuses for why you can't do it too!

In this interview she talks about how to build a business from a mindset of freedom.
After she was turned down by investors, companies, banks, and an appearance on Shark Tank she decided to do things on her own, with the freedom to build the brand the way she really wanted to.

This conversation will inspire you to see what is possible with hard work and a commitment to tap into your full potential.

If you're a health nut you probably know this brand. They made bone broth BIG with a great product, timing, and marketing.

One of the mistakes Nick shares in this talk, is that he wishes he knew how to navigate the growth stage and scale properly with capital.

Now Nick has gone on to start a company that solves this problem. Upside Financing provides financing options for eCommerce brands so that other entrepreneurs can avoid some of the roadblocks Kettle & Fire went through as they were scaling.

One of our favorite brand builders, the serial entrepreneur Garret Akerson is back on the show.
Garret spoke at one of our Capitalism live events and you can find him on a previous podcast titled "How I Went From 0 To 1 Million Per Month Selling On Shopify" all about how he scaled his eCommerce business without having to touch Amazon.

But this time, after his recent healthy 8-figure exit Ryan wanted to ask him about what is really lighting him up right now - DAOs!
A DAO is a Decentralized autonomous organization - this is an organizaztion that uses blockchain technology to provide a secure digital ledger in a transparent way.
Garret Akerson is using this organizational structure at ClimateActionDAO.xyz to launch a constellation of 20 satellites to calculate the Earth's Radiation Imbalance (ERI), and become the oracle of climate data on-chain. Their aim is to tilt the climate back in favor of human life prior to reaching the point of no return.

And if you're suspicious of all the hype right now around Web3 and you know DAO becoming like a buzzword right now, Garret is right there with you.

But in this episode he described how they will *actually* change eCommerce and investing and business moving forward and all the exciting things on the horizon.

Founder of The Life Coach School, Brooke is a master of helping entrepreneurs work on their inner game so they can truly operate at their highest level.

Brooke invites Ryan and listeners of the show to look at their lives as though it was only a 2 out of 10 and to think about what they would need to change in order to arrive at an 8. Most of us just assume our lives are as good as they are going to get but Brooke says there is so, so much more...

Too often as entrepreneurs we sacrifice the best years of our life, imagining we'll be happier on the other end of some big, ambitious goal.

But what if we could learn to fall in love with the process?
In this solocast Ryan asks, "Is the grind even necessary?"

Many of the world's most successful business owners don't feel like they have to "grind" their way to success. Maybe we can enjoy the creation and building process from a place of service and flow...

What if God himself told you that you would win?

What if you KNEW for certain that you were on the right track and all of your challenges were temporary obstacles on the way to your success?

Ryan Daniel Moran was recently talking with Capitalism Incubator group and asked everyone to consider this hypothetical question.

This thought exercise was useful to move a lot of people past the fear that was holding them back from achieving their own greatness.
In this episode Ryan talks about how to use questions like this to shift our mindset and find success.

There is a lot of economic uncertainty in the air right now and fear of hyperinflation.

U.S. Inflation is well over 5% this year and entrepreneurs worry about price distortion and the buying power of their dollar.

But hyperinflation is defined as a period of time in which prices have risen by more than 50% per month for several months and we are very far from that.

In this podcast Ryan Moran shares his thoughts on what is happening in our economy, what to do about inflation, and seeks out where the opportunities lie in our shifting world.

Adam is a developer on and product manager of the KogeCoin / KogeFarm project.

But this conversation isn't really about Koge nor is it an endorsement in any way.
Instead it is a conversation where entrepreneurs like us can better understand where things in the DeFi space are heading and where the new opportunities may be.

Ryan has been going deep down the DeFi (decentralized finance) rabbithole for a few months now and he's learned a lot.

DeFi is the use of cryptocurrencies to provide liquidity to other people and as a result gain passive income.

The primary question is this: how is this expansion of the crypto market going to effect business?

Ryan is curious about the future of bitcoin and ethereum and where this is all heading but most importantly, in this episode he discusses how DeFi will actually effect business for entrepreneurs.

Coisson opened up his options trading class to our group only (seriously - you can't buy it right now except through The One Percent), and stacked a bunch of bonuses with it for the less than the price of most "courses."

But this talk is more than just about trading stocks, it's about finding any and all kinds of different opportunities and learning how to think like an investor - without letting fear and greed control us on our way to building wealth.

How do you become a pro as an entrepreneur when you are faced with payrolls and chaos and new ideas and content and teams and personalities and all the things that go into making up the life of an entrepreneur? What IS a professional entrepreneur?”

In this episode, Ryan brings back one of our most popular guests, elite high-performance coach Todd Herman. Why? Because he had burning questions to ask Todd - questions you may also be wrestling with as a big-thinking entrepreneur. 

Especially when you encounter challenges that feel like they could take you down and reduce you to rubble.

Ryan Moran's economics professor in college, Dr. Tom Lehman, completely changed how he sees saw the world.

Ryan began to really understand how supply & demand worked. How incentives can drive our world, for the good or the bad.

As we are living through an unprecedented pandemic and The Fed continues to print money to keep the country from falling apart, he reached out to Dr. Lehman to discuss inflation.

As the US dollar continues to lose more value, you'll learn what that means for you and your business in this episode.


Michael Dubin sold Dollar Shave Club to Unilever for $1 billion.

Alex Hormozi just wrote Ryan's favorite business book of the last decade.
It's called $100M Offers: How To Make Offers So Good People Feel Stupid Saying No
and you can buy it on Amazon for $1.

Alex went from sleeping on the floors of his gym to building a $30M/yr business in just three years… without taking on any outside investments.

He recently joined us in The One Percent community Live to take questions from fellow Capitalists.


“Cash is king,” they say.

But that’s thinking small. 

Sure, cash gives you purchasing power. But when it comes to growing your net worth and creating generational wealth, there are two types of money that are far more effective and efficient. 

In this episode, everything you thought you knew about wealth-building may go out the window. But, for those who are well on their way to building a billion dollars in net worth, it will be old news. They’ve already discovered what kind of wealth to optimize for in order to make greater progress, faster.


Some entrepreneurs don't actually care about their businesses.

They only care about the cash flow it produces. That’s why they got into it. 

Gary Vaynerchuk talked about this and how to balance hustle and lifestyle freedom on our way to achieving "impossible" goals.

The best businesses have operators behind the wheel with a true passion for how they can be of service.

This week we are sharing the Q&A from Gary Vee's talk with Ryan at The Capitalism Conference.

Some people take ice cold showers. On purpose. Why? Because among other health benefits, it’s an easy way to modify and optimize the way your body responds to stress.

 

But as an entrepreneur, what do you do to shock yourself out of being stuck? How do you level up and get to the next level in your journey?

 

As you’ll hear in this episode, one way is to purposefully put yourself in a room with entrepreneurs who are way ahead of you. They’ve accomplished what you’re after - and are now scaling heights you may never have imagined possible.

 

This is how we grow, how we gain insight, motivation, and proof that “yes, this is possible.” When we immerse ourselves for a few days in a network of extraordinary entrepreneurs, we are transformed. Plus, you never know who you’ll meet who will go on to play a key role in your journey.

 

In this episode, you’ll get a little advanced intel about the people you’ll meet when you attend this year's Capitalism Conference. Which one will you be especially glad you connected to, when you look back on this event as the pivotal moment in your journey?


Moiz Ali founded Native Deodorant 2 years before selling the company to Procter & Gamble for $100 Million.

How does that happen? How is there still so much money to be made in deodorant, and how can YOU sell products people will pay a premium for?

In this talk from a Capitalism.com event Moiz shares his journey, and how he quickly grew a brand that is now featured in Target and retail stores across America.


A funny thing happens after entrepreneurs have a big win.

Some dark, hidden part of us begins asking pretty terrible questions:

What if I never repeat that success? 

What if it was a fluke? 

What if I'm not that good? 

What if it was all my partner? 

What if I'm getting too old? 

What if I'm washed up now?

Even with evidence that we can win - because we have in the past, there’s this little part of us that is prone to feeling shame. Especially when we’re hanging around people who are further ahead of us in business or in life. 

So, how do we process that? How do we see ourselves clearly? And how do we use that awareness of “I’m not there yet” to move forward?

After hanging out with a few friends in Vale, CO who are richer and more successful than him, Ryan talks about his own insecurities.
In this podcast, Ryan discusses how you can work with the self doubt and shame you might carry with you to serve you rather than to cripple you.

Feel stuck in your business? Pretty normal for most entrepreneurs.

We also tend to doubt ourselves… wondering if we’ll ever reach our goals, make the money we dream of, enjoy the freedom we crave, or have the impact we long to have in the world.

Brooke Castillo has heard it all. She’s battled the same thoughts while building a multiple 9-figure business. And she’s got some coaching for you today.

“This is the best podcast I’ve ever recorded.”

That’s what Ryan said about this chat you’re about to hear. In it, Ryan and Brooke zero in on the limiting beliefs that hold so many entrepreneurs back from greatness, joy, and extreme success. 

Give it a listen and see if it doesn’t completely reframe your mindset and set you free to go create the business and life you envision. We’re going deep. You ready?

When you get to sit down with a founder who grew a million-dollar brand, you can learn a lot.

But when you can sit down with a founder who took what they learned by growing one million-dollar brand and used it to grow their next brand to $100 million in less than two years… that’s even better.

That’s the conversation we’re sharing with you today.

Ryan spoke with Gabi Lewis, who’s built a fast growing new cereal company in record time. Let’s just say his first business didn’t have the widespread appeal of tasty, healthy cereal that reminds you of Saturday mornings and cartoons.

How did Gabi approach funding? What did he do brilliantly to acquire so many customers so quickly? How does he approach sponsorships? And how did he talk to his first business’ investors about backing a second project when the first one didn’t perform as anyone had hoped?

You’ll find out exactly what makes the difference between a 7-figure business and a 9-figure one. Gabi’s been featured in Forbes and Time magazine. But this interview is the only place you’ll hear answers to the questions you have as a successful brand owner looking to scale even bigger.

Give it a listen and let us know which point blew your mind.


Alex went from sleeping on the floors of his gym to building a $30M/yr business in just three years… without taking on any outside investments.

What’s more… His business has helped more than 40 of his clients become millionaires.

Alex recently wrote a book that Ryan considers to be the best business book he’s ever read. Listen in on their conversation to hear more about the strategies Alex teaches, follows, and outlines in his book... and how you can implement them in your business right now.


Capitalism causes big problems in the world.

No, you haven’t accidentally downloaded a podcast from Socialism.com. Ryan hasn’t been taken over by aliens. You’re exactly in the right place. And if you get squeamish when people blame capitalism for disasters like oil spills and atrocities brought on by racism and racial inequality, this episode is exactly the one your brain will thank you for listening to today.

As it turns out, having problems in the world isn’t actually a problem.

In fact, by the time this discussion sinks in for you, you’ll have a whole new appreciation for problems. The bigger, the better! In fact, with this perspective, you’ll fall deeper in love with capitalism and entrepreneurs, too.

But even more importantly, you’ll leave this episode with a highly-effective (and enormously lucrative) way to think about problems - big or small, personal, business-related, or global. “Get this” and you’ll have a whole new way of thinking about your financial freedom.

There are two humongous milestones in the development of your brand.

The first comes when you reach the point of being “all-in” on it. Like, it’s not just a smart idea for a business. It’s not just a clear path to a million dollars. It’s not just something some investor might want to throw money at.

Instead, it’s the hair on fire moment when you really see the massive positive contribution your brand can make in the lives of the people you’ll serve. It’s like the mission behind your brand takes on this feeling of enormity, urgency, and maybe even a sense of, “If I don’t do this, if I don’t serve my people with this, I am missing out on an important part of my whole purpose for being on this planet.”

Ryan had that experience recently with his new brand, and he’ll tell you how he reached this point of going all-in on this episode.

But the second milestone, that’s the one that may make this the most powerful episode you ever listen to. Why? Because for entrepreneurs looking to scale a brand, what Ryan shares with you in this episode will clear a straight path for you and help you to bypass popular pitfalls that could sidetrack you for years (or forever). Getting clarity on this singular question will not only give you a whole new perspective on how to scale… it’ll also help you make crucial strategic decisions easily and wisely.

Most success stories get told backwards, from the great win all the way back to the humble beginnings. Think of all those “they started in their garage” stories. They wouldn’t be nearly as compelling if the story ended in the founder going to work at a ‘regular’ job because of failing.

A lot gets lost in the telling that way. Hindsight dictates which efforts, twists, and turns are worth recalling because they became significant. But what would it be like to look over Bill Gates’ shoulder while he built Microsoft in his garage? Or to stalk Target’s deodorant aisle with Moiz Ali as he built Native Deodorant?

Wouldn’t you gather far richer insights by studying a brand in real time as it climbs to an eight-figure valuation? To see all the experiments, to understand the thought processes, to witness the moment when a brand caught fire?

In this episode, Ryan sketches out his plan to take the Switch Supplements brand, and On Switch (its first product) from $0 to an eight-figure exit. Just as he teaches other entrepreneurs to build a million-dollar brand using his book 12 Months to $1 Million as a playbook, he’s following that same plan for this brand.

As you listen in on his plan, you’ll pick up strategies and thought processes that can help you build your own million-dollar brand. Will the brand become a huge success? Nobody knows for sure, even though it sure looks like that. Either way, because you listened to this episode, you’ll have an insider’s perspective when it all shakes out in the end.

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.

I don't care who you are. $75,000 dollars is a lot of money. But that’s what Ryan just spent on Gary Vaynerchuk’s NFTs. As an investor who’s spent most of his life studying the stock market and a capitalist who’s raised and deployed millions of dollars through the Capitalism Fund, for Ryan to drop this kind of cash on something so… weird? Well, there’s got to be a good reason.

The good news is, you don’t even have to understand what a Non-Fungible Token is to see what Ryan REALLY bought.

After listening to this episode, you probably won’t be one bit clearer about NFTs. But you’ll leave with something far more valuable - a model you can follow to build social capital and to strategically position yourself to get in front of leaders, thinkers, and mentors you want to engage.

Networking groups? Masterminds? They have their place. But this “strategy” can work even better, once you know how to use it. Why? Because when you come from a place of giving, service, and humility, wonderful things happen.

If you want to make more money, you’ve got to work more.

Well, that’s what most entrepreneurs hear. But the truth is, if you want to make more money, you’ve got to think bigger… and that means you need time to be able to think big thoughts.

Yeah, but if you’re like most entrepreneurs, you’re already burning it at both ends. You can’t remember the last time you had “spare” time - and to be honest, even if you’re squeezing all your priorities in somehow, there’s always this fear that something’s slipping through the cracks.

Will this podcast episode magically help you reclaim an hour a day? Well, if that happens, it won’t be from magic. But that’s not even the big idea. Instead, here are five tips that, well, frankly, even if you followed just one, there’s no telling what would happen next in your life and business.

This is one talk that’s always a hit in our community because it’s so impactful. That’s why we’re sharing it with you today. When that braingasm hits you, let us know.

“You should become an influencer!” No. Don’t do that. The world has enough content creators hoping they’ll become the next famous celebrity putting their face on products from makeup to wine.

But here’s a secret: there’s an enormous amount of opportunity for entrepreneurs who’ll partner with content creators who’ve built audiences. In fact, relative to the number of influencers out there, there are very few entrepreneurs capable of building a meaningful business selling physical products to these audiences. The opportunity lies in the wings, outside the spotlight.

In this episode, you’ll see how you can partner with influencers who’ve already built one of the three crucial elements of a successful million dollar business. The best part is, up-and-coming influencers are waiting and wishing for someone like you to help them find another alternative to lame sponsorships. This is an opportunity to build a business that excites everyone involved.

Here’s where the puck is headed.

Question for you…

Would you be okay with owning only 10% of the business you founded? Not so much?

What if that business grew to be worth a billion dollars? Would you be okay with that percentage then? 

Ryan’s conversation with Brian Lee (founder of Legal Zoom, ShoeDazzle, Art of Sport, and the Honest Company) took a surprising turn when Brian revealed he “only” owns a small percentage of each of his businesses. But, as he said, "Look, I'm out to build billion dollar companies. I'm okay if I only own 10% of it."

While most entrepreneurs wear all the hats in their businesses, clinging to their ownership stake rather than bringing others on board, the Owner’s Model Ryan teaches blows that model to smithereens. As Ryan asks, “Do you want to eat a grape or do you want to eat a slice of a watermelon?” When an owner is willing to build a bigger pie, everyone benefits.

In this episode, you’ll discover exactly what you need to build a 7-, 8-, or even 9-figure business. And if you’re expecting to hear that you’ll need to work your face off for the next decade, you’re in for a very happy surprise.

Hey brand builders, if you’ve ever wondered whether your business has what it takes to attract investors so you can take it to the next level, this episode is for you.

Inspired by the Capitalism Incubator’s recent Pitch Week, Ryan pinpointed four key questions every brand owner should ask. These are some of the questions investors are asking when they look at your brand to decide whether to take the next step with you.

If you can answer YES to each of these questions, chances are good that you’re building something investors would want to be part of. But if the answer to any of them is NO, don’t worry! You’ll also discover where to put your focus to get back on track. And remember - even if you don’t want investors, building a business they want to partner with results in a business you’ll love growing.

“For the love of money is the root of all evil.” What’s an entrepreneur to do? We want to build something great, something that serves people. But we definitely want the money, too. Does that make us evil?

So many entrepreneurs carry at least a little guilt when they hear this verse - or its more commonly misquoted version: Money is the root of all evil.

That ends today.

In this episode, Ryan puts his pastor hat on to do a little exegetical work on the Greek in this passage from 2 Timothy. As you listen, you’ll discover what the Apostle Paul was really saying. 

And as its true meaning sinks in, not only will you find yourself operating from a far more resourceful, abundant, and free state, but you’ll also find a whole new level of freedom and inspiration on your entrepreneurial journey.

I wanted to share a conversation one of my students, Debbie, and I had recently. Debbie’s making great progress in her journey of building a million-dollar brand. But like many entrepreneurs, this is not her first go at building something big. This time, she’s going at it using the blueprint I share in 12 Months to $1 Million. 

Debbie’s nailed down her audience and her product now, but asked me for advice on how to attract investors. As you’ll discover in this episode, there are three big things an investor wants to see in place before they’ll get excited about throwing their money behind a brand. Plus, and this may be the most important piece of all, they’re looking for a certain mindset… and they can tell within seconds whether a brand owner has it.

Take good notes so you’ll be ready when it comes time to pitch investors for your brand. And do let me know if you experience any significant shifts after you listen.

Are you facing a life situation you don’t want? Unhappy with your business, your money, or your relationships? We’ve all been there, wanting something to change. How long we stay stuck in that situation, though, largely depends on the questions we ask. 

In this episode, Ryan shares a line of thought experiments that will leave you in a more resourceful state of mind any time you use them. You can use what you’re about to hear to help yourself - or others - to leave excuses and paralyzing doubt behind. But even more, you can practice what you learn to create the life you crave, starting right now.

This is how you can change your financial situation, your relationships, your business… you life today.

“That guy. We want to invest in that guy.”

In this episode, Ryan Daniel Moran and Sam Prentice give an update on the Capitalism Fund for the second quarter of 2021. You’ll hear the surprising advice they’ve given Scott, Jesse, and Nick, the three brand owners the Fund invested in already. But you’ll also get a sneak peek into  the brands the Fund is in discussions with, before any ink hits the paper. Also, you’ll learn what Sam and Ryan look for in the entrepreneurs and brands the Fund invests in - and what an infusion of capital can do to grow a brand to 8, 9, or even 10 figures.

If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to bring on investors in your brand, and what would happen if you traded a bit of equity for what those investors could bring to the table, you won’t want to miss this frank conversation.

“The top one percent richest people in the country” - in some people’s mouths, this is a slur. Others strive to reach this financial milestone. Still others passed it long ago and now live a life of financial independence. Helping people join the ranks of the one percent is what we do at Capitalism.com.

But what does the math look like? How much wealth would put you into the one percent in the United States? Which assets count? And what would it take to push you across the line? How long would it take to get there, and is there a way to speed up the process?

In this episode, Ryan and Justus talk cold, hard numbers. But after listening, you’ll walk away with your brain buzzing and inspired. Could it be that you’re closer than you think? We’d love to hear your thoughts.

“First, I’ll make the money. Then, I’ll live a better and happier life.” That’s the lie so many entrepreneurs buy and live. Not because they want it that way, but because that’s the message so many of us hear. 

Granted, there’s a certain amount of hustle needed to get through the grind phase of any business. But that doesn’t mean you need to put off happiness while you “work your face off” to grow your business.

It might even be fair to say that all the tactical advice you’ve heard about what it takes to make money misses the point entirely. The perfect ad, the right product, the best sales copy… all of that has its place. But those are not the most important puzzles to solve.

Instead, when you learn to ask THIS one question first, all of the others fall in line. Not only will you find it easier to get wildly rich, but you’ll be a whole lot happier along the way.

My coach, Justus Murimi, sat down with me to talk about purpose. There’s a reason he has this conversation with every entrepreneur he coaches. It’s because it’s very easy to forget why we got into our business in the first place, and shocking to see what we unlock when we remember it. 

In getting crystal clear on your purpose, you unleash your power. But that’s not all. You also free yourself to be yourself, to step into your greatness, and to come from a powerful place of service. 

I’m excited for you to listen to this episode, and for it to turn you loose to create the business and life you’ve been craving.

This could be the most important decision a brand owner makes. 

On one side, you might look at your business as your baby. You’ve nurtured it from its birth, pouring your blood, sweat, tears, and money into it. Win or lose, it’s all yours. Even if that means you grow at a snail’s pace instead of taking off like a rocket.

And maybe you’re wondering whether the cash, connections, and advice you’d add with an investor could pour some gasoline on the little fire you’ve started. Are you ready? What if you mess it all up and disappoint your investors? What if they start getting power-hungry and you lose control? 

How should you think about taking on investors? In this frank conversation, you’ll hear from someone who’s been on both sides of this experience. Once you wrap your head around this discussion, you may find your whole strategy changes.

If you’ve ever lost money in business, this episode is especially for you. 

Until today, I’ve talked a lot about my eight-figure exit, how I’ve helped hundreds of people become millionaires, and the simple 12 months to $1 million plan I teach.

I haven’t been quite so public with my losses in business. They’re big, as you can tell from the title of this episode. They may actually be even bigger than $2 million, depending on how you count.

But as much as losing money hurts, there’s something even more destructive that can happen in the mind of a business owner in this situation. That’s why this may be the most important episode you ever listen to. 

Here’s the truth: you will have setbacks. Sometimes they’ll be big setbacks. Maybe really big ones. But if you can learn from my journey of coming to grips with my losses, you can pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and get back in the game a lot faster.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this episode - no matter where you are in your journey or how you’ve done so far.

Why do you do what you do? We all got into this game for one reason - the freedom to do what we are called to do. Often, entrepreneurs find ways to keep themselves busy. We pride ourselves on working to death and make fun of those who work a 9 to 5 for someone else without realizing that we are working double and are often less happy than those people. 

Here’s how to fix that. You can go from twice as busy and half as happy to spending your days doing what lights you up and creates change in the world. And you’ll make a lot more money, too.

Everyone wants to reverse engineer the successes of the most rich and famous people in the world... 

That strategy might look good on the surface, but in reality, it never works. You and I can never be Jeff Bezos or Elon Musk - and we shouldn't want to be! The secret to success is to be yourself. You can only be you. 

In this episode, I’m contrasting two ways I’ve gone about building my business. One leads to misery. The other one might not seem like it should work, but it’s how I’ve enjoyed the most success. If you focus on building your business from a place of creation instead of a place of desperation, everything changes. Your life and business change when you set out to create something meaningful, not just make profits.

Money isn't really real. It’s a tool that we use to formalize agreements with each other. Its purpose is to fund and sustain our service to one another. 

In this episode, Ryan shares some conclusions he’s drawn about how humans think about money. But even more, he digs into the emotional responses most of us have to money. He also suggests a thought experiment that can help you make money show up faster in your life. And you can do it just by tweaking the way you make decisions about money.

Give it a listen, then put these ideas to work for you. See how much more ease, freedom, and enjoyment you’ll create in your life as a result.

“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.
