I was so grateful to have Alex Charfen speak at at this year’s CapCon, as he shares the research he’s found all successful entrepreneurs have in common.

Freedom Fast Lane began back in 2013.

Ryan Daniel Moran ran it for over 5 years and then retired the show after completing the goal of finding personal financial freedom for life.

After a few exits from physical products brands (the latest of which was for over 8-figures in cash) and some well placed investments the journey was over. 

Now on the Capitalism.com Podcast Network Ryan is bringing Freedom Fast Lane to discuss building businesses and investing the profits after all he has learned.

Would you believe that there is a formula to growing your business, one that generates millions of dollars?

Mark Ford (pen name Michael Masterson) created it and has applied it dozens of times. There are four steps in this formula, and Mark shares them with us on today’s episode.

After growing a business to $65 million in four years, Mark took the process and duplicated it over and over again. Entrepreneurs who apply this process in their businesses experience success, and you can too.

Marketing is everything, and copy is king. Once you have those nailed, your business growth will take off.

 


Rule number 6 of Jordan Peterson's 12 Rules For Life is to set your own house in perfect order before your criticize others.

I talk about what this means to me and what this important lesson means for entrepreneurs.

- Ryan Daniel Moran


When starting your own product business, it’s easy to tackle a million and one problems at a time. Starting on the simplest problems first sets you on a much better path.

In this episode, Kevin Lavelle, founder of Mizzen+Main, shares how he made “the best damn dress shirt for men” that’s now worn by men across 50 states.

We uncover how Kevin built credibility through a crowded market, boosting immunity through making mistakes, and the risks of scaling too early.


This week on The One Percent Podcast (now on the Capitalism.com Podcast Network) I give a behind the scenes look at the empire we are building.

I am joined by my right hand man and content creator C-Money in the Tesla and we had a conversation about some big changes within the company, the hiring of new employees, and our vision for the future.

We run through our current revenue model, unpack the good - and bad - hiring strategies we’ve used in the past, and what to do with company profits to continue making an impact for entrepreneurs around the world as the brand grows.

What leads someone to become an entrepreneur?

And what happens when the early programming and patterns of life that lead to success are no longer serving you?

About half a year ago I shared my experiences I had during and after Burning Man, on my own journey of personal development.

I realized that I had been operating my life through the lens of "Not Being Enough" which lead me to a lot of behaviors and thought patterns that I want to change.

In this follow-up I expand on my thoughts about validation, ego, purpose, and how to bring your life into alignment.

Is your business a "lifestyle" business?

An escape from the corporate world? A means of independence?
Or the expression of a true passion? Could it turn into a long-term growth business?

There is nothing wrong with any of these strategies.

But it's important to get clear on the purpose of your business.

In this episode of The Brand Builder Podcast co-hosts Ryan Daniel Moran and Max Kerwick share their thoughts on operating a business you may or may not be truly passionate about.

Is the Amazon gold rush over?
Well, not necessarily... but you can't use the same strategies you were using in 2011 or 2012.

In this episode I'll be walking you through the model that we are following when it comes to building physical products brands.

Amazon is just a distribution mechanism. A place to sell things.

In this monologue I'll be sharing my current strategies for selling physical products and building a scalable & sellable brand in 2019.


How much do you need to earn to live the life you want?

As entrepreneurs so often we chase freedom and work ourselves to death waiting for a payoff to come later.

This is my keynote from The Capitalism Conference 2019. My first keynote ever at my own event.

In this presentation I wanted to communicate my own path in the empire I am building with Capitalism.com.

I wanted to communicate this idea that freedom IS the doing of what you really want. Today.

And ironically, when we are in alignment with our purpose and zone of genius, the money just comes easily.

How long can we go before the next recession?

Most entrepreneurs are holding on to their money or, worse yet, putting them into assets that will eat away at their wealth.

Acquiring a business can help you bypass the time spent on building a business from scratch.

But what happens when you acquire business which hasn’t been reaching its full potential? How do you change it into something which makes you money without you needing to spend all of your time on it?

Shakil Prasla buys online companies for as little money as possible, sits in the owner’s seat, and delegates systems and processes to a manager.
This has allowed him to purchase eight different online businesses, all of which he has turned into profitable enterprises which makes him money while he has little involvement.

In this episode of The One Percent (one of Ryan's most downloaded Freedom Fast Lane episodes) Shakil explains how his business model works, how he acquires new companies, and the process he takes to make his income passive.

Key takeaways: 
- How to pick profitable products for a long-term investment
- Finding good people for a successful online business
- Spotting growth potential in companies you’re interested in acquiring

The best audience to sell to is one you are a part of.

Being part of a community you truly understand the pain points, the challenges that come up, and where people want to go in that niche.

So when Jake Rhodes started making products for crossfitters he started to gain some traction.

But it wasn't until he learned how to create relationships with influencers and athletes that his business truly shot through the roof.

Should you invest in real estate, stocks, other businesses... cryptocurrency?

In 2019 we are looking at an unpredictable market.

Some say it could collapse any day.

Fellow entrepreneurs Mike Dillard and Jason Hartman are not so pessimistic.

But with the uncertainty of the economy I wanted to pick their brains about where they are investing their hard-earned money.

I have some of my own opinions as well.

Brooke Castillo inspires me as an entrepreneur.

She is the founder of The Life Coach School, a massive empire that trains and certifies life coaches.

She really likes money and her results speak for themselves. She has built a thriving 8-figure business while just a few years ago it was generating only 300k annually.

She has done all this while working only... THREE DAYS PER WEEK.

I thoroughly enjoyed this conversation and I think you will as well if you like money, if you like smart people, and if you'd like to have more free time I think you'll get a lot out of it.

What does it take for a brand to consistently sell $1 million+ every month?

This episode is specifically for those of you who follow me because you know that I have built physical products brands.

I have made the majority of my wealth by building, scaling, and selling profitable brands that sell primarily on Amazon. Some had their own online stores, some moved into retail, but almost all eCommerce brands run into roadblocks when it comes to scaling from 6 figures per month to 7 figures per month.

In this episode I talk about how you can take a business that is already up and moving and grow it to at least the mid 7-figures and closer to 8.
