I’m not the best at conversations. In fact, as a result of bad conversations, I’ve been dumped, individually downsized, and even disowned. It is these types of conversational trainwrecks that helped me to understand one very important lesson: Everything you have (or don’t have) in life is the result of conversations.
Getting hired, getting promoted, leading a team all depend on your ability to communicate your message effectively. Even in your personal life, getting into a relationship, getting married, and raising a family, conversations are the backbone of everything that we do.
So, if you want to improve your business, if you want to improve your relationships, if you want to improve your life, it all starts with a conversation.
In fact, let’s start that conversation right now…
Hi, I’m John Ryan and it’s nice to meet you!
As far as websites go, this is typically the part where I’m supposed to talk about myself in the third person and share with you all sorts of impressive information about me and my background. Instead, let’s have a conversation, as best as we can, as if we were meeting in person.
First, you might be wondering, “Who is this guy?” and more importantly, “Is he worth listening to?”
With regards to the last question, the answer is, “It depends.”
It depends on what you’re looking for.
Here’s how you’d know if it is NOT a fit:
- If you’re looking to grow your business from zero to $1 Million dollars a year WITHOUT putting a lot of time, money, or energy into your business, then I’m not your guy. Business requires work. Any “overnight” success involves a lot of hard work, dedication, and commitment.
- If your life is super amazing, your business is beyond expectations, and your relationships couldn’t be better…If that’s you, then, sure, we can hang out and I can help you take your business to the next level, but if what you’re doing is working for you, keep doing it.
Ok, so what WOULD be a good fit?
- If your business is not where you want it to be,
- If you know what to do in your business but are not putting your knowledge into action,
- If you want to step up as a leader and grow your team into their potential,
- If you want to master your communication skills to increase commitment, buy-in, and performance
You’re willing to do what it takes to create the vision you have for your life…
Then, we should absolutely connect and spend some time together because that’s exactly what I do. I help executives and entrepreneurs master their mindset and enhance their communication in order to lead their teams and expand their impact.
You might be thinking, “How do I know if I will like your stuff?”
The best thing to do is to check out some of my free stuff. (I’ll share where to find some of that down below at the bottom of this page). If you try out some of the things that I share for free, get a lot of value, and get results, then if you’re like most of my clients, you’re going to want to invest in my paid content and get even more results.
Now, when I give free content, I like to give REAL content. Have you ever downloaded a resource or attended a webinar with free content and it turns out to be “content free”? Have you ever done that…where you get all excited for some training and then instead, you get pitched the entire time?
Me too. And yeah. I don’t like that either.
Instead, I like to provide lots and lots of content, tons of value up front. And then follow it up with a simple invitation to take the next step.
Yes. I’m sharing with you upfront that I’m going to invite you to become a client. After all, isn’t that the logical next step in this conversation? If you have a need and I can be of service, that’s a fit. If not, that’s okay too.
The good news is that before I invite you to become a client, most likely, I will have given you lots of valuable strategies and ideas that you can implement in your business. I think that’s a really good way to start off any business relationship, is to give value first.
The idea is, of course, that you’ll check out my free stuff and say, “Wow, this is really good. I wonder what kind of value I would get with his paid content?” And then obviously we would figure out what is the best program or service to help you get the results you’re looking for.
That’s what a conversation really is…an exchange of value.
At this point, you may be thinking, “What’s the best way to get started?”
I recommend that you start by checking out some of my free stuff. If you like what you see, then chances are that you’ll like my programs or working with me directly.
To start, grab a free copy of my ebook, “7 Reasons Why You Need a Big WHY” to learn how to connect with your purpose and why it’s so important in creating success in business and in life.
