For years, I (Ryan) have dreamt of building a digital publishing company and stepping away from the affiliate marketing business that I built in my college dorm room. After several years of saying that I was going to do it, I am nervous and excited to introduce Freedom Publishing Group LLC.
Freedom Publishing Group exists to inspire, educate, and empower people to live extraordinary lives. The goal is simple: to have life changing products in health and fitness, personal development, and freedom.
This blog will serve as a document of Freedom Publishing’s evolution as a company, as well as our coaching platform and inspirational blog for those who desire to leaving their 9-5s and doing what they want in life, which is where I believe that our world is ultimately heading.
The desire and decision to move into a publishing company, and away from a strictly “online business” training company, was based on a few factors:
1) I realized that my current business, which sold online business programs to the internet marketing community, did not have the room for growth to be the type of company that I wanted it to be. Try as I might, I have been (so far) unsuccessful at “unbranding” myself from the internet marketing world in order to rebrand myself as a representative of personal freedom and financial sovereignty, and that has to change. Furthermore, having all of the programs in my name made my business unsellable.
2) It became more and more apparent that having products in my name hindered the company’s growth. I felt as though I had to operate “in” my business, rather than focusing on my unique ability, which is coming up with ideas and taking fast action.
3) My current business had little capacity to operate in markets outside of the “internet marketing” community. This was incredibly frustrating for me, as it has been my desire to get out of the “make money online” game for a long time now. However, when your business’s cash flow is dependent upon Y-O-U, it’s almost impossible to make a change in direction. Therefore, we had to make a change in vision in order to get there.
Because of our exciting new direction, we are seeking a Vice President to lead the internet marketing division (which we will be calling the financial freedom division). An ideal VP would be experienced in building teams, seasoned in developing systems and processes, exposed to the internet marketing community, and based in Austin, TX. If you or someone you know may qualify, please write me at [email protected]
How Freedom Publishing Will Operate
Most of the internet marketing community, at least in the “make money online” space, is based off of the launch model. The process involves creating a new product, lining up all of your buddies to promote you, and then knocking it out of the park for a week. There is nothing inherently wrong with that as a business model, it just isn’t sustainable over the long term. As a result, most of the people in that space get stuck creating product after product which look eerily similar to the last one that they made.
That was me for a long time, and I no longer wish to operate that way.
The strategic objective for Freedom Publishing is to create systems and processes that allow for transformational products to be sold for years. Rather than having to do a launch every time you release a new product, it makes more sense to “McDonalds” the product creation and promotion process so that you can roll out new products that sell over the long term, and also ADD TO your company’s vision, rather than take resources away from it.
Freedom Publishing will have products in the financial freedom, health and fitness, and self development spaces. The reason these markets were chosen were based on the fact that they are a) personal passions of mine, b) mass markets with enough of an audience to be sustainable, and c) an extension of what I perceive make a person “free” (or sovereign).
I am both excited and nervous to finally be rolling out what I envision as my dream company. It’s not the $100,000 that I am investing personally… it’s more the realization that I am attempting to go to a new level that I once thought was impossible, and I’m not 100% always sure that I can hack it. But I’m doing it anyway. Thank you for your support over the years as I evolved from a kid building websites in my dorm room to an entrepreneur.
During this time, I am actively hiring a vice president, a full time affiliate manager, a profit center manager, and a programmer. If your skills are a fit for Freedom Publishing and you are based in Austin, TX, please drop me a line at [email protected]
CEO, Freedom Publishing Group LLC
Ryan’s motto is “live life to the fullest.” And, he certainly lives up to the challenge.
As a freshman at Indiana Wesleyan University, Ryan started a small internet business from his dorm room to help pay his tuition . . . and by the age of 20, he was earning a 6-figure income and other online ventures – all while continuing to study full time. Needless to say, Ryan’s “side business” allowed him to graduate debt free – with a nice chunk of change left over.
After college, Ryan expanded his online business and set out to see the world. His next big adventure? Inspiring others to live free lives and create their own destinies . . . just like he had.
With that vision in mind, Ryan created the Freedom Publishing Group LLC, which offers life-changing products in the financial freedom, health and fitness, and self-development spaces. The Freedom Fast Lane is a group of likeminded entrepreneurs who have a passion for sharing their skills to help others succeed in achieving their dreams.
Ryan is a world traveler, an avid Cleveland Indians fan, and a big fan of freedom.
