What matters is your mindset. The dedication to finding a way to make profits while keeping promises, to create jobs, to create companies, and to be part of companies that are finding ways to cut out the people who collapsed our economy in the first place."

Ryan Blair is utilizing the tools of entrepreneurship to build a new America. One where authenticity commands respect of the powers that lead and your contribution to society is not taxed, but rather, invested in. Where the more jobs you create, and the more problems you solve, the more you are rewarded. He believes we need to start turning our ideas into jobs, our purpose into products, and our services into service.
