Ryan is 6-time entrepreneur with 4 successful exits, and has generated through his businesses over 750,000 customers all over the world. He has also travelled to 85 countries with his wife of 20 years and 6 children.
And yet, despite reaching some level of entrepreneurial success, he struggled for years with hidden diagnosis' of PTSD and DID. Faced with a choice of ending his life or finding healing, he spent several years and $300,000 on his recovery, and no longer qualifies for either diagnosis. And yet, he also came face-to-face with the reality that oftentimes the folks who need most need healing from trauma have the least access to it. He set out to change that by establishing HopeGuide.com, a trauma healing organization designed to reduce the barrier-to-entry for trauma healing.
