When Capitalism Causes Problems (Like Oil Spills & Inequality)
Capitalism causes big problems in the world. No, you haven’t accidentally downloaded a podcast from Socialism.com. Ryan hasn’t been taken over by aliens. You’re exactly in the right place. And if you get squeamish when people blame capitalism for disasters like oil spills and atrocities brought on by racism and racial inequality, this episode is exactly the one your brain will thank you for listening to today. As it turns out, having problems in the world isn’t actually a problem. In fact, by the time this discussion sinks in for you, you’ll have a whole new appreciation for problems. The bigger, the better! In fact, with this perspective, you’ll fall deeper in love with capitalism and entrepreneurs, too. But even more importantly, you’ll leave this episode with a highly-effective (and enormously lucrative) way to think about problems - big or small, personal, business-related, or global. “Get this” and you’ll have a whole new way of thinking about your financial freedom.

You Need 5,000 Customers to Make $10M
There are two humongous milestones in the development of your brand. The first comes when you reach the point of being “all-in” on it. Like, it’s not just a smart idea for a business. It’s not just a clear path to a million dollars. It’s not just something some investor might want to throw money at. Instead, it’s the hair on fire moment when you really see the massive positive contribution your brand can make in the lives of the people you’ll serve. It’s like the mission behind your brand takes on this feeling of enormity, urgency, and maybe even a sense of, “If I don’t do this, if I don’t serve my people with this, I am missing out on an important part of my whole purpose for being on this planet.” Ryan had that experience recently with his new brand, and he’ll tell you how he reached this point of going all-in on this episode. But the second milestone, that’s the one that may make this the most powerful episode you ever listen to. Why? Because for entrepreneurs looking to scale a brand, what Ryan shares with you in this episode will clear a straight path for you and help you to bypass popular pitfalls that could sidetrack you for years (or forever). Getting clarity on this singular question will not only give you a whole new perspective on how to scale… it’ll also help you make crucial strategic decisions easily and wisely.

How My New Project Will Become An 8-Figure Exit
Most success stories get told backwards, from the great win all the way back to the humble beginnings. Think of all those “they started in their garage” stories. They wouldn’t be nearly as compelling if the story ended in the founder going to work at a ‘regular’ job because of failing. A lot gets lost in the telling that way. Hindsight dictates which efforts, twists, and turns are worth recalling because they became significant. But what would it be like to look over Bill Gates’ shoulder while he built Microsoft in his garage? Or to stalk Target’s deodorant aisle with Moiz Ali as he built Native Deodorant? Wouldn’t you gather far richer insights by studying a brand in real time as it climbs to an eight-figure valuation? To see all the experiments, to understand the thought processes, to witness the moment when a brand caught fire? In this episode, Ryan sketches out his plan to take the Switch Supplements brand, and On Switch (its first product) from $0 to an eight-figure exit. Just as he teaches other entrepreneurs to build a million-dollar brand using his book 12 Months to $1 Million as a playbook, he’s following that same plan for this brand. As you listen in on his plan, you’ll pick up strategies and thought processes that can help you build your own million-dollar brand. Will the brand become a huge success? Nobody knows for sure, even though it sure looks like that. Either way, because you listened to this episode, you’ll have an insider’s perspective when it all shakes out in the end.

Bitcoin & Ethereum Predictions: How Crypto Will Affect Business w/ Matthew Tremolada
Know how some discussions are important to have? You know you need to start wrapping your head around them, but it just seems more confusing the deeper you go. So you get with an expert because you know you’ll get thoughtful, knowledgeable answers to your questions. But sometimes, the expert is so familiar with the topic that you find yourself feeling even more confused the longer you talk. That’s how it is a lot of the time for those of us who haven’t mastered the world of cryptocurrency. The vocabulary is unfamiliar. The concepts are complex. You could easily get lost in the weeds and decide it’s just too complicated to understand. No wonder so many entrepreneurs, despite knowing crypto is important to get to know, have thrown up their hands and said, “Nevermind.” In today’s episode, you’re going to hear a conversation with Ryan and his friend Matthew Tremolada. Frankly, Matthew is so well-versed and deeply immersed in the world of crypto that it would be easy to get a little lost. However, Ryan serves as your translator. You’ll take deep dives into some pretty heady concepts, but he won’t leave you there, flailing. Instead, you’ll come away with a greater understanding of this blockchain world, how it impacts your future as a business owner, and what you need to know as an investor.

I Was Wrong About Bitcoin
“Hey Ryan, what do you think about Bitcoin?” Most of the people who follow his work know how he’d answer that question. He’d say something like, “C’mon, be serious. It’s a fad. It’s not backed by anything. You’re WAY better off just building a business, which you can control. Then invest the profits in some nice dividend-paying stocks.” Oh, but we’d be wrong. Now, anyway. Ryan’s thoughts on Bitcoin have changed pretty dramatically. In this episode, you’ll hear his reasons for taking a serious look at cryptocurrencies. Plus, now that he’s digging in to learn more, he brings up some good questions any crypto investor should ask regarding how crypto might shape the future of the financial world and how we do business. More than anything, you’ll hear what Ryan plans to DO about what he’s learned so far. This marks the start of a whole new discussion, and we’d love to hear your thoughts and questions about crypto as well.

I Got COVID & It Changed My Life
A nudge to make some long-overdue changes - like ending the self-inflicted pressure that says we have to do it all ourselves or watch our businesses crumble. Rather than gunning the engine non-stop, maybe it would actually be more effective to just stop for a moment. And maybe… just maybe, time spent resting might turn out to be the most profitable, productive time of all. One upside of getting knocked on your ass is that you finally gain supreme clarity about what really matters. In this episode, Ryan shares how his experience with Covid brought him back to some wisdom he lived by and preached way back when he first started this podcast… and now he’s finally getting his own lesson. What braingasms will you take away from this podcast? We’d love to hear from you.

237 Million: How To Make A Quarter Billion Before You Turn 70
You want to build wealth? “Save your pennies.” “Work hard.”“Live way below your means.” “No matter what, protect your money.” That’s the advice so many of us have heard about how to become wealthy. It might work… but it’ll take a long, long time that way because it means playing not to lose rather than playing to win. What if we turned that around and played to win, instead? This question prompted a thought experiment for Ryan that came back with surprising results. What if you took $1 million and invested it well enough to get a 20% annual return for 30 years? You’d cross the quarter-billion mark. But what if you don’t have a million dollars to invest yet? And how could you get a 20% return per year? This episode answers those questions. But it’ll do something even more valuable for you. As you listen, you’ll find your brain moving beyond the shock of large numbers to reach a point of logical certainty that this is doable. What’s more, instead of advice that sends you into a frantic, hustling mode, you’ll discover how to reach this financial goal - or any you set - in a peaceful, freedom-filled frame of mind… and you’d be shocked by how quickly it can all happen.

I Spent $75,000 on Gary Vee's NFTs
I don't care who you are. $75,000 dollars is a lot of money. But that’s what Ryan just spent on Gary Vaynerchuk’s NFTs. As an investor who’s spent most of his life studying the stock market and a capitalist who’s raised and deployed millions of dollars through the Capitalism Fund, for Ryan to drop this kind of cash on something so… weird? Well, there’s got to be a good reason. The good news is, you don’t even have to understand what a Non-Fungible Token is to see what Ryan REALLY bought. After listening to this episode, you probably won’t be one bit clearer about NFTs. But you’ll leave with something far more valuable - a model you can follow to build social capital and to strategically position yourself to get in front of leaders, thinkers, and mentors you want to engage. Networking groups? Masterminds? They have their place. But this “strategy” can work even better, once you know how to use it. Why? Because when you come from a place of giving, service, and humility, wonderful things happen.

5 Tips to Earn More and Work Less
If you want to make more money, you’ve got to work more. Well, that’s what most entrepreneurs hear. But the truth is, if you want to make more money, you’ve got to think bigger… and that means you need time to be able to think big thoughts. Yeah, but if you’re like most entrepreneurs, you’re already burning it at both ends. You can’t remember the last time you had “spare” time - and to be honest, even if you’re squeezing all your priorities in somehow, there’s always this fear that something’s slipping through the cracks. Will this podcast episode magically help you reclaim an hour a day? Well, if that happens, it won’t be from magic. But that’s not even the big idea. Instead, here are five tips that, well, frankly, even if you followed just one, there’s no telling what would happen next in your life and business. This is one talk that’s always a hit in our community because it’s so impactful. That’s why we’re sharing it with you today. When that braingasm hits you, let us know.

The Business Opportunity No One Is Talking About
“You should become an influencer!” No. Don’t do that. The world has enough content creators hoping they’ll become the next famous celebrity putting their face on products from makeup to wine. But here’s a secret: there’s an enormous amount of opportunity for entrepreneurs who’ll partner with content creators who’ve built audiences. In fact, relative to the number of influencers out there, there are very few entrepreneurs capable of building a meaningful business selling physical products to these audiences. The opportunity lies in the wings, outside the spotlight. In this episode, you’ll see how you can partner with influencers who’ve already built one of the three crucial elements of a successful million dollar business. The best part is, up-and-coming influencers are waiting and wishing for someone like you to help them find another alternative to lame sponsorships. This is an opportunity to build a business that excites everyone involved. Here’s where the puck is headed.

The NEW Way to Build a 7 Figure Business
Question for you… Would you be okay with owning only 10% of the business you founded? Not so much? What if that business grew to be worth a billion dollars? Would you be okay with that percentage then? Ryan’s conversation with Brian Lee (founder of Legal Zoom, ShoeDazzle, Art of Sport, and the Honest Company) took a surprising turn when Brian revealed he “only” owns a small percentage of each of his businesses. But, as he said, "Look, I'm out to build billion dollar companies. I'm okay if I only own 10% of it." While most entrepreneurs wear all the hats in their businesses, clinging to their ownership stake rather than bringing others on board, the Owner’s Model Ryan teaches blows that model to smithereens. As Ryan asks, “Do you want to eat a grape or do you want to eat a slice of a watermelon?” When an owner is willing to build a bigger pie, everyone benefits. In this episode, you’ll discover exactly what you need to build a 7-, 8-, or even 9-figure business. And if you’re expecting to hear that you’ll need to work your face off for the next decade, you’re in for a very happy surprise.

Can You Have Faith and Get Filthy Rich?
“For the love of money is the root of all evil.” What’s an entrepreneur to do? We want to build something great, something that serves people. But we definitely want the money, too. Does that make us evil? So many entrepreneurs carry at least a little guilt when they hear this verse - or its more commonly misquoted version: Money is the root of all evil. That ends today. In this episode, Ryan puts his pastor hat on to do a little exegetical work on the Greek in this passage from 2 Timothy. As you listen, you’ll discover what the Apostle Paul was really saying. And as its true meaning sinks in, not only will you find yourself operating from a far more resourceful, abundant, and free state, but you’ll also find a whole new level of freedom and inspiration on your entrepreneurial journey. If this episode creates a shift for you, please share it with us.

What Does It Take to Be Rich?
“The top one percent richest people in the country” - in some people’s mouths, this is a slur. Others strive to reach this financial milestone. Still others passed it long ago and now live a life of financial independence. Helping people join the ranks of the one percent is what we do at Capitalism.com. But what does the math look like? How much wealth would put you into the one percent in the United States? Which assets count? And what would it take to push you across the line? How long would it take to get there, and is there a way to speed up the process? In this episode, Ryan and Justus talk cold, hard numbers.

3 Lessons for Happiness and Money
“First, I’ll make the money. Then, I’ll live a better and happier life.” That’s the lie so many entrepreneurs buy and live. Not because they want it that way, but because that’s the message so many of us hear. Granted, there’s a certain amount of hustle needed to get through the grind phase of any business. But that doesn’t mean you need to put off happiness while you “work your face off” to grow your business. It might even be fair to say that all the tactical advice you’ve heard about what it takes to make money misses the point entirely. The perfect ad, the right product, the best sales copy… all of that has its place. But those are not the most important puzzles to solve. Instead, when you learn to ask THIS one question first, all of the others fall in line. Not only will you find it easier to get wildly rich, but you’ll be a whole lot happier along the way.
