Hi, I'm Ryan

I'm here to help people avoid what happened to me.

As a first time manager at a startup, I ended up in the hospital because of a mental breakdown caused by workplace stress. After going to a dark place with mental health, I discovered that putting your mental health first is the key to high performance at work.

My Story

On January 17th 2019, I checked myself into a hospital after having the panic attack to end all panic attacks. At work of all places.

Months of 80 hour weeks, feeling like I was a failure and worrying about things going wrong at work caught up to me.

At the time, ending up in the hospital was the lowest point of my life. I was ashamed of myself and thought I would be stuck like that forever, and that my life was over.

Now, looking back, it was the best thing that ever happened to me.

I got out of the hospital 4 days later and started looking for answers like my life depended on it, in a way it did.

I read every book I could find, got professional help, and chased getting better with everything I had.

I was able to learn skills that not only made my life better but took my professional life to a level I couldn't imagine.

Then I had this lightbulb moment of ā€œI wish someone had taught these skills to me earlier" so that's exactly what I started doing.

Against all odds, I went from completely hopeless to teaching over 3,000 people at some of the biggest companies on earth.

I started doing this to help people avoid what happened to me. I'd love to help you and your team.
